Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“And you shall not find any alteration in the ways of Allah; and you shall not find any change in the ways of Allah”QN35:43, reminds those who, because of the disappointing outcome of yesterday may have had a traumatic night-time experience that, this world is a place of struggle and competition; the life is a chain of never ending changes and transformations. Hence, our drive to survive comes from a well that is already within us and God Almighty, who brought us through every difficulty in the past, has already promised to be with us every day of the future – QN94:5.
In other words, times change and relationships change, but the Lord Almighty, remains ever constant.
So let the knowledge that:
1) Joy is at the end of every dark night and every broken promise, and it always comes; 2) As the popular saying goes ‘If it were not for hope, the heart would break’; and
3) Yesterday ended last night and today is a brand new day; Teach you, no matter what you may be going through right now, to make up your mind, with eyes firmly fixed on your God, as only He can do that which you so desire.
Pray with me: O Allah! I pray this day for strength, I ask for the comforting reassurance of Your love, I seek for Your light to guide my path. Help me to wipe away my tears and neutralize every evil plan against me and my family, answer all our prayers and grant us beautiful and successful end, for I know all is possible as I have placed my faith and trust in You, my saving God.
Good morning. Jumah Kareem and a wonderful weekend!
