Allah’s Decisions in Our Lives [Quote 414]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


When Allah makes a decision pertaining to us human beings – when he does; as he does; which he does all the time – those blessed by Allah say “Alhamdulillah!” and move on, their sundry duties to perform.

On the other hand, those who have worked to take themselves out of the downpour of Allah’s mercy and blessings don’t know what to do or how to react.

So, instead of panicking and running to Allah, and throwing themselves on Allah’s mercy, they wail and gripe and try to run away from Allah and his mercy.

Thus, they only make their predicament worse.

Some of them even curse themselves and everything and everyone in sight. They scream in their foolish arrogance and rage and fear and panic: “Why? Why? Why Me?”

Compared to all this, Alhamdulillah is perfect language for all times – none better – and for all seasons, as some would say. It means – among all the wonderful things it means – things like “Thank You! We Accept!

That in slave language translates to: “Yes, Master! Thank You Master!

And it means: “Of Course, Master! Whatever You Say, Master!”

And it says: “We Submit! We Surrender!”

Of course many people don’t understand the fact that all time is Allah’s Decision Time. And Allah’s Decisions are ongoing, ever-present.

And the functioning of the Universe, to the extent we are able to see and grasp it, as per every micro-, nano- or picosecond, or in Planck Time, is nothing but a mirror of the unfolding of Allah’s Supreme Will.

The Qur’an attests to this, over and over, in its most glorious Aayaat:

Kulla Yawumin Huwa Fe Sha’n;

Kun Fa-Yakoon;

Fa’aalul Limaa Yureed;

Yaf’alu Maa Yureed;

Yaf’alullahu Maa Yashaa-u;

Khaaliqu Kulli Shai-I;

Al-Khallaaqul ‘Aleem.

END

(Dr. Pasha)
