You know the famous verse of the Qur’an:
“Indeed you cannot Guide whom you love, but Allah Guides whom He wills.” – Surah Al Qasas Verse 56
According to scholars this verse was revealed years before the death of Abu Talib – the uncle of the Prophet Sall Allāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam.
When Abu Talib was dying, the Prophet went to him and found Abu Jahl and `Abdullah bin Abi Umayyah present.
The Prophet Sall Allāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam said: ‘O uncle! Say, `La ilaha illa-llah,’ a word concerning which I will plea for you with Allah, the Exalted and Most Honored.’
His uncle could have recited the shahada. He could have died a Muslim, either on his death bed or throughout his life spent with the Prophet. What more proof would anyone need?! He was related to the Prophet hearing him recite the verses of the Qur’an he still refused to believe. But he didn’t. He died a disbeliever. He could have said, ‘La ilaha illa-llah’ and proved the Qur’an fake as the verse was already revealed – but he didn’t.
Allah subhana wa tala Himself has challenged mankind & the eloquent speakers of the Arabs and non-Arabs to bring the like of it. Until this day we have proved incapable of doing so…
“And if you are in doubt as to that which We have revealed to Our servant, then bring the like of one of its chapters,” – Surah 2 Ayah 23; Holy Qur’an.
“Say: verily if all humans and jinn gathered to bring the like of this Qur’an, they would not bring the like of it, even if some of them supported others,” Surah 17 Ayah 88; Holy Qur’an.
Would you expect a human being, to provide a Book that discuss every part of life, past, present & future, without contradiction. A Book that is Divinely perfect and even if the Books were to be destroyed it is memorised in the hearts and minds of millions worldwide since the day it was perfected until now. Subhan’Allah…….
“This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion.” – Surah 5 Verse 3; Holy Qur’an.
Change starts from within. It makes me so sad when people forget Allah. I don’t care if you are Christian, Catholic, Muslim or Jewish just never be an Atheist. Never lose Faith in Him. Never give up on you. Never let the pain of this Dunya (life) convince you He is not there. I pray for the disbelievers in the world that one day they wake up with sincere Faith and turn the tables around – despite the odds. Those are my favourite kind of people.
Keep asking God to guide you, keep asking and He will guide you – even in your sleep; he will guide every toss & turn Subhan’Allah all you have to do is talk to Him…
May Allah guide us…
