🌟 Aspire for the Higher Objective (i.e., Allaah’s pleasure) even in your suffering!

🔊 Ibn al-Qayyim mentioned:
One of the scholars have said: “I pondered over the efforts that some of the wise men exert, and I saw that they exerted their efforts towards the same objective, even though the paths they took towards achieving this objective were different. I saw that all of them exerted efforts in getting rid of al-Hamm (anxiety) and al-Ghamm (grief) from their lives. This one would fight depression by eating and drinking, while this one by engaging in trading and earning profit, while this one with marrying (women), while this one by listening to music and singing, and this one by engaging in idle talk and amusement.”

I (Ibn al-Qayyim) say (in response): “These are the objectives of the (worldly) wise people, but all these paths do not lead towards the desired objective, rather, most of them produce the opposite result. And among all these paths I did not see any path leading towards the desired objective except the path of turning to Allaah alone, worshiping Him alone, and seeking His pleasure in all of the affairs.

So, if he follows this path (i.e., the path towards Allaah), even if he were to lose his share of the worldly life, he will succeed in achieving a higher objective - which one will not miss (i.e., Allaah’s pleasure, the Jannah etc.). If the slave achieves this objective, he has achieved everything, and if he misses it, he has lost everything. And (upon this path) if he were to also receive his share of the worldly life, he would be receiving it on the most cheerful of faces. There is no path more beneficial for the slave of Allaah except for this one. And there is no path other than this which would lead (all the way) towards (complete) delight, joy, and happiness.

And our success is from Allaah alone.”

⚡️ An important Dhikr after the Five daily prayers

💠Explanation of the Hadeeth: Your riches are of no benefit in front of Allaah

Warraad, who was the scribe and a freed slave of al-Mugheerah Ibn Shu`bah رضي الله عنه, narrated that Khaleefah Mu`aawiyah Ibn Abee Sufyaan رضي الله عنهما wrote to al-Mugheerah رضي الله عنه – and he was the Ameer assigned by Mu`aawiyah رضي الله عنه over al-Koofah – asking him to write for him a Hadeeth which he had heard from the Prophet ﷺ. So, al-Mugheerah رضي الله عنه wrote to Mu`aawiyah رضي الله عنه: “Allaah’s Messenger ﷺ used to say at the end of every obligatory prayer after the Tasleem:

لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ، وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ، وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ، وَهْوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ، اللَّهُمَّ لاَ مَانِعَ لِمَا أَعْطَيْتَ، وَلاَ مُعْطِيَ لِمَا مَنَعْتَ، وَلاَ يَنْفَعُ ذَا الْجَدِّ مِنْكَ الْجَدُّ

❝Laa ilaaha illa-l-laahu wahdahoo laa sharika lahoo; lahu-l-mulk wa lahu-l-hamd, wahuwa `alaa kulli shai’n Qadeer. Allaahumma laa maani`a Limaa a`taita, wa laa mu`tia Limaa mana`ta, wa laa yanfa`u dhal-jaddi minkal-jadd.

None has the right to be worshiped except Allaah Alone Who has no partner. His is the Kingdom and all praise, and Omnipotent is He. O Allaah! No one can withhold what You give, and none can give what You withhold, and the riches of a fortunate person will be of no avail to him against You, for from You comes all wealth and fortune.❞
📚 [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (844, 6330, 6615, 7292) and Saheeh Muslim]


📑 Terminologies:
❝Laa ilaaha illa-l-laahu❞, meaning: “None has the right to be worshiped except Allaah سبحانه وتعالى.”

❝wahdahoo laa sharika lahoo❞, meaning: “He alone deserves worship, and He has no partners or equals.”

❝His is the Kingdom.❞ , meaning: “ He is the Master and Owner of all that exists. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and the earth.”

❝and to Him belong all praise❞, meaning: “Complete and Perfect praise is for Him alone, and He alone deserves all praises.”

