Divine Wisdom: The passage, “when My servants ask you concerning Me, I am indeed close to them; I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he calls on Me, so they should answer My call and believe in Me that they may walk in the right way.”QN2:186, serve to remind us there is no partiality with God, and that when we humble ourselves in His sight, He lifts us up when we seek His face wholeheartedly, He answers us and even does the most unexpected. Just as God accepted ‘the humble effort’ of Pht Ibrahim(a.s) when He and his son built the Kaaba and glorified his generation as nations to be reckoned with; so also, when we strive to see that our feelings, thoughts, actions and words line up with His, we have every right to believe that God will do the same for us.
So as we all prepare to Cross-over into the New Year 2022, let the knowledge that:
1) God’s plan for us was established long before we were born; and
2) God loves and rewards those who are humble and exalt Him always;
Teach you to make a New Year Resolution that’ll help you discover and fully actualize His plans for you in 2022 Ma Shaa Allah!
Pray with me: Our Lord! Thank You for the gift of life as the year comes to an end. Please fill the forthcoming year with things that are truly good, the comfort of warmth in our relationships, strength to help those in need, the openness to accept help from others and the humility to serve You as desired, Amin.
Good morning. Jumah Kareem and a splendid New Year 2022, In Shaa Allah!
