Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“O you enveloped in your cloak, Arise and warn! Your Lord magnifies, your raiment purifies, pollution shuns! and show not favour, seeking worldly gain! For the sake of your Lord, be patient!”QN74:1-7, reminds us, of the revelations made to PHT Muhammed (s.a.w) in the Cave of Hira, that the commencement of the divine inspiration to the Messenger of Allah was in the form of good dreams which came true like bright daylight, and then the love of ‘seclusion’ was bestowed on him. Pht Muhammed (s.a.w) had his special place in Cave Hira where he met in solitude with God to pray, meditate and seek the face of God, and this was where the Revelation of The Holy Quran commenced. Allah Akbar!!! With the understanding, in seasons of distress and grief, our souls will find relief and escape temptation when we return to our sweet hour of prayer.
In other words, we need to establish similar places in our lives where we can turn to God when problems and pressures threaten to overwhelm us.
So let the knowledge that:
1) Our God place should be somewhere that, after we have been there a while, a kind of aura will surround it;
2) It could be a secluded corner in our home, where we will create memories of intimate times with Him and they will become our nature reserve, a place of refuge and safety; and
3) Those who dwell in the secret place of God Almighty will enjoy His Divine protection;
Teach you, whatever name you choose to call it, that God is keeping us at home to isolate us and concentrate on establishing that special place in your life. So if you haven’t established that special place, now is the time to find it.
Pray with me: O Allah! Thank You for this beautiful day. I praise You, for saving me from what You have afflicted and for favouring me more than any of Your creatures. Please, never leave me out from Your protection and blessings.
Good morning and have a splendid week!
