Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“We hear and we obey”: it is such as these that will prosper and attain felicity.” Surah An-Noor – QN24:51, reminds us that, unlike the man who refused to share the secret of his success with his friends because to him, it was a secret, that if told may erode him of his success; but Success, as God defines it, is not a secret, but as He repeatedly says in His Word, something He wants us to attain in life and just as our faces differ, so does His ultimate plan for each of us.
In other words, success simply means discovering His 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 plans for our success comes with a caveat that is non-negotiable and He blesses us in order to make us blessings to others; and
3) Though our beginnings may be small, as we progress in life with Him on our side, we will continually increase;
Teach you, as we start this new week on a bright note, to carefully follow the terms of your unique covenant with Him and seek His favour so that you may continue to prosper and attain ultimate happiness!
Pray with me: O Allah! Please guide me to trust in Your plans, and cause for things to work out the way they should. Please give me the strength to believe that in this week and beyond, I shall feel and experience generous upliftment by Your Grace. Amin.
Good morning and have a prosperous week!
