Divine Wisdom: The passage, “… whoever believes in Allah, He guides aright his heart…”QN64:11 reminds us that, Satan will attack us, lie and say he can separate us from God’s love and keep Him from blessing us, but just as all the water in the sea won’t drown us as long as it doesn’t get into the boat and because God’s will isn’t simply for us to survive, but to thrive, no matter how hard he tries, Satan’s efforts will always end in frustration, Ma Shaa Allah!
In other words, what we allow in hurts us, while that which we willingly walk away from, determines what God can entrust us with.
So let the knowledge that:
1) The reason many of us fail is that we trade what we want most for what we want now;
2) If we want the prize, we must be willing to pay the price; and
3) The greater the challenge, the greater the reward that awaits us beyond it;
Teach you, even as the year is closing to an end, to throw yourselves into the work of The Master of all masters, confident that nothing you do for Him is ever a waste of time, and all for your own good!
Pray with me: O Allah! Embellish me with the spirit of faith, that I may walk in Your directions as You lead me in achieving Your promises and purpose for my life. Your face I seek for me and my household, O Lord. Amin thunmo Amin!
Good morning. Jumah Kareem and have a great festive weekend!
