How do you see Allah’s law? Too rigid? Impossible to practise? Hindrance to your dreams? You feel like an outcast? Oh beloved creation of Allah, know, His laws are not too rigid, know, it’s not impossible to practise. Know, it can’t keep you from skyrocketing to the top.
Permit me to wipe your lenses through which you view it. Permit me to show you the perfect picture Allah has created for you.
Allah says “and He will provide for him from where he doesn’t expect and whoever relies upon Allah, then He is sufficient for him. Indeed Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a decree.” [Surah At-Talaaq Q65: 2]
Oh beloved creation of Allah do you see Allah’s promise? Whoever has full trust in Him will not be forsaken. Trust is obeying His laws and believing in the great reward He has prepared for us. Allah says “And will reward them for what they patiently endured with a Garden (in paradise) and silk garments. They will be reclining therein on adorned couches. They will not see therein any (burning) sun or (freezing) cold. And there will be circulated among them vessels of silver and cups having been (created) clear (as glass).” [Surah Al-Insaan Q76: 12 – 15)
What a delight to be among these people whom Allah has described; we have to work to earn this. So dear beloved creation of Allah, be the kind of Muslim who strives to please your Rabb. Be the type of Muslim that tries not to compromise for surely that is not extremism but sticking to the fundamentals because you know He got your back.
For instance, Allah has made rules on hijab, do not see it as rules that draw you back. See yourself has a walking verse that exemplifies the hijab. Imagine that He loves you so much and only wants to protect you. It does not stop you from being richer than Bill Gate for Allah has written everything beautifully. So, know that whatever laws made by Allah can never be reasons for you to fail. His laws cannot be detrimental to your success. You should also remember the main purpose of your creation. “And I have not created jinn and man except to worship Me (Alone).” [Surah Adh-Dhaariyyat Q51:56].
So, why throw away the afterlife for this short life? We may live on this earth for 150 years but we could spend centuries in the grave waiting for judgment day. So, it is how your days were spent that determines how splendid your afterlife will be.
Oh beloved creation of Allah the more you submit to His Will, the more tranquility you will find in your heart. “Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest" [Surah Ar-Ra’d Q13:28]. Let us strive in order to meet and hold ourselves together in Allah’s Abode in Jannah in shaa’a Allah
