The passage, “… Allah will guard them against the evil, and will grant over them a Light of Beauty and blissful joy.” QN76:11 serves to reminds us that with our wellness to submit to God’s will, comes great responsibility. We are now responsible for our own happiness and for our own success. And success, as we are beginning to discover is the ultimate prize. If we are judged successful, Paradise becomes our eternal abode; health, wealth and happiness now become eternal. Success in Islam is defined as achieving the ultimate result, or Paradise. Whatever success we achieve along the way whether it is financial, health-related or a satisfying lifestyle is finite. It will come to an end. Hence, as believers, we should ‘learn to live and rule by being obedient.’
In other words, if we are willing and obedient, we shall receive light of beauty and blissful Joy.
So let the knowledge that:
1) Obeying God leads to peace, progress, protection, and promotion;
2) But we can choose to live by our own impulses or live according to the instructions that He has given us in His Word; and
3) We can also choose to go according to our own best thinking, or submit ourselves to the rule and the leading of the Spirit who lives in us;
Teach you, knowing He has beautiful promises and good things in mind for you this year, to be calm and listen to His whispers and always do what He says!
Pray with me: O Allah! Grant me the beauty and success in this world and hereafter.
Good morning. Have a blissful week!
