Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“Remember GOD’s blessings upon you…You shall observe GOD; in GOD the believers shall trust.” Surah Al-Maaida – QN5:11, reminds those who have a tendency to remind others of the good they have done and the sacrifices they make each day that, we all deserve recognition for the good we do and we thrive on appreciation which, lots of times we simply do not get it, but our real reward, the one that matters the most, comes when we find peace in the remembrance of our God, which gives us the soothing words, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant!’
In other words, trying to run on the fuel of other people’s encouragement and praise, steals our joy, when it fails to come as expected.
So let the knowledge that:
1) In the remembrance of Allah is our joy and strength, which keeps us walking without fear;
2) Living this way makes us self-starters and successful finishers; and
3) When that happens, we will find favour at home and on the job, and end up with more friends than we know what to do with;
Teach you, with a clear understanding that which is expected of you, to stay the course and keep on walking!
Pray with me: O Allah! Help me to remember Your favors and mercy upon me always that I may keep glorifying Your Name and amend my ways to walk in Your words for a successful start and glorious finishes in all my endeavours. Amin!
Good morning and have a fantastic week!