❝wahuwa `alaa kulli shai’n Qadeer❞, meaning: “He is the Omnipotent, and He does what He intends. There is nothing in the heavens and the earth that can cause failure to Allaah’s plans”

❝Allaahumma laa maani`a Limaa a`taita, wa laa mu`tia Limaa mana`ta❞, meaning: “If Allaah intends to give someone something, then there is no one who can withhold it from reaching that person. And if Allaah intends to withhold something from someone, then no one has any might or power to grant it to him against Allaah’s Will.” As Allaah تعالى said:

مَّا يَفْتَحِ اللَّهُ لِلنَّاسِ مِن رَّحْمَةٍ فَلَا مُمْسِكَ لَهَا ۖ وَمَا يُمْسِكْ فَلَا مُرْسِلَ لَهُ مِن بَعْدِهِ ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ

{Whatever of mercy (i.e., of good), Allaah may grant to mankind, none can withhold it, and whatever He may withhold, none can grant it thereafter. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise}
📚 [Surah Faatir (35):2]

❝wa laa yanfa`u dhal-jaddi minkal-jadd❞, “Al-Jadd” means: “One’s share of the worldly life and its riches, it could be either wealth, children, great status, high position, or superior knowledge. If Allaah does not Will, then the riches of a rich person will be of no benefit to him, the fortunes of a fortunate person will be of no benefit to him, and the knowledge of a knowledgeable person will be of no benefit to him. The only thing beneficial for a person is his good deeds. The phrase means: “O Allaah, a person’s share of the worldly life is not a reason for his success. Rather, his success is through your Favors and Mercy!”


♻️ Explanation:

This is an amazing Dhikr. It comprises of the declaration of Tawheed, i.e., only Allaah alone has the right to be worshiped, and it negates Shirk or associating any partners with Allaah in His worship, and it is an affirmation that everything belongs to Allaah and that He has absolute ownership over His vast Kingdom, and to Him belongs the perfect praise and the absolute power سبحانه وتعالى. And it is also an affirmation that He has complete control, nothing happens without His Will and nothing escapes His knowledge. What He Wills will happen and what He does not Will will not happen. This Dhikr has accumulated Tawheed al-Ruboobiyah (Lordship), Tawheed al-Uloohiyah (Worship), and Tawheed al-Asmaa was-Sifaat (Names and Attributes).

This Dhikr, it has been legislated to say it on two positions, or at two times. The first time is during the Salaah, after getting up from the Rukoo` (bowing) (as mentioned in another narration in Saheeh Muslim), and the other time is after completing the obligatory Salaah, i.e., after the Tasleem at the end of the five daily prayers.

“Dhal-Jaddi” means: “The one who has received fortune, Rizq (sustenance), wealth, riches, etc.” A person’s wealth, riches, status, ancestry, etc., will not benefit him, irrespective of who he is if he is not a sincere Believer. As Allaah تعالى said:

وَمَا أَمْوَالُكُمْ وَلَا أَوْلَادُكُم بِالَّتِي تُقَرِّبُكُمْ عِندَنَا زُلْفَىٰ إِلَّا مَنْ آمَنَ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَأُولَٰئِكَ لَهُمْ جَزَاءُ الضِّعْفِ بِمَا عَمِلُوا وَهُمْ فِي الْغُرُفَاتِ آمِنُونَ

{And it is not your wealth, nor your children that bring you nearer to Us (i.e., pleases Allaah), but only he (will please Us) who believes (in the Islaamic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds; as for such, there will be twofold reward for what they did, and they will reside in the high dwellings (Paradise) in peace and security.}
📚 [Surah Saba (34): 37]

So, do not be deceived by your strength, or wealth, or knowledge, or position, or your followers. If a person is not a sincere Believer, he will lose in this world and the Hereafter, and this is an ultimate loss.

So when a person says: ❝Allaahumma❞, it is with the meaning of praising Allaah and thanking Him, and acknowledging His favors and blessings, that no one can withhold what You give O Allaah! For all the matters are in Your Hands, and only what you Will will happen. All the good is from You, O Allaah! And evil cannot be ascribed to You!

