When we hear about the death of someone we know we have been told to say “Inna Lillahi wa Inna ilayhi rajiun”. This verse from the Quran: Surah 2, Ayat 156 means “Truly to Allah we belong and truly to Him we shall return”.
I may have repeated this Ayat countless times myself at the news of death, but one can use this Ayat for another purpose too.
When I misplace something. I have found it amazing when I find it immediately after repeating the above Ayat. The moment I realize I am not finding the thing I am looking for I go numb with worry. Sometimes I forget to say the Ayat. It takes longer to find what I am looking for, and then it comes to mind what I have to say, and hey in a second I find it.
I can only say:
Countless are the ways His Mercies work
Countless are the ways God Help us through
Countless are the times we forget His Grace
Countless are the times He Forgives us though
