Divine Wisdom: The passage, “Verily, In the Remembrance of Allah do minds find rest” QN13:28, reminds us that, contrary to what a lot of religious people seem to preach, God did not say, ‘Come to Me and I will give you more guilt, more burdens, more stress, and more worries, ’rather, He said, “Remember Me, I will remember you” QN2:152 and “indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me by obedience” QN2:186. Therefore, when we give our lives with all its stresses over to Him, He will give us a new life, replace the pressure we feel with the peace He offers and help us to follow His principles of stress management. A life filled with inner satisfaction.
In other words, while some people are busy creating pressure instead of relieving it, our Mighty God, the God of peace and safety, Our Savior, will give us peace of mind and abundance of His grace.
So let the knowledge that:
1) The greatest source of stress comes from living our lives apart from the One who made us and trying to be our own god;
2) We will never enjoy complete peace of mind until we develop a relationship with Him; and
3) When we get in harmony with Him, He will give us inner strength;
Teach you, if the load you are presently carrying is too heavy for you to bear that, it’s either that others may have given it to you or you may have taken it upon yourself, but your God had no part in it. Instead, He wants you to believe in Him completely and thereafter listen to that silent voice for directions as well as identify those people He has sent to you to help in fulfilling your purpose!
Pray with me: O Allah! Help me create a team that will help in accomplishing my dreams without stress. In the abundance of Your Grace I wish to dwell forever.
Good morning and have a wonderful week!
