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:
It is easy to go through life looking in the rear view mirror, focused on what did not work out, on who hurt you, on the mistakes you have made. However, as long as you are living in regrets, focused on the negative things of the past, it is going to keep you from the bright future God has in store for you. You have to let go of what did not work out. Let go of the hurts and pains. Let go of things like that. You cannot do anything about the past but you can do something about right now. Imam Ali (peace be upon him) said, “You live between past and future. The past is the past and the future is not coming yet, so be careful about today.”
If you keep bringing negative baggage from yesterday into today, it will poison your future. You may have had an unfair past but do not let what somebody did or did not do for you, be an excuse to live sour. Do not let a bad break, a divorce, and a betrayal; cause you to settle where you are. Move forward and God will pay you back and vindicate you. You will come in to a new beginning. Do not weaken or grieve: you shall have the upper hand, should you be faithful. (Qur’an; 3:139)
If you stay focused on the past, you will get stuck where you are. This is the reason many people do not have joy, no enthusiasm for life. Life is too short to live that way. Learn to travel light. Every morning when you first get up, forgive the people that did you wrong the day before. Let them excuse and forbear. Do you not love that God should forgive you? God is all-forgiving, all-merciful. (Qur’an; 24:22)
Start every morning afresh and anew. God did not create you to carry around all that baggage. Imam Ali (peace be upon him) said, “Reduce the burden to reach the previous.”
