(Al Baqarah: 186)
My teacher taught me about the importance of purifying the heart and how crucial it is to keep myself in a state of constantly remembering Allah in my effort of purifying the heart.
I asked my teacher, " How am I going to to do that? It's vey difficult..."
My teacher replied, " Did you ask from Him?.... May be you did. But you were not confident. You must believe in Him, one hundred percent..."
One hundred percent, nothing less.
I must find that faith. One hundred percent faith.
Religion can be inherited. But not faith. I must take my own journey to find it.
"Remember Me - I will remember you. Give thanks to Me and do not be ungrateful. O you who believe, seek help with patience perseverance and prayer; for God is with those who patiently persevere"
( Al Baqarah: 152 - 153 )
May Allah make it easy for me this Ramadan.
May Allah guide me always.
