Firmness of Purpose

Subhanallah! Sometimes the Quran is so powerful that Allah's holy words can come back to remind you many days after you read them.

Within the surah of Ta-ha, there is the story of Adam, (a.s.). He lost, as it says in my Mohammed Asad translation, "firmness of purpose."

That one phrase is what is prodding me through my days.


Do I have that?

Do I know who I am?

Are my actions supporting my vision for me and my life?

Inshahallah, my efforts to improve through my days and years will win favor with Allah, whether or not anyone else on earth likes it or not.
