Preserving the Jewels of Islaamic Knowledge

Amazing is the Affair of the Believer

This portion of the tafseer of Surah at-Taghabun, ayah 64 is really beautiful, masha’Allah, so I thought I would share it. (If you have a chance, take a look at the tafseer which can be found on http://www.tafsir.com/ of the entire surah. It’s an imaan-booster alhamdulillah.) Enjoy!

 

 

ما أَصابَ مِن مُصيبَةٍ إِلّا بِإِذنِ اللَّهِ ۗ وَمَن يُؤمِن بِاللَّهِ يَهدِ قَلبَهُ ۚ وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيءٍ عَليمٌ

No disaster strikes except by permission of Allah . And whoever believes in Allah – He will guide his heart. And Allah is Knowing of all things.

{Surat at-Taghabun 64:11}

 

All that occurs to Mankind is by Allah’s Permission

 

ما أَصابَ مِن مُصيبَةٍ إِلّا بِإِذنِ اللَّهِ

(No calamity occurs, but by the permission of Allah,)

 

Ibn `Abbas  said; “By the command of Allah,” meaning from His decree and will.

 

وَمَن يُؤمِن بِاللَّهِ يَهدِ قَلبَهُ ۚ وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيءٍ عَليمٌ

(and whosoever believes in Allah, He guides his heart. And Allah is

the All-Knower of everything.)

 

meaning, whoever suffered an affliction and he knew that it occurred by Allah’s judgment and decree, and he patiently abides, awaiting Allah’s  reward, then Allah  guides his heart, and will compensate him for his loss in this life by granting guidance to his heart and certainty in faith. Allah  will replace whatever he lost for Him with the same or what is better.

 

`Ali bin Abi Talhah reported from Ibn `Abbas ,

 

وَمَن يُؤمِن بِاللَّهِ يَهدِ قَلبَهُ ۚ

(and whosoever believes in Allah, He guides his heart.)

 

“Allah  will guide his heart to certainty. Therefore, he will know that what reached him would not have missed him and what has missed him would not have reached him.”

 

There is an agreed upon Hadith [that Al-Bukhari and Muslim collected and]

which states,

 

«عَجَبًا لِلْمُؤْمِنِ لَا يَقْضِي اللهُ لَهُ قَضَاءً إِلَّا كَانَ خَيْرًا لَهُ، إِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ ضَرَّاءُ صَبَرَ فَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَهُ، وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ سَرَّاءُ شَكَرَ فَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَهُ، وَلَيْسَ ذَلِكَ لِأَحَدٍ إِلَّا لِلْمُؤْمِن»

Amazing is the believer: There is no decree that Allah writes for him, but

is better for him. If an affliction strikes him, he is patient and this is

better for him. If a bounty is granted to him, he is thankful and this is

better for him. This trait is only for the faithful believer.
