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:
Almighty God freely gave you mercy; let us freely give other people mercy. Holy Prophet said, “He who is not merciful to people, God will not be merciful to him.” It means he will not receive the special mercy of God. Moreover, he said, “A person does not enter Paradise unless he be compassionate towards all people not just his family.” On the other hand, said, “Have mercy to those on earth, so who is in heaven gives you mercy.”
It is easy to cover people with judgment, covering them with condemnation, cover with guilt, but let us start covering people with love. Create in your mind and heart kindness, compassion and love for people and your subjects. Do not behave towards them as if you are a voracious and ravenous beast and as if your success lies in devouring them. Because amongst your subjects 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, they are human beings like you. Cover people with love; love heals. Love brings down barriers. Love puts people back on their feet. You may not understand someone but that is okay. Have a wide circle of love. Remember, they are on a journey. Where they are is not where they are going to end up. God is counting on them to make a difference, to push them forward and show them mercy. If you will have this unconditional love, not only will you help others, but also your own life will improve. You will have more joy and better relationships.
Ask Almighty God and say, “O, God help us to have mercy on others and not judge people by the exterior, by what they wear, by the mistakes they have made. God let us see people through eyes of love. O, God help us to love and follow Prophet Mohammad and His progeny (peace be upon them) and to be merciful to all creatures.
