Two words that bring divine help!

The word, Wallahul Musta’aan, as mentioned in the Quran, was said by Yaqoob عليه السلام when his sons came up with a false story of what happened to Yousuf عليه السلام. Yaqoob tried his best to find the truth but his sons teamed up to defend their heinous act and lies. Tired of the situation, Yaqoob asked Allah for Sabrun Jameel (beautiful patience) followed by Wallahul Mustaa’an.

According to the commentators of the Quran, Wallahul Musta’an is used to call for Allah’s help when you find yourself in impossible situations, when people team up against you to defend their lies, when people accuse you of something false, when you have given your best and desperately waiting for desired results, when you feel you’re in a situation where there’s no way out. It’s literally saying to Allah that I have given my best and now I am taking a backseat, I want You to take charge of the driving seat and solve this matter with your Divine intervention.

And patience automatically becomes beautiful when, with all your heart, mind, and soul you leave the matter to Allah.

Don’t worry if the situation seems impossible, remember you’re asking the One who just have to say ‘Kun’ — be and it is.

You are asking the One who calls Himself, Al-Fattah — the opener; Who creates a way out when there seems to be no way. So take a backseat and let Allah do the rest.

Wallahul Musta’an – “Allah is the one sought for help”

Always be a well wisher!

In Makkah, next to a major Bin Dawood superstore a rival new company was entering the Kingdom and decided to open a mega-store right next to Bin Dawood, within meters. The manager was perturbed, “Why can’t they just open somewhere else.”

The owners of Bin Dawood frowned on his outlook. They ordered him to send his workers to the other store being set up and offer them tea and food and any help they needed to setup!

The manager was left astounded. The Bin Dawood management simply replied, “Our rizq is fixed, they cannot take a single riyal from what has been decreed upon us. So why not gain reward from Allah and help them.”

Don’t worry about others, if you do your work with sincerity and Allah gives you success then you will never have your success limited by others. Become a good wisher.

For An Increase In Blessings

Al-Hasan al-Basri [may Allah have mercy on him] said:

“There is no man who acknowledges the blessings of Allah upon himself, and then says:

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي بِنِعْمَتِهِ تَتِمُّ الصَّالِحَاتُ

Alhamdulillahil lathee bi-ni’matihi tatimmus salihaat

‘All praise [and thanks] is for Allah, Whose blessing of good deeds are perfected [and accomplished]’ except that Allah will enrich him and increase for him!”

Hilyat ul-Awliyaa’ 1857 | Al-Imam Abu Nu‘aym [may Allah have mercy on him]

“He (Prophet Ayyub) had plenty of livestock, cattle and crops, many children and beautiful houses, and he was tested in these things, losing everything he had. Then he was tested with regard to his body, and he was left alone on the edge of the city and there was no one who treated him with compassion apart from his wife, who took care of him.

It was said that it reached the stage where she was in need, so she started to serve people (to earn money) for his sake.”

Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir 21:83
