Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ اتَّقَوا وَّالَّذِينَ هُم مُّحْسِنُونَ
(Qur’ān 16:128). ‘Inna Llāha ma‘a lladhīna it-taqaw wa lladhīna hum muḥsinūn’, ‘Indeed, Allah is with those who fear Him and those who are doers of good.’ Sadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm.

Allah ﷻ is together with the believers and those who do good. Therefore, Mu’mins are lucky people. They have been given something that is not meant for everyone, given the best thing. ‘وَلَلدَّارُ الْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لِّلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَ’, ‘Wa Lalddāru l-‘Ākhiratu Khayrun Lilladhīna Yattaqūn’, ‘But the home of the Hereafter is best for those who are pious.’ (Qur’ān 06:32). Akhirah, the eternal life is the best life for these people. Also in the life of Dunya, everything is for their benefit. It is their luck.

Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla does whatever He ﷻ wants. We must always make Shukr to Him ﷻ. We must not grumble. The more of hardship it seems, the higher your rank increases and your Thawab increases. Don’t ruin that. Don’t grumble and complain. And don’t let the things you have gained go in vain.

Things happen. You cannot do anything. You must make Shukr for them and praise Allah ﷻ. When you praise Allah ﷻ, He ﷻ rewards you a hundred and a thousand times more based on the hardship of the test. Certainly, people, Mu’mins must do as much as they can. And then they must rely on Allah ﷻ. There is nothing else to do. Relying on Allah ﷻ and asking for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ is the duty of Mu’mins.

Mu’mins who do this are always [content]. That is why, “أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ”, “A-lā bi-dhikri Llāhi taṭmainnu l-qulūb”, “Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” (Qur’ān 13:28). Dhikr means remembering Allah ﷻ. Always remembering Him ﷻ is the means of all goodness. Your heart is content, and the Thawab and rewards you earn are everlasting. You don’t waste them.

Certainly, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla made this world good for Mu’mins. Those who are not Mu’mins, those who don’t believe in Allah ﷻ are always in hardship and distress. Whatever they do, it is useless. It has no value. They can build the whole world, it has no value at all in the sight of Allah ﷻ unless they do it for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ, unless they believe in Allah ﷻ. Therefore, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is together with the Mu’mins, those who believe. The biggest benefit is to be with Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla.

Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gives worldly benefit to people as a test. He ﷻ gives both wealth and poverty. And both have value. “وَسَنَجْزِي الشَّاكِرِينَ”, “Wa Sanajzī Ash-Shākirīn”, “And we will reward the grateful.” (Qur’ān 03:145). Wealthy people who make Shukr and do charity: it is a test from Allah ﷻ. He ﷻ gave them wealth. So they shouldn’t waste it. Allah ﷻ gave it to be beneficial for them and for others. Poverty is also from Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Who are patient with it attain their reward. What’s important is to be together with Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, to fear from Allah ﷻ and to be with Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Those are the ones who win. May Allah ﷻ make us from them insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
