Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“And that you should serve Me with all your heart; this is the right way.” Surah Yaasen – QN36:61, reminds those who think the best way to avoid getting hurt is to stay well clear of risks that, like the birthing table which is designed to hold the mother in position in spite of pain and discomfort, it is the burning effect of a vision that keeps us from either losing our way or getting swallowed up by temporal things.
In other words, there is no better cure for our current pain than our desire for success.
So let the knowledge that:
1) Those who love the Lord with all their hearts, trust Him with all their hearts and seek Him with all their hearts, will find Him;
2) Consistent prayer and daily reading of His Word will hold us in place when we are tempted to give up or lose focus; and
3) Success belongs to those who learn to maintain positions of faith even when exposed to extreme pain and pressure; Teach you, at a time like this, to pray for the repose of those souls lost in our struggle, thank God for our lives and stay focused while we keep right on walking in the right direction with faith!
Pray with me: O Allah! We seek forgiveness of our sins, please accept our repentance. We pray for the repose of the souls of all lives lost. Please grant us the strength to accept Your will and do not condemn us if we fall into error. We seek Your divine intervention, Ya Allah! Direct our paths right, protect us and our children from any form of calamities and help our Leaders to retract, walk in the right direction as pleases You, and bring calmness and peace unto our land. Amin!
Good morning. Jumah Kareem and a Blessed weekend ahead!
