If only we had been content | He will give us soon


Alhamdulillah, Allah made us sleep well, woke us up for Subuh, gave us tawfik to do some ibadah so we ought to say thanks to the Almighty who is Al Kareem, generous in His bounties. I am reminded of what Shaykh Al-Ninowy said about ehsan that is about performing solah seeing only Him, without even seeing ourselves or our own himmah (will power/strength) in doing so.

Alhamdulillah I thank Allah for this beautiful morning, for providing me good health, good food for breakfast and relaxing leisure time to blog - to remind myself one important takeaway from last night's Quran lesson, hopefully, it will benefit others too.

It's verse 59 of Surah At Tawbah.

Allah says: "If only they had been content with what Allah and His Messenger gave them and had said: 'Sufficient for us is Allah. Allah will give us from His bounty, and His Messenger will also give us. To Allah do we turn our hopes."

Verse 59 Surah At Tawbah

When someone says, "if only", it indicates their frustration, that they wished it was otherwise, they wished for a different outcome/situation that would have been better.

I think before the Almighty says "If only" to us, let's just say what He wished to hear.

"Sufficient for us is Allah.
Allah will soon confer on us His bounty
and so will His Messenger.
Indeed we are inclined to Allah alone."
[Translation by: Muhammad Tahir al-Qadri from altafsir.com]

"Sufficient unto us is God! God and His Apostle will soon give us His bounty; to God do we turn our hopes!
[Translation by Abdullah Yusuf Ali form altafsir.com]

Hasbunallahu sayuqti nallahu min fadhlihi wa Rasuluh
Innaa illallahi raaqibun

Subhanallah, Allah will not only give us His bounty, He will give it soon!

Sadaqallahul Azeem.
