O sons and daughters ( excerpts from the Chapter on The Wisdom of LUQMAN)

Dear children,O sons and daughters,

  • You shall be thankful to God, and whoever is thankful is being thankful for his own good. As for whosoever rejects and refuses , then God is Rich, Praiseworthy and does not need your gratitude
  • do not set up any partners with God; for setting up partners is an immense wrongdoing
  • GOD enjoined the human being regarding relationship with parents. Your  mother bore you with hardship upon hardship, and your weaning takes two calendar years. You shall give thanks to God, and to your parents. To God is the final destiny.
  • Even if the parents  strive to make you set up any partners besides God, then do not obey. But continue to treat them amicably in this world.
  • You shall follow only the path of those who have sought God. Ultimately, you all return to God, then God will inform you of everything you have done.
  • If it be anything even as the weight of a mustard seed, be it deep inside a rock, or be it in the heavens or the Earth, God will bring it. God is Sublime and Expert
  • Hold the contact/direct communication  to God through Solat
  • advocate righteousness and forbid evil,
  • Bear with patience whatever befalls you. These are the most honourable traits
  • Do not turn your cheek arrogantly from people
  • Nor shall you roam the Earth insolently. For God does not like the arrogant show offs
  • Be humble in how you walk and
  • Lower your voice. For the harshest of all voices is the donkey’s voice
  • See that God has committed in your service everything in the heavens and the Earth,
  • See that  He has showered you with His blessings, both apparent and hidden
  • Do not argue about God without knowledge, without guidance, and without an enlightening Scripture.
  • Follow that which God has sent down
  • Do not follow  those that  Say: “No, we will follow what we found our fathers doing.”
  • Do not follow  what  the devil had been leading them to the agony of Hell
  • Whosoever surrenders himself completely to God, while he is righteous, then he has taken hold of the strongest bond. And to God all matters will return.
  • And whosoever rejects, then do not be saddened by his rejection. To God is their ultimate return, then God will inform them of what they had done. God is fully aware of what is inside the chests. God let them enjoy for a while, then God commit them to severe retribution.
  • And if you ask them: “Who created the heavens and the Earth” They will Say: “God.” Say: “Praise be to God.” Yet, most of them do not know.
  • To God belongs everything in the heavens and the Earth. God is the Rich, the Praiseworthy
  • And if all the trees on Earth were made into pens, and the ocean were supplied by seven more oceans, the words of God would not run out. God is Noble, Wise.
  • To God Your creation and your resurrection is all as one breath. God is Hearer, Seer
  • Have you not seen that God merges the night into the day and merges the day into the night, and that He has committed the sun and the moon, each running to a predetermined term; and that God is expert of everything you do
  • God is the truth, and that which they call on besides Him is falsehood,
  • and that God is the High, the Great.
  • Have you not seen the ships sailing the sea, carrying God’s provisions, to show you some of His signs In that are signs for every one who is patient, thankful And when waves surround them like mountains, they call on God, sincerely devoting the system to Him. But when He saves them to the shore, some of them revert. None discard God signs except those who are betrayers, unappreciative
  • Remember !!With God is the knowledge regarding the Hour.
  • God sends down the rain, and
  • He knows what is inside the wombs.
  • No soul knows what it may gain tomorrow, nor does any soul know in which land it will die. God is Knowledgeable, Expert.

Note: the above are excerpts from the Quran Surah LUQMAN
