Guidance – Hidayah

Allah the Most high, says,

“Those who believe, and work righteousness, their Lord will guide them because of their faith, beneath them will flow rivers in gardens of bliss.”

[Al Qur’an 10:9]

And this is what we need most. Just because we are believers, it doesn’t mean that we don’t need guidance. We need guidance in every moment of our lives.

The most frequent dua that one makes is in Surah Al-fatihah – “Oh Allah guide us to the straight path.” [Al Qur’an 1:5]

So Allah will guide them because of their iman

We cannot live without the guidance and tawfiq (ability to do good) of Allah


Inviting to Islam in a beautiful way

Inviting to Islam in a beautiful way

Allah, the Most High says;

“Invite (mankind) to the way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious. Truly, your Lord best knows who has strayed from His path and He best knows those who are guided.”

[Al Qur’an 16:125]


“ ‘And argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious’ means, if any of them want to debate and argue, then let that be in the best manner, with kindness, gentleness and good speech. ‘Truly, your Lord best knows who has strayed from His path’ means, Allah already knows who is doomed (destined for Hell) and who is blessed (destined for Paradise). This has already been written with Him and the matter is finished, so call them to Allah, but do not exhaust yourself with regret over those who go astray, for it is not your task to guide them. You are just a warner, and all you have to do is convey the Message, and it is He Who will bring them to account.” [Tafsir ibn Kathir]

Following the guidance of Allah(swt)

Following the guidance of Allah(swt)

“…then whosoever follows My Guidance he shall neither go astray,nor shall he be distressed. But whosoever turns away from My Reminder(i.e. neither believes in this Qur’an nor acts on its teachings.) verily, for him is a life of hardship…” (Surah Taha: 123-124)


Most commentators of the Qur’an say that “a life of Hardship” refers to the punishment of the grave. It is likely that a believer may face some sort of hardship in this world as a test from Allah. However the state of the believer is such that the believer is patient during hardship and difficulty and grateful during ease and comfort, through which the Believer is in a perpetual state of peace and contentment. In contrast, the disbelievers (or the disobedient, sinful believers) may experience many comforts in this world, and are free to do whatever they want. However, they are deprived of inner peace and tranquillity, and in the grave for them will be a ‘life of hardship’. And Allah knows best.
