Allah Is Always Ready -- And Willing And Able!
That Is Who Allah Is By Definition!
(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)
Those of you who might have tuned in to last Friday's (January 20, 2017) Pasha Hour International, you may have picked up on a couple of things I said.
Nothing new. I have said them before.
I said, don't first pick a god and then argue about what all amazing things your god can do, as opposed to everyone else's god.
Instead, I said, first list the qualifications you have in mind for the position of God. Think through them as carefully and rigorously as you can.
All those attributes and qualities that you think are critical for anyone to qualify as God.
This is a methodology based on a process of elimination. And this methodology flips things on their heads.
And this is a methodology based on the Qur'an and on the approach used by Hazrat Ibrahim, Alaihis Salam, to discover God.
When you follow this methodology faithfully, you will see that at the end of the process, there is only one contender left standing that truly qualifies to be God.
And that candidate is not "Your God" or "My God," but God The Almighty: God The One and Only.
"The Inventor, Designer, Creator and Master of Heavens and Earth
-- and all things therein!"
Or as the Aayat of the Qur'an quotes Ibrahim, Alaihis Salam as saying:
... Alladhee Fataras Samaawaati Wal Ard...
And that God is the God of you, me and everything and everyone else. And that is the God that you really want.
In the kingdom of such a God, there is no delay of any kind. For anything.
For, such a God is not bound by considerations of space and time. Such a God does not follow the laws of Physics. And he is not constrained by logistics. And he is not dependent on means and material.
So, this Great Almighty God is ready and willing and able all the time. He runs his affairs by the unfailing, universal and instantaneous fiat of Kun-Fa-Yakoon.
Whenever he wants to decree something, he simply says to that thing "Be!" and that thing snaps to attention, salutes smartly and comes into being.
There is no gap or separation between God issuing his decree and things happening. The process is instantaneous.
No, change it to "Simultaneous."
Therefore, when we want things to happen in our life, the way to go about it is to:
(1) Make Intention,
(2) Do Research, Investigation, Analysis, Debate and Discussion,
(3) Say Bismillah and
(4) Set About Doing them.
So, the only meaningful question is: Are We Ready And Are We Willing?
When we are ready and willing, we will find that God Almighty is already ready and willing and able from way, way, way before: From Eternity.
The fact is we will find him waiting for us.
Hear the Qur'an say it:
La-Wajadullaha Tawwaaban Raheemaa!
"They would have found that Allah was ready and waiting
to shower them with his most abundant Grace, Mercy and Love,
and to forgive their trespasses and excesses and wrongful deeds."
