GOD-GIVEN HOPE

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Quranic Wisdom

Complaining against others in this world is meaningless according to the Quran: “If a misfortune befalls you, it is the fruit of your own labours. He forgives much.” (42:30)

This verse of the Quran tells us that whenever a man is afflicted by some misfortune, it is necessarily the result of one or more of his own actions. When everyone must suffer the consequences of his own actions, making protests and complaints against others is only a waste of time. It will in no way solve the problem.

THE FORBIDDEN TREE

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Quranic Wisdom

The story of Adam and Eve is common to both the Bible and the Quran. According to the Quranic account, God created Adam and his wife, Eve and settled the pair in Paradise. Where was this Paradise? The Bible is specific on this point: “The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed.” (Genesis 2:8)
