Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“… find peace and tranquillity in the remembrance of Allah, it is only in the remembrance of Allah that the heart will find contentment.” Surah Ar-Rad – QN13, reminds those who are experiencing mood dips and loss of energy, seeing God as distant, no longer feeling the urge to pray and having a bleak outlook on life that, if we turn everything over to God, He will speak to us in His still small voice, reassure us that we are not alone and, give us the courage and other tasks to fulfil.
In other words, there will always be people out there who are working to undo our best efforts and bring us down, but if your foothold is strong, then you will never be moved.
So let the knowledge that:
1) When we have achieved major victories in our careers, the Devil will step in and make us feel worthless, hopeless, isolated and unable to cope;
2) If we focus too much on how we feel, it will affect our thinking and ultimately, our outlook on life; and
3) The key to continued progression in life lies in learning to control our thought process;
Teach you, this last Friday of the Hijrah 1442AH and as we step into a New Year, particularly if you are going through a rough time, to ask God for strength to keep on walking in!
Pray with me: Our Lord! Pour patience down on us, make our foothold firm, keep us on the right path, and bestow upon us favours from Yourself. Ya Rabb! Help us live a genuine and peaceful life that will positively touch others and grant us Your divine victory in all our affairs. Amin
Good morning. Jumah Mubarak and a great weekend ahead!
