How much Yaqeen do we truly have in Allah (SWT) ?
This is a question i ask myself each and everyday and sometimes i think to myself i know for a fact that i have full faith in Allah’s decree…but sometimes what i think is not what my heart is feeling
This may be a continued struggle for many and I myself am prone to human error and i have those moments where perhaps my Eemaan is not at the level i desire it to be but there is a huge difference between someone who strives and struggles in cause of Allah than to one who just does not do anything but think oh well i can live like i want and there will be no consequences…i am sure you have tried both ways i sure have…
But what is better…? Think about it
So how much Yaqeen do you truly have ? do you honestly rely soley in the decree of Allah after you have decided upon something, do you honestly wait to know whether it is good or bad for you ?
I think everyday of our lives we should re-evaluate what our position with Allah is ?
Just do one thing after making Dua after your pray Nemaaz and seriously take one deep breathe and ask Allah to take control of your life completely and put a hold on anything that is not good for you as much as you feel that the thing you want and desire is good for you..trust me Allah has other plans for you, ask HIM to provide you with contentment and Yaqeen..so decide what is is you want and go for it and just focus on the path Allah shows you, it will be better and more fulfilling than anything you could ever desire.
You know what is even more resilient is when you clearly see what Allah is showing you i think that is when you realize and will know how strong your Yaqeen is.
So think about these few points
- What level is my Eemaan on
- How do i determine how strong my Yaqeen is
- Make Dua and truly ask Allah too take control of your life
- Let things be and trust that Allah will guide you in the right time
- Desire Allah;s love and nothing else
- Try and remove unwanted things from your heart and start to heal and fill your heart with the love of Allah
Inshallah this is a reminder first and foremost to myself
May Allah allow us to be steadfast and remain strong in our Deen Inshallah
