Indeed, listening to stories about Muhammad is what brings Islam alive to many.
Consider the bright morning hours, and the night when it grows still and dark. Thy Sustainer has not forsaken thee, nor does He scorn thee: for, indeed, the life to come will be better for thee than this earlier part [of thy life]! And, indeed, in time will thy Sustainer grant thee [what thy heart desires], and thou shalt be well-pleased.
When people hurt you, God uses these trials to push you to Him. People usually run to more powerful people for help and victory. However, if the person harming you is the most powerful or influential in the town that is hurting you and no one from the people will respond to his oppression and push him/her back within their boundaries, then who does this person go to?
“Allahu Akbar,” which means God is Greater. In this case, it means: God is greater than our imagination, our thoughts, our expectations, our feelings, or our understanding.
May God accept your good deeds and all your efforts during the blessed month of Dhul Hijjah.
