The DROP behind the closed door


W78

It was narrated from Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri that the Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alyhi wasallam) said:

“There is no Muslim who calls upon Allaah with words in which there is no sin or severing of family ties but Allaah will give him one of three things:
✔either He will answer his prayer soon, or
✔He will store it up for him in the Hereafter, or
He will remove something bad from him that is equivalent to what he is asking for.”

They said, “Then we should make a great amount of du’aa’.” He said, “Allaah is greater.”

(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3573; classed as saheeh by al-Tirmidhi and others)

When you are comforted by His remembrance..


Allah loves u

Hope so…ya Rabb! :’)

“Those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism), and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allâh, Verily, in the remembrance of Allâh do hearts find rest.” (Al Qur’an 13:28)

Understanding Rida (contentment) with Qadr


contentment

‘Rida is recommended whereas Sabr is obligatory, from Sabr ensues a great deal of good. The difference between Rida and Sabr is that Sabr is to restrain one’s soul from feeling and displaying displeasure or malcontent coupled with sensing the pain of what has befallen him and the desire to see it removed; Rida is the expansion of the heart to what has befallen it, its total acceptance of the divine decree and its not desiring to see it removed. Even though one may feel pain, Rida lessens that pain because of the certainty (yaqeen) and cognizance (ma’rifah) that has taken root in the heart. As the state of Rida strengthens it is even possible that the person no longer feels the pain at all.’

– Ibn Rajab (R) in Jami’ al-’Ulum wa-l-Hikam [1/239]

 

The Strength of Yaqeen in Allah -subhanahu wa ta’ala


قَالَ يَـٰمَرۡيَمُ أَنَّىٰ لَكِ هَـٰذَا‌ۖ
قَالَتۡ هُوَ مِنۡ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَرۡزُقُ مَن يَشَآءُ

He said: “O Maryam! From where have you got this?” She said, “This is from Allâh.” Verily, Allâh provides sustenance to whom He wills, without limit.” “At that moment (there and then/immediately), Zakariyâ invoked his Lord…”[Surat Ale Imraan, 3:first part of ayah 38]

When Zakariyya Alayhissalam saw that Maryam Alayhissalam got Rizq from Allah, he immediately made duaa to Allah, having the Yaqeen that if Allah could provide for her from Ghayb (unseen means) then He [subhanahu wa ta’ala] could also provide for him what he sought, despite he being of old age (120+ years) and his wife being barren (88+ years).

When most people see others with what they don’t have, they either start pitying themselves or they become jealous.

What should our attitude be?

What is the attitude of a Prophet?

هُنَالِكَ دَعَا زَكَرِيَّا رَبَّهُۥ ۖ قَالَ رَبِّ هَبْ لِى مِن لَّدُنكَ ذُرِّيَّةًۭ طَيِّبَةً ۖ إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ ٱلدُّعَآءِ ….

✦”At that moment(there and then/immediately), Zakariyâ called upon his Lord, saying, ‘My Lord, grant me from Yourself a good offspring. Indeed, You are the Hearer of supplication.’ So the angels called him while he was standing in prayer in the chamber, “Indeed, Allah gives you good tidings of John, confirming a word from Allah and [who will be] honorable, abstaining [from women], and a prophet from among the righteous.” He said, “My Lord, how will I have a boy when I have reached old age and my wife is barren?” The angel said, “Such is Allah ; He does what He wills.” ✦ 

[Surat Ale Imraan, 3:38-40]

INDEED WITHOUT DOUBT,

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) gives, grants, blesses according to one’s Yaqeen (certainty) in Him.
