Yes, I know it’s been a while 🙂 Alhamdulillah I’m back to posting, no?
So, this is going to be a quick post because I need to go cram-I-mean-study inshaAllah.
But I just wanted to quickly put up this. We just did the divorce ayaat in AlHuda, at the end of Surah Baqarah, Juz 2. SubhanAllah, when you analyze them, you realize there is so much hikmah in them, and that for such a hard, painful thing, Allah swt is trying to make it easy on us. But in real life, what do we do? We ignore the advice of Allah, do our own thing, get hurt, and then wonder why.
Divorce is just one example but that relates to so many things. If we just simply followed the hikmah of Allah’s commands, I think we’d be living a more chillin’ and less hurtin’ life, no? Of course tests will come, and things get hard, but Allah swt, out of His mercy, has given us the tool (*Qur’an*) to get through them and pass with flying colours. We just have to utilize them.
I absolutely love how in the middle of the verses, Allah swt says in verse 238: “Guard your salah, especially the middle salah, and stand up with true devotion to Allah.” SubhanAllah, that’s our AlHuda lesson for next week inshaAllah but just thinking about – we get so caught up in things that we forget the Salah – the connection with our Rabb who is the Only One who will get us through the situation. I’m so looking forward to this lesson inshaAllah.
A GEM from this week’s lesson: In verse 229, the word ‘Hudood’ comes 4 times in this one verse! SubhanAllah, in just one verse, we’re being reminded to remember the boundaries/limits of Allah and to not cross them. SubhanAllah, that’s the first thing that is forgotten in times of distress.
Now off to school work… alhamdulillah.
