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:
The key is to meditate with Lord is to draw on God’s wisdom found in the Qur’an. In fact, Qur’an is filled with the blessings and benefits of meditating on its principles. Almighty God says, “Indeed we have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an so that you may apply reason.” (Qur’an; 12:2) Qur’an invites you to reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth and other creations, on your own souls and on the verses of the Qur’an: “Indeed in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of night and day, there are signs for those who possess intellects. Those who remember God standing, sitting, and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth and say, “Our Lord, You have not created this in vain! Immaculate are You! Save us from the punishment of the Fire.’” (Qur’an; 3: 190&191)
On the other hand, says, “We have sent down the reminder to you so that you may clarify for the people that which has been sent down to them, so that they may reflect.” (Qur’an; 16:44) Moreover, says, “Have they not reflected in their own souls? God did not create the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them except with reason and for a specified term.” (Qur’an; 30:8)
What are the benefits of meditation? Meditating on God’s Word will give you spiritual success. God’s definition of success in life is to know Him better. One way you do that is to read and understand His Word! Qur’an says about some Christians who get spiritual success after hearing the words of God: “Surely You will find the nearest people in affection to the faithful to be those who say, “We are Christians.” That is because there are priests and monks among them, and because they are not arrogant. When they hear what has been revealed to the Apostle, you see their eyes fill with tears because of the truth that they recognize. They say, “Our Lord, we believe; so write us down among the witnesses. Why should we not believe in God and the truth that has come to us, eager as we are that our Lord should admit us among the righteous people?” So, for what they said, God requited them with gardens with streams running in them, to remain in them forever, and that is the reward of the virtuous.” (Qur’an; 5:82)
