The Quran serves as a guide11 and reminder from Allah SWT to us humans, His servants on His orders, the akhirat, a cure for ailments12, as ruqyah(remedy,treatment) and for a peace of mind13.
The benefits of The Quran shall be gained when it is read, with comprehension and our actions that follow. Just by reading, we do feel a sense of serenity and settlement. When we understand the stories told in the Quran and the lessons that are there to preach us and guide us rightfully it provides a satisfaction, confidence, good manners, patience, love, forgiveness and strengthens our faith. To truly, loyally follow the orders in of Allah SWT, we will tend to be humble. We will not be bounded to materialistic items. Even if we made a fortune, we wouldn't be spending lavishly, wasting absurdly without thinking of the less fortunate neighbors or relatives. It teaches us to be, what a humane human being, should be.
When we read the Quran with sincerity, illnesses are cured, sickness will be wiped out, the heart will regain calmness and stability. All calamities are, calamities. Yes, we go through tragedy and sorrow in our lives, but so do many other people out there, some had had gone through far more worse conditions that us, have you ever thought about that? Learn to say الحمد لله
Be thankful for the air you breathe, for your mobility, for your eye sight, for the food you can eat, for the water you can drink, it's simple, don't make life complicated, it's never is, only when we make it so.
If you feel distressed or empty, go and recite a surah, you will, InsyaAllah feel much better.
I did wrote an article on patience, click here to read patience and it's benefits...>
Anyway, I will still write about it here, as it is part of the Tib An Nabawi content.
With patience, neither hardship will ever be too hard nor sorrow will be mournful.
No matter what happens in life, with patience and belief, we will be able to live on with life with no regrets, no grudges, and no bad feelings. What we should do is be patient ourselves and try to encourage14 others too.
As a Muslim, patience is a part of us. Patience can be divide into 3 parts:-
- Patience in obeying the orders/commands given to us.
- Patience in retaining ourselves from what is forbidden.
- Patience in times of fitnah, and appointed destiny/decisions made by Allah SWT. (facing challenges)
By being impatience, your body will be prone to infections, easily irritated, you'll lose your self to anger, your capacity is limited and illnesses easily consumes you. So, I advice you to take a safer step, choose patience first when dealing in a rough situation, for it will help you to stay sensible and think wisely.
Okay, this is the end of Tib An Nabawi, thank you for reading, your presence here is most appreciated.
