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:
You may have dreams that you believe for, and situations you want to see turn around; but too often you may put Almighty God in a box and tell him how to do it, when to do it and who to use to do it. The only problem is that God’s ways are not your ways. God does not always do things the logical way. God uses unorthodox methods. He is unconventional.
You have to stay open. Let God out of your box. You may only see one way that it could happen. It may be just one obvious door. However, God closed that door on purpose because He has something much better in front of you. Just because it is the logical way, does not mean that it is God’s way. Just because it happened that way before, does not mean it is going to happen that way next time. Some times what you want or the way you want is not good for you. Perhaps you may hate something while it is good for you, and perhaps you may love something while it is bad for you; God knows while you do not know. (Qur’an; 2:216)
If you are narrow minded you may miss God’s best. Your attitude should be: “God I am letting you out of my box. You can do anything in my life. My lord, I trust you to do it your way.” know that whoever puts his trust in God, He will suffice him. Indeed God carries through His command. (Qur’an; 65:3) Trust Almighty God and be interested in pleasing God than you are pleasing people. There will always be people that try to squeeze you into their mold and tell: “you are not enough of this, or not enough of that.” Let it go in one ear and out the other. You are not who people say you are. You are who God says you are. Say, “God!” Then leave them to play around in their impious gossip. (Qur’an; 6:91)