All the good is in Allaah’s Hands, and this is one of the greatest favors of Allaah upon His slaves. If the keys of goodness were in the hands of people, everyone would have perished because of their jealousy, enmity, miserliness, stinginess, etc.

قُل لَّوْ أَنتُمْ تَمْلِكُونَ خَزَائِنَ رَحْمَةِ رَبِّي إِذًا لَّأَمْسَكْتُمْ خَشْيَةَ الْإِنفَاقِ ۚ وَكَانَ الْإِنسَانُ قَتُورًا

{Say (O Muhammad ﷺ): “If you possessed the treasure of the Mercy of my Lord (wealth, money, provision, etc.), then you would surely hold back (from spending) for fear of (being exhausted), and man is ever miserly!”}
📚 [Surah al-Isra (17): 100]

Imagine, the treasures of al-Rahmaan which never depletes irrespective of how much of it is spent, if Allaah were to give it to the people to manage, they will withhold it because of their stinginess and out of the fear of it getting exhausted and consumed. So, you should thank Allaah that no one can withhold from you if Allaah wants to grant it to you. By Allaah! If all the humans and Jinns were to gather together to prevent a thing from reaching you, which Allaah has decreed for you, they will not be able to do so.

Similarly, be content and acknowledge that if Allaah were to withhold a thing from you, then no one can give it to you after Him. By Allaah! If all the humans and Jinns were to gather together to give you something, which Allaah has not decreed for you, they will never be able to do so.

Then you say: ❝and the riches of a fortunate person will be of no avail to him against You, for from You comes all wealth and fortune.❞, everyone is poor in front of Allaah. If all the rich people were to gather their wealth together, they would still be poor and dependent upon Allaah for their needs, as Allaah تعالى said:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ أَنتُمُ الْفُقَرَاءُ إِلَى اللَّهِ ۖ وَاللَّهُ هُوَ الْغَنِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ

{O mankind! it is you who stand in need of Allaah, but Allaah is Rich (Free of all wants), Worthy of all praise.}
📚 [Surah Faatir (35): 15]

And Allaah تعالى said:

وَاللَّهُ الْغَنِيُّ وَأَنتُمُ الْفُقَرَاءُ

{and Allaah is the Free of need, while you are the needy (and poor)}
📚 [Surah Muhammad (47): 38]

So here it means: “O rich person, O king, O President, O knowledgeable one, do not be deceived with what you have, and fear Allaah, for nothing will benefit you with Allaah, and nothing will save you from the punishment of Allaah on that Day except for your Imaan and piety.”

And the Prophet ﷺ said:
❝And whoever is slowed down by his actions (i.e. bad deeds), will not be hastened forward by his lineage.❞
📚[Saheeh Muslim]

From this narration, one also learns that the Companions رضي الله عنهم used to advise one another. And they used to ask one another about the Sunnah of the Prophet ﷺ so that they could follow the Sunnah and implement it in their lives.


The sun is perpendicular on the Kaaba. Peoples shadow is directly underneath them and no shadow for the Kaaba (28th, May 2022)


I love this statement by Al-`Abbas ibn Abdil Muttalib, رضي الله عنه :

سئل العباس بن عبد المطلب رضي الله عنه عم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : أنت أكبر أم النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم؟

قال: "هو أكبر وأنا ولدت قبله."

Someone asked Al-`Abbas رضي الله عنه: "Are you older (literally: "bigger/ greater") or the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم?"

Al-`Abbas replied, "He is greater and I was born before him."

My heart melts in awe and admiration for this high level of manners, humility, wisdom, and intelligence, mashaAllah.

Al-`Abbas was one of the paternal uncles of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم , and he was only a few years older than his nephew. Al-`Abbas was renowned amongst the men of Quraysh for his sound judgment, wisdom, keen insight, and deep eloquence.

After the death of Rasul Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم , Al-`Abbas was asked who was older, he or Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم.

His answer reflects his respect and eloquence.

In Arabic, the word "older" in this context is also the same as "bigger" or "greater."

Al-`Abbas رضي الله عنه did not deem it fit that he should say the words, "أنا أكبر منه," as that would mean both:

"I am older than him," and also, "I am greater than him."

