DAY 4 : MEDITATE
إِنَّ نَاشِئَةَ اللَّيْلِ هِيَ أَشَدُّ وَطْئًا وَأَقْوَمُ قِيلًا
“Indeed, the hours of the night are more effective for concurrence [of heart and tongue] and more suitable for words.”
[Al Qur’an 73:6]
According to a recent estimate, close to 265 million people are affected by depression worldwide. That’s nearly one-fourth of the world’s population. A number of varied factors can cause this illness; however, the root cause stems from not analysing who we are and what our purpose in life is. Hence, we find ourselves indulging in the trails that life throws at us.
This is why Allah سبحانه و تعالى has clearly stated that man must remember his purpose as a Muslim, pondering over Allah’s Deen and his creation. This stimulates our cognitive and subconscious mind to perfect our acts of worship, thereby granting us peace, which in turn boosts our creativity and IQ. When we fulfill our purpose of worshipping Allahسبحانه و تعالى wholeheartedly, life unravels its gifts and our productivity increases steadily, and Shaitaan can no longer harm our mind because, now, it’s filled with the light of knowledge. Remember, only an empty mind can be a devil’s workshop.
May Allah سبحانه و تعالى help us make the most out of our lives. اللهم آمين.
