We’re blessed, but deprived…

Standard

In the name of Allah.

Who doesn’t have a smartphone/tablet/laptop/electronic gadget of some sort today?

In fact, many of us probably have one of these, or one of each, or even more than one of each…

Yes, so Alhamdulillah, we’re blessed with these fabulous gadgets that we use for hours on end.

We have all the time to use our digital darlings, but we’re deeply deprived.

Why?

Because which of us doesn’t have a Qur’an application on our devices, or a means to access it via WiFi or internet, but we chose to avoid it.

We have the time to make consecutive phone calls and messages. Minutes turn to hours. Granted, we’re busy- but we’ve got five, ten, fifteen minutes to spare to update our social media accounts, to browse the web, to take selfies…

When will we decide to read a verse or two of the Qur’an? It’s not that we don’t have time for it, it’s that we won’t make time for it…

Don’t we know what we’re missing out on? Our hearts are heavy, our minds are overwhelmed, our problems are many, yet we have the solutions, in the Qur’an. If only we would read.

The Qur’an is a healing, guidance and a mercy for the believers. Please read a few lines from Surah Ar-Rahman.
