The Qur’ān addresses hearts in the first instance and gives all its light and fragrance to an open mind which receives it with certainty and contentment. When a person’s mind is refreshed with firm belief, it can better appreciate the Qur’ān and understand far more of its meanings than we can imagine. It brings about miraculous changes in this life as one adopts a new way of life and discards his old one.

“We bestow of the Qur’ān do from on high what serves as a healing and a blessing to true believers.” (Suura Al-Israa : Verse 82) There is certainly a cure and a blessing for those whose hearts are full of faith. Such hearts brighten up and become ready to receive what the Qur’ān imparts of grace, reassurance and security. There is in the Qur’ān a healing power that cures obsession, anxiety and hesitation.

He is happy and satisfied with what he receives from God and contented with his lot in life. Anxiety, hesitation and obsession are all terrible to experience. As the Qur’ān dispels all these, it is indeed a blessing for true believers. Continue reading →

And I feel happy for being saved from results of my mistakes and guided to the right path. Alhamdulillah!

She doesn’t sleep well until she joins her child. Why they lost themselves? What is the reason behind their roaming? Why can they not find the straight path that is full of light? Continue reading →
