dua is the best source of getting close to almighty Allah. He hears, listens and answers our prayers. We should be confident and believe it religiously that our prayers are answered here or will be realized hereafter but never be ignored
Semra I kept saying Amen all during the young Minister’s message!! He is on point! The same thing goes on in the church. We must be humble and faithful before our God. Sadly we have time for everything else in this life except for God and his Holy Word. His sermon is the heart of God sent for all peoples.
Immediately I was reminded of the following Jesus parable.
Luke 18:12-14 Amplified Bible (AMP)
12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I gain.
13 But the tax collector, [merely] standing at a distance, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but kept striking his breast, saying, O God, be favorable (be gracious, be merciful) to me, the [a]especially wicked sinner that I am!
14 I tell you, this man went down to his home justified (forgiven and made upright and in right standing with God), rather than the other man; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was keen to fast on Mondays and Thursdays.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Fasting three days of each month is fasting for a lifetime, and ayaam al-beed are the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.”
They have certainly disbelieved who say, ” Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary” while the Messiah has said, “O Children of Israel, worship Allah , my Lord and your Lord.” Indeed, he who associates others with Allah – Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers.They have certainly disbelieved who say, ” Allah is the third of three.” And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.So will they not repent to Allah and seek His forgiveness? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful…Surat Al-Ma’idah [5:72-73-74]
May Allah gives us good knowledge that will lead us to success in this life and the life after.May Allah always guide us to the straight path that will lead into Heaven.❤
