This book helps one develop mentally to succeed and improve your life. Through the Glorious Quran and the Sunnah of Nabi (SAW) this book empowers the reader to increase their spirituality and help develop themselves mentally by controlling their conscious and sub conscious minds.
” With knowledge man rises to the heights of goodness and to a noble position and attains to the perfection of Happiness in the next world ” ( The Noble Messenger Muhammed (SAW) )
Knowledge of Quran and Sunnah helps us to understand our spiritual self and discover the leads and the signs to unleash our higher self. In turn it will bring us peace and happiness in this world and the next.
Take control of Yourself.
Everyday we should learn something new about ourselves, if we do not we will age faster.
The Noble Quran helps us take control of our minds and helps cure the illness of the mind. Allah wants us to control Our Conscious and Sub Conscious because it is the master of our destiny.
The Power of the Sub-Conscious mind
” Whether you show what is in your mind or conceal it, Allah calls you to account for it” (Surah Al- Baqrah) : 284
Almighty Allah controls, runs and plans everything that takes place in the universe. Our Sub-Conscious mind is the creative power that Allah has blessed humanity with. This means that we have angels (Kiraaman and Kaatibeen) the generous recording angels that know all we do and desire.
If we want love, we have to give love. If we want respect, we have to give respect. If we want money, we have to give money (charity). Anything that we want, we have to learn to give. The more we give, the more we attract. If we are selfish, we create blockage. When there are no blockages, the power of Almighty Allah flows through us.
Nabi (SAW) said “that the true believer has penetrating insight for he sees by the ligh of Allah”
The Mind is the most powerful goal striving mechanism
” Do they not ponder in their minds the meeting with Allah” (Surah Ar-Rum) [ayah 8]
Allah has blessed us with the mind which is a powerful mechanism. We should work on reprogramming our minds with positive thoughts and feelings. Always glorify the names of the Almighty Allah, this will inshallah attract and unleash the power of Almighty Allah within us.
YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK
The Power of the Word
“The perfect Muslim is he/she from whose tongue and hands mankind is safe” (The Noble Messenger Muhammed (SAW)
Words are an index to one’s character and personality. Hazrat Ali (ra) said ” Your tongue will speak out what it is accustomed to”
Your behaviour is the index to your mind.
The Power of Positive Thoughts
You are what your thoughts are, without this thinking power you are no more than a jumble of bones and flesh.
Everything we recieve comes through sheer persistance and faith in Almighty Allah.
Control Your Thoughts
“Express not in haste the thoughts of Thy mind. for Thout can reveal them when Thou will” (Shaikh Sa’adi (ra) )
Discpline Your Thoughts
” Whoever has no command over himself becomes subjected to others” (Jalaluddin Rumi (ra) )
The only power we have absolute control and freedom over is our thoughts.
In Surah Al-Baqarah: Allah says ” Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths but for the intention in your hearts” : 225
A Sufi poet wrote ” The picture of the beloved is in the mirror of the heart, you see Him when you bend your head a little, towards the heart, In sufi terminology this is called Muraqabah or meditation.
The Power of Silence
” He who keeps silent will be safe” (Nabi SAW)
There are two types of silence, outer silence and the silence of the heart and mind. The heart of one who trusts completely in Allah is silent, not demanding any means for living.
My Experience from the Book
Alhamdulilah i enjoyed this book very much. I only wanted to touch base on a few things from various chapters in the book so you can all get an idea of what it is all about.
Since reading the book i have a different outlook, my mind and soul feel more at peace. Each day i set myself daily tasks which i carry out. and i have also started making a list of goals which Alhamdulilah i wish to fulfill by the will of The Almighty Allah (SWT).
I Recommend this book for anyone who is seeking to develop their lives spiritually.
A good idea for all of us. Make a list of 6 items, 3 spiritual and 3 material. Each day you should work on those 6 goals, but let your spiritual be either to learn Quran and follow the Sunnah of Nabi (SAW).
Inshallah i hope we all strive toward the correct path so we can Unleash the Power of Almighty Allah Within Us.
