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 massages 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:
We are in a society where mediocrity is the norm. Many people do not take pride in their work and pride in who they are. If somebody is watching, they will perform one way but when nobody is watching, they will cut corners and take the easy way out. If you are not careful, you will get pulled into this same mentality, thinking that it is okay to for example show up late to work, not look your best and not give it your all. However, the fact is that God does not bless mediocrity. God blesses excellence. Excellent spirit does the right thing whether anyone is watching or not; goes the extra mile; does more than he has to. Other people may complain; they may go out looking sloppy, cutting corners, but excellent spirit does not sink down to that level.
Know that you are not everybody. You are a cut above. You are called to be excellent. Almighty God wants you to set the highest standard. You should be the example your company uses as the model employee. Do not be dissuaded by others. Be careful. Be patient, for God’s promise is true, and do not be dissuaded by those who do not have certainty. (Qur’an; 30:60)
When you have an excellent spirit like that, you are not only going to see promotion but you are honoring Almighty God. It is piety, piousness, revering the Lord; it is “Taqwa“. God wants us to be pious, to be virtue. He says, “O you who believe, revere God (and be wary of God) as He deserves to be revered.” (Qur’an; 3:102)
It is honors God to go to work on time, to go out looking your best. When you are excellent, your life is giving praise to God. Anyone who reverences God, He makes everything easy for him. This is God’s command that He sends down to you. Anyone who reverences God, He remits his sins, and rewards him generously. (Qur’an; 65: 4&5) God does not reword sloppiness. God rewords excellence. When you do more than what required of you, you will see God’s goodness in a new way.
