This is one of the series of posts where we share some powerful gems from our esteemed speakers at the retreat so people who didn't attend can also benefit Insha Allah and our beloved friends who did can have a quick refresher :) - we had our first Afterglow Light the Soul Retreat from June 8 to 10, 2018 in Karachi, you can find out more about this by checking our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts by the handle @afterglowglobal.
Our super hilarious and super duper impactful speaker Raja Zia ul Haq was a supreme pleasure to have at the retreat. He mentioned that we should look at our heart as having two wings one of love and one of fear. So we must not be so scared of Allah that it hampers our actions and we are consumed by our fear but then we also shouldn't only think of Allahs mercy so entirely that we think no matter what we do it would all be forgiven. It's a very very fine line and we all have the potential to balance it. While a lot of people focus on fear a lot when preaching and it repulses people, but we should also be aware that we shouldn't over do the fact that Allah is so forgiving that people stop making that extra effort. We all know the balance and we can all Insha Allah get there. May Allah make us people of success in this life and hereafter.
Jazak Allah khair @rajaziaulhaq
