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:
As the Qur’an says, In the Apostle of God there is certainly for you a good exemplar, (Qur’an; 33:21) and you should try your best to be like him. You should know his manner, behavior and his correctors and follow them. This is the way of salvation.
One of the characters of the Prophet was His love for all people. He was a mercy for all creatures. Almighty God says, “We did not send you but as a mercy to all the nations.” (Qur’an; 21:107) Moreover, says, “There has certainly come to you an apostle from among yourselves. Grievous to him is your distress; he is full of concern for you and most kind and merciful to the faithful.” (Qur’an; 9:128)
Holy Prophet was so concern - not just for believers and his companions, but also for non-believers - that Almighty God told him: “Perhaps you will torment yourself in grief over them, because they will not believe in this saying at all.” (Qur’an; 18:6) Polytheists persecuted him and beat him with stones, but the Prophet prayed for them and said, “O My Lord, forgive my people; they do not know.”
It is easy to love people that are just like us; People that look like us, dress like us, worship like us. That does not take a lot of effort, but what about people that are different from us? People that we do not understand, we do not agree with. It is easy to size them up from the exterior, put them in a box, and think, “they are not for me. They are odd. I am going to keep distance.” However, holy prophet’s love is not exclusive; it is inclusive. He loves not just faithful but is kind to non-believers too. Of course, He has a special love and mercy to believers. “Muhammad, the Apostle of God, and those who are with him are hard against the faithless and merciful amongst themselves.” (Qur’an; 48:29)
