There is no Altering the Creation of God
All prophets adopted this same attitude, because “there is no altering the creation of God” [al-Rum 30:30]. Allah (SWT) is the original creator of the heavens, the earth and all those who live in it; it is not for any human to attempt to change the creation.
To adopt the same values of the prophets means adopting the culture of patience and avoiding confrontation where possible. There is beauty in all of Allah’s (SWT) creations and we must see the positive more than the negative.
Finding a way through Patience within Islam
We can adopt the teachings of the Holy Qur’an into our way of life in many ways, guiding us now and into the hereafter. A physical journey, whether you are walking, driving or otherwise, is rarely a straight line from point A to B, with many twists and turns required for one reason or another.
Think about this in terms of personal and professional development. There will always be hardships along the way and it is how we deal with these setbacks, displaying patience, which ensures we can see a difficult situation from all angles and gain experience for the future. Confrontation rarely gets you anywhere and conflict, more often than not, closes one door without necessarily opening another – this helps no one.
The Holy Qur’an teaches us to control our anger as otherwise, it will become a distraction. We should adopt a positive mentality and, in the event of disagreement or provocation, we should remember the power of forgiveness and reconciliation.
