Seeking Allah

Ibn ‘Abbas (RA) narrated: “I was behind the Prophet (ﷺ) one day when he said: ‘O boy! I will teach you a statement: Be mindful of Allah and He will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and you will find Him before you. When you ask, ask Allah, and when you seek aid, seek Allah’s aid. Know that if the entire creation were to gather together to do something to benefit you- you would never get any benefit except that Allah had written for you. And if they were to gather to do something to harm you- you would never be harmed except that Allah had written for you. The pens are lifted and the pages are dried.'”

(Jami` at-Tirmidhi, Vol. 4, Book 37, Hadith 2706)

This is one of our favourite Hadiths and says so much. Allah is always there and will always protect you. If you remember Allah, He will remember you. There is nothing that happens without Allah’s permission, so say Alhamdulillah for the blessings of everything. If something happens that seems bad, know that another calamity may have been taken away from you and something better is destined for you. Nurture your Imaan, it will get you through everything life brings your way Insha’Allah. Share this with someone who needs to read it and increase your own blessings insha’Allah!
