Divine Wisdom: The passage, “In the bounty of Allah and in His mercy: therein let them rejoice.” Surah Yunus – QN10:58, reminds Muslims, who are so serious and solemn that they lead others to believe God cringes at laughter and hates anything that smacks of joy and delight that, Allah talks about the different roles of The Holy Quran in Surah Yunus – QN10:57 “It is an admonition, a cure, a guidance and a mercy. That is by His grace and mercy.” Then the next verse makes an important point – “believers should rejoice in it, it is better than what they have gathered.” Vs 58. Thereby, making The Quran one of the most joy-filled books ever written. Allah Akbar!
In other words, trying to find happiness and joy in materialism is like drinking saltwater with the hope of being refreshed.
So let the knowledge that:
1) Joy is the serious business of heaven;
2) Rather than being an emotion or a commodity to be bought or sold, it is an attitude; and
3)The secret to lasting joy lies in realising that we are unconditionally loved, valued, and accepted by our God;
Teach you, that, by living a life truly devoted to Allah, inshallah we can all find the happiness we deserve; so if indeed you desire true happiness, to get up close and personal with His Word!
Pray with me: O Allah! Help me study Your words, teach me to have a better understanding of Your words, grant me the grace to lead a pious life that confirms with Your words, and shower me with everlasting Joy here and in the hereafter, by Your mercy. Amin!
Good morning. Jumah Mubarak and a Joy-filled weekend ahead!
