The Name of Allaah, Ar-Razzaq (Part 2)

  • If you know that Allaah is the All-Provider, you will live mentally stable in this life.

All of creation, without exclusion, live in this life enjoying the provision of Allaah. Ever since the human was in the womb of his mother, Allaah has been providing for him. The compassion of the parents towards the unborn baby is a provision from Allaah. There are some parents who have no compassion, so when you see that, you know this is a provision from Allaah. Even if someone visits you, that visit is a provision from Allaah. Both spiritual and materialistic matters are provisions from Allaah.

Many parents grow old and complain that their children do not visit them. One should realize that the visit of their children; their call, their care, is a provision from Allaah. If you understand Who Allaah is, you would not become upset with people. 

Even the feelings of love, care and acceptance, are provisions from Allaah. There are people who are loved and accepted wherever they go, and there are others who are not liked wherever they go. If you understand that this love and acceptance are provisions from Allaah, you would be calm and not complain or be upset.

The Name of Allaah: Al-Malik Al-Mulk (Part 10)

Impacts of believing that Allaah is the Owner of the means

#1 – Since Allaah is the Owner of the means, we should not ask anyone to fulfill our needs except Him. Allaah created needs in us so that we would ask Him to give us the means to fulfill our needs, then to benefit us with them and give us the result of them.

#2 – Even if one possesses the means, he will not be able to benefit from it until Allaah gives the permission.

#3 – Your request is attained by taking the means, so do not let the means become a barrier between you and Allaah such that you forget Allaah and become attached to the means.

#4 – Possessing something doesn’t necessarily mean that you will gain benefit from it. Read the rest of this entry

Importance of Seeking Knowledge (featuring Allaah’s Name: Al-‘Aleem)

One of Allah’s Names is الرزاق (The Provider). Allah has two types of رزق (provision):

  1.  General
  2.  Special

Of the special رزق  – provision of Allah for His servants is beneficial knowledge. Allah is the One who grants the knowledge of Him to whomever He wills; not just anyone. We have to ask Allah to increase us in this special provision.

We are acquiring knowledge to establish Tawheed of Allah, which is the purpose behind our creation on earth.

Allah said in Surah Adh-Dhariyat [51:56]:

And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).”

The Scholars said that يعبدون means يوحدون (To single Allah out with Tawheed).

This is the goal that should occupy us day and night. There should be no moment in our lives free of worshiping Allah alone. This means that we should perpetually worship Allah with the actions of our heart.
