To gain the utmost from the Qur`an

اللّهم ارْزقنَا حفظَ الْقُرآن ، وبَركة الْقُرآن ، وسَكينة الْقُرآن ونُور الْقُرآن ، وَشِفَاء الْقُرآن ، وهِداية الْقُرآن ، وشفَاعة الْقُرآن

O Allah grant us the ability to memorise the Qur`an, the blessing of the Qur`an, the tranquility of the Qur`an, the light of the Qur`an, the healing of the Qur`an, the guidance of the Qur`an and the intercession of the Qur`an.

The Way Allahs Decree Protects Us…

قال قتادة

قد فرح به أبواه حين ولد وحزنا عليه حين قتل ولو بقي لكان فيه هلاكهما فليرض امرؤ بقضاء الله فإن قضاء الله للمؤمن فيما يكره خير له من قضائه فيما يحب.

Qatadah said regarding the child al-Khidr killed:20120506-011601.jpg

“His parents rejoiced when he was born and grieved for him when he was killed.

If he had stayed alive, he would have been the cause of their doom.

So let a man be content with the decree of Allah, for the decree of Allah for the believer, if he dislikes it, is better for him than if He were to decree something that he likes for him.”

Be serious in your supplications, for indeed, whoever keeps knocking on the door will have it opened for him.

Allah Has Made Every Doer and What He Does.

قوله صلى الله عليه وسلم : ” إن الله يصنع كل صانع وصنعته “ أخرجه البخاري في خلق أفعال العباد

قال الشيح ابن سعدي ـ رحمه الله ـ : ” إن الله كما أنه الذي خلقهم ـ أي الناس ـ ، فإنه خلق ما به يفعلون من قدرتهم وإرادتهم ؛ ثم هم فعلوا الأفعال المتنوعة : من طاعة ومعصية ، بقدرتهم وإرادتهم اللتين خلقها الله

الدرة البهية شرح القصيدة التائية ص

The Prophet (salallahu alayhe wasallam) said: Allah has made every doer and what he does.”

Shaykh Ibn Sa’di (rahimahullah) said: Just as Allah is the One Who created them – meaning people – He has also created that by means of which they act, namely their abilities and will, then they do various actions of obedience and sin, by the abilities and will which Allah has created.

1. Narrated by al-Bukhari in Khalq Af’aal al-‘Ibaad (25)

Want it? Make Du’aa, Du’aa and More Du’aa For It!

الدعاء من الأسباب التي يحصل بها المدعو ، وهو في الواقع يرد القضاء ، ولا يرد القضاء إلا الدعاء ، يعني له جهتان ، فمثلاً : هذا المريض قد يدعو الله تعالى بالشفاء فيشفى ، فهنا لولا هذا الدعاء لبقي مريضاً ، لكن بالدعاء شُفي ، إلا أنا نقول : إن الله سبحانه وتعالى قد قضى بأن هذا المرض يشفى منه المريض بواسطة الدعاء ، فهذا هو المكتوب . يظن أنه لولا الدعاء لبقي المرض ، ولكنه في الحقيقة لا يرد القضاء ؛ لأن الأصل أن الدعاء مكتوب ، وأن الشفاء سيكون بهذا الدعاء ، هذا هو القدر الأصلي الذي كتب في الأزل ، وهكذا كل شيء مقرون بسبب ، فإن هذا السبب جعله تعالى سبباً يحصل به الشيء ، وقد كتب ذلك في الأزل قبل أن يحدث

“المجموع الثمين من فتاوى فضيلة الشيخ محمد بن صالح العثيمين”

Du’aa is one of the means by which what is asked for is attained. In fact it wards off the divine decree and nothing wards off the divine decree except du’aa, and that may happen in two ways.

For example, a sick person may pray to Allah for healing and be healed, and were it not for the du’aa he would have remained sick, but he was healed by means of the du’aa. But we say: Allah decreed that the sick person would be healed from this sickness by means of du’aa, and this is what was decreed. He thinks that were it not for the du’aa he would have remained sick, but in fact he did not ward off the divine decree, because the basic principle is that du’aa was decreed and that the healing would come by means of this du’aa’, and this is the original decree that was decreed from eternity.

The same applies to everything that is decreed to happen through some means or cause. Allah has made this means the cause for the thing to happen, and that was decreed from eternity, before it happened.

Allah Never Says No.

فالدعوة التى ليس فيها اعتداء يحصل بها المطلوب أو مثله ، وهذا غاية الإجابة ، فإن المطلوب بعينه قد يكون ممتنعاً أو مفسداً للداعى أو لغيره ، والداعي جاهل لايعلم ما فيه المفسدة عليه ، والرب قريب مجيب وهو أرحم بعباده من الوالدة بولدها ، والكريم الرحيم إذا سئل شيئاً بعينه وعلم أنه لا يصلح للعبد إعطاؤه : أعطاه نظيره ، كما يصنع الوالد بولده إذا طلب منه ما ليس له ، فإنه يعطيه من ماله نظيره ، ولله المثل الأعلى .

” مجموع الفتاوى “

The du’aa’ in which there is no transgression will be answered, or else the person will be given something equal to it.

This is the best response. For the thing that he asked for may be unattainable or may be harmful to the person who prayed or to someone else, but he is ignorant and unaware of the harmful elements in it.

But the Lord is Close and Ever-Responsive, and He is more compassionate towards His slaves than a mother towards her child.

And He is the Most Generous, Most Merciful: if He is asked for a specific thing and He knows that giving it is not in the best interests of His slave, He will give him something of equal value, as a father does for his child when he asks him for something that is not good for him, so he gives him something of equal worth, and for Allah is the highest description.

So Adhere to Duaa.

أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال

 

  إِنَّ الدُّعَاءَ يَنْفَعُ مِمَّا نَزَلَ وَمِمَّا لَمْ يَنْزِلْ ، فَعَلَيْكُمْ عِبَادَ اللهِ بِالدُّعَاءِ

رواه الترمذي

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

“Duaa is beneficial with regard to what has already taken place and what has yet to take place  so adhere to duaa, O slaves of Allah.”

Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (3548)
