Divine Wisdom: The passage, “Help one another in acts of piety and righteousness… And be aware of Allah” QN5:2, reminds those of us who tend to think we are the only ones struggling with something too difficult to talk about that, most of the people we meet every day are equally hiding something, as a result of which their anger is often a symptom of their hurt and, because some wounds are too personal to talk about, they would rather keep to themselves and transfer the aggression.
In other words, their seeming aloofness is just their way of hiding their fear of being known for who they really are and perhaps, be rejected.
So let the knowledge that:
1) More often than we may ever know, those around us are going through things they would rather we didn’t know about;
2) Deep down within, they are crying tears we don’t see and feeling isolated in ways we cannot even begin to imagine; and
3) When we make the necessary effort to help lift their spirit with words of wisdom and encouragement filled with much love and desired support, God will work in our own lives too;
Teach you, rather than add to the hurt and burden of another, to simply do the least you can to ease it and pray hard enough for sustaining grace! TGIF
Pray with me: O Allah! Grant me the peace of mind and strength to do things Your way and be a source of inspiration and encouragement to others. Make me shine in a way that Your Divine Power May be seen through me.
Good morning. Jumah Mubarak and a Splendid weekend ahead!
