Welcome to Abdullah Musa Abdul's world

The blame is not on the one who does not accept advice. Rather, it is on the one who presents it inappropriately

The Power of Intuitive Reasoning!!!

Islam presents facts then gives us opportunity to employ our reasoning to appreciate the depth kept in the evidences at our disposal.

Allaah has gifted us with the power of intuitive reasoning and decision making and He will use this to judge us in relation to our actions and inaction.

Qur'an is inundated with verses that strike the sensitive nerves in our brains to stimulate the mind to appreciate the Greatness of Allaah (SWT) and to come to terms with the fact that only He deserved to be worshipped.

Nothing gives me a greater thrill than reading verses that introduces Allaah to the creation.

Of such verses we have Q6:2-3; Q6:12-13; Q39:38; Q29:61; Q43:9; Q23:78-80; Q23:84-89; Q24:40-45; Q25:2; Q25:45-49; Q25:53-55; Q25:59; Q 26:78-82; Q28:60-65;

All these verses engage our intellect to come to terms with the fact that we need to be dutiful to Allaah without any feeling of duress on our part.

Allaah has given us an intuitive mind, it is left for us to either use it to understand fully why Allaah created us or to systematically restrain it from seeing reasons.

Allaah left nothing out in introducing Himself to the creation. The creation only needs to apply sense and reasoning to appreciate the Qur'an.

‎A lost heart finds its navigation by flipping through the pages of the Qur'an.

We cannot possibly purify our hearts unless we task our minds to work, making an inroad for faith and security into our hearts.

To this, I echo the resounding Words of Allaah in Q6:125 

‎"And whomsoever Allaah wills to guide, He opens his breast to Islam, and whomsoever He wills to send astray, He makes his breast closed and constricted, as if he is climbing up to the sky. Thus Allah puts the wrath on those who believe not."

He who's not worshipping Allaah as He should be worshipped should start doing so because there's pleasure in worshipping He Who does not gain from our servitude.

Being an intelligent believer, reflecting upon the creations of Allaah and by virtue of that getting closer to Allaah epitomizes the pinnacle of servitude.

Reflect upon the above verses I listed and you will appreciate the vantage point at which a believer sees things.

I leave you with these words: The manner in which the giver of good advice behaves does not diminish the value of the advice. 

May Allaah expose us to the reality of Iman.‎
