just say at night and change the reality the next morning

The words you speak become the house you live in.

Long time back, when I was just a newbie in the world of Internet, I watched a video of a dad making his little daughter say ‘I am beautiful, I am beautiful, I am beautiful…’ in front of a mirror repeatedly.

No doubt! The saying, “The words you speak become the house you live in,” holds great truth. 

The research that’s been done on the use of positive language to change mood, behaviour and physical well-being is abundant. In the past couple of decades, it is emphasised even more in corporate trainings, personality build-up programs and what not.

I have seen friends in college saying to themselves ‘All is Well, All is Well…’ in tensed situations. I have read articles upon articles emphasising great deal on the habit of saying aloud all good things they did or they had the whole day.

Wallaahi! It’s True.
Our words shape our reality. And, that’s what I find so profound in the Prophetic words that are taught to us to say, no occasion is left, no need is missed, but we are taught the right words in them to utter. And, I bet, you will fall head over heels (just like I did) for these invocations; just try to learn them.

Just take the simplest example from a dua that we made every night before sleeping…

الْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي أَطْعَمَنَا وَسَقَانَا، وَكَفَانَا، وَآوَانَا، فَكَمْ مِمَّنْ لَا كَافِيَ لَهُ وَلَا مُؤْويَ
Praise is to Allah Who has provided us with food and with drink, sufficed us and gave us an abode for how many are there with no provision and no home.

SubhanAllaah!
If we believe that just replacing ‘I Can’t’ with ‘I Can’ might show up outside.
If we know that by just repeatedly saying ‘I am beautiful’ ‘I am strong’ can eventually make us believe so.

Why can’t we just trust that saying prescribed invocations in the manner prescribed can reform our world & the hereafter?

Just think about saying this Dua every night by heart…
Every night reminding ourselves that ‘Praise is to Allah Who has provided us with food and with drink, sufficed us and gave us an abode’ not only makes us His grateful servant, it also makes us affirm it again and again that He only is the One Who is providing.

And, think about it too…
Allaah Subhanahu Ta’aala mentions in Qur’an, “If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor] …”

By Allaah, every night this affirmation of His favours upon us makes us grateful.
And, every morning He increases us in favours.

SubhanAllaah!

And, every night when we lay down ourselves on our soft mattress and our head on cosy pillow, the Almighty Wants us to think of, ‘how many are there with no provision and no home’…
And, slowly by slowly, we become more concerned about those in need.
And, bit by bit, we stop comparing ourselves from those above us.
And, piece by piece, our inner and the outer, is rectified.

If you are not convinced enough, wait for another post, in sha Allaah; I will explain you in terms of Neuroscience, how words change the reality.

For me, I am convinced.
Prophetic Words are enough for me. (Ok…going to sleep now)

Good Night
Sweet Dream
