Finding Inner Peace In The Remembrance of Allah

We’re constantly bombarded with stress in our lives, from our jobs, our marriages, or from pressures of friends and families. Even more now, with the impact of COVID-19 have on the health and economy, there’s more uncertainty to deal with.

All these are factors that create worry in our minds and hearts. So, as Muslims, how can we deal with it, and attain inner peace or peace of mind?

What does the Quran say about inner peace?

In the Qur’an, in surah ar-Ra’d, v28, Allah s.w.t. said:

“Those who believe, and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.”

Meaning, our hearts will be calmed down by remembering Allah. For a better understanding, listen to Ustadh Nouman’s explanation below.

Saying Dhikr As A Remembrance of Allah

So what is the remembrance of Allah? Is it only the dhikr? Or just reciting the Qur’an? or is there more to it?

Finding Inner Peace Throughout Life

Is there a connection between finding faith and finding emotional peace (inner peace) throughout life?

In the Qur’an, in surah ar-An’am, v82, Allah s.w.t. said:

“They who believe and do not mix their belief with injustice – those will have security, and they are [rightly] guided.”

So to have an inner peace that is lasting, a Muslim needs to:

  • have belief in Allah s.w.t and Rasulallah s.a.w
  • do not do injustice to anyone or anything

Inshaallah, I hope you find this article useful, and inshallah, have the inner peace that is lasting…If you’re wondering how to stop overthinking, or have anxiety, sister Dalya Ayoub of Life Matters Academy has written an article about it here.
