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.
