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:
Think about Moses (peace be upon him). As a young man, he had a desire to deliver the people of Israel but he got out of God’s timing and he killed a man. He had to run for his life. He spent years on the backside of the desert, looked like he was buried, looked like his dreams would never come to pass. The truth is he was not buried, he was simply planted. He was coming back. Those dreams were still alive. Through all those years out there in the wilderness, he did not get bitter; he did not get discouraged. He still knew that God was in control. One day, when he was 80 years old, God came and said, “Moses, it is time for your comeback. It is time for you to blossom. I have an assignment for you. Go to pharaoh, he has become exceedingly insolent. Then say, “Have you (a desire) to purify yourself? I will guide you to your lord so that you should fear.’” (Qur’an; 79: 17-19)
Do you know the latter part of Moses’s life was much greater than the first part? Some of you may feel like Moses, as you have made too many mistakes. Listen! God wants the rest of your life to be the most fulfilling, the most rewarding. Those dreams that you once had, they did not die. They are still alive on the inside. You may have made poor choices but it did not bury you. It planted you. That means God has already arranged your comeback.
Now you have to do your part and get your fire back. Quit living condemned; quit listening to the accuser, reminding you of everything you have done wrong. God knows every mistake that you have ever made. The moment you ask Him for forgiveness, He forgives you. God declares, “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)
The good news is, He did not cancel your destiny. He did not give away your assignment. You need to dig those heels in and say, “That is it. I am not living condemned anymore. If God gave Moses another chance, He will give me another chance. This is a new day. I am putting on a new attitude. I know I have not been buried. I have been planted.”
Friend, you have comeback power in your DNA. You have been created to overcome every obstacle, to rise above every challenge. I want you to have the confidence that no matter what comes against you, it cannot defeat you. As long as you are letting God arise, your enemies will be scattered. That same dirt that is trying to bury you can be the dirt God is going to use to promote you. Learn to shake it off and step up. Remember in the tough times that loss, that disappointment, that injustice is not the end. It is a new beginning. Pull your shoulders back; hold your head up high. Dare to declare, “I am coming back and I am coming back better.” If you do that, those difficulties are going to give way to new growth, new potential, new talent, new friendships, new opportunities and new vision. You are going to see God blossom your life in ways you had never even dream of. Be careful of (your duty to) your lord; for those who do good in this world there is good and the earth of God is wide. Surely, those who are patient will be recompensed in full without count. (Qur’an; 39:10)
