Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World
(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)
When people invite people to a party with booze and boogey, people say yes with great alacrity: those you know and those you don’t.
Or even for a simple community Cook-Out.
That is because there are all kinds of internal and external facilitators working to make that happen.
But when people invite people to come to a Qur’an Session, where God Almighty’s word could be read and studied and understood, then many people tend to drag their feet. All of a sudden, all kinds of difficulties and excuses pop up along the way.
That is because there is a whole host of internal inhibitors and external pressures working to make things difficult for everyone involved, when the party pertains to God and his work.
The Devil and his multitudes, both human and Jinn, would rather you sleep the afternoon off than go and study the Qur’an with those who can help you to read and understand it better.
There is nothing the Devil and his minions want more than to stop you from ever getting close to God’s Word on earth: the Noble Qur’an.
However, the key to success in these situations is patience and perseverance. What the Qur’an calls Sabr.
As Allah says in the Qur’an: Success comes with patience.
Wa Tawaasau Bilhaqqi Wa Tawaasau Bis-Sabr, is how the Qur’an puts it.
