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:
There is in traditions that there was a Jewish who annoyed the prophet. Every day she saved all the garbage in a basket, placed it on the roof of her house and threw all the garbage on Prophet, when he passed by. Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him and his pure progeny) did not say anything and continued on his way. One day, the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his pure progeny) did not find the woman to be on the roof with the basket. This worried him; he asked about her and they said she is sick. Holy Prophet with some of his companions visited her. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his pure progeny) entered the house and visited her. This made her feel very guilty for being so cruel to him in the past and she apologized for her mean behavior and converted to Islam.
These are the kindness and mercy of the Prophet. After the conquest of Mecca He forgave all his enemies; they tortured him for years but magnanimous Prophet forgave all of them. He told them: “I say to you what my brother Joseph said to his brothers: There shall be no reproach on you today. God will forgive you, and He is the most merciful of the merciful.” (Qur’an; 12:92)
This is the Prophet, but what about us? How do we behave with others? How do we behave with believers, with Muslims, with our brothers and sisters? The Prophet (peace be upon him and his pure progeny) said, “The believers, in their mutual love, compassion and mercy, are like one body; if one part of it is suffering, the rest of the parts of the body join it in its fever and sleeplessness.” Moreover, Imam Ali (peace be upon him) said, “Let your mercy and compassion come to your people, all of them because there are two kinds of people: those who have the same religion as you have; they are brothers to you, and those who have religions other than that of yours, but they are human beings like you.” Then said, “Let them pardon and forgive as you like God to forgive you.” Qur’an says, “Let them pardon and forgive. Would you not like God to forgive you? And God is Forgiving, Merciful.” (Qur’an; 24:22)
You should be kind to people as your prophet did, and as your Lord, Almighty God does. You are the successor of Almighty God and should try your best to be like your Lord. He has made mercy incumbent upon Himself. (Qur’an; 6:12) Indeed God is most kind and merciful to mankind. (Qur’an; 2:143) So be kind to them. Of course God has a special mercy that is for believers and virtuous. He says, “My mercy embraces all things. Soon I shall appoint it for those who are God wary and give the zakat and those who believe in Our signs.” (Qur’an; 7:156)
