We all need a little positivity in our lives, especially during trying times. And what better way to achieve that than by reflecting on Allah’s words? These faith-based affirmations from the Quran will bring positivity to your life and remind you of His love and mercy.
1. Affirmation: Allah Knows and Wants the Best for You
“And it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.” (AI-Baqarah, 2:216)
This is a great affirmation to use at the start of your day, during difficult times, or when you are feeling down. The main point here is that Allah has already planned out a path for you that will bring happiness and success in your life. You just have to be patient and wait for it all to unfold.
2. Affirmation: I Am Grateful
“If you are grateful, I would certainly give you more; and if you are ungrateful, My chastisement is truly severe.” (14:7)
The Qur’an teaches us to be grateful for everything in life. It is easy to be grateful for the good things that happen to us, but what about all the bad ones? Gratitude helps us realize that even these experiences have a purpose and that Allah has given us everything we need. By being grateful for our blessings and thanking Him for them, we can start seeing the positive in our lives instead of focusing on what’s not going well.
3. Affirmation: You Are Not Alone
[Allah] said, “Fear not. Indeed, I am with you both; I hear and I see. (20:46)
You are not alone. Whether you’re facing a challenge or feeling lost, your situation is one that many people find themselves in. Know that someone somewhere has gone through what you are going through right now; there may even be communities or support groups you can attend for whatever it is you’re experiencing. It’s natural to feel alone when facing adversity, but this doesn’t have to be the case! Find comfort in knowing that there are other individuals going through similar struggles and hardships as yourself — and they’re just as capable of overcoming them as well! Above all, know that you have Allah.
4. Affirmation: Be Forgiving and Be Forgiven
“We have not created the heavens and the earth and everything in between except for a purpose. And the Hour is certain to come, so forgive graciously.” (Quran 15:85)
It’s a simple but powerful statement that teaches us about forgiveness and how important it is in our lives. The more we forgive, the more positive energy we release into our own lives as well as others around us. When we hold on to negative emotions such as anger or resentment towards someone else, it can weigh us down emotionally and physically over time. Forgiveness gives us a way out of this cycle by allowing us to move forward without carrying any negative baggage with us.
