Making Things Easy

“Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel”

Assalamu Alaikum. Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

Today I would like to discuss on one of the most inspiring and powerful aayaat of the glorious Qur’an: Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel. Allah is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs for us. What an Excellent Guardian and Protector He is!

Who doesn’t need help, care, protection and victory?

Who doesn’t feel weak, over-powered by difficulties, stress and worries?

In their quest for peace and tranquility, some affluent sections of society resort to sleeping pills, drugs and what not.

Poor curse their miseries and desire that they become rich.

They say grass appears greener on the other side!

But strange is the way of a true Muslim!

Here there is no question of the grass getting dry. His side of the grass is always greener. Subhaanallah!

The roots of this amazing grass are strong and deep. They are being continuosly fed with the waters of Imaan.

Willing submission to the Master, the very Controller of all affairs, keeps the grass ever green.

Don’t you find the presence of amazing dew drops on this amazing grass?

The dew drops of Contentment, Hope, Trust, Willingness to submit to the decree of Almighty Lord?

These dew drops in the life a Muslim contain miraculous elements to keep the grass greener even in the most harshest and cruelest of life’s climates!

Read and reflect over this beautiful hadeeth:

Ibn ‘Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: When (Prophet) Ibraheem was thrown into the fire, he said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and, He is the Best Disposer of affairs.” So did Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam), when he was told: “A great army of the pagans had gathered against him, so fear them”. But this (warning) only increased him and the Muslims in Faith and they said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)”. [Al-Bukhari].

When Ibraheem alaihis salam was thrown in the fire by those who thought that they had power over all things, he made a supplication the effect of which made the world sit up and watch in amazement!

Fire getting cool! It could not burn even a hair of Prophet Ibraheem, Peace be upon him!

This is the effect of saying: Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel!

Allah (alone) is Sufficient for us, and what an Excellent Guardian He is! He is the Best Disposar of affairs!

In a seemingly overpowering situation, Prophet Muhammad, sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, and his great companions declared that Allah is Sufficient for Help and Solace and that He is the Best Disposar of affairs for us!

When people said to them: ‘Behold, a host has gathered around you and you should fear them’, it only increased their faith and they answered: ‘Allah is Sufficient for us; and what an excellent Guardian He is!’ (Surah aal Imran: 173)

During the course of his Da’wah, when he encountered rejection from some people, Prophet Muhammad, sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wasallam, was commanded by Allah to say: Hasbiyaallahu laa ilaaha illa huw, ‘alayhi tawakkaltu wa huwa rabbul ‘arshil adheem:

Yet, if they should turn away, then tell them: “Allah is sufficient for me; there is no true god but He. In Him I have put my trust. He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.” (Surah Tawbah: 129)

When his companions got scared of the coming of the Day of Judgement, Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wasallam instructed them to recite: Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel. 

Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah said, “How can I feel at ease when the Angel of the Trumpet, (Israfil) has put his lips to the Trumpet and is waiting for the order to blow it”. He (the Prophet) perceived as if this had shocked his Companions, so he told them to seek comfort through reciting: ‘Hasbunallahu wa Ni’mal-Wakeel [Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)]. (For Arabic Text, read Hadeeth No. 409 here )

In the event of fear and anxiety one should seek the help of Allah and frequently recite this ayah of the glorious Qur’an “Hasbunallahu wa Ni’mal Wakeel” “Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).” (3:173).

If you ask them: “Who created the heavens and the earth?” they will surely answer: “Allah.” Tell them: “What do you think, then, of the deities whom you call upon instead of Allah? If Allah should will that an affliction befall me, will those deities remove the harm inflicted by Him? Or if Allah should will that I receive (His) Mercy, will they be able to withhold His Mercy from me?” Say: “Allah is sufficient for me; those who have to put their trust, let them put their trust in Him. (Surah Az Zumar: 38)

A true Muslim understands very well that Allah alone is the Bestower and Witholder of Mercy, and He alone is the Remover of Harm and Affliction. Reciting Hasbunallahu Wa Nimal Wakeel provides the healing touch that is very much necessary in one’s life.

By putting one’s complete Trust in Allah, by leaving matters unto Him, by seeking only His grace and mercy, by accepting His decree, by submitting to His Will – a Muslim can equip oneself to face the challenges of life.

And this one single verse Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel is a source of all strength, all comfort!

So let us make it a point to recite this morning and evening. Day and night. On and off. Once. Twice. A hundred times. As much as possible.

I end this post with other two inspiring verses from the glorious Qur’an:

“…He who fears Allah, He will find a way out for him, and will provide him sustenance from whence he never even imagined. Whoever puts his trust in Allah, He shall suffice him. Surely Allah brings about what He decrees; Allah has set a measure for everything.” (Surah At-Talaaq: 2-3)

May Allah give us the guidance to follow His path until our last breath. Aameen.

Jazakallah Khayr.

  18. Asalamualakum,
    I am so depressed and came to this page. After reading this, I’ve a question. I am tired of struggling in life and trying to find a marriage partner. So overburdened by agony that I wish I die. Now, do i place trust in Allah and stop searching for spouse and save myself from rejection and humiliation. Trust that if I am meant to get married, Allah (swt) bring him somehow, and now I don’t need to try for it. On the other hand, they say place your trust in Allah but also tie your camel.
    I’m so confused. When I try, all I get is manipulation, rejection, and humiliation. So I think, may be marriage is not written in my destiny, if it is, then Allah will bring him. Any advise?

