Three Quick Lessons

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

I found this explanation on Ayah number 11 of Surah At-Taghaboon, short and meaningful. 

“No disaster strikes except by permission of Allaah. And whoever believes in Allaah – He will guide his heart. And Allaah is Knowing of all things.” – [at-Taghabun; 11]

Three Quick Lessons learned from this profoundly rich ayah:

1. “No disaster strikes except by permission of Allaah..“ – Everything that happens to us – good or bad – is with the permission of Allaah. Once we know that, then one thing is for sure: Allaah does what He does for our sake. As in every challenge that we encounter, is a reality check from Him, a reminder, a wake-up call, and it is also a push for us in the right direction. It is thenupon us to grasp this realization and take benefit from it. He’s put you in the middle of a test, what have you learned from it? Where are you going with it?

2. “And whoever believes in Allaah – He will guide his heart.. – so beautiful subhan’Allaah. Believing in Allaah entails relying on Him, having faith in Him and trusting Him such that when you’re about to fall (into a test), you do so knowing that He will be there to catch you, and will guide you throughout. So when you’re tested, who do you run to? Who is it that you turn your heart to? Are you seeking guidance from the wrong sources?

3. “..And Allaah is Knowing of all things.” – The ayah ends with what it teaches us in the first part: Allaah is aware of everything that happens. Just as these trials take place with His Permission and His Wisdom, our reactions to it are also known to Him. If your sadness has brought you down to your knees to seek help from Allaah, then know that your tears are not hidden from Him. But if your pain has taken over you so much that you have resolved to sins, then that too – no matter what reason or logic you cloak it with – is not concealed from Allaah. Take a moment to reflect on your reactions to what you’re going through. Has your anguish blinded you from seeing through the wisdom in your test or is your heart rich and satisfied with contentment?

  2. JazakAllah Brother Muqeet.
    Hadees No.113 of Tarjumane-Hadees (which i had read yesterday) compliments this ayah! subhanAllah!

    No disaster befalls except with the knowledge of Allah subhanahu wa Ta’ala
    No goodness comes except with the knowledge of Allah subhanahu wa Ta’ala….
    Patience at trying times will include the mercy and help of Allah!
    Every disaster has to come to an end and goodness has to prevail….

    Surely HE knows the right thing and right time for us! SubhanAllah,
    May Allah guide us to the right path!
