Assalamualaikum, I was just reading Surah ale Imran when I came across these beautiful and amazing verses…Even though I have read this surah many times before but it felt as if I was reading these words for the first time…The description of the things we love and then the way Allah [subhanahu ta’ala] tells us about what’s better…! An awesome dua and some hints on how to acheive that high position!
So touching and so utterly mesmerizing! Jotting them down…Please do read, recite, understand, and contemplate! :)
Beautified for people is the love of that which they desire – of women and sons, heaped-up sums of gold and silver, fine branded horses, and cattle and tilled land. That is the enjoyment of worldly life, but Allah has with Him the best return.
Say, “Shall I inform you of [something] better than that? For those who fear Allah will be gardens in the presence of their Lord beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally, and purified spouses and approval from Allah. And Allah is Seeing of [His] servants – Those who say, “Our Lord, indeed we have believed, so forgive us our sins and protect us from the punishment of the Fire,” The patient, the true, the obedient, those who spend [in the way of Allah], and those who seek forgiveness before dawn. ”
(Surah Ale Imran, 3: 14-17)
Fascinating right? Subhan Allah!
And there is another beautiful verse in Surah as Sajdah which seems related to these verses:
“And no soul knows what has been hidden for them of comfort for eyes as reward for what they used to do.” (Surah as Sajdah, 32:17)
Rasoolullah [sallallahu alyhi wasallam] said, regarding this verse:
“Allah says: ‘Í have prepared for my righteous servants what no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and it has never crossed the mind of man.’ “ [Muslim, Trimidhi]
SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi, Amazing right?
Let us strive and work hard to gain that which ‘Allah calls better’! That which is supposed to be the BEST for us!
May Allah accept our efforts and reward us abundantly in this world and the Hereafter! Ameen!
