Law of Attraction In The Bible and In Islam – Different Worldviews
One reason why some people are hesitant to learn about the law of attraction is that they are concerned it interferes with their religious beliefs. But the law of attraction and the power of the universe are not a religion. Believing in the law of attraction and using it to improve your life can be part of your religion without any conflicts.
The law of attraction has a foundation within the Bible and Islam beliefs. Understanding how these belief systems can work together will give you confidence that you’ve found a useful mechanism for staying true to who you are while achieving your dreams and attracting the outcomes you want to your life.
Learn more about the different worldviews and religions that lay a foundation for engaging the law of attraction.
Law of Attraction and the Bible
At first glance, many people see the law of attraction as focused on material wealth and prosperity. While that might be what the method is most widely used for, the law of attraction is not all about material prosperity.
You might be working to attract improved faith, charity, perseverance and love in your life – all of which can improve your relationship with God and the good works you do in His name.
Following the Bible and experiencing the benefits of the law of attraction do not have to be two different belief systems. The Bible’s writings have many verses that align with the law of attraction and demonstrate how these two belief systems can go hand-in-hand and overlap in practical ways.
Law of Attraction in the Bible
The law of attraction concepts have a firm foundation in the teachings of Jesus. While he did not use the terms directly, some of the things he taught aligned clearly with the law of attraction methodology. We’ll outline some verses from the Bible that show the relationship between the law of attraction and the Bible.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” – Romans 12:2
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” – Proverbs 23:7
“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” – Luke 17:21
“And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” – Matthew 21:22
“Then he touched their eyes and said, ‘According to your faith let it be done to you’”
– Matthew 9:29
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7
“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” – Mark 9:23
“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” – Habakkuk 2:3
Additionally, the Bible clearly states that we will reap what we sow (Galatians 6:7). Therefore, our actions will have consequences. The more good that we do, the more good that we will experience in our lives.
Law of Attraction in Islam
Those whose religious beliefs come from Islam enter into a personal journey that takes them on the path to growth and spiritual development. Along this path, they find awakening to the divine presence of God.
The foundation for Islam comes from the Prophet Muhammad who described the personal path as at-tariqah and tazkiyah, which means purification of the self in Arabic. This purification of self is a way or path where one surrenders themselves. During that surrender, the person can be purified from negativity, ego, anger and fear.
As the individual is purified of themselves, they begin to experience true happiness through the goodness and grace of life. And as they surrender themselves, they become friends of God or Awliya.
Those who are in a state of Awliya have surrendered to the divine will and are no longer subject to fear or grief.
Where Islam and the Law of Attraction Meet
While you probably already knew all of this about Islam, it’s helpful to lay a foundation for how the law of attraction falls in line with this religion.
In Islam, the path to spiritual growth is focused on personal responsibility. The Qur’an states that every soul faces what it has sent forth. That means that your actions have consequences. To manage your experiences, you must learn discipline over your thoughts and emotions because they serve as a foundation for the actions that you will take.
That doesn’t mean that the religion views God as vengeful. In fact, it’s quite contrary to that. God is good, compassionate, loving and generous. But to get those good things, you must also do good things. You must engage the world with faith and confidence that you’ll experience success and prosperity.
Expecting prosperity and goodness demonstrates true faith and will leave you a happier, more confident individual. And with this mindset that goodness will come to you, you’ll attract those circumstances.
In contrast, if you were to have an attitude of disbelief and fear, you’re far more likely to encounter negative events and a more difficult life. The more you struggle against the goodness that the world has to offer you, the more challenging life will be.
To control your external circumstances, you must first care for your mental and spiritual state. That’s the best way to know and believe that good will come to you.
The Law of Attraction Aligns with Islam
Therefore, the law of attraction and Islam align well. You can practice both without interference or conflicts. And ultimately the state of your mind and emotions will dictate how well you’re practicing both of these things.
Learning how to create a healthy, positive mindset is what the law of attraction is all about. And it also focuses on doing good in the world so that the goodwill comes back to you in other ways. As you do this, you’ll also be on the path to aligning your life with God as you surrender yourself.
