LIVING WITH ALLAH

Special Ramadan Series: ALLAH’S BLESSINGS ARE A PRIVILEGE

Part 3 of 4: LIVING WITH ALLAH

Here is another principle of living with Allah. Know that this world is temporary and that whatever Allah gives you here, He is going to take back. Everything is going to stay here, so do not fight for it. This is the part that seems hard to understand, but actually it is very easy. It may seem as though the good do not get rewarded here on Earth, but trust that Allah gives the reward of the good in the Hereafter because it is ever-lasting. If He gives the reward here, it would not be a useful act because everything that is here is going to go.

“Now, whatever you have been given is only a temporary comfort of the life of this world, but know that what Allah has with Him (in the Hereafter) is better and more lasting for those who believe and entrust their affairs to their Rab [Lord];”

(Qur’an 42:36, translation by the author)
