Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“God guides to Himself those who turn towards Him, Those who have faith and whose hearts find peace in the remembrance of God…” Surah Ar’Ra’d – QN13:27-28, reminds us that, when led by God, we will always have peace even in the most difficult circumstances, but sometimes our desire to do certain things can become so strong that they produce in us, a false sense of peace which, as against that which comes from Him, is actually coming from our own excitement about the idea at hand.
In other words, we should not proceed if our inner peace cannot hold its weight against that which we think or hear.
So let the knowledge that:
1) When our thoughts, actions, and plans are approved by God, He confirms it by opening doors or windows of opportunity;
2) Once we have heard clearly from Him, we should do all we can to keep our peace and stop being anxious; and
3) There is power in decisions made when we are at peace with ourselves;
Teach you, this new week, when making important decisions, to avoid being anxious and hasty!
Pray with me: O Allah! Make firm my intention to obey You. Strengthen my insight in worshipping You. Give me the success of works that will wash away the defilement of offences. O Our Sustainer! Grant us the life of true peace and usher us into the abode of peace. Amin!
Good morning. God bless your week!
