Divine Wisdom: The passage, “… that you may know each other, not that you may despise each other”QN49:13, reminds us that, when God calls us to a special destiny, not everyone will be happy about it. Some will despise us and refuse to recognise our new positions, but knowing it’s our gifts and the results they produce that will validate our calling, and having heard from Him, we will be able to hold our peace and those criticisms will affect us less.
In other words, it is not our responsibility to convince others of our calling, but theirs, to discern it.
So let the knowledge that:
1) God has spoken, His words have settled every issue and time will prove Him correct;
2) After we might have heard His Voice, the flattering words of others will no longer have an effect on us, because both our feet are firmly on the ground and our instructions are clear; and
3) We will not require the praise of others, for His confidence in us will satisfy us completely;
Teach you, instead of comparing yourself with others and putting yourself down, to celebrate each small step of faith you take on the way to your God-given destiny! Ma Shaa Allah!
Pray with me: O Allah! Thank You for Your favour and blessings upon my life. Today, I commit to be diligent, and live in excellence, and do everything in the best of my ability to live up to Your expectations of me. So help me by Your Grace. Amin
Good morning and have a great week!
