Submission to the Will of Allah

The Acceptance of and Submission to the Will of Allah the Exalted

 

All praise is due to Allah The Exalted, and may Allah raise the rank of our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, his kind relatives and companions, and protect his nation from that which he feared for them thereafter;

 

Allah the Exalted said in the Qur’an:

وما خلقتُ الجِنَّ والإنسَ إلا ليعبُدون

Ayahs 56, 57, 58 in Surat Adh-Dhariyat mean: Allah created the Jinn and Humans and ordered them to worship Him.

 

Hence, if someone asks you, why did Allah create us? Let your answer be from the meaning of this Qur’anic Ayah: Allah created us to order us to worship Him. We are accountable for and obligated to worship Allah and to perform all the duties ordained upon us and to refrain from all prohibitions.

If someone asks you, why do not all people follow Islam? Your answer should also be drawn from the meaning of the other Ayah: 

 

وَلَوْ شِئْنَا لآتَيْنَا كُلَّ نَفْسٍ هُدَاهَا وَلَكِنْ حَقَّ الْقَوْلُ مِنِّي لأَمْلأَنَّ جَهَنَّمَ مِنَ الْجِنَّةِ وَالنَّاسِ أَجْمَعِينَ

 

Ayah 13 of Surat As-Sajdah means: Had Allah Willed guidance for everyone then certainly every soul would have followed the true path. However, Allah told that Hellfire will be filled with those non-believers among the jinn and mankind

 

Allah has not willed for everyone to be true believers.  Allah is the creator of the deeds and everything happens by His will, even the choice of humans and jinn.

 

If someone asks you, why did Allah ordain everlasting reward and pleasure in paradise for true believers and ordain the everlasting torture in Hell for blasphemers?  Let your answer be from the following Ayah:

وما ربُّك بظلّامٍ للعبيدِ وقولَه تعالى  فَعَّالٌ لِمَا يُريدُ،

These Ayahs mean: Allah is never unjust} and {He does whatever He wills

 

In addition, be warned not to tread the path of the followers of Iblis (Satan), those who object to the Will of Allah and as a result become expelled from His mercy in the Hereafter. Allah the Exalted says: 

لا يُسألُ عمّا يفعلُ وهم يُسألون

 

This Ayah means: Allah is not to be questioned about what He does, rather, the creations are.

Hence, the slaves are the ones who are questioned about their deeds.

 

Allah the Exalted ordered the angels to prostrate to Adam (peace be upon him), a prostration of salutation not a prostration of worship. The angels did, however, Iblis, who is a jinn objected and arrogantly refused to obey, thereby, blaspheming by his objection to Allah. So, there is no doubt, O brothers in belief, that the one who objects to the Decree of Allah, the Exalted, exits Islam.   

Also, remember my brothers in Islam that this world is the abode of calamities, hard work and preparation for life after death. So if you are inflicted with a calamity say what means: ‘We are the slaves of Allah and to His Decree we must surrender’. Hence, if one falls ill and objects to the Will of Allah, blaspheming as a result, let him know that blasphemy will not alleviate the illness. Similarly, if one mourns the death of a loved one and objects to the Will of Allah, blaspheming as a result, let him know that blasphemy will not bring back the dead.     

 

On the other hand, if a calamity befalls a Muslim and the Muslim remains patient and says: ‘Praise be to Allah for everything He endowed upon me; what Allah Has given me is truly His, and what Allah Has taken away is His as well, and we all must submit to His Will’.  The Muslim who does that shall be rewarded greatly.

 

We humbly ask Allah to enlighten us with the light of Knowledge, and keep us steadfast to the path of truth and righteousness. Ameen.
