The Power of Words

 

A truly deep and profound hadith – Allah’s knows what condition is best for us

The Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Allah (swt) said: ‘Verily, from amongst My slaves is he whose faith cannot be rectified except by being inflicted with poverty, and were I to enrich him, it would surely corrupt him. Verily, from amongst My slaves is he whose faith cannot be rectified except by wealth and affluence, and were I to deprive him, it would surely corrupt him. Verily, from amongst My slaves is he whose faith cannot be rectified except by good health, and were I to make him sick, it would surely corrupt him. Verily, from amongst My slaves is he whose faith cannot be rectified except by disease and illness, and were I to make him healthy, it would surely corrupt him. Verily, from amongst My slaves is he who seeks worship by a certain act but I prevent that from him so that self-amazement does not enter his heart. Certainly, I run the affairs of My slaves by My Knowledge of what is in their hearts. Certainly, I am the All-Knower, All-Aware.‘”

[Reported by al-Tabarani.]

When Allah wishes good for a person

When Allah wishes good for a person

On the authority of Muawiyah (May Allah be please with him) it is reported that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said,

“When Allah wishes good for someone, He bestows upon him the understanding of Deen”

[Bukhari and Muslim]

Explanation

“Knowledge and understanding of Deen (religion) here stands for the understanding of the Qur’an and Hadith, religious injunctions, and knowledge of the lawful and the unlawful. This Hadith highlights the excellence of knowledge and the fact that it is a sign of Allah’s Help to the person who possesses it and acts upon it.”

Seeking refuge from four things

Seeking refuge from four things

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him) it is related that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) used to say,

“O Allah, I seek refuge in you from four things: Knowledge which does not benefit, a heart which is not submissive, a soul which has an insatiable (i.e. greedy, never satisfied) appetite, and a supplication which is not heard.”

[Abu Dawood]
