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:
A friend said, a man approached me; he was in his early fiftieth, and he was sobbing. His parents had done something that had offended him, and for several years, he would not have anything to do with them. He was holding on to bitterness and resentment. He knew he should let it go, forgive them, and overlook their faults, but he would not do it. He was hard-headed and his attitude was, “One day, I will make things right. But right now, I am going to show them.” Unfortunately, one day never came. His father had a massive stroke and instantly he was gone. The son was living with guilt and shame. If he had to do it again, he would not have put off making things right with his parents.
When, people do you wrong, God expects you to let the offenses go. Life is too short to hold a grudge. Stop putting off forgiving the people that have done you wrong. Imam Ali (a.s.) said, “Opportunity passes over like the clouds so do not miss good opportunities.”
Stop putting off spending time with the people that you love. So often, you take people for granted. “I am going to go see my parents when my kids get through with their baseball season, or when I get a little bit more money.” However, if you wait for all the conditions to be just right, you will never get off dead center. There will never be a perfect time to do what God has put in your heart. You have to make a decision that you are going to do it now.
Do not miss opportunities to be good to people. For instance, maybe God is prompting you to give somebody some money. Do not overanalyze it. “Well, God, I think I need the money more than they do. Is this really you, God? I better pray about this for a couple of weeks.” No, that is an excuse for not doing what you know God is telling you to do.
