In the episode one of a beautiful series entitled ‘Contentment From Revelation’ (CFR) of Ramadan 2019 in view to achieving #contentment by going through the Quran MuftiMenk made mention of the verses of Surah Surah Al Fatiha and Surah Al-Baqarah.
we are all searching for happiness for contentment and for success, in order to achieve this the Almighty has revealed so many verses and so many books, so many it’s up to us to go through this and to understand the plan of the Almighty when we understand the plan of the Almighty. We will definitely be able to achieve contentment.
Remember one thing; the Almighty when He created us did not promise us that we will be the most wealthy or we will be the most influential etc, but rather He promises us that if you were to follow what I tell you, you will be happy, you will be content. May the Almighty grant us all contentment.
Always understand the mercy of Allah. It will fill us with hope; it will fill us with goodness. We will be content and happy when we’ve understood the mercy of Allah.
He is indeed very merciful. He is indeed so so kind. He has given us so much that we didn’t even ask for that is the mercy of Allah subhanahu wata’ala. When you call out to Allah He will definitely hear. if you don’t call out to Allah you are not going to be able to achieve that contentment, understand He’s in control, understand what He wants from you.
When we’ve called out to Allah subhanahu wata’ala and we believe in Him firmly. It brings us towards the rest of the creatures of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala, the kindness towards them is what comes from us. Because we’ve understood that Allah made me and he made all the other creatures as well.
If you develop your relationship with your maker you will definitely be from among those who achieve contentment because you’ve developed your relationship with your Maker.
Mufti Menk points out the following three points for achieving contentment for the soul / heart from the #Quran:
“1. You must believe in the unseen,
- You must establish your prayer to develop your relationship with Allah.
- You’ve reached out to others by spending what the Almighty has given you.
No one has achieved contentment by being miserly, by being stingy, by being selfish but rather people have achieved contentment by becoming very very generous”.
