Allah, the Most High, says:
“He is Most Forgiving, Most Appreciative.”
[Surat Fatir: 30]
A Reflection: For every step you walk towards Him, every word that you say to please Him, and every good intention that you conceal within your chest, He will show appreciation to you for that…and there is nothing else like His appreciation.
Sometimes consciously going back to our Creator requires a little push, because it’s not always easy. After all, insaan by our very nature, are very forgetful, and what better way to guide us home than to teach us a few things about ourselves along the way?
Alhamdulillah for the trials that bring with them Mercy & Guidance.
Alhamdulillah for everything that guides us back to Allah.
So ask yourself— when Allah removes you from a certain bad situation or a person that has been impacting your life negatively, isn’t the greatest form of ingratitude returning back to that same person, and putting yourself back into that same situation?
When you realize that Allah wishes well on you, every decision decreed by Allah becomes an unquestionable blessing. #Alhumdulillah
Sacrifice and be recompensed
Sacrifice is to give up something which is prohibited or doubtful. The one who does so, Allah will recompense him with something good: ❝You will never give something up for the sake of (pleasing) Allah, except that Allah will recompense you for it with something better for you than it.❞ (Ahmad)
Alhamdulillah during my pain, during my happiness, during my anger, and my silence. Alhamdulillah no matter what the conditions are..
“If you do not argue back even when you are in the right, Allah ‘azza wa jalla will reply on your behalf… at a time and place He knows best. And His reply will always be much more befitting and hard hitting than any self-defence you could muster for your own self.”
