“When they ask you O Muhammed concerning me; say ‘I Am indeed close. I answer to the supplication of the suppliant when he calls upon me without any mediator or intercessor. So let them also respond to Me by obedience and believe in Me that they may be rightly guided”
That is the focal point of ‘candles to light your path’ this Ramadan…. ‘so let them also ‘respond’ to ME’… Allah Akbarrr!
This explains why Prophet Yunus (a.s) who after disobeying the command of Allah found himself in the belly of the fish and cried out in distress “Lai illah illa Antaa Subuhanaka Inni Kuntu Minaz Zalimeen” – “None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, Glorified and exalted are You. Indeed I have been of the wrongdoers” QN21:87;
is a reminder that what ultimately matters is the plan and pleasure of HE who has the right to make us into anything He chooses in order for His plan for our lives to be fulfilled and His pleasure in us, realised.
For that reason, seek the face of your Lord “And obey Allah and obey the messenger, so that you may be blessed” QN3:132.
So with an understanding that God alone, in His wisdom, makes decisions concerning our lives, keep the faith, listen to that silent voice of commend and willingly Obey His Will. In Shaa Allah, You shall continue to find favour with God and with Man for the fulfillment of your dreams!
Pray with me: O Allah! Thank You for Your love for me. Please make me rely on You and place me among the successful and those who are near to You, by Your favour.
Good morning. Ramadan Kareem!!!
