The 5 Practical Ways to Cultivate Peace & Tranquility
In this episode we focus on five practical ways to cultivate this sense of peace and tranquillity.
- The Power of Belief
The first step towards achieving inner peace is to believe in Allah (swt), the Creator of the Heavens and Earth.
The Quran is filled with solutions to our daily challenges.
The most effective solutions is found in the Quran in Surah Ar-Ra’d verse 28, where Allah (swt) says,
الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ ۗ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ
Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah. Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.”
“Those who believe.”
Here Allah (swt) is talking about the prerequisite we must have to attain this inner peace.
The absolute essential thing you must have before you can achieve this sense of ultimate peace and tranquillity is Emaan; to believe in Allah (swt).
Recognising Allah’s power and ability to solve any problem instils confidence and tranquillity within us.
When you put your Tawakkul; your reliance on Allah for everything, then you won’t feel as challenged.
You won’t feel that any problem is too big, too extreme, too unbearable for you to handle.
If your problems are under the control of Allah, then you will be assured that no matter what, you’re going to get through this on top.
We live in a world with many complex issues and problems. However, when you understand who your Creator is, when you truly appreciate and know who Allah is, you can be certain you’ll be fine.
This is Dhikr of Allah!
To know your Creator is not just sitting and making Tasbeeh, and verbalising the praise.
Tasbeeh is the remembrance of Allah, but to know and really appreciate who your Creator is. To know the names and attributes of Allah in the truest sense, is to know that no problem or challenge in this world is beyond the ability of Allah to solve.
Whether that’s medical, financial, or relationship problems, whatever that may be.
- Embrace Prayer as Connection
Dhikr of Allah is the remembrance of Allah and connecting to him. And one of the best ways to do this is through the five daily prayers.
Prepare yourself mentally. Make Wudu (ablution), thinking about Allah, and consciously connecting to Allah.
Taking a few moments before each prayer to mentally prepare and connect with Allah enhances the impact of the Salah, and gives you a peaceful state of mind throughout the day.
- Protect Yourself from Negative News
The constant barrage of negative information from news sources and social media can weigh heavily on our minds. What I would suggest is to go on a “News Fast.”
A “News Fast” limits your exposure to negative news and it can help prevent the overwhelming feeling of stress caused by the 24-hour news cycle and cult.
I call it a news cult because a cult is addictive and it’s something which shapes your thinking.
- Morning Routine for Success
The way you start your day has a huge impact on your mindset. Avoiding the internet and mobile devices for the first two hours of the day allows you to set the tone for a positive and peaceful day.
If you invest in your mental and spiritual well-being early in the morning, you will create a foundation for a peaceful day ahead.
Dedicate this time to contemplation, reading the Quran, making Dhikr (remembrance of Allah), or journaling.
Spending even 10 minutes a day, first thing in the morning, reading the Quran, in a language that you understand and contemplating how this applies to your life, will set you up for the most positive day ahead.
It’s like having breakfast. The breakfast of the mind is the Dhikr of Allah.
- Nighttime Ritual for Peace
The remembrance of Allah in your evening routines is as equally important.
The Witr Salah, performed at the end of the night is direct connection to Allah and a way to wind down before sleep.
Ending your day with the remembrance of Allah allows your mind to marinate in positivity and prepares you for a peaceful and tranquil sleep.
By practising these five steps you create a foundation of inner peace and tranquillity. As a result, this empowers you to live a peaceful life inshAllah