    Comment by Sister | February 25, 2013 | Reply

    • Wa alaikumus salam.

      I undertand your concern. Marriage is a genuine need of man. And trying to find a partner as per the guidelines of Shariah is an ibadah in itself.
      Have trust in Allah and continue to strive.

      Also, sister you must understand that marriage is a part of life. But if it does not happen then a person should make other things part of his life to keep him happy. For example helping orphans. Indulging in some social work. This will ease the tension and bring some relief, Inshaa’Allah.

      You are feeling like this most probably because you have made it as your priority. Try to divert your attention by being with other people.
      When Allah WILLS, it will happen at the right time. We can’t make something happen early or delay it. I know it is very difficult, sister. It is easy to say than do. But as a brother I request you to try to divert your mind; be around GENUINE friends and family. If certain people are trying to remind you about marriage again and again then ignore them and be with those who understand you. Allah will definitely make things easy for you. Aameen.

      Don’t think about rejection and humiliation. Certain things happen to be good but we at times consider it to be bad. Keep seeking help from Allah through patience and salah. Have Trust in Allah. KNOW and remember this: if all the people of the world wish to harm you, and if Allah decides good for you, NONE in the world will be able to harm you in the least.

      May Allah help you overcome tensions and stress in life. Aameen.

      Comment by MuQeet | February 25, 2013 | Reply

      • Jazak Allah khair Brother. I will try to follow your advise in shaa Allah. But to be more clear, is it okay if I don’t actively try to find him, ask people around for help, as I have seen, no one helps, or they suggest someone they wouldn’t marry themselves…..so placing trust in Allah is enough, and if he is meant to come, he will somehow?

        Sorry to bother, but so kind of you to reply. Do you serve as an Islamic scholar at a mosque? Kindly make dua, I find a righteous man soon. ameen

        Comment by Sister | February 25, 2013

      • Barakallahu Feek.
        I am not suggesting that give you up your search totally. But do it through your closest friend who can share your concern in a genuine way.
        Or you yourself can look out for your match as per your own liking which will be better for you. You need not have to tell others.
        May Allah help you in your sincere pursuit. Aameen.
        PS: I teach at a school, not at a mosque.

        Comment by MuQeet | February 26, 2013

    • Sister, If you don’t mind I would like to share something with you. (Even though the situation was directed towards brother Muqeet)
      Sister, I truly feel for you as I am going through something similar.Before I dint used to bothered about marriage as I dint think I was ready.
      But later I felt in need of a companionship, as in life certain times you feel you need to share certain joys and sorrows with your life partner only. I started thinking about marriage a lot. When I used to see married couples, (especially practicing Muslims), I used to feel sad..I wished in my heart, that I would get married soon. I started becoming depressed and frustrated too. I started rethinking if I have set the criteria of a husband too high….
      As people too around me constantly asked about my marriage plans. That made it more difficult.

      When I realized that I’m thinking about it a lot, and mostly during the day I’m depressed. And its not helping me in any way. I decided I had to start focusing on other things. I understood that maybe it is not right time for me now that is the reason I’m still single. Maybe it is for my betterment.
      During my depression period too, I cried thinking that I’m meant to be alone and marriage is not written for me.

      It is not that I don’t think about marriage now. But I have chose to keep it aside. And not to make it my first and foremost priority for the time being. I believe that when it is the right time, it will happen. I have requested the near and dear ones to know look for a suitable person. I can only do this much.

      I know it is frustrating when you don’t find a suitable person. And people who don’t know you closely don’t really help and actually make matters worse by reminding you that you are unmarried! But I have started to handle that too. I simply smile or ignore it or just give some reply.

      I try to keep myself busy where ever I’m..even during weekends! Or I try to be with family and friends so that I don’t feel alone. Yes, as a human, emotions at times to dominate but I quickly remind myself that definitely Allah will fulfill my wish, when He Wills.

      A close friend of mine and I always say one thing that when our suitable partners come in our life we will tell them, “Hey! where were you and what were you doing? Why did you make me wait so long?” (:
      And as she says that maybe he might be thinking the same thing. Allah has created someone for everyone.

      Humor is necessary to keep us going.

      You will be in my du’aa’s, InshaaAllah.

      May Allah give every Muslim and Muslimah a suitable life partner, Aameen.

      I’m extremely sorry for the ‘post’ like comment!

  19. Thank you brother Muqeet and OutspokenHijabi Sister. Yes, I was the same way, handling it lightly, until I hit 30. Now in my 30s, people don’t even want to get to know who I am, just because of age, I am totally outcasted. And I am so scared, that time is just running so fast…..i have no hopes of finding anyone. Anyways, in shaa Allah let’s pray for each other. Asalamualaikum

  24. SubhanAllah what a wonderful explanation, I was reciting it quite frequently but this morning I wanted to see the complete meaning of this glorious aayat and it makes me feel so lighter and tension free. Made me cry with emotions and the love Allah has for us but which we overlook for petty things which will not last for more than a blink of an eye. I hope and pray Allah (swt) guide us to the right path and make us the chosen one on Judgement Day.
    There was another comment from a sister who seems to be on the verge of hopelessness, please know that hopelessness amounts to kufr and kufr is non-pardonable. Please don’t lose your hope, I am sure InshaAllah you would have a wonderful spouse soon, Allah jab nawazta hai to ehsaas bhi nahin hota ki kahan se barkat aayi hai aur kaise mushkilaat aasan hui hain.
    Allah hum sab ko Imaan ki mazbooti ataa farmaye. Ameen
