The three keys to success(DW#755 )

Continuing with our reflections on verses from Chapter 29 of the Quran, Sura Ankabut [The Spider], in verse 45, the Quran lays out a three-point plan for success in this world and the next.
Recite that which has been revealed to you of the Book and keep up prayer; surely prayer keeps (one) away from indecency and evil, and certainly the remembrance of Allah is the greatest, and Allah knows what you do. [Holy Quran 29:45]

So the Holy Prophet (saw) is being told to announce that the way to keep focus in this world, and to seek strength through the trials of life is to

1)    recite the Book,
2)    establish Salaat and
3)    engage in constant Remembrance or Zikr.

Let us explore the first one today:

1)    Recite the Book:
 The Quran is the operating manual for human beings laid out by the Creator for the optimal functioning of human beings.
Since the Creator knows the subtleties of our makeup and has the vision to know what can side rail us, He provides the perfect road map for us to live up to our full potential and save ourselves from untold distress and loss both here and in the hereafter.

Whatever we need to function at our optimum and to connect to Him is found in this Book: knowledge and wisdom, advice and admonition, the recognition of what is right and wrong, what is harmful and beneficial, the healing and solace to what ails us in our hearts and souls, as well as lessons from history to show us the traps of ego and arrogance that previous peoples have fallen into.

This is the one text what we need to read and put into practice to pass all the tests and trials that have been talked about in this Sura.

Reciting the book means to read it, to understand it, to reflect upon it and to apply it in our lives so that the guidance becomes internalized and illuminates the path we are to walk on.
