Some observations on our state of affairs..

Some observations on our state of affairs..

We are punished by Allah for our misdeeds - We seek astaghfirullah…

We are tested by Allah - We say Inna lillah….

Before reading the verses,always remember that the door to tauba is open…Remember Allah says -

“My Mercy overpowers my Wrath”.

(1)We only fear Allah and not Rulers and Oppressors.The Angels guard the believers.We cannot see them but they protect us by the will of Allah.

Lahu muAAaqqibatun min bayni yadayhi wamin khalfihi yahfathoonahu min amri Allahi inna Allaha la yughayyiru ma biqawmin hatta yughayyiroo ma bianfusihim waitha arada Allahu biqawmin sooan fala maradda lahu wama lahum min doonihi min walin

For each (person), there are angels in succession, before and behind him. They guard him by the Command of Allah. Verily! Allah will not change the good condition of a people as long as they do not change their state of goodness themselves (by committing sins and by being ungrateful and disobedient to Allah). But when Allah wills a people’s punishment, there can be no turning back of it, and they will find besides Him no protector.

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Ar-Ra’d (13:11) -


(2) We are responsible for our sufferings.Our misdeeds land us in trouble.We go through pain due to our failings as a muslim.

Wama asabakum min museebatin fabima kasabat aydeekum wayaAAfoo AAan katheerin

And whatever of misfortune befalls you, it is because of what your hands have earned. And He pardons much. (See the Quran Verse 35:45).

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Ash-Shura (42:30) -


(3)We cannot hide from Allah.We will be brought to account for our actions in this life as well as the next.

Wama antum bimuAAjizeena fee alardi wama lakum min dooni Allahi min waliyyin wala naseerin

And you cannot escape from Allah (i.e. His Punishment) in the earth, and besides Allah you have neither any Wali (guardian or a protector) nor any helper.

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Ash-Shura (42:31) -


(4) Our sins are so great that our destruction is imminent and inevitable.But Allah azzawajal gives us time for a definite period.

Walaw yuakhithu Allahu alnnasa bima kasaboo ma taraka AAala thahriha min dabbatin walakin yuakhkhiruhum ila ajalin musamman faitha jaa ajaluhum fainna Allaha kana biAAibadihi baseeran

And if Allah were to punish men for that which they earned, He would not leave a moving (living) creature on the surface of the earth, but He gives them respite to an appointed term, and when their term comes, then verily, Allah is Ever AllSeer of His slaves.

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Faatir (35:45) -


(5)Corruption and Evil has appeared everywhere for what the hands of mankind has sown.We also reap and taste what we sow.

Thahara alfasadu fee albarri waalbahri bima kasabat aydee alnnasi liyutheeqahum baAAda allathee AAamiloo laAAallahum yarjiAAoona

Evil (sins and disobedience of Allah, etc.) has appeared on land and sea because of what the hands of men have earned (by oppression and evil deeds, etc.), that Allah may make them taste a part of that which they have done, in order that they may return (by repenting to Allah, and begging His Pardon).

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Ar-Room (30:41) -


(6) Why would Allah punish us if we obeyed His commands,believed and were grateful.If we are true to islam, Allah will not punish us.

Ma yafAAalu Allahu biAAathabikum in shakartum waamantum wakana Allahu shakiran AAaleeman

Why should Allah punish you if you have thanked (Him) and have believed in Him. And Allah is Ever All-Appreciative (of good), All-Knowing.

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: An-Nisaa (4:147) -


(7) Through both life and death we are tested.Only the best make it.

Allathee khalaqa almawta waalhayata liyabluwakum ayyukum ahsanu AAamalan wahuwa alAAazeezu alghafooru

Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is best in deed. And He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving;

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Al-Mulk (67:2) -


(8)Those of us who think Paradise can be achieved easily are deceived.The road to jannah is full of trials and tribulations.Look at this verse.But the help of Allah is near if we love Him.

Am hasibtum an tadkhuloo aljannata walamma yatikum mathalu allatheena khalaw min qablikum massathumu albasao waalddarrao wazulziloo hatta yaqoola alrrasoolu waallatheena amanoo maAAahu mata nasru Allahi ala inna nasra Allahi qareebun

Or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, “When (will come) the Help of Allah?” Yes! Certainly, the Help of Allah is near!

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Al-Baqara (2:214) -


(8)How many times we forget Allah.We are often ungrateful at loss of life,health,money..Aren’t We…How many times do we do dhikr e fesabillilah during a day….

Faothkuroonee athkurkum waoshkuroo lee wala takfurooni

Therefore remember Me (by praying, glorifying, etc.). I will remember you, and be grateful to Me (for My countless Favours on you) and never be ungrateful to Me.

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Al-Baqara (2:152) -


(9)And this is how help will come.This is the solution.

Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo istaAAeenoo bialssabri waalssalati inna Allaha maAAa alssabireena

O you who believe! Seek help in patience and As-Salat (the prayer). Truly! Allah is with As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Al-Baqara (2:153) -


(10)We will most certainly be tested.We have to be patient during our trials and tests.

Walanabluwannakum bishayin mina alkhawfi waaljooAAi wanaqsin mina alamwali waalanfusi waalththamarati wabashshiri alssabireena

And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Al-Baqara (2:155) -


(11) What should we say when afflicted with trials…

Allatheena itha asabathum museebatun qaloo inna lillahi wainna ilayhi rajiAAoona

Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: “Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.”

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Al-Baqara (2:156) -


(12)Being believers If you think you can take the slaves of Allah as your auliya…then Read on

Afahasiba allatheena kafaroo an yattakhithoo AAibadee min doonee awliyaa inna aAAtadna jahannama lilkafireena nuzulan

Do then those who disbelieve think that they can take My slaves [i.e., the angels, Allah’s Messengers, ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), etc.] as Auliya’ (lords, gods, protectors, etc.) besides Me? Verily, We have prepared Hell as an entertainment for the disbelievers (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism).

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Al-Kahf (18:102) -


(13)And those so called muslims who for the sake of modernity and under the influence of western philosophy reject the signs of Allah this one is for you…all your good deeds,charity etc will be wasted.

Olaika allatheena kafaroo biayati rabbihim waliqaihi fahabitat aAAmaluhum fala nuqeemu lahum yawma alqiyamati waznan

"They are those who deny the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of their Lord and the Meeting with Him (in the Hereafter). So their works are in vain, and on the Day of Resurrection, We shall not give them any weight.

Muslim Pro - Quote from the Holy Qur’an: Al-Kahf (18:105) -


(14)Finally the words of our Lord can never be exhausted…What we know from the Quran will continue to inspire mankind for ages to come before the Earth is annihilated.

Qul law kana albahru midadan likalimati rabbee lanafida albahru qabla an tanfada kalimatu rabbee walaw jina bimithlihi madadan

Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind). “If the sea were ink for (writing) the Words of my Lord, surely, the sea would be exhausted before the Words of my Lord would be finished, even if we brought (another sea) like it for its aid.”
