The secret to serenity in the Holy Quran

The silence can be jarring for those who are broken, who are desperate to hear words of comfort from Allah.

True believers, however, should know that they only have to open the Quran to find what they seek - serenity and calm amidst the chaos of the world.

Here are three verses of the Holy Quran to soothe sad souls and revive lost hope:

Surah Baqarah: 155-156

وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُم بِشَىْءٍۢ مِّنَ ٱلْخَوْفِ وَٱلْجُوعِ وَنَقْصٍۢ مِّنَ ٱلْأَمْوَٰلِ وَٱلْأَنفُسِ وَٱلثَّمَرَٰتِ ۗ وَبَشِّرِ ٱلصَّـٰبِرِينَ

ٱلَّذِينَ إِذَآ أَصَـٰبَتْهُم مُّصِيبَةٌۭ قَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّآ إِلَيْهِ رَٰجِعُونَ

Meaning: And we will certainly test you with something of fear and famine, loss of wealth and life and fruit, but bringing good omens to the patient, who when misfortune befalls them says: “We truly belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we shall return.

Surah Yusuf: 86-87

قَالَ إِنَّمَآ أَشْكُوا۟ بَثِّى وَحُزْنِىٓ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ وَأَعْلَمُ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ

يَـٰبَنِىَّ ٱذْهَبُوا۟ فَتَحَسَّسُوا۟ مِن يُوسُفَ وَأَخِيهِ وَلَا تَا۟يْـَٔسُوا۟ مِن رَّوْحِ ٱللَّهِ ۖ إِنَّهُۥ لَا يَا۟يْـَٔسُ مِن رَّوْحِ ٱللَّهِ إِلَّا ٱلْقَوْمُ ٱلْكَـٰفِرُونَ

Meaning: He replied, “I do not complain about my sorrow and discomfort except Allah, and I know from Allah what you do not know. My sons, go and inquire about Joseph and his brother and do not despair of Allah’s relief. Indeed, no one is disappointed with Allah’s relief except those who do not believe.”

Surah Anfal: 70

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّبِىُّ قُل لِّمَن فِىٓ أَيْدِيكُم مِّنَ ٱلْأَسْرَىٰٓ إِن يَعْلَمِ ٱللَّهُ فِى قُلُوبِكُمْ خَيْرًا يُؤْتِكُمْ خَيْرًا مِّمَّآ أُخِذَ مِنكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

Meaning: If Allah knows what is good in your heart, He will give you something better than what was taken from you, and He will pardon you; and Allah is Lenient and Merciful.

May Allah have mercy on us and give us the peace of mind, body and soul that we are all looking for.
