When Will The Help Of ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) come?!!
This happens out with me and many of us for sure : As soon as we get through one test one trial in this life, another one seems to simply be waiting for us.They seem never ending, and sometimes it’s just hard to even comprehend why we are going through such things. At the end of the day, we are left in a daze, asking the only question that seems fit: ‘When will this all be over?’
In the Book of Guidance, which is unlike any other book, ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) speaks to us about such trying times :
ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) says:
“Do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you?”
Throughout history, our ancestors have faced trials and have had to fight through tests.And even though at times we feel that maybe they were stronger than us, perhaps they just knew how to handle things better and they weren’t so affected by the rollercoaster of life; the truth is, it affected them too. ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) tells us that it did:
They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said, “When will the help of ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) [come] ?”
They wanted to know when all this pain and hardship would be over. And ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) answered them beautifully. Not only did He answer them, but He also answered you and me. He directed his statement to all of us, letting us know that we too have hope:
“Unquestionably, the help of ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) is near.”
Don’t give up. Hold on tight the rope of ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى), and realize that the help of ALLAH (سبحانه وتعالى) is nearer than you realize. Turn to Him, ask of Him and He will answer.
Da’wah ALLAH (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى)
Subhan Allah this! Much needed.
Shaikh ’Uthaymeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “I warn some of those women whose evil deeds—leaving their nails to grow and making them long—has been made alluring to them by Shaitaan. [I warn them] because it goes against the fitrah [one’s natural disposition] and the time the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم laid down for his nation, because the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم set a time [limit for the trimming of] the nails, the pubic region and the armpits, and moustaches for men, of no more than forty days.”
