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:
When you are in those dark times and you feel like you are being buried, maybe you had been through some kind of loss; you do not see anything bright in the future, and feel like people are walking on top of you. Remember that there is a process-taking place. Like that little seed, new growth is springing forth, new talent, new determination, new opportunities, new friendships; God is birthing something in you, greater than what you are right now. You have to keep reminding yourself, “God is still on the throne, this is not the end, it is only the beginning. I have got comeback power in my DNA.”
Understand that the only difference between being buried and being planted is what you expect. If you expect that difficulty to be end of you and you give up on your dreams, even though you are a seed with the life of Almighty God, even though God has already planned your comeback, because of your own thinking it is not going to happen. Be like those who have gone through incredible challenges but right in the middle, they have a smile on their face. They are hoping, believing, expecting. Do you know what they say? They say, “God, we know we are not buried. We are planted and we are eager to see what You are going to do next. We cannot wait to see the new doors that are going to open, the new friends we are going to make, and the new opportunities we are going to encounter. We know that God is sufficient for us, and He is an excellent trustee.” (Qur’an; 3:173) If you stay in faith like that, your difficulties will lead you to a new fullness. You will see God blossom your life in ways you had never imagine.
When you are in tough times and everything that could go wrong does, you have to dig your heels in and say “This attack was meant to destroy me but I have got inside information that it cannot bury me. It is only planting me.” You should wait for God’s promises as a farmer waits for his harvest. I have never seen a farmer plant a crop, and then worry night and day if it is going to come up. He does not lose sleep at night and say, “Please pray that my corn take root, I am so worried.” No. He waits with a knowing and a confidence. In fact, he does not necessarily hope that it happens; he does not even have to believe that it will happen; He takes it one-step further - he knows that his harvest is on its way. He has seen it happen repeatedly. He has planted, he has watered, and he has fertilized; now he waits with a knowing. He knows that the real sower who causes it to grow is God. Almighty God says, “Have you considered what you sow? Is it you that cause it to grow, or are We the causers of growth? If We will, We would make it broken stubble and you would remain wondering, “surely We are burdened with debt“.” (Qur’an; 56: 63-66)
Well, you have stood on God’s promises. You have prayed, you have believed, you have watered your seed with your praises, now it is time to come over into this knowing. It is time to come into this unshakeable confidence. God says, “As for those who strive in Us, We shall surely guide them in Our ways, and God is indeed with the virtuous.” (Qur’an; 29:69)
