Searching for a peaceful life? Meditate in Islamic way
It’s a beautiful life blessed by Allah (God) why aren’t they enjoying it? Because they are very busy in running after money and possessions. They’ve lost the peace they had. Their lives are filled with distraction and problems. Without meditation they will definitely be losers. So Islam paves so many paths to overcome these problems.
One of the many paths and steps to do it;
- Wudhu (the way of cleaning yourself before prayers) – cleanliness is part of Islamic religion; it teaches to be clean and tidy all the time. Before they perform prayers (prostrate) five times a day they are obliged to purify themselves with water. That is called ‘wudhu’ and there is a procedure for it. So how does this help in meditating? Yes it does cleaning yourself helps you to clean your heart as well. When you are sad or depressed when you wash your face with water you’ll definitely feel much better. So think about the Muslims, they do this every five times. So obviously the stress and depression they have been carrying for hours will be washed away. This is one of the ways to meditate in Islamic way.
- The faith- Islamic religion is all about faith. When you have faith in god you can gain anything. So even when you are depressed you can seek the peace from your god alone. Make your heart steady and strong, make it less affectionate toward this world and ask Allah (God) for inner peace. Most of the Muslims use this method of meditation in their daily life. It is usually can be seen among pious people.
- Forgiveness- sinning is human’s nature. But asking forgiveness for it is something you should build up in you. Sinning and loosing inner peace are much related factors. When you sin you lose self control and peace so to find the inner peace and self control you must seek forgiveness from god. This is the way Muslims meditate and gain peace.
- Position- should stay in a position that is comfortable for you. Because unless you feel comfortable you cannot concentrate in meditation.
Islamic methods of meditation is very clearly said though there are even more methods which are prescribed in Islam.
