Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“Woe unto worshipers, who are unmindful in their prayer.” QN107:4-5, reminds those of us who when we pray, sometimes ask God to protect or provide for us and if He would just help us in particular situations, would be so thankful, which is a humble way of saying we hate to bother Him with our problems, but in reality, it only demonstrates our lack of faith and confidence in approaching Him. In essence, those Praying without earnestness, just to receive favour, but little do they hold Allah in remembrance.
In other words, if our hearts do not condemn us, we will have confidence before Him and receive anything that we ask for.
So let the knowledge that:
1) As good Servants, we can approach our God with confidence, knowing whatever we need, He will provide, and much more;
2) He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we ask or think; and
3) If we ask anything according to His will, He will hear us – QN2:186;
Teach you, to always approach His throne of grace with confidence, knowing you will receive mercy and find grace to help you in our time of need!
Pray with me: O Allah! Thank You for Your word which is alive and powerful. Grant me pure faith in You and total confidence in Your promises. I set my mind on Your promises and choose to declare what You say about me. Thank You for Your faithfulness, as I move forward in the good plan You have for me, this new week and beyond. Amin.
Good morning. Have a pleasant week!
