Who am I and why am I here? Part 9

Coming to an end

Think about it. You may be living in this life but in reality you are in the intensive care unit by the will of Allah. Allah leaves you to do whatever you can or whatever you want, and when the time comes, if He loves you, He will purify you by illness or calamity before you die. This is a great hope, and the silver lining for all of us. He purifies you to take you from this life with a pure heart and complete surrender to Him.

Who am I and why am I here? Part 7

Reaching the End

A few beautiful verses to just reflect and this is only if your iman is alive and you can see and comprehend:

It is Allah who has created seven heavens and of the earth, the like of them. [His] command descends among them so you may know that Allah is over all things competent and that Allah has encompassed all things in knowledge. (Al Qur'an 65:12)

And I will give them time. Indeed, my plan is firm. (Al Qur'an 7:183)

Who am I and why am I here? Part 5

The Sunnah of Allah

Allah's method will never change. Allah has sunnan (precedent) or a fixed way of doing things:

[This is] the established way of Allah with those who passed on before; and you will not find in the way of Allah any change. (Al Qur'an 33:62)

But you will never find in the way of Allah any change, and you will never find in the way of Allah any alteration. (Al Qur'an 35:43)
