Ayaat from the Quran that uplift me when I’m down [Thread]

What really helps me sleep at night when I don’t feel well is reciting surah kafirun before sleeping. Protection from shirk gives me peace of mind, as it should for a muslim. AlhamdulilLah
Another thing that gave me peace of mind and ease at heart was reciting these 3 chapters of the Quran. The sunnah is beautiful wAllahi.
Suratul Baqarah in general but this verse in particular because it’s a reminder that whatever we go through, it’s not more than what we can bear and that patience and faith in Allah will give us victory, bi idhnilLah
Suratul Hadid in general but these 2 verses in particular because it reminds me of the greatness of Allah and that Allah is still the nearest to us. Brings my attention to Allah’s unlimited abilities and that goodness can only be sought from the aide of Allah. Allahu Akbar
Suratul Insan but specifically this verse because it reminds me of the bounty that Allah has promised us if we’re obedient. Gives me the motivation to keep going, alhamdulilLah
Suratuz Zumar but this verse especially because the verse reminds us that Allah forgives all our sins as long as we are repentant. Allahu Akbar
Suratur Rahman has recently helped me the most, especially these 3 verses. SubhanAllah, it reminds you of how negligent we are. may Allah forgive us and remove the diseases of our hearts. ameen
Suratush Sharh, especially these 2 verses. Constant reminder that we’ll find ease eventually if not right away.
Wake up call, whatever hardship we face is nothing compared to the hereafter if we don’t fix up. Surprisingly, that’s a motivation when I’m down, it might not be the same for everyone else though. wAllahu A’lam https://t.co/pkmzdmH0Cu
Please feel free to add your own ayaat to this thread. The Quran is the best remedy for us so let’s rely upon it as much as possible, as opposed to worldly (limited) solutions. barakAllahu feekum

Rig Ved 1.36.7

To do a Namaskaar or bow before someone means that you are humble or without pride and ego. This means that we politely bow before you since you are better than me. Pranipaat(प्राणीपात) also means the same that we respect you without any vanity.

Surrendering False pride is Namaskaar. Even in devotion or bhakti we say the same thing. We want to convey to Ishwar that we have nothing to offer but we leave all our pride and offer you ourselves without any pride in our body. You destroy all our evil karma.

We bow before you so that you assimilate us and make us that capable. Destruction of our evils and surrender is Namaskaar. Therefore we pray same thing before and after any big rituals.

MDZS is laden with buddhist references. As a South Asian person, and history buff, it is so interesting to see how Buddhism, which originated from India, migrated, flourished & changed in the context of China. Here's some research (🙏🏼 @starkjeon for CN insight + citations)

1. LWJ’s sword Bichen ‘is likely an abbreviation for the term 躲避红尘 (duǒ bì hóng chén), which can be translated as such: 躲避: shunning or hiding away from 红尘 (worldly affairs; which is a buddhist teaching.) (
https://t.co/zF65W3roJe) (abbrev. TWX)

2. Sandu (三 毒), Jiang Cheng’s sword, refers to the three poisons (triviṣa) in Buddhism; desire (kāma-taṇhā), delusion (bhava-taṇhā) and hatred (vibhava-taṇhā).

These 3 poisons represent the roots of craving (tanha) and are the cause of Dukkha (suffering, pain) and thus result in rebirth.

Interesting that MXTX used this name for one of the characters who suffers, arguably, the worst of these three emotions.

3. The Qian kun purse “乾坤袋 (qián kūn dài) – can be called “Heaven and Earth” Pouch. In Buddhism, Maitreya (मैत्रेय) owns this to store items. It was believed that there was a mythical space inside the bag that could absorb the world.” (TWX)

Vedic Education System delivered outstanding results.  These were an outcome of the context in which it functioned.  Understanding them is critical in the revival of such a system in modern times. 
The Shanthi Mantra spells out the context of the Vedic Education System.


It says:

ॐ सह नाववतु ।
सह नौ भुनक्तु ।
सह वीर्यं करवावहै ।
तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु मा विद्विषावहै ।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

“Aum. May we both (the guru and disciples) together be protected. May we both be nourished and enriched. May we both bring our hands together and work

with great energy, strength and enthusiasm from the space of powerfulness. May our study and learning together illuminate both with a sharp, absolute light of higher intelligence. So be it.”

The students started the recitation of the Vedic hymns in early hours of morning.


The chanting of Mantras had been evolved into the form of a fine art. Special attention was paid to the correct pronunciation of words, Pada or even letters. The Vedic knowledge was imparted by the Guru or the teacher to the pupil through regulated and prescribed pronunciation,