Even though he was older in age than his nephew, Al-`Abbas understood that nobody can ever be greater in status than Rasul Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم.

So to say that he was older than the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم , Al-`Abbas respectfully replied with this precise phrasing:

"He is greater than me, and I was born before him."

This statement of his never fails to move me! I always marvel at the advanced level of respect and humility embedded in these words and this mentality.

Contrast this beautiful adab of the Sahaba of Rasul Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم with our general irreverence, indifference, thoughtlessness now.

In the modern secular order, an overall culture of disrespect, defiance, and deviance pervades. Most secular people hate even the *notion* of hierarchy or owing respect to another no matter who it is. Parents and elders are treated dismissively. Women are not cherished or protected by men according to secular liberal culture. Feminism trains women to disrespect and scoff at men. Children are brazenly aborted.

Modernity indoctrinates most people to self-aggrandize, and instills a certain type of selfishness, hyper-individualism, and an obsession with absolute "equality" in a way that is absurd and laughable.

Alhamdulillah for the timeless wisdom and protection of Islam!


that the first person in the history to impose tax on the US was a Muslim? His name was Ghāzī Ḥassan Paşa of Algiers (1714-1790) also known as 'Paşa with Lion'.

Outside the Ottoman Empire he accomplished:

⚫️ Captured a Spanish warship when he was just a young janissary.
⚫️ Owned that Spanish ship which led to the foundation of his legendary story
⚫️ Captured and sunk many US warships in the Mediterranean.
⚫️ IMPOSED A TAX on the US. (The Ottomans were the first and the only Empire which imposed a tax on the US after their Independence).
⚫️ His actions caused the foundation of the treaty of Tripoli (in Turkish language) with the US which is also the first and the only treaty written in a foreign language in the US history.
⚫️ The US paid 642,000 Ottoman golds for once and 12,000 golds per year.
⚫️ Domesticated a Lion in Algiers and used to board the enemy ships with his Lion he captured.

Within the Ottoman Empire he accomplished:

🔴 Built a new and modern Ottoman fleet within 3 years with his own coins.
🔴 Became a grand vizier just before he passed away.
🔴 Laid the foundations of today's naval academies in Turkey.
🔴 Had many Mosques and schools built.

Ḥassan Paşa left this temporarily world leaving no children. May Allāh Ta'āla have mercy on him.


💠 The perfect Adab (etiquette) which `Eesaa عليه السلام will maintain while addressing Allaah تعالى on the Day of Judgment:

وَإِذْ قَالَ اللَّهُ يَا عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ أَأَنتَ قُلْتَ لِلنَّاسِ اتَّخِذُونِي وَأُمِّيَ إِلَٰهَيْنِ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ ۖ قَالَ سُبْحَانَكَ مَا يَكُونُ لِي أَنْ أَقُولَ مَا لَيْسَ لِي بِحَقٍّ ۚ إِن كُنتُ قُلْتُهُ فَقَدْ عَلِمْتَهُ ۚ تَعْلَمُ مَا فِي نَفْسِي وَلَا أَعْلَمُ مَا فِي نَفْسِكَ ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوبِ

{And [beware the Day] when Allaah will say: “O `Eesaa, Son of Mary, did you say to the people: ‘Take me and my mother as deities besides Allaah?’” He will say: “Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.}
📚[Surah al-Maaidah (5): 116]


📑 Translator’s Notes:

1️⃣ Regarding the response of `Eesaa Ibn Maryam: {You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself}, Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saaleh al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله commented:
❝Benefit (13): We do not know what is (hidden) with Allaah عز وجل. We do not know what is within Him – regarding what He جل وعلا is going to Decree and what He wants. We do not know the intention of Allaah تبارك وتعالى except after it has come to pass. Meaning: We do not whether Allaah has intended to make it rain except after it starts raining; and we do not know if Allaah has decreed that wars would take place between the people except after these wars have started. So, if something happens, then we know (with Certainty) that this is what Allaah has intended (and allowed to happen), and nothing happens in His Kingdom if He does not intend (or allow) it to happen.❞
📚[Tafseer Surah al-Maaidah of Shaikh Ibn al-`Uthaymeen]

2️⃣ Even though `Eesaa Ibn Maryam عليه السلام is innocent – and Allaah تعالى knows that he is innocent – yet Allaah جل وعلا will question him to establish Proof (Hujjah) against those who had taken `Eesaa and his mother عليهما السلام as objects of worship (gods) in this world.

