With Him AWJ

Assalamualaykum wr wbt,

عَنْ أَبِي الْعَبَّاسِ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ : كُنْتُ خَلْفَ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَوْماً، فَقَالَ : يَا غُلاَمُ إِنِّي أُعَلِّمُكَ كَلِمَاتٍ: اْحْفَظِ اللهَ يَحْفَظْكَ، احْفَظِ اللهَ تَجِدْهُ تُجَاهَكَ، إِذَا سَأَلْتَ فَاسْأَلِ اللهَ وَإِذَا اسْتَعَنْتَ فَاسْتَعِنْ بِاللهِ، وَاعْلَمْ أَنَّ اْلأُمَّةَ لَوْ اجْتَمَعَتْ عَلَى أَنْ  يَنْفَعُوْكَ بِشَيْءٍ لَمْ يَنْفَعُوْكَ إِلاَّ بِشَيْءٍ قَدْ كَتَبَهُ اللهُ لَكَ، وَإِنِ اجْتَمَعُوا عَلَى أَنْ يَضُرُّوْكَ بِشَيْءٍ لَمْ يَضُرُّوْكَ إِلاَّ بِشَيْءٍ قَدْ كَتَبَهُ اللهُ عَلَيْكَ، رُفِعَتِ اْلأَقْلاَمُ وَجَفَّتِ الصُّحُفِ

رواه الترمذي وقال : حديث حسن صحيح

Abu al-‘Abbas ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas(ra) reported: One day I was behind the Prophet(sas)and he said to me:“I was riding behind the Prophet, peace be upon him, when he said, ‘Young man, I will teach you some words. Be mindful of God, and He will take care of you. Be mindful of Him, and you shall find Him at your side. If you ask, ask of God. If you need help, seek it from God. Know that if the whole world were to gather together in order to help you, they would not be able to help you except if God had written so. And if the whole world were to gather together in order to harm you, they would not harm you except if God had written so. The pens have been lifted, and the pages are dry.’ ”
Allah IS With Us
Take a pause and observe your fingers. Then peek through the wonderfulness subhanAllah of the finger prints that Allah azza wa jalla Has Created. Uniquely for each finger of yours. And try classify these.
75:1
75:2
75:3
75:4
“I swear by the Day of Resurrection
And I swear by the reproaching soul [to the certainty of resurrection].
Does man think that We will not assemble his bones?
Yes. [We are] Able [even] to proportion his fingertips.”
[Al Quran, Surah Al Qiyamah : 1-4]
SubhanAllah, such super meticulousness Allah s.w.t Is even in creating our fingertips, arranging and fashioning the fingerprints amidst other complexity of our composition.
Imam Al Ghazali said,

“God – may He be praised and exalted- is creator [Al Khaliq] in as much as He is the planner [Al Muqaddir], producer [Al Bari’] in as much as He initiates existence, and fashioner [Al Musawwir] in as much as He arranges the forms of things invented in the finest way.”

Allahuakbar. For this, He azza wa jalla Has Created us, Planned the best for us, produced for us and He s.w.t Fashioned us in the finest way for He s.w.t Knows us the best. Allah s.w.t  With Us in terms of Ammah (General) and Khassah (Specific) terms. Some of the evidences in Quran al Kareem which shows us that Allah s.w.t is always with us is  in Surah Qaf , Verse 16-18,

50:16

50:17

50:18

“And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein

When the two receivers receive, seated on the right and on the left.

Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record].”

[Al Quran, Surah Qaf : 16-18]

And in Surah Al Hadid, Allah s.w.t Mentions ;

57:4

57:5

“It is He who created the heavens and earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne. He knows what penetrates into the earth and what emerges from it and what descends from the heaven and what ascends therein; and He is with you wherever you are. And Allah , of what you do, is Seeing. His is the dominion of the heavens and earth. And to Allah are returned [all] matters.”

[Al Quran, Surah Al Hadid : 4-5]

Allah s.w.t Knows everything. For everything the soul whispers therein He Knows. For every letter that comes out of the mouth, the angels are ready to jot down everything, not missing anything at all. Ya Allah, may Allah Protect us from being careless in using the mouth wrongly. 

And in the story of one extraordinary man Allah s.w.t Has Taught us, when Musa a.s. was going against Firaun, Allah s.w.t Gave him Help from ways he can never imagine.

26:62

26:63

26:64

26:65

[Moses] said, “No! Indeed, with me is my Lord; He will guide me.”

Then We inspired to Moses, “Strike with your staff the sea,” and it parted, and each portion was like a great towering mountain.

And We advanced thereto the pursuers.

And We saved Moses and those with him, all together.

[Al Quran, Surah Ash Syuaraa : 62-65]

9:40

If you do not aid the Prophet – Allah has already aided him when those who disbelieved had driven him out [of Makkah] as one of two, when they were in the cave and he said to his companion, “Do not grieve; indeed Allah is with us.” And Allah sent down his tranquillity upon him and supported him with angels you did not see and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowest, while the word of Allah – that is the highest. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.

[Al Quran, Surah At Tawba : 40]

The above ayah was revealed during the incidence of Hijrah where our beloved Prophet s.a.w was in the cave with his s.a.w Companion, Abu Bakr As Siddiq r.a. Allah s.w.t Blessed them with tranquility and support from Him awj and angels for they were standing for the truth.

Allah’s Messenger said that Allah said: He who comes with a good deed, its reward will be ten like that or even more. And he who comes with vice, his reward will be only one like that, or I can forgive him. He who draws close to Me a hand’s span, I will draw close to him an arm’s length. And whoever draws near Me an arm’s length, I will draw near him a fathom’s length. And whoever comes to Me walking, I will go to him running. And whoever faces Me with sins nearly as great as the earth, I will meet him with forgiveness nearly as great as that, provided he does not worship something with me.

(This Hadith is sound and reported by Muslim, Ibn Majah and Ahmad in his Musnad).

Another prophetic tradition says: (He who met Allah associating anything with Him, will enter Hell)

(Muslim)

Allahua’lam.

Keep the Ummah in your precious duaas please.
