A prayer needed for this day and time

وَٱلَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَٰجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّٰتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَٱجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

And those who say: "Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the Muttaqun" (pious - see V. 2:2 and the footnote of V. 3:164)."

The home is where so much drama can come. There is a request in this ayah, one that is needed today.  May Allah help me learn this dua. Wives and children who cause us no grief. In a greater sense spouses. However it is the second half of the dua that is an action item. There is a lot unsaid in the ayah, but known to those who have knowledge.  I claim no such knowledge. However you must ask what does it take to be a leader of the Muttaqun? In this case your family. For if your family was Muttaqun then they would be a cooling to your eyes naturally.

What does it take to be a leader of the Muttaqun? You must certainly start by being one yourself, and don't those things that make you strong in it. You can't give what you ain't got and if it doesn't reflect from you then it is not there.

Nothing comes over night, perfect today.
