Ask for Beneficence Not Tests

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Our Holy Prophet ﷺ says don’t ask for patience. Not to ask for patience means not to ask for a test, things that you cannot carry. Because Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gives a test and gives beneficence. Ask for beneficence. May we not be tested. A person who says he will pass when he is tested and asks for heavy things won’t be able to carry it.

Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says in Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan: ‘وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ’, ‘Wa Lā Tuĥammilnā Mā Lā Ţāqata Lanā Bihi’, ‘And burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear.’ (Qur’ān 02:286). – “Don’t give us burden that we cannot carry.” These beautiful Ayat were given as a beautiful gift to our Holy Prophet ﷺ on Laylatu l-Miraj. It is an important thing, so don’t ask for things you cannot carry. Always ask that Allah ﷻ treats us with kindness and beneficence. May He ﷻ treat us with His ﷻ grace and generosity.

Our everything is from Allah ﷻ. Therefore, whomever Allah ﷻ wants to show beneficence, He ﷻ knows by Himself. And He ﷻ knows whoever He ﷻ want to test. No one can prevent it. Only with Dua’, Sadaqah and the permission of Allah ﷻ it will be easy insha’Allah. Therefore, always ask for goodness and beneficence. Never ask for a test. Don’t think you will pass when you are tested.

This is the belief of people of Tariqah and Ahlu s-Sunnah wa l-Jama’ah. None of our actions will be accepted without the intercession of our Holy Prophet ﷺ. As he ﷺ is sent to us as mercy, there will be happiness both here and hereafter only with his ﷺ intercession insha’Allah.

Some people assume they will be saved with their deeds. They are cheated. They mislead others as well. And it is not good for both of them. We must know our weakness and never ask for a burden we cannot carry. [If it happens] We will do it, of course – May Allah ﷻ protect us – If something happens, what can we do? There is nothing else to do. We must be patient then. But it is not good to ask for something that hasn’t happened.

The holy word of our Holy Prophet ﷺ is important. Our Holy Prophet ﷺ who knows our situation and weakness is saying this to us out of mercy and benevolence. Always ask for goodness and beneficence. We are servants of beneficence and not the servants of tests insha’Allah. May Allah ﷻ protect us insha’Allah. May He ﷻ treat us all with beneficence insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
