Nourishment for the Soul

..."But it may happen that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. And Allah knows and you know not." 2:216 ♥

‎...Subhan'Allah - its amazing how the verse above of the Qur'an starts off by talking about jihad and not wanting to participate in it - but if you delve deeper it can also mean daily jihad - daily struggle - that of the nafs (soul) - striving to leave bad habits and do good deeds and how many things in life we think are good for us but in fact they are bad for us and vice versa and ultimately how Allah's knowledge is greater and ours is limited...

***Reflection Moment***

Have you ever been through something and you think it is good for you yet it doesn't come your way and then you get angry and frustrated - or you don't want something but it just won't leave you?

I had a good reminder from my facebook buddies this week. I haven't been too well (again!) and I was kinda 'complaining' and they questioned whether I was complaining about being constantly purified every moment and how Allah loves to purify us - I mean rather the purification here than hell-fire later, right?! So the above verse came into mind.

I think it will help you - so go ahead, reflect and ponder and be happy that there is someone who is taking care of all your affairs all the time - Allah! :)

The Qur'an is truly amazing in its meaning and application...