3️⃣ Shaikh al-Sa`dee رحمه الله commented: ❝This is an example of the Messiah’s perfect etiquette in addressing his Lord. He will not say: “I said no such thing”; rather he will state that he never said anything contrary to his role as a Messenger, and that this is something impossible, and he declares his Lord to be completely above that and refers knowledge to the Knower of the unseen and the seen.❞
📚 [Tafseer al-Sa`dee]

4️⃣ About this Day the Prophet ﷺ said: The people will approach `Aadam, Nooh, Ibraaheem, Moosaa, and `Eesaa عليهم السللام to intercede with their Lord on their behalf on that Day, but each one of them will refuse saying: ❝My Lord is so angry as He has never been before and will never be in the future.❞
📚 [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (3340, 4712) and Saheeh Muslim (327)]

5️⃣ Now compare their actions that to ours. We - with our limited knowledge and limited understanding of the Qur’aan and Sunnah - try to Judge Allaah’s actions and then get impatient, sad, upset, disheartened, demoralized, and despair of His Mercy when we do not understand Allaah’s Wisdom in the things that He تعالى had decreed. Rather, we start having bad thoughts about Allaah سبحانه وتعالى, as the Prophet ﷺ had said: ❝The supplication of any of you is answered as long as he does not get impatient and say: “I supplicated but my prayer has not been granted.”❞
📚[Saheehain. In one of the narration of Saheeh Muslim, the wording is: ❝“I supplicated and I supplicated but I do not think that my prayer will be answered.” Then he becomes frustrated and abandons supplication.❞]

6️⃣ This abandoning of supplication and giving up of hope is from bad manners and having bad thoughts about Allaah.

7️⃣ No matter how knowledgeable one is, and how pious he is, one can never reach the level of knowing Allaah’s intention and Decree. If this was not allowed for the Prophets and Messengers, then where do we stand.

8️⃣ So, don’t think that your supplication will be answered according to your terms, rather, it will be answered as per Allaah’s Wisdom and Decree.

9️⃣ Do not underestimate the power of the Du`aa, especially if one is a sincere Muslim, as Allaah تعالى said:

وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ ۖ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ ۖ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ

{And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad ﷺ) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright.}
📚[Surah al-Baqarah (2): 186]

🔟 Remember, upon us is to supplicate and upon Allaah is the response.


💠 Explanation of the Hadeeth: Being prevented from worldly possessions

Qataadah Ibn al-Nu`maan رضي الله عنه narrated that the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ said:
❝When Allaah loves a slave, He prevents him from the world, just as one of you prevents his sick (relative) from water.❞
📚 [Sunan al-Tirmidhee (2036) and graded as “Saheeh” by Shaikh al-Albaanee. Saheeh Ibn Hibbaan (669) and graded as “Saheeh as per the condition of Imaam Muslim” by Shaikh Shu`aib al-Arnaoot]


📑 Explanation:

It is from the Wisdom of Allaah سبحانه وتعالى that He afflicts His sincere believing righteous slave by preventing him from receiving some of the things of the world - the things which people think are beneficial and essential for having a comfortable life. But these afflictions serve a purpose:

1️⃣One: The afflictions are as test of Faith, as Allaah تعالى said:

أَحَسِبَ النَّاسُ أَن يُتْرَكُوا أَن يَقُولُوا آمَنَّا وَهُمْ لَا يُفْتَنُونَ ‎*‏ وَلَقَدْ فَتَنَّا الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ ۖ فَلَيَعْلَمَنَّ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ صَدَقُوا وَلَيَعْلَمَنَّ الْكَاذِبِينَ

{Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: “We believe” and will not be tested. And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allaah will certainly make (it) known (the truth of) those who are true and will certainly make (it) known (the falsehood of) those who are liars, (although Allaah knows all that before putting them to test).}
📚 [Surah al-`Ankaboot (29): 2-3]

And there are other similar Aayaat.

