Hawzah News Agency (Qom, Iran) – The Qur’an is the very word of God; a complete record of the exact words revealed by Almighty God through the Archangel Gabriel to His Last Messenger. This holy book is not just a torch of guidance for afterlife, and if you look at it close enough, you would find important messages for living in this life as well.
Here we are going to present some informative Articles about how you can relate on the verses of Qur’an in real life which potentially would lead to solving your personal and social problems and having a very spiritual and beautiful life by accepting God’s commands:
Listen, talk is cheap. You can say, “God I promise I will be good to people. I will give to the people. I will give to the homeless. I will support my mosque.” No, God says, “will you give that 1000, I am asking you to give now? Will you buy that person's dinner? Will you do that now?”
Pass these small tests. Obey the “I knows” on the inside, quickly. God speaks to you about everyday practical things. You are going to pay attention to what feeling down in here. You have to make the first move. God does not force you to do this; he has given you your own free will. He says, “Indeed We have guided him to the way, be he grateful or ungrateful.” (Qur’an; 76:3) And says, “There is no compulsion in religion; rectitude has become distinct from error.” (Qur’an; 2:256)
So choose the best way and obey quickly. Know that whenever God asks you to give something up he is never trying to take something away. He is trying to get something better to you. As you grow, develop, and mature, the more of his blessings and favor will be released.
Do not say, “I want to do something more important.” No, unless you obey in the small, God cannot entrust you with much. Everybody is not going to sensitive to God’s voice and have the discipline and determination to become all they were created to be. Do not confuse small with insignificant. It may be a small thing, but without passing the small tests, you will not step into the fullness of your destiny.
Be careful that something small does not hold you back. You know you need to do it but you do not feel like it. You keep putting it off, thinking “ah it is no big deal.” No, it is a big deal. Start passing the small tests. Every time you obey, a blessing will follow. Here the real test. Will you be your best right where you are even though you are doing something that you know is beneath you? It may be difficult but God will never ask you to do something and then not give you the power to do it. Whatever tests you are facing, you have the grace to pass it. God does not task any soul beyond its capacity. (Qur’an; 2:286)
Do not make excuses. Excuses can keep you from your destiny. It was the act of obedience that released the fullness of God’s power. Obey God and obey the Apostle, and do not render your works void. (Qur’an; 47:33)
