Positivity is about feeling thankful and focusing on the good. Here are four examples of how the Quran teaches positivity.
By Sheima Sumer
1. The Quran teaches that being thankful benefits YOU:
“…Whoever gives thanks benefits his own soul”¦” (Holy Quran 31:12)
2. The Quran encourages us to focus on the good:
When Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) experienced the tragic death of another child, Allah sent down a Quranic verse to console him with positivity: The Prophet was encouraged to focus on the positive during an immense loss.
“Indeed, We have granted you (O Muhammad), Al-Kawthar (a grand river in Paradise).” (108:1)
3. The Quran teaches that problems are opportunities to learn: The point of our growth in this world is to reflect and learn wisdom:
“It is He Who created you from dust, then from a drop of fluid, then from a tiny clinging form, then He brought you forth as infants, then He allowed you to reach maturity…so that you may reflect.” (40:67)
4. The Quran teaches you to look for the best in yourself, because Allah looks for the best in you:
“To whoever, male or female, does good deeds and has faith, We shall give a good life and reward them according to the best of their actions.” (16:97)
Allah will reward us according to the best of our deeds. Focus on your positive qualities, nobody is perfect.
