“And those who have responded to their Lord and established prayer and whose affair is determined by consultation among themselves, and from what We have provided them, they spend.” (Holy Quran 42:38)
“Thus it is due to mercy from God that you deal with them gently, and had you been rough, hard-hearted, they would certainly have dispersed from around you; pardon them therefore and ask pardon for them, and take counsel with them in the affair; so when you have decided, then place your trust in God; surely God loves those who trust.” (Holy Quran 3:159)
These beautiful verses teach us that consultation, i.e. gathering the opinions of others for problems/issues you are facing, is a very good thing! The next time you are feeling uncertain or confused about a situation, why don’t you ask for other people’s insights? This is encouraged in the Quran! After all, you don’t have to actually follow what people suggest, but it certainly helps to get another opinion!
