Among symptoms of following vain desire is that you hasten to do something that is bad but seems good. You begin doing it with excitement and laughing. Sheytan beautifies it and makes attractive. But later on, it turn to regret and sadness. Have you experienced this? If not, see from people who do evils around you.

The Best Guidance

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. All the systems, legislation and values the Qur’ān promotes are based first and foremost on faith. Hence, a person who does not, deep at heart, believe in God or accept that this Qur’ān is revealed by God or that its contents represent the system God wants implemented in human life, cannot find the desired guidance in the Qur’ān and will not share in the joyful news it brings.
