Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“If you would count the favours of Allah, never would you be able to enumerate them” Surah An-Nahl – QN16:18, reminds us that, “if anyone puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is Allah for him. For Allah will surely accomplish his purpose” Surah At-Talaaq – QN65:3. Hence, to be ‘good’ or being good, means living up to the best we know and God who is Omniscience and Most Beneficent, knows what our best is, His goodness is beyond all question and because He is good and not just pious, but really, practically, consistently good, our cup of well-being, security, peace, confidence and joy will always overflow.
In other words, He is good all the time and it is what we believe about Him that will manifest itself in the way we live.
So let the knowledge that:
1) God will never break His promise, abandon us or fail to love and bless us;
2) We can be sure that in every circumstance He will treat us in the best possible way; and
3) Without undergoing the ‘wreck’ stage, during which its world literally falls apart, an acorn could never give life to an oak tree;
Teach you, even when the world is looking like a wreck to you, to see it as the wreck of a bursting seed that yields multiple fruits!
Pray with me: O Allah! I ask You for the goodness of this day and goodness all the days of my life. I seek refuge in You from the evil of this day and subsequent days, gui
de me from laziness of the soul, nourish my heart thickly rich with Your love, and perfect Your favour upon me and my household. Amin.
Good morning and have a great week!
