15 Motivational Verses from the Quran

Below are 15 motivational verses from the Quran for when we need it, and of course we need it all the time in our lives.

We all need a little motivation from time to time, because life can sometimes bring happiness as well as sorrows. Allah (swt) who has created us knows our nature very well. It is why you’ll find many verses in the Quran that deal with our natural inclinations and bring us peace when it’s most needed.

Even our beloved Prophet (saw) needed motivation at times, I’ll list a few motivational verses from the Quran so that we can ponder over it and bring the contentment back in our hearts and minds.

It is a fact that the remembrance of Allah brings peace in the heart. It is better to ponder over the verses to bring us even closer to Allah (swt). You can look up tafseer books to see in which context the verses were revealed to get a better understanding.

I’ve carefully selected a few verses here, so if you are feeling sad, lonely or are experiencing some difficult times I hope these verses will help you lift yourself.

    Beautiful quotes, I was interested in finding some quotes from the Holy Book of Islam in midst of the outrageous Islamophobia here in the US. Islam is peace and love.

    “God does not forbid you from being good to those who have not fought you in the religion or driven you from your homes, or from being just towards them. God loves those who are just.” (Surat al-Mumtahana, 8)

    salam alaikom,
    greetings in the name Allah (SWT) , the recent development related to our faith, requires all of us brothers and sisters to be steadfast and patient, plenty are coming in the name of the one who holds our souls in his hands, Allah (SWT) the lord of the Al amin, commanded us through his prophet (SWS) that we must unite as one body with one belief and help each other that none among us go astray. But what is happening now is that, we in our midst are pretenders ( munafiq) using ISLAM to uphold the objective of our enemies, we must not let this happen, this is not what ISLAM stands for, we are commanded to eliminate such act, we must not be divided, we now of all moment of this world, UNITE AS ONE BELIEF, no sunni, no shia,, no division… no nationality,,, we must consolidate our forces in one place.. in a place where ISLAM will exist separate from other…this is a CALL TO FAITH AND LOVE FOR ALLAH (SWT).
