EP20 | Contentment from Revelation | Ramadan Series 2019 | Mufti Menk

Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala has indeed instructed us to be just. if you are just you will achieve contentment, you will be happy when you are a person who’s unjust and you engage in injustice you can never achieve true contentment.

Indeed, Allah orders justice and good conduct and giving to relatives and forbids immorality and bad conduct and oppression. He admonishes you that perhaps you will be reminded. (16:90)

So, Allah is telling you be just, be kind, be good and reach out to your family members and to stay away from the immorality, the evil and transgression.

Allah says if you do good, if you believe and do good we will improve the condition of your living, first on earth and thereafter we will grant you paradise.

Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer – We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the best of what they used to do. (16:97)

When we are calling out towards Allah’s path, you call them with utmost respect not just respect but with wisdom with tact, with the best of words, with the most beautiful of arguments.

Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of who is [rightly] guided.(16:125)

Allah makes mention of the Night Journey that the prophet (saw) Allah made from his house in Makkah to Bayt al-Maqdis in Surat Al-Isra.

Indeed, this Qur’an guides to that which is most suitable and gives good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a great reward. (17:09)

This Quran is a guide. Do you take it as a guide? If you do, good news to you. Do you give it its importance? If you do good news to you. In the month of the Quran how much of the Quran have you learned, how much time do you spend with the Quran on a daily basis? It is the manual that Allah sent you and I, the manuscript through which you will achieve the success of this world and the next.

Allah (swt) Subhanahu WA Ta’ala speaks about those who want only this world and they have forgotten about the hereafter.

Whoever should desire the immediate – We hasten for him from it what We will to whom We intend. Then We have made for him Hell, which he will [enter to] burn, censured and banished. (17:18) But whoever desires the Hereafter and exerts the effort due to it while he is a believer – it is those whose effort is ever appreciated [by Allah ]. (17:19)

Remember when Allah has given you it’s not a sign that he’s happy with you. When I lost taken away from you it’s not a sign that he’s upset with you. It is all to do with the heart your connection with Allah and your contentment either way. – Mufti Menk
