Wisdom of the Week #4

In the name of God who is Merciful towards all creation and Especially Merciful towards believers

Quran states that humankind is sitting at the table of God’s banquet, with an endless flow of His grace and blessings upon us. However, there have been nations who deprived themselves of this continuous flow of mercy by negative changes in their being. (Quran Al-Anfal 53, Al-Raad 11)

From God’s side, it is always mercy, grace, and abundance. It is upon us to be cautious about our bad behavior and to keep this flow of mercy running by avoiding behavioral anomalies.

Humankind has caused abnormal climate changes and extinction crisis of species by inappropriate actions. Our current bioenvironmental problems are in fact the aftermath of these activities. Mother nature and the environment have always been in a good state until humankind’s interventions which have contaminated and destroyed them.

This is also true about the flow of Divine mercy in the entire universe. If nations stay away from negative changes and behaviors, the flow of God’s mercy will be indefinite. The vital factor in having peace, and an abundance of comfort and well-being for people is to stay away from bad and inappropriate behaviors so they don’t deprive themselves of a kind and loving look.
