Pearl of Wisdom

'Poor man! Every day he is given three trials whereof he does not even take lesson from a single one. If he contemplated and drew a lesson thereof, these trials and this world would cease to be of importance to him. The first trial is the very day which is deducted from his life if it was a loss in his wealth that befell him, he would fall into great distress, even though the dirham [i.e. money] can always be substituted but the days of his life will never again return to him. The second trial is the way in which he goes to great lengths to procure his sustenance, when he will have to account for it all if acquired by lawful means, and he will be punished for it all if acquired by unlawful means. The third trial is the greatest: every day that draws to an end has brought him a step closer to the Hereafter whether to Paradise or Hellfire, he does not know!'

Question : #564 Category: Dua / Supplications
Subject: Asma Allah
Question: I read in a 99 Names of Allah book that if you have a task to complete but are unsure about its feasibility, you should read the name of Allah - Ya badeeu before falling asleep and you will receive guidance from Allah in a dream. I have done this, with Wudhu and facing towards Qiblah when sleeping, but it has not worked. What should I do?
Answer: Salam Alaykum

Doing such prayers and actions are good but not a condition in getting guidance.
If you want to get guidance from Allah we must go to the Representatives of God which is the Prophet and Imams. During the occultation of Imam Zaman we go to the Maraja or Islamic Scholars who are certified by the Hawza or Islamic Seminaries in either Qom or Najaf and ask those who have studied there to give us Guidance in our daily or personal affairs.

Wasalam
