Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“God does not change the condition of a people unless they change what is in themselves” Surah At-Ra’d – QN13:11, reminds us that, if we fail to get help for our past emotional hurts and instead, we will find ourselves treating others like we were treated, repeating our past in our present and keep blaming the failure of the relationship on our partner’s habits, looks, attitudes and ways of going about things, but in so doing, we will remain emotionally stuck and trapped by the unhealed and unrecognised sources of our dysfunction.
In other words, we will end up hurting the most important people in our lives and ultimately destroy valuable relationships without really knowing why.
So let the knowledge that:
1) Once we get rid of sin and learn to leave all iniquity behind us, our heart opens up and become beautiful for all those who surround us to see and experience;
2) We will be strong and free of fear, forget our misery and become like water flowing in a river; and
3) We will be protected, rest in safety and many will start looking to us for help;
Teach you, in order to have a proper appreciation of what you have, to always pray for a discerning spirit!
Pray with me: O Allah! Forgive us our iniquities, help us to change whatever is within us to bring forth the fullness of Your goodness and give us good in this World and in the Hereafter, and protect us from the torment of the Fire. Amin!
Good morning. Jumah Kareem and a Blessed weekend ahead!
