Divine Wisdom: The passage, “Man is created of the best design” QN95:4 and “Praise be to God, Lord of the worlds, the Compassionate, the Merciful” QN1:2-3, reminds those who have accepted that they are ‘less than’ normal that, whether it started with critical parents, condemning adults, unwise teachers, cruel classmates or verbally abusive spouses that, Satan is the father of lies who uses others to lie to us about our worth and potential, so we must firmly believe that God designed us physically, intellectually and temperamentally, and He gave us an assignment no one else can fulfil.
In other words, He made us so wonderfully complex, His workmanship is marvellous, and we know it.
So let the knowledge that:
1) God created and watched us as we were being formed and woven together in the darkness of the womb;
2) He saw us before we were born and recorded every single day of our lives in His book; and
3) Putting ourselves down may seem humble, but it is actually a form of pride which causes us to reject His design and plan for our lives;
Teach you, starting today, to think of ways in which you can use your unique features to glorify Him and be a blessing to others, cos it is only then that you appreciate His Favor upon you!
Pray with me: O Allah! Only Your face I seek. Bestow Your Favour and Mercy upon me and my household that we may find Favour in all areas of our lives and perfect all that concerns us, by Your Grace. Amin
Good morning and enjoy a lovely week!
