Faith

Light up your heart…

While waiting for my food to arrive, I decided to listen to a Friday Khutbah by Ustadh Nouman Ali khan where he focused on an Ayah in Surah An-Nur (The light)…

You know how you have used a phrase for a long time yet you never really know what the phrase truly means?
I mean I would normally say “May Allah brighten our hearts with his Nur” and I am sure you probably say that too but not for once have I ever pondered over the phrase…
Like what really happens when Allah brightens your heart?

Whoever Allah didn’t give light to, how can they find any light?

You could randomly ask me and I might actually give you an answer, (Alhamdulillah for HIS wisdom) but not as I would have loved to for obvious reasons…

Apparently, When Allah swt brightens a heart with HIS Nur, The light doesn’t just stay in the heart, it doesn’t just spread around your chest, it illuminates, This light is so strong that everyone around you gets illuminated as well….
When you open someone’s chest you don’t see light but on the day of resurrection our faith becomes light (Subhanallah), After our judgement are done on the day of resurrection, we would all have to take a walk and people who has faith with them will be aided by the light from their chest and hands as there would be darkness all through… Subhanallah….

The light in the chest: your sincerity to Allah and how genuine your faith is, which is between you and Allah…
The other being the representation of our good deeds.

Focus: The Light in our chest…

This is Qur’an, Iman, Ihsan, Tawwakul, and Barakah all together…. (just Imagine) How can it be limited to the chest only? The light of Allah is indeed powerful way more than we can actually Imagine… Subhanallah…It is really important that when we don’t just make Du’as but we also try to understand the Du’as we make….
May Allah Swt brighten our hearts with HIS Nur and may He make all things easy for us… Amin…
