In 2015 I got very sick, there seemed no way coming out of it until one day my big brother came to me and put earphones in my ears while I was lying on bed trying to understand, trying to focus, trying to know what was happening to me, I was unable to get out of it and then I started listening to this and things started to get better, I headed towards the right direction within days, I was not able to decide what to do before listening to this:

(Calamity > Guidance , Charity > Success)

 

No calamity befalleth save by Allah's leave. And whosoever believeth in Allah, He guideth his heart. And Allah is Knower of all things. (64:11)

 

So keep your duty to Allah as best ye can, and listen, and obey, and spend; that is better for your souls. And who so is saved from his own greed, such are the successful.(64:16)

Fingerprints:

 

Yes, We are Able to put together in perfect order the tips of his fingers. (75:04)

 

On that Day man will be informed of what he sent forward and what he left behind (75:13)

 

Rather, man, against himself, will be a witness (75:14)

 

Even if he presents his excuses. (75:15)

I find the letters so beautiful. Is it Arabic? The letters are actually wonderful. Like art. I wish I could write in arabic but I can write only my name :-)

And indeed, it is [mentioned] in the scriptures of former peoples. (26:196)

 

Last Messenger (SAW) did not know how to read and write.

 

Move not your tongue with it, (O Muhammad), to hasten with recitation of the Qur'an. (75:16)

It is for Us to collect it and to give you (O Muhammad) the ability to recite it (the Quran) (75:17)

So when We have recited it, then follow its recitation. (75:18)

Then it is for Us (Allah) to make it clear to you (75:19)

Do you have any Rumi? I think he studied Islamic mysticism called Sufism.

 

This isn't my faith, I am Jewish. but I love reading quotes from Rumi. Once of my faviroutes was "Knocking at a door, it opens, I was knocking from inside!" Great stuff.

To tell you the truth I am pretty down, I find philosophy very hard to understand, but when I read the Quran's translation I find it easy.

Where things are not that easy and I don't know the background of the verses I read the Tafsir and it becomes easy.

Tafsir goes through the Quran in the light of Sayings of the Prophet(SAW) in accordance with Quran's command "Obey Allah and Obey the Messenger".

Arabic is very accurate, I have to study more about it but its grammar is unlike any other language, for example the "they" in Arabic is different for masculine, it is different for the feminine and it is different where both are present.

 

And yes you don't have to go find the word "Allah", it is there written on our hand, all 5 fingers together read Allah.

As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears. ~ Rumi :D Sorry i had to add this one to the collection. Let me know if it is innappropriate, I don't know the compatibility of Sufi's, and Sufism in Islam but i have respect for this scholar.

@Ryder Rumi is always fascinating :)

 

And this is why I listen to / read the Quran, I believe it keeps me going on, Ma-Sha-Allah.

While listening to the music I feel good, but later I feel drained, this is not the case with the Quran.

 

We send down the Quran as a healing and mercy for the believers (17:82)

This is where most of us have small hearts including myself :

 

"By no means shall you attain righteousness unless you give freely of that which you love, and whatever you give, Allah knows it well" [3:92]

Charity (Sadaqah) explained by the Prophet (SAW) :

 

The Prophet (SAW) said, "Every Muslim has to give in charity."

The people asked, "O Allah's Prophet! If someone has nothing to give, what will he do?"

He said, "He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns)."

The people further asked, "If he cannot find even that?"

He replied, "He should help the needy who appeal for help."

Then the people asked, "If he cannot do that?"

He replied, "Then he should perform good deeds and keep away from evil deeds and this will be regarded as charitable deeds."

 

(Sahih al-Bukhari 1445, Book 24, Hadith 48)

Ather, it would be most appropriate to the discussion on this site if you would talk more specifically about how your faith has impacted your life, and especially your withdrawal experience.

What related topic, do you mean your introduction? 

 

Are you opposed to discussing your faith here in this topic, along with the many religious quotes you have posted?

 

I know that this thread was created for you, and we're open to discussions of faith. Your frequent postings without discussion or asking about others' experiences are bordering on the following.

Ather, you are a kind person, you have been generous with your encouragement and prayers for others. Thank you for that.

 

Please be aware people follow many faiths on this site and some follow none. We don't require people to disclose their faith. To avoid offense, we generally discuss religion only in the Finding Meaning forum.

