A Way Out of Confusion

    قَالَ رَسُولُ الله {عَليهِ السَّلامْ}:

    يَا عَلِيُّ! مَا حَارَ مَنِ أسْتخارَ ولاَ نَدِم مَنِ اسْتَثارَ.

The Prophet of Islam(‘s) said, "O' 'Ali! Whosoever asks the best (from Allah), will never be confused, and whosoever asks (others) for advice will never be regretful.” 3

The above hadith was a special piece of advice from the Prophet of Islam (‘s) to Amir al‑Mu'minin `Ali ibn Abi Talib (‘as), during one of his travels to Yemen to spread the faith of Islam.

In such a dangerous mission, the most important thing that one could have asked for is a strong heart, confidence, and conviction.

Asking the best from Allah , is the method to attain these spiritual traits and characteristics.
