Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“And, Your Lord has put a check on some men by means of others….” QN2:251 reminds us that, we should walk with the wise and not the fools. Hence, it is imperative to know who is sitting at our table so that we can pray for God to bring the right people into our lives, bless each relationship and give us the wisdom to handle the difficult ones in ways that please Him.
In other words, if there are friendships and relationships we need to walk away from, He should show us what to do and give us the grace and courage to do it.
So let the knowledge that:
1) God’s plan for our lives requires connecting with the right people and disconnecting from the wrong ones. After all, “God will not change the condition of a people unless they change what is within themselves”QN13:11;
2) He sends people into our lives who are godly, wise and in positions to help, bless, encourage and contribute to the quality of our lives; and
3) If we are the ones who need to change, He will work in our lives by His amazing power to get it done;
Teach you, if there are relationships that are draining and distracting you from His plans and purposes, to trust Him to either bring them to an end or change them for the better!
Pray with me: O Allah! I submit myself to You for great works and exceptional acts for a positive and sustainable life that will speak volumes of Your grace upon me and my household. Amin!
Good morning. Jumah Mubarak and a Happy weekend ahead!