 

This is an interesting topic, please add to it. Thank you.

@Martina23 Did you find the H in Arabic, I am sorry sometimes my replies may sound rude but believe me when I'm down I just don't write much :) 

 

@SkyBlue I am open to discuss my faith Islam anytime Bro, including the Verses I have posted, they are very clear by the way.

 

@Altostrata Thank you for your kindness, again ! 

I have a question shall I share a Sign that I got some time back, it is very powerful, 1 in 10 million to be exact, I got it when I was asking for a Sign, day in and day out in my prayers, I never thought a man like me (very sinful) can get it. The accuracy in it is phenomenal, some day when I have the courage to, I'll share, if God wills.

Chapter 6 Al-Anaam: 

 

4. And no sign comes to them from the signs of their Lord except that they turn away therefrom.

7. And even if We had sent down to you, [O Muhammad], a written scripture on a page and they touched it with their hands, the disbelievers would say, "This is not but obvious magic."

8. And they say, "Why was there not sent down to him an angel?" But if We had sent down an angel, the matter would have been decided; then they would not be reprieved

9. And if We had made him [i.e., the messenger] an angel, We would have made him [appear as] a man, and We would have covered them with that in which they cover themselves [i.e., confusion and doubt].

Another moderator, SkyBlue, has already posted about your lack of discussion about the effect your faith is having on your life and about how it helps you through your journey of getting off psychiatric drugs.

 

This forum is entitled "Finding Meaning".  Quoting surah/s from the Quran without any discussion by you about how you specifically find the quote helpful related to your own life and/or how it helps you with your tapering/withdrawal experience is not providing anything for members to discuss.

As I read it, Ather is quoting verses he's found meaningful in his life.

 

Ather, we'd like to know more about what these things mean to you. Your contributions are welcome.

@Altostrata As I have said earlier there is nothing much to discuss, I try to explain, English is not my first language by the way:

 

Take the Last Verse for example, the words are:

"Remember Me and I will Remember You" 

I start talking to my Creator, 

And if I can't (because if i'm not feeling well and it is hard to make a connection)

I start reciting Almighty's 99 names

Or if it is time for Prayers I go out to the Masjid (Mosque as you people call it) and pray in Congregation, 

Instant change of mood :)

very much, sometimes more than soothing :) 

 

That day I was trying to understand what Almighty was saying to me in the Quran.

Reading the translation that was passing by...... 

You know the mental state of a patient very well.....

And then this Sign (Verse) hit me really very hard, specially at a time when I was thinking "Is there anybody who understands my condition?"

 

50:16 

"And indeed We already created man, and We know whatever his self whispers within him, and We are nearer to him than the jugular vein."

 

Goosebumps followed by comfort, specially when you think of the Might of your Creator....... woh you don't have words to explain !!

 

And then when it is told again and again to be patient, take patience, repeated so many times, just like our parents keep repeating things again and again so we make them a part of our self, Patience is a thing repeated again and again in the Quran.

 

And yes I also want to tell you a very important thing about Quran, there is not a single word less and there is not a single word in excess, every word, even every "letter" is precisely, accurately, put at a place it should be, Mathematically too.

 

One day I will try to share something that I have been blessed with, it is a Sign so powerful I don't feel the courage to share, given to me in my hand, and it is very deep, new things keep coming out of it.

 

It has made my faith strong, strong to a degree that I do not have to See God to believe in Him, I have already seen His work, it is Precise.

 

After that Sign, I now know that Nothing, absolutely nothing happens without a reason, not even a microscopic particle moves without a reason.

 

Our intentions matter a lot !

I like this very much.

we used to joke that when we pray for patience, we are given a trying situation in which to learn that patience.

 

I think WD/recovery sure seems like one of those very trying situations that help teach us patience- and acceptance too.

Woah I didn't know this was even a thing on this site lol. @Ather I'm going through a very tough time right now keep the quotes coming. I've got a friend of mine sending me duaas and quotes all day everyday and they help so much.

Regarding patience. The most important aspect of faith right now especially when going through waves and windows.

“What has reached you was never meant to miss you, and what has missed you was never meant to reach you.” – Prophet Muhammad

I'm not saying everything is perfect because I'm a Muslim and I have faith and so on, I still suffer horrible waves just like everyone else here but having faith and belief is central to this and is sometimes the only thing that pulls us through.
