The Verse That Changed My Life

By Melody


Salaam, this is a note I made about a verse that really helped me change everything round for me. Maybe it will shed light to others the way it shed light to me.

وَلَقَدْ كَرَّمْنَا بَنِى ءَادَمَ وَحَمَلْنَـهُمْ فِى الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ وَرَزَقْنَـهُمْ مِّنَ الطَّيِّبَـتِ وَفَضَّلْنَـهُمْ عَلَى كَثِيرٍ مِّمَّنْ خَلَقْنَا تَفْضِيلاً ♥

"And We have certainly honored the children of Adam and carried them on the land and sea and provided for them of the good things and preferred them over much of what We have created, with [definite] preference." 17:70

This ayah changed my life. Completely changed my outlook on life and on myself.

How, after reading this verse can you ever be harsh on yourself again? Knowing that Your Lord, your Creator, your Sustainer, is telling you, informing you that He has favoured you above His creations?

How special does that make you feel? Howw can you EVER degrade yourself, knowing your status, knowing your value? You are not cheap. You are worth so so much ♥

“Your souls are precious, and can only be equal to the price of Paradise. Therefore, sell them only at that price." Umaar ibn Al-Khattab

"...We have preferred them over much of what We have created" - This Ayah indicates that human are also preferred over the angels.... Imagine!!!!!! Allah has favoured you above aaaall of these creations - even the angels - And they are PERFECT!

You see ... I realised ... The fact of the matter is, Allah doesn't want you to be perfect. He created you knowing that you'll make mistakes - That's the beauty of it!! He favours humans above His creation, because we can make these mistakes! We have been given the privilege of being able to think for ourselves, we have the beautiful gift of freewill ♥ imagine not being able to express yourself, imagine not being able to think for yourself?? .... and because we have this freewill, because we have the choice to return to Him, that's what makes us special. He doesn't care that you have a million flaws. He knows each and every one of them, and He also knows how to get you out of them.

But what He wants, is to see you return to Him again and again and again. He is the All-Merciful, the All-Powerful, the All-Wise. He has saved His mercy for mankind. If we did not make mistakes, He would replace our nation with ones who did!

Don't you see. How lucky you are to be human. You have this amazing honour, this amazing privilege, this amaaazing opportunity... to use your freewill. And if you use it wisely, you will be 'khair al-bariyya" = the BEST of all creation!!! How absolutely amaaaazing is that ♥ how blessed do you feel knowing you have that status, knowing He chose YOU.

I just wanted to share this with you, because, really, we all go through bad times in our life, times where we feel like we're worthless. But remember this verse. Remember it always, always, always. Keep it close to your heart. It truly is the most beautiful thing, to know how valuable you are, to return to Your Lord, to live by His way... to know where you stand in life, to know that you are aiming for something much much greater and to know that Your Lord is with you, always and forever ♥

MashaAllah, great article! Bought tears to my eyes as lately I've been feeling so down about myself, feeling like I'm not worthy of islam or the blessings that Allah gives me but alhamdulillah rab al alameen... Allah gives and forgives. I don't think we can even begin to imagine the extent of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala's mercy, truly
He is Arhamar rahimeen.

Exactly! Life is so valuable, every moment we live are so valuable, every breath we take are so valuable . . . . .we should never be bored, never be hopeless. Life is a beautiful gift from Allah. It is worth spending a lifetime pondering over the gift He has blessed us with. But then, only few ponders, and humans are indeed ungrateful . . . . .
