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:
You may have many problems in your life and face some disasters, some afflictions but you should know that it is only a test of your faith and you should stay for the joy. Know that as Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him and his pure progeny) said, “This world is the prison of the believer and the paradise of the unbeliever.” you have to pass this test. Count it all joy when you fall into various trials. Know that God wants something better for you. God loves you and verily when God, the Mighty, the Great, loves a servant, He immerses him in tribulation thorough immersing.
Keep your peace; control yourself and start passing this test. Know that God wants to refine you and purify you. Know that as Imam Sadiq (as) said, “The believer is like the scale of a balance; the more his faith increases, the more his trouble increases.” He said, “A believer does not pass forty nights without something sorrowful happening to him, which reminds his Lord to him”, and said, “Worries and grieves always remain with a believer until they wipe out his sins.”
Imam Baqir (alaihes salaam) said, “Verily God takes care of a believer through trials as a man takes care of his family through gifts during (his) absence; and denies to him the world as a physician denies harmful food to a patient.” And The Messenger of God (peace be upon him and his pure progeny) said, If a believer were to live on a mountain, God, the Mighty, the Great, would surely send someone to him to annoy him, in order that He should give him [the believer] its reward.” Bible said, “God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”
You can grow up. Almighty God tries to teach you to not rely on what everybody saying but instead to just do your best on to him. Stop looking at your problems and start looking at your God. Know that true joy is found only in God, when you take off your eyes of how you feel and your circumstances and place them on God and His word.
