Hawzah News Agency (Qom, Iran) – The Quran 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:
When God speaks to your heart about changing your attitude, or apologizing to that loved one, or treating somebody better, yet you keep putting it off, that will destroy your joy and keep you from God’s best. Rather than being a procrastinator, be a now person. Start doing what God has put in your heart right now. Do not merely intend to be obedient, but promptly obey. Imam Ali (as) said, “Remedy what is left of your age, and do not say I will do it tomorrow or the day after tomorrow; for those who were before you perished of their stay on the aspirations and procrastination until the command of God came to them suddenly and they were heedless.”
Maybe you go to bed with a guilty conscience because you are putting off what you know you should be doing. Procrastination makes you feel badly about yourself; it condemns you. You walk in the house, and see that dirty laundry room that you have been meaning to clean for two months, you have a sink full of dishes, or your garage is a mess. You think, “What is wrong with me? I am never going to get this place cleaned up. I am so lazy. I might as well go in and sit down and watch some more TV.” That is a negative cycle, and it will continue unless you put your foot down and say, “I am going to get my house in order. I am going to make some changes today. No more procrastinating for me.” Be like those who are zealous in performing good works, rush in the goodness, and take the lead in them. (Quran; 23:61)
Perhaps Almighty God has been dealing with you about getting out of debt, about controlling you’re spending, and not being so quick to use those credit cards. You say, “Yes, one day, I will get my spending in order, but let me run to the mall one more time.” On the other hand, I can hear you say, “Oh, you hit the nail on the head. I have to do something with my finances. I know I need to balance my checkbook. So, in the next month or two, I am going to sit down and do it.” No, do not put that off. The longer you put things off the harder they are to do. Do it now. Be a true believer. Be among the righteous. They have faith in God and the Last Day, bid what is right, forbid what is wrong, and are active in performing good deeds; they hasten in goodness. They are among the righteous. (Quran; 3:114)
Are you putting off living a healthier life? Maybe you know you need to get on an exercise program and get in shape. You may be thinking, “That is right, that is me; and sure enough, I am going to do it. I know I eat too much junk food. I drink too many sodas. Yes, I am going to make changes, but some other time. I am going to start this summer as soon as the kids get out of school.” No, that is delayed obedience. That is not God’s best. Start today; do it now! Respond to the Almighty God immediately so He will answer your prayer.
