What is the first thing you do when you wake up? Grab your phone to scroll through social media? Well, you are missing out on something major – lessons from the Glorious Quran. Each chapter in the Quran carries enough wisdom to illuminate our lives and in turn, our hereafter. So does Surah Aal-e-Imran. Here are a few lessons to learn from this beautiful and powerful chapter of the Quran!
Lessons from Surah Aal-e-Imran
Think with an open mind
“Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding.”
In this verse of Surah Aal-e-Imran, Allah clearly asks us to reflect ver everything we see around it. Because in everything we see, are His signs. Be it the growing of a flower from a tiny seed to the alteration of day and night. Be it the crawling of an ant to the impeccable balance of the solar system, everything in this universe should remind us of Him. Reflecting over the creation should tell us what the Creator is capable of and how impeccable He must be.
Pray, pray and pray
“Those who remember Allah while standing, sitting or (reclining) on their backs, and reflect in the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): ‘Our Lord! You have not created this in vain. Glory to You! Save us, then, from the Fire. Our Lord! Whomever You cause to enter the Fire, him You indeed bring to disgrace, and there will be none to succor the wrong-doers. Our Lord! Indeed we heard a crier calling to the faith saying: “Belief in your Lord”; so we did believe.
Our Lord, forgive us our sins, and wipe out our evil deeds and make us die with the righteous.
This verse concisely reminds us that our purpose in life is to worship Allah. Those who worship Allah without fail will have beautiful ends and beautiful things to look forward to in the hereafter.
This world can deceive us temporarily but then there is this verse – reminding us where we need to flex our energies.
“Our Lord, and grant us what You promised us through Your messengers and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed, You do not fail in [Your] promise. And their Lord responded to them, “Never will I allow to be lost the work of [any] worker among you, whether male or female; you are of one another. So those who emigrated or were evicted from their homes or were harmed in My cause or fought or were killed – I will surely remove from them their misdeeds, and I will surely admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow as reward from Allah, and Allah has with Him the best reward.”
This world is a test. Those who pass this test will be given something that is beyond the scope of their imagination. Every struggle and every pain will fade away in face of the reward promised by Allah.
