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:
It is one thing to make a big splash and let everybody know how generous you are. However, if you really want to be blessed, do something good for somebody and do not tell anybody about it. Leave some cash in an unmarked envelope on the desk of that coworker that is struggling to make ends meet. At the restaurant, buy somebody’s dinner and remain anonymous. Clean up the kitchen at the office and do not tell anybody that you did it. When you do things in secret and you do not get any credit, you are sowing a seed for Almighty God to do great things in your life and He will make it grow. Qur’an says, “Have you considered what you sow? Is it you who make it grow, or are We the grower?” (Qur’an; 56: 63&64)
Why do not you make a decision that you are going to start being good to people? Remember, true love is always backed up with your actions. People are watching you, and one of the best witnesses you could have is simply by being good to people. If you will get up every day and focus on how you can be a blessing and not just on how you can get blessed, God will meet your own needs as you meet others’ needs. God will meet all your needs in abundance! Who is for God, God will be for him.
Qur’an says that people are not going to know true Muslims by how many verses they quote. They are not going to know them by how many Muslim stickers they have on their rooms or cars. They will know true Muslims and the faithful by their behaviors. The faithful are only those who have attained faith in God and His Apostle and then have never doubted, and who strive with their possessions and their persons in the way of God. It is they who are the truthful. (Qur’an; 49: 15) In another verse, Qur’an says, “The faithful are only those who maintain the prayer and spend out of what We have provided them. It is they who are truly the faithful. They shall have ranks near their Lord, forgiveness and a noble provision.” (Qur’an; 2: 3&4)
People are going to really know that you are believers when you are helping other people, meeting their needs, doing good works and when you are blessing people with your words and your actions. Imam Sadiq (peace be upon him) said, “Know that who has not good behavior with others, he is not from us. He is not a real Muslim.” He said, “They know you that you are with us so you should be adornment and beauty of us and do not cause of our embarrassment.”
