I Qur’anic Verse of the Day

 

Polytheism is Unforgivable

 

اِنَّ اللّٰہَ لَا یَغۡفِرُ اَنۡ یُّشۡرَکَ بِہٖ وَ یَغۡفِرُ  مَا دُوۡنَ ذٰلِکَ لِمَنۡ یَّشَآءُ ۚ وَ مَنۡ یُّشۡرِکۡ بِاللّٰہِ فَقَدِ افۡتَرٰۤی  اِثۡمًا عَظِیۡمًا .(48:4)

 

God will not forgive those who [intentionally] ascribe partners to Him; but lesser than this [sin] He can forgive any sin for anyone He intends [according to His law]. And, [in fact], he who ascribed partners to God is guilty of a dreadful sin. (4:48)

Istikharah

 

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَخِيرُكَ بِعِلْمِكَ وَأَسْتَقْدِرُكَ بِقُدْرَتِكَ وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ الْعَظِيمِ فَإِنَّكَ تَقْدِرُ وَلَا أَقْدِرُ وَتَعْلَمُ وَلَا أَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتَ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوبِ اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرَ خَيْرٌ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي فَاقْدُرْهُ لِي وَ يَسِّرْهُ لِي ثُمَّ بَارِكْ لِيْ فِيْهِ وَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرَ شَرٌّ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي  فَاصْرِفْهُ عَنِّي وَاصْرِفْنِي عَنْهُ وَاقْدُرْ لِي الْخَيْرَ حَيْثُ كَانَ ثُمَّ رَضِّنِي بِهِ

 

O God! I seek goodness through Your knowledge and through Your might I seek strength, and I request from You Your great blessings, because You have the might and I do not have the might. You know everything and I do not know, and You have knowledge of the unseen. God! If in Your knowledge this action [which I intend to do] is better with regard to my religion, my life and my fate, then destine it for me and make it easy for me and then add blessings to it for me. God! In Your knowledge if this action is evil for me, for my religion and for my fate, then turn it away from me and [God!] whatever is better for me, ordain that for me wherever it is, and then make me satisfied with it.[1]
