Divine Wisdom: The passage, “Allah has created man in the best of moulds”QN95:4, reminds those of us who have formed a habit of always saying things like, ‘It’s just my nature to worry’, ‘it’s stupid of me to have forgotten’, I’ll always be pessimistic’ or ‘I’m just that way’ that, because God can change us, we don’t have to live the rest of our lives with our phobias and hang-ups, ‘cause all of these negative conceptions contradict our faith.
In other words, just as we would seek help if our bodies malfunction, we should do the same with our sinful appetites, our sour attitudes, and our selfish tirades by turning only to our Creature.
So let the knowledge that:
1) What the world sees as rubbish, God sees as treasure;
2) Like the potter, He can take us, mould us and make us into vessels of honour; and
3) When we stop trying to change ourselves and surrender to God, true and lasting change takes place;
Teach you this bright Monday morning, that all you need do, is place your life in His hands and all will be well Ma Shaa Allah!
Pray with me: O Allah! I come in need of Your help to banish all negative thoughts that may have been an hindrance to accomplishing my goals and encompass me with the power of positivity to fulfill Your purpose for me, by Your Grace, Amin.
Good morning and have a productive week!
