Lessons from surah al Inshirah

No comment yet


I know that I often take my literature from non-Muslim sources. This is because I feel that as Muslims, we need to understand any topic fully, by exploring the ideas of Muslims and non-Muslims. At the end of the day though, it is clear that Allah's Word gives us the complete and comprehensive perspective. In the 94th surah of the Qur'an, Allah tells us that He gives us some difficulties but these difficulties will always be followed by ease and that the ease is greater than the difficulty people face. In any case, the difficulty we experience is almost always a way for us to learn from our mistakes and a means for us to increase in our Iman and to get closer to Allah SWT. Anybody who reflects on this surah and relates to his or her experiences will always be able to face difficulties with an optimistic and resilient frame of mind.
