Divine Wisdom: The passage, “If you believe and work with piety, We would open to you the gates of all heavenly and earthly blessings” Al-A’raaf – QN7:96, reminds us that, in much the same way that the Pht Muhammed (s.a.w) saw preaching and healing as ‘work’ given to Him to be done by Allah when we go about doing the things which the Lord Almighty has designed and called us to do, the world will be a much better place.
In other words, the key to experiencing new levels of fulfilment is to see what we do for a living as His will for our lives.
So let the knowledge that:
1) All skill is God-given;
2) Living in conscious interaction with the Spirit of God as we work, helps develop those innate skills which He has pre-disposed in us; and
3) To be fully human, is to continuously create and add value to the lives of those around us;
Teach you, whatever the Almighty has laid upon your heart to do this year, to set about doing it to the Glory of His Name!
Pray with me: O Allah! Forgive us our sins, blot out from us our iniquities, Pour down on us constancy in all our affairs and cause that we may feel Your hand in our lives, as we go forth impacting others by Your Grace. Amin!
Good morning and have a pleasant week!
