Talking to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala (SWT) – Part 1
When was the last time you really poured your feelings out to Allah? Psychology studies have found that talking about one’s problems is one of the most effective coping strategies. And so you can talk to parents, family members, friends, siblings anyone you trust most but sometimes they are not always available or they don’t understand. Talking to Allah SWT strengthens our bond with Him, it also benefits us by making us feel lighter. Allah knows our deepest thoughts. The amount of Allah’s attention is incomparable to anyone or anything and whether we speak loud verbally or just with a tiny voice talking in our heart or thoughts that cross our mind, every single word of it is listened by Allah and nothing goes unnoticed, none goes to waste or unattended by Him SWT. There’s a great book about this topic called “Talk To Allah” by @ayeshasyahira (It’s worth reading)
Talking to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala (SWT) Part 2
Almighty Allah as the Creator Communicates with His creation. Do we as His creatures communicate with Him? Surely, humans rely on communication in life, we communicate with our friends, family and colleagues. But do we communicate with the One who should be the centre of our lives? Allah communicates with us through His words in the Quran and through the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). At times when we feel happy and we want to express that happiness or we feel
confused or sometimes we feel sad about how people treat us, we should talk to Allah SWT. We often forget that Allah is the only One who is always with us and always listening and never leaves us. Allah has told us in the Quran that He is listening:
And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided. SAHIH INTERNATIONAL (2:186)
