ۚ إِنَّهُ كَانَ وَعْدُهُ مَأْتِيًّا
Indeed, His promise has ever been coming.
Surat Maryam (Mary) – سورة مريم
As Salam Alykum,
More tracking for Allah’s promises as in [Promise 1], we find that Allah promises a lot.
One promise that keeps repeating through out Quran in different words is:
وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُ مَخْرَجًا وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ ۚ وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ ۚ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْرًا
And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him a way out. And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah – then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent.
Surat Aţ-Ţalāq (The Divorce) – سورة الطلاق
One of my favorite and hardest promises in Quran. This promise was mentioned in Surat AlTalaq – the divorce after mentioning what to do in case of divorce. So it is a clear advise/order on how important it is to behave in such situations.
In case of divorce, the guy/girl might be full of hate or love. I mean, may be they hate each other to the way they want to revenge at that point. Or may be, after the divorce..it is very hard for them to really go on. She still loves him or he still loves her by a way they wish they passed the rules to manage getting things fixed. I don’t know. Anyways, it is one of the hardest situations ever.
So, Allah’s mentioning how important it is to fear Allah in such situation in terms of a promise is magical. I mean, he didn’t mention the punish or just the ruling, but he mentioned how patience and fearing Allah at such situation might be the door for a better thing they both didn’t work for.
Yet, that promise was mentioned in a very general way. So it may fit us all. I always remember this promise in my hard situations. I also remember when someone told me : “those who didn’t have patience, lost knowing what would have happened if they had patience”. That promise is just so powerful and awesome. When you fear Allah, to not do what you can do..Allah will gets you out of this by a way you didn’t even imagine!..or plan for. When you rely on Allah, He is sufficient!. And even though such sentence is easy to tell. But it is so hard to do. Most people prefer relying on themselves when they are helpless and fearing what would happen not trusting that Allah can handle this?!. So its kind of vital to remember that “Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose.”. And most of Allah remembering that actually, your way or his way…Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent.
So no need to sin or even overload your fragile heart with someone you can’t handle. While ALLAH is sufficient and there for you.
For sure, Always take steps yet with that Fear of Allah. That fear, doesn’t mean to be a weak person with no decisions. Actually in another surat Allah mentioned the two guys who had more courage, just because they feared Allah:
So actually fearing Allah makes you stronger, but stronger in whats right. Not weak to your worries and life.
