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 should focused on what you can change; not what you cannot change. What is done is done. If you lost your temper yesterday you can either beat yourself up, carry around the guilt and condemnation, or you can ask for forgiveness, receive God’s mercy and better today. You may have had some bad breaks but that did not stop God’s plan for your life. He still has something amazing in front of you. There is always an opportunity to catch up. He almighty says, “O My servants who have committed excesses against their own souls, do not despair of the mercy of God. Indeed God will forgive all sins. Indeed He is the All-forgiving, the All-merciful.” (Qur’an; 39:53)
When one door closes, if you will stay in faith, God will always open up another door. One of the attributes of God is Jabbār (Redeeming - compensating for faults or defects). He is Almighty God there is no other God except Him the Sovereign, the All-holy, the All-benign, the Securer, the All-conserver, the All-mighty, the All-compeller, the All-magnanimous. Clear is God of any partners that they may ascribe to Him! (Qur’an; 59:23) Everything that happens in this world is on schedule. It is the plan of Almighty God. With Him are the treasures of the Unseen; no one knows them except Him. He knows whatever there is in land and sea. No leaf falls without His knowing, nor is there a grain in the darkness of the earth, nor anything fresh or withered but it is in a manifest Book. (Qur’an; 6:59)
Your life is not over because you lost. God has another victory in front of you. Quit thinking about your lost. God will compensate your faults or defects. When negative pictures come up on the move screen of your mind, change the channel. You have the remote control. You do not have to watch everything comes up. Every time you think about it, you are re-opening it. The mind is very powerful. If you replay negative experiences, you will feel the same emotion as when it first happened.
Think about useful experiences. Think about things that are pure, about the signs of God, about the creation of the heavens and the earth not about negative experiences. Qur’an says, “Have they not reflected in their own souls? God did not create the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them except with reason and for a specified term.” (Qur’an; 30:8)
The negative memories will try to replay repeatedly. You cannot change the past but you can change the future. As many people could do that. People like Hur in the day of Ashura, Fozeil Ayaz, and Gondi. So do not be disappointed like those whom Qur’an says about them: “And should any ill befall man, he becomes hopeless, despondent.” (Qur’an; 41:49)
