Asking God for Help – Part II
[Quote – 298]

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

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


“We are all weak, mortal – helpless. And we all need help.

Without help, from all kinds of sources, human life on earth is inconceivable.

We are often the sum total of the help given to us, or not given to us, by our parents, teachers, friends, relatives, governments and others.

But above all, we are an embodiment of the help God Almighty gave us, every step of the way into this journey we call life.

We are a reflection of his love, mercy, compassion and helpfulness.

And of his benevolence and charity and giving.

Every pore in our body is. Every possession in our hands is.

And without his continued help, giving and sustenance, we will not survive in this world for one microsecond.

That is why it makes sense for us to turn to him for help in all our affairs, big or small.

And ask him for help.

For, without his help and decree nothing ever gets done in this world.

And without his disposing of things, nothing moves, nothing happens.

Whatever it is that you need, the Prophet, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, indicated, ask him, not others.

Even if it is only your shoelace that you need help with, turn to God for help, a Hadith seems to suggest.

That means nothing is too big or too small for you to ask or for him to give.

And he loves to give more than you love to ask.

Just consider this:

No one else has a name: The Greatest Giver and Bestower of All – Al-Wahhaab.

No one else calls himself: The One Who Loves to Do Favors More than Anyone Else – Al-Mannaan.

No one else carries a title that says: The Most Generous and Giving of All – Al-Jawaad.

Nor does anyone pride himself on being the Most Bounteous and Noble of All in Giving – Al-Kareem.

And no one else ever set himself as the Most Tolerant, Patient, Gentle and Forbearing in the face of importunities from those in need or distress – Al-Haleem.

So, the Prophet, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, doesn’t want you to take your mind off these attributes of your creator even for one moment.

And he wants you to rush to him every time you need anything, no matter how small, and no matter how big.

And the fact is, no one else owns anything.

And no one else loves to give the way God, your maker and master, does.

So, it is to him you must turn and it is him you must ask for help.

In all things, small or big.” (Dr. Pasha)
