Chapter #28-29: Devotion

Written by: Barah


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تُلْهِكُمْ أَمْوَالُكُمْ وَلَا أَوْلَادُكُمْ عَنْ ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ ۚ وَمَنْ يَفْعَلْ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ”

“وَاذْكُرِ اسْمَ رَبِّكَ وَتَبَتَّلْ إِلَيْهِ تَبْتِيلًا

“O you who have believed, let not your wealth and your children divert you from remembrance of God . And whoever does that – then those are the losers.”
“And remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with [complete] devotion.”

[Sahih International][63:9; 73:8]


Devotion to God is everything. Remembering God in everything you do is key! Don’t let anything divert your attention from God, not your wealth, not, your children! These things are blessings from God, so how will you allow them to take your attention from Him? Anyone who doesn’t remember God and allows these worldly things to divert him …those are the people who will miss out in this life and the next.
