Yasmin Mogahed’s book, Reclaim Your Heart, was written to free your heart from slavery and give you a positive perception towards hardships. The book reveals the importance of placing our hope in God and shows us how to react when we fall.
It’s an inspiring easy-to-read book. I learned several things from the book that made me wiser.
Here are 5 remarkable lessons I learned from Yasmin Mogahed’s book.
- Pain Warns Us That Something is Wrong
According to Yasmin, pain warns us that something is wrong and we need to make changes in our lives. For example, heart-breaks tell us that we are too attached to a particular person, and we need to let go of him/her.
- The importance of Hardships
We must embrace hardships because they purify our souls and move us closer to God. Moreover, they remind us of the Greatness of God, and how small we are, compared to his greatness. Hardships also awaken us from our recklessness and show us where we are heading to.
- Life is a Test
‘The present world is an illusory pleasure: you are sure to be tested through your possessions and persons’ – Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart
We must perceive life as a test that God uses to bring us closer to Him because this perception enables us to realize that we can learn from everything.
- The Importance of Fasting
Yasmin teaches that fasting enables us to control our soul’s desires because it makes us learn to restrain our physical desires. By learning to avoid eating while no one is watching, fasting trains us to avoid indulging in immoral activities when people aren’t watching.
- The Definition of Spiritual Awakening
Spiritual awakening occurs when you realize that you had a wrong perception of the world. Awakening enables you to have a true and beautiful life as it makes you realize that you can do and have anything you want.
