We are used to making reading Quran and Du’a to Allah SWT to guard a traveler from the dangers
of the journey and to protect them from harm, and that they return safely. In fact, we are all
travelers in this life; we get closer to death with every moment of life. There are many potential
harms and dangers which can harm us in this journey (life) so we need Allah’s protection and
safekeeping. the most valuable thing we might worry about in this journey is our faith that leads us
to Allah SWT be pleased with us.
Ibrahim (peace be upon him) said:
“Turn me and my children away from worshipping idols” and
Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
“O, Allah! To You I have submitted, and in You do I believe,
and in You, I put my trust, to You do I turn, and for You, I argued. O Allah, I seek refuge with you
through Your Power; there is none worthy of worship except You Alone; that you safeguard me
against going astray. You are the Ever-Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists; the
One Who never dies, whereas human beings and jinn all die”
And amidst all these misconceptions, doubts, their dangers, and all the people who fell into them,
we are in huge need of praying to Allah SWT to protect us, our families, and our children from these
harms and preserves our faith and Imaan.
The Islamic culture
One of the most important topics in the Noble Quran is: (The Presentation of the Human Being) His
desires, his wills, and whims; psychological urges and his inner drives; The things that keep him
steadfast, and those that demotivate him; ability to be patient, and his breakdown and panic in
the face of calamities and hardships; emotional reactions and inner conflicts when confronted
by evident truths that go against his personal gains; His courage and his cowardice; His generosity
and his stinginess; righteousness and his sinfulness; ignorance and his recklessness; His
self-restraint and his forbearance; pride and his arrogance; His humbleness and his humility;
Furthermore, who is the presenter of this all? The Most Merciful, who is “All-Aware, All-Seeing of
His servants”. For indeed, He is the one who created this creature. How could He not know His
Own creation? For he [alone] is the Most Subtle, All-Aware.” So read the Quran in search of an
understanding of the human being, as I swear by Allah, that you will never find a worldly science
that presents the Human self, his desires, and mechanisms like the Quran. Knowledge about the
Quran = Knowledge about the human being the understanding of the words of the Lord of all
creatures = the understanding of the human soul.
“WHO ARE YOU?”
No matter how much we feel in control of our own small worlds, we will always remain inherently
poor and weak. This poverty and weakness might be masked from the eyes of people by some
facades and different distractions might prevent us from seeing them. But then what? There have to
come times —whether short or long—in which this weakness is exposed. It would then jump out at
you, triggering an inner voice that would cry out asking you, “WHO ARE YOU?” Right then, an
ultimate, time-transcending truth becomes evident to the self: the fact that you are a poor weak
servant, powerless and incapable, and that you are in continuous need for Allah, the Self-Sufficient,
the Greatest, and the Highest. It’s a self-evident truth that touches the bottom of the heart no matter
how hard deniers try to reject it. At that point, people part ways and their feet slip. Either we slip
into desolation, disorientation, depression, and loss of meaning, or Allah provide us with a
connection to him… a connection full of warmth, satisfaction, tranquility, and faith…. a connection
that all the worldly appearances fall short of compensating for. Due to this connection, the soul
travels, freed from the adornments and the burdens of this world, towards complete trust in the
Guardian and the Praiseworthy, Exalted is He. At that time you remember, “Recognize and
acknowledge Allah in times of ease and prosperity, and He will remember you in times of adversity.”
It was the supplication of Prophet Yunus “There are none worthy of worship besides you. Glorified,
are you? Surely I am from the wrongoers.”

intended to God. And remember The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “The believer who recites the
Qur’an is like a citron whose fragrance is sweet and whose taste is delicious. A believer who does not
recite the Qur’an is like a date-fruit that has no fragrance but has a sweet taste. The hypocrite who
recites the Qur’an is like basil whose fragrance is so sweet, but its taste is bitter. The hypocrite who
does not recite the Qur’an is like a colocynth which has no fragrance and its taste is bitter.” God
bless you, God bless you.
