Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of night and day,- there are indeed Signs for men of understanding” Surah Aal-I-Imraan – QN3:190, reminds us, that the world is created to be in season and out of season; And just as the root system that is required for strong, healthy growth takes time to develop and the fertilizer that smells so bad is in the process of producing the highest quality crop, the richness and stability that come from ‘small beginnings’ and gradual success are more lasting than the temperamental theatrics of those who have never learned their own vulnerabilities or developed a true sense of dependence on God.

In other words, just as in the tradition of the Prophet(s.a.w) that says, “Verily, in your lives, there are breezes of grace and mercy that will blow, indeed you should take advantage of them”; God gives us grace for the season we are in, not the one we were once in or would rather be in.

So let the knowledge that:
1) God does everything in accordance with His own set time and purposes;
2) If we ask, He will show us the season we are in and how to make it the most productive in our lives; and
3) In our later years, we should focus more on pouring our life’s experiences into our successors;
Teach you, rather than being resentful that your days as a player are over, to use the “means of what Allah has given you, to seek the abode of the Hereafter, while not forgetting your share of this world.” Surah Al-Qasas – QN28:77. In other words, accept the reality of your situation and focus instead on mentoring the next generation! Ma Shaa Allah!

Pray with me: O Allah! Please do not make our share of this world whither away. Please make us more submissive to You, and raise from our offspring a generation submitting to You and show us our ways of devotion and turn to us mercifully. Surely, You are the Most Merciful, Most Compassionate. Amin.

Good morning. Jumah Toyyibah and a blessed weekend ahead!

There is love in sharing