2️⃣Two: The afflictions are for purifying the person of his sins, like how impurities are removed from gold and other precious metals.

Mus`ab bin Sa`d narrated from his father that a man said: O Messenger of Allaah ﷺ! Which of the people is tried most severely? He ﷺ said: ❝The Prophets, then those nearest to them, then those nearest to them. A man is tried according to his (firmness in) religion; if he is firm in his religion, then his trials are more severe, and if he is frail in his religion, then he is tried according to the strength of his religion. The servant shall continue to be tried until he is left walking upon the earth without any sins.❞
📚 [Sunan al-Tirmidhee (2398) and Sunan Ibn Maajah (4023) and graded as “Hasan-Saheeh” by Shaikh al-Albaanee]

3️⃣Three: It is a great favor from Allaah:

The Messenger of Allaah ﷺ said: ❝When Allaah has previously decreed for a servant a rank which he has not attained by his action, He afflicts him in his body, or his property or his children. So that He may bring him to the rank previously decreed for him by Allaah.❞
📚 [Sunan Abu Dawood (3090), and graded as "Saheeh" by al-Albaanee in al-Saheehah (2599)]

When a person whom Allaah loves fails to reach the rank that was decreed for him by Allaah because of his own shortcomings, then Allaah puts him in trials so that his rank is elevated.

So, when Allaah intends to do good to a person, he afflicts him. As the Prophet ﷺ had said: ❝If Allaah wants to do good to somebody, He afflicts him with trials.❞
📚 [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (5645)]

A person who has been afflicted might not see or understand the reason why he is being prevented, nor does he know the reward he is receiving because of his patience.

In this Hadeeth, the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ said: ❝When Allaah loves a slave, He prevents him from the world...❞, meaning: He تعالى keeps him away from everything that is harmful to him in his religious affairs and worldly matters.

Allaah تعالى prevents a person from some of the wordly possession, or wealth, or some high position, or from anything of this world which would be harmful for him, or whose consequences would be disasterous.

Allaah تعالى also prevents this from the person so that the person’s heart is not attached to the glamours of this world. As most people with sick hearts are those who are deceived by the worldly glitters, or those whose love for the world is ever great.

❝ Like the way one of you prevents his sick one from water.❞, meaning: like how one of you prevents your sick ones from drink water or eating certain food which might be harmful for them in their illness. For example, people suffering from jaundice are prescribed not to eat oily food or that are high in fats, or the one who had gone under surgery are prevented from eating solid food, etc. This is to prevent him from getting even more sick, and as a means to recover quickly.

The example of water has been mentioned here because water is one of the cheapest commodity and it is found in abundance, and no one behaves miserly with giving water to others to drink. But if a person is sick and the doctor has prescribed that water should not be given to him, his family will prevent him from consuming water, not out of hatred but out of love for him.

Similarly, to Allaah the world has no value and He تعالى spends on His creation day and night without anything being reduced from His treasures. Yet, out of love for His slaves, He تعالى prevents then from having certain things so that it does not harm them, in regards to their Deen, Dunya, and Aakhirah.

This is a prophetic teaching, guidance for the Muslims, and as a means to keep them firm upon the religion during hardships. All this takes place by the Will of Allaah and His Decree. So, a person should not be alarmed by it. Rather, he should ponder over the Wisdom of Allaah, and be patient during the hardships, and be at ease that whatever Allaah has decided for him is only good and beneficial.

From this Hadeeth, one also learns that when Allaah تعالى prevents a thing from His righteous slaves, it is not because He is angry at them, or displeased with them, rather, it is because He تعالى loves them and is preventing from them that which is harmful for them in the wordly matter or in regards to their Hereafter.
