Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“men who made excuses and claim exemption… merely sat inactive.” QN9:90 reminds those who keep thinking they have good reasons for saying no to God that, when He speaks, it is the moment of truth when we either make a commitment or make an excuse, but because fear usually comes dressed as an excuse, we tend to waver or pull back, and in the process, lay another brick in the wall that will ultimately keep us from reaching our God-ordained destiny.
In other words, at such times when God opens up an opportunity for us, know that we are making decisions that will determine our destiny.
So let the knowledge that:
1) Ninety-nine per cent of failures tend to come from those who have perfected the art of making excuses;
2) Opportunity is a visitor that is not likely to come tomorrow and is often lost in deliberation; and
3) When we hesitate out of fear of failure or being criticized, we miss out on that which the Almighty is asking us to do;
Teach you, today if God is telling you to do something, to take His hand and move while the door is wide open!
Pray with me: O Allah! Thank You for the gift of life. I seek Your divine grace In identifying new opportunities and taking the right decisions towards achieving greater successes this week and beyond.
Good morning and have a fruitful week!
