Pondering Over Al Qur'an

أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ أَمْ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبٍ أَقْفَالُهَا

“Will they not then ponder the Qur’an or are there locks upon their hearts?”[Muhammad, 47:24]


Dear brothers and sisters, how many times do we complain in a day? How many times are we blaming the conditions we have in life? How often are we blaming our condition and being ungrateful of it?

Perhaps if we are able to see the size of the blessing coming, we will understand the magnitude of the battle we are fighting. But even if He allows us to see it, do you think we are able to deal with it? 

كِتَابٌ أَنْزَلْنَاهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَارَكٌ لِيَدَّبَّرُوا آيَاتِهِ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ
“It is a Book We have sent down to you, full of blessing, so let people of intelligence ponder (liyaddabbaru) its Signs and take heed.” [Saad, 38:29]
But, Mashallah..have you ever wondered? What if it was us, the ones who were talked about in this verse. Mashallah brother and sister, how ungrateful we had been... (read this...)

Dear brothers and sisters, let's look in ourselves...
are there locks, 

upon our hearts?
