Day 27: When you feel overpowered…

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Aya of the Day:

 

54:10
54:11
So he invoked his Lord, “Indeed, I am overpowered, so help.” Then We opened the gates of the heaven with rain pouring down [Surat al-Qamar, 54:10]
Lesson of the Day: When you feel overpowered…

Imagine calling people to Islam for 950 years, only to be ridiculed, taunted and beaten- for the whole time. How would you feel? That moment of being broken, dejected, overpowered and defeated- how sincerely and desperately would you call on your Lord? That was the state of Noah (as). He called out to God that He was overpowered and needed His help, and so almost immediately, Allah opened the gates of heaven with rain pouring down, and saved Noah (as) and those who followed him.

When was the last time you called out to God like that? Ramadan is almost over, but there is still that chance so call out to your Lord with pure devotion.
