…O my people, if you have believed in Allah, then in Him put your trust, if you indeed submit to His will – [Al-Yunus 10:85]
Man needs to be up and doing in his way and his human reasoning and man’s unsullied and pure nature need to urge him to do more of it with the help of God. He should be aware that trials will come his way but God will make it easy for him and come out victorious and triumphant from struggles of life.
One needs to make up his mind from tender age before attaining manhood and be bold to meet his trials and struggles and come over them. He will aftermath rejoice and be at peace. If he refuses to mend his ways during the period before manhood, defies the dictate of reason and concience, he is lost and the hope to find himself is narrow.
When become bold enough, affairs need to be left to Allah, He alone is Sufficient for you. So depend on Him by trusting His words and promises, by being pleased with His guidance and without doubt in Him. When you pray, feel free to say your prayers are accepted, they will only manifest at the appropriate time. Be a more potent believer by displaying the true characteristics of a believer; love your neighbours, be there for them, carry the best smiling face and approach them wisely and mannerly. Talk meekly and react lovingly. Pray for those that curse you, do good to those that hate you and are after you. You will be at peace when you incorporate these qualities into your character, your dependence is with Allah thus, He will care, help, protect and fight for you.
Lectures in this month of blessing have portrayed all these I’ve said above and you have been adopting the messages, try as much to cling fondly to the best path you have held unto. Allah alone is sufficient for us. He will always be there for us-aamin.
