Don’t you get it?!
No matter how great it looks from your perspective, it’s easy for Him!
Take it up with Him! Subḥāneh.
Man transgresses because he *sees* himself to be self-sufficient. But he’s not self sufficient. Man can never be self-sufficient.
Because of his “success” in this world, because of his wealth and his perceived power, man starts to think that he is his own provider, his own sustainer.
Nay. We are poor and needy in front of our Lord.
The mere thought of seeing ones self self-sufficient is a transgression.
Never be fooled; we are not in control, He is. Subḥāneh.
If you look at religions other than Islām, you will find that most are based around meditation involving ‘clearing the mind’ to attain peace and spirituality.
Islām, the True religion, involves remembrance to attain peace and spirituality, which, upon assessment, is the only viable approach.
Because realistically speaking, the mind never really clears, it moves from one thought to another— even when it rests; when we sleep! Hence we dream what we dream. :)
It is a clear conclusion that only when when you fill your mind with thoughts, and remember: do Dhikr, will you truly be able to attain a continuous and lasting peace and a heightened spiritual state.
Al-Musayyib Ibn Ra’fi’ reported that Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (رضي الله عنه) said: “A memoriser of the Qur’ān should be known for his long night prayers when people are asleep, his fasting when people are eating, his sadness when people are happy, his silence when people are talking nonsense, and his humbleness when people are not. He should be wise, gentle and not talk to much: he should not be rude, negligent, clamorous, nor hot tempered. “ [Ibn Al Jawzee, Sifaat As-Safwa: 1/413]
This also applies to those who are already memorising the Qur’ān . At the end of the day, you’re carrying the Words of Allāh in your heart and you need to act upon it.
