Riding the Guidance Train

Listening to the tafseer of Surah Maryam by Shaykh Jangda on YouTube and I'm absolutely inspired by this ayah he spoke about from the Holy Quran:

"And those who are guided - He increases them in guidance and gives them their righteousness."


[Muhammad 47:17] 

The Shaykh explains that the more we follow the guidance that Allah sends us to us - the more guidance Allah will send to us! Such a simple formula, such powerful effects. This is the "guidance train" as Shaykh amusingly terms it.

So when we ask Allah for help and guidance, we shouldn't just stop there - the journey of seeking guidance isn't the end game - clearly what's important is taking on the guidance we are given. Sometimes it comes to us in ways we don't expect - like a maybe a turn of events forcing us to act in a certain way. Other times it can be some sort of inspiration we are given to take a course of action. Either way it speaks to us being conscious and aware so we can perceive this guidance- then act on it- and thereby receive even more guidance.

Hoping to ride the guidance train too Insha Allah,
