Quran Gem: Flee to Allah

When Allah speaks about our pursuit of worldly matters, He uses the term, فَامْشُوا / “Walk”
{Surah Al Mulk 67: Verse 15}

When speaking about our pursuit of Salaah, Allah uses the
term, فَاسْعَوْا / “Proceed”
{Surah Al Jumu’ah 62: Verse 9}

When speaking about our pursuit of Paradise, He uses the
term, سَابِقُوا / “Race!”
{Surah Al Hadid 57: Verse 21}

But, when speaking about our pursuit of Him, Allah uses the term, فَفِرُّوا / “Flee!”
{Surah Adh Dhariyat 51: Verse 50}

Not every ambition in life deserves the same amount of effort.

With the above said, consider your own life, your own aspirations and what you invest most time in.

Is the above an accurate reflection of us?

Or have we flipped this Qur’anic standard upside down, where we ‘walk’ towards Allah, but ‘flee’ towards everything other than Him?

Let your slogan in life be the words of Prophet Musa عليه السلام who said,
وَعَجِلْتُ إِلَيْكَ رَبِّ لِتَرْضَى

” .. and I *rush* to You, my Lord, so that You be pleased.”
{Surah At Taha 20: Verse 84}

Ya Allah help us prioritize our affairs in a way that is pleasing to you – ameen ya rabbi.
