Serenity Comes from The Quran



I've been having some issues the last few days. I won't go into details, but it has not been fun. In any case, a friend of mine offered me some comfort and words of wisdom. Of course these words came from the Quran.

O you who believe! Take care of your own selves. If you follow the right guidance and enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong no hurt can come to you from those who are in error. The return of you all is to Allah, then He will inform you about (all) that which you used to do." [5:105]


These words are perfect. They give me serenity in times of turmoil, and they show me that to Allah swt, we will return. We all strive to follow the right guidance. Some have different ideas of what that is than others, but if you follow Quran and Sunnah, and enjoin good and forbid evil this ayat tells us that no harm can come to us.

Subhanallah, these words are so beautiful. This is the idealist in me speaking, but I truly believe that if everyone just followed these simple words then the world would be a completely different place than it is now.

You have a very difficult situation to deal with here. I know that you know what is right, and what is wrong. Please contact an imam before taking such a big step.

Assalamu Alaikum, subhan'ALLAH, this is perfect. I am not going through a huge test right now, but there are some things that are bothering me...and masha'ALLAH, this verse just puts me at ease. Its so surreal and beautiful how the qur'an guides us even when we don't know it.
