3 Practices to Spark Your Faith

O ye who believe! Persevere in patience and constancy; vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear Allah. that ye may prosper.

Surah-Imran 3:200

What a lovely passage from the Quran! I want to emphasize three key points from the passage: perseverance, constancy, and fear of God.

I couldn’t agree more with one of the Sheikhs I’ve been hearing about how we can improve our relationship with our Mighty Creator. The Sheikh mentioned these characteristics that we should work on and practice in our daily lives. I’m delighted to share my thoughts with you!

1. Perseverance

Honestly, I’m getting impatient at times. I want to give up and become easily frustrated when things don’t go as planned. However, I realized this should not be my response as a believer. I should persevere! If things don’t go as planned, it only means that something better is on the way. Therefore, when hard times bother me, I breathe and ask for guidance from our Mighty Creator.

Seek Allah’s help with patient perseverance and prayer. It is indeed hard except for those who are humble. (2:45)

Everything happens for a reason; rather than doubting ourselves, we should put our trust in God Almighty. Find the grit within Him. He will lead us in the right direction. Continue to seek His will, and He will show us the way. His plans and course of action are far superior to ours. Have faith in Him. Always. These are the mantras and reminders we must remember.

2. Constancy

I noticed that I had a spiritual growth backlog at times. I have become sluggish and inconsistent in my reading, listening, and contemplation for no apparent reason. Am I losing my faithfulness to the Lord? Am I disloyal to Him and His words?

It makes me sad, and the guilt is palpable. This event teaches me about God’s amazingly unconditional love for us. Even if we aren’t consistent enough, He allows us to reclaim and reboot ourselves daily. We are humans, and He understood us. And being backlogged does not make us immoral.

If you feel the same, don’t be discouraged. Fight for it. And that is constancy. Become a consistent follower of truth. Be consistent in reminding yourself about how God loves you and how He wants you to be His good servant. Be consistent in strengthening others to believe and to keep fighting for faith. Again, trust Him. Always.

Say: “Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector”: and on Allah let the Believers put their trust. (9:51)

3. Fear God

Fear of God is the most important of all. Fear God. It doesn’t mean you have to ‘fear’ Him in a negative way. At first, I thought that fearing God means following His commandments because not doing so will lead me to punishment. Hellfire. I felt that fearing God means I should do good deeds to be listed in the Book of Life. I fear that He will ‘forsake’ me.

But I realized that the genuine fear is the fear of losing Him, the fear of not pleasing Him. Our most profound need is to be with Him, our Creator! The fear of not being able to worship God continuously. I think that’s the fear that we must look at.

Say ye: “We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Isma’il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) prophets from their Lord: We make no difference between one and another of them: And we bow to Allah (in Islam).” (2:136)
