Divine Wisdom: The passage,“… Be careful of your duty to Allah and seek means of nearness to Him and strive hard in His way that you may be successful.” Surah Al-Maaida – QN5:35, reminds us that, like three men talking about what success would be for them and one said it was being invited for a personal meeting with the president, to the second, it was meeting with the president, having the hot line ring and watching him ignore it, while to the third, it was meeting with the president, having the hot line ring and on picking it, he says, It’s for you’, many of us have a false concept of success.
So let the knowledge that:
1) When our intention is to do God’s will and honour Him, He promises success;
2) It is a mistake to associate all wealth with carnality and brand it as ‘worldly’; and
3) On Amazon.com, there are over twenty-five hundred books on how to be successful, but in reality, all we need is God’s Word!
Teach you as we step into the new year and prepare for the first working week, to plan ahead, make Renew your resolutions and heed God’s word, before trying to climb the ladder of success, to make sure it is leaning against the right wall – the wall of God’s words.
Pray with me: O Allah! As we step into this new year, I request for renewed faith followed by Your Grace and strength anew, that will make me victorious and successful in all my deeds. A fountain of divine abundance in 2023 and beyond I seek, by Your Grace. Amin Kunfayakun!
Good morning. Happy new week and Wishing you a happy and abundance filled New year!
