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:
Most of the time you believe that Almighty God loves you as long as you make good decisions, resisting temptation, treating people right. You know that God loves you. You know he is on your side. However, the problem with this kind of reasoning is we all make mistakes. Indeed human is most unfair and senseless. (Qur’an; 33:72) No matter how good of a person you are, there will be times that you do not perform perfectly, times that you have doubts, times that you fail. You know you should bite your tongue but you told them off anyway. You said it would be the last time but you gave into compromise once again.
When you do not perform perfectly it is easy to think that God is far from you; that God would never have anything to do with you. However, the truth is when you fall; God does not turn away from you. He comes running toward you. When you blew it, God does not say, too bad. You had your chance. He comes after you with passion.
Maybe you can say that when you make a mistake God does not love the same but He may love you a little more! He will turns up the intensity. He will send people across your path to encourage you, to help reignite your faith. Maybe you are walking through the neighborhood, you hear the azan from mosque and you feel a warmness on the inside.
That is the mercy of God coming after you, saying: “O MY servants who have committed excesses against their own souls, do not despair of the mercy of God. Indeed God will forgive all sins. Indeed, He is the All-forgiving, the All-merciful. (Qur’an; 39:53) You may have blown it but you are still My servant. You may have let Me down but I am not going to let you down. You may have lost faith in Me but I have not lost faith in you.”
