Reflecting Upon The Verses Of Qur’an

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuhu my dear brothers and sisters.

Firstly, I’d sicerely like to thank The Muslim Bricks for giving me this wonderful opportunity to share my thoughts and feelings to the world. Alhamdulillah.

Being born into a Muslim family, I didn’t find it that hard to practice Islam. Probably because my parents told me about Islam at a young age. Ofcourse, it was tough at first to adapt it but then it gradually became my way of life.

Reflecting back in the past, when I was as young as 11, I still remember how I used to behave as a kid. One of the things I used to do was to steal my salah (i.e. praying as fast as I can) SubhanAllah! I didn’t even know what I was uttering in my prayers as it was in Arabic. (But Alahamdulillah, I know it now.) Most importantly, I didn’t know the purpose of life.

Being raised in a western society, I found it a big deal to stick to our cultural norms. Then, I was used to it and that’s when I knew the reason behind everything that our religion commands. While most people believe that Islam is a complicated religion, I’d like to tell them that it is people who are making it complicated. Because Islam is perfect and the Muslims aren’t. They really need to understand that Islam is not a set of rules and regulations. But indeed, it is a way of life and the Qur’an is our guide. It clearly shows us what is good and bad. Therefore, we have to act accordingly. Our Creator created us and the whole universe, so He Allah  knows best.

Allah says in the Qur’an in Surah An-Nur [24:30], “Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and protect their private parts. This is more purer for them. Indeed Allah is Well-Aware of what they do.” This particular verse from the Qur’an tells us to lower our gaze and this goes for both men and women.

We live in a society where people get into haram relationships quite easily. Why, even the 13-year-olds fall into the trap of Shaytan. The reason, thereof is neither of them lowered their gaze. Wallahi, the eyes, only the eyes, once they meet each other and that for more than once, the  Shaytan gets into both of them. They have to be aware that it is Shaytan who brings up feelings in both their hearts. And he Shaytan plays with them and at last he wins and they will be among the losers. Didn’t Allah  mention in the Qur’an in Surah An-Naba [78:8] “And we created you in pairs”. So, just wait patiently for the one who is destined for you. Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters please lower your gaze for Allah . Surely, there is a reward for every good thing that you do.

I would like to share an incident that happened to me a year back. It was the day that my grandpa arrived from his business trip. He was tired so he wanted to take a nap. So he was getting his clothes from his suitcase and was about to change. Suddenly, he realized that his expensive ring went missing. So he called the hotel where he stayed in and informed that his ring went missing and that he might have left it in the hotel room. But the reply was negative. Then he begun to search everywhere in the house. My grandma was bummed at this. So the whole family started finding it. I prayed to Allah  that he didn’t left it in the hotel room and that it should be somewhere at home. I recited salawats and was hoping to find it soon. Then when I opened one of the wardrobes, the sparkling ring was there. SubhanAllah! My grandpa then realized that he kept it there, forgetfully. I couldn’t thank Allah  more. That feeling is just unforgettable. This increased my faith and hence made me closer to Allah . I am feeling grateful of it.

This reminds me of one of the verses in the Qur’an in Surah Ad-Duha [93:7], “And He found you lost and guided [you].” SubhanAllah, it perfectly fits into what just happened. Insha’Allah, I hope I will stick onto the straight path forever.

As Ramadan’s round the corner, let us all pray for each other’s well-being and indulge in religious activities. May Allah  protect you and I from the torment of the grave and the hereafter. Ameen.

Hope it inspired you!
JazakAllah Khair.
