Divine Wisdom: The passage, “…fear Allah and believe in His apostle and He will bestow on you a double portion of His Mercy: He will provide for you a light by which you shall walk straight in your path and prosper” QN57:28, reminds us that, unlike the man who refused to share the secret of success with his friend because to him, it was a secret. ‘Success’ as God defines it, is not a secret and as He repeatedly says in His Word, He wants us to be successful in life, but just as our faces differ, so does His plan of success for each of us differ.
In other words, success is simply discovering God’s will for our lives and following them to the letter.
So let the knowledge that:
1) When God created man, one of the first things He told him to do was to be fruitful and multiply;
2) His ordained success comes with a caveat which is non-negotiable – He will bless us in order to make us blessings to others; and
3) Though our beginning may be small, as we progress in life with Him on our side, we will increase abundantly;
Teach you, this new week, to carefully follow the terms, so that He may provide for you a light by which you shall walk straight in your path that you may prosper in everything you do!
Pray with me: O Allah! Thank You for the gift of life and a bright new day. I seek Your face in all that I do. Guide me right and perfect my cause for me that I may continue to prosper by Your Mercy, and make a blessing to others!
Good morning. Have a wonderful week!
