Friday Message | Solving Problems

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

‘And [mention] the man of the fish, when he went off in anger and thought that We would not decree [anything] upon him. And he called out within the darknesses, “There is no deity except You; exalted are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.” ‘

(Surah Al Anbya 21:87)

The dua of Yunus (as) when he found himself in the belly of the fish. This dua is extremely powerful when one intends to solve a problem or is afflicted with difficulty.

It expresses Tauheed (Oneness of Allah), Glorifies Allah with His dearest word (Subhanallah), and our acknowledgment of sin resulting in a humble request of forgiveness…
(La ilaha illa anta, Subhanaka, Inni kuntu minaz-zalimin)

Rabanna #Two

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

“Our Lord, and make us Muslims [in submission] to You and from our descendants a Muslim nation [in submission] to You. And show us our rites and accept our repentance. Indeed, You are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.”

RABBANA WAJ ALNA MUSLIMAYNI LAKA WA MIN DHURRIYYATINA UMMATAM MUSLIMATAL-LAK WA ARINA MANASIKANA WA TUB ALAYNA INNAKA ANTAT-TAWWABUR-RAHIM.

(Surah Al Baqarah 2:128)

This was the dua of Ibrahim (as); the end result of his fear and recognition of Allah after completing actions whilst being obedient and subservient.

One should make this dua for obedience and subservience to Allah alone. The reason is that when the recognition of Allah is increased, his realisation is also increased.

Ibrahim (as) also made dua for his offsprings. The close servants of Allah are more concerned about the spiritual welfare of their offspring especially their welfare in the Aakhirah. Another reason for praying for the offspring is that they may, by their good deeds set a good example to future generations and the nation of Islam will benefit as a whole.

The Divine Decree Is Always A Bounty

Ibn Qayyim (May Allah be pleased with him) says:

“The divine decree related to the believer is always a bounty, even if it is in the form of withholding (something that is desired), and it is a blessing, even if it appears to be a trial, and an affliction that has befallen him is in reality a cure, even though it appears to be a disease!”

Friday Message | Love & Fear – The Balance

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

‘Indeed, your Lord is swift in penalty; but indeed, He is Forgiving and Merciful.’

(Surah Al Araf 7:167)

One of the most essential things that we Muslims must grasp is to incorporate the feeling of love, fear and hope of Allah within our hearts; the balance should be reflected in our worship.

We should always hope that Allah will accept our repentance and forgive us, but we should also fear that we may be accountable for our actions. May Allah (swt) grant us all the wisdom to understand, Ameen.
