Ayah 21

Surah Al-Mulk, Ayah 21

Reflection Questions:

1. Who provides for us? If He were to withhold His provision from you, who is there that could send it to you?
2. People are unable to provide for themselves, so how can they provide for others?
3. Are we from the arrogant ones who defy His commands and turn away from the truth?

Practical tips:

1. Make du’a for provision.
2. Work hard and trust Allah at the same time for He is our provider.

وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْرًا

And give him sustenance from whence he thinks not; and whoever trusts in Allah, He is sufficient for him; surely Allah attains His purpose; Allah indeed has appointed a measure for everything.
[65:3]

Umar ibn al-Khattab reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “If you were to rely upon Allah with reliance due to him, he would provide for you just as he provides for the birds. They go out in the morning with empty stomachs and return full.”
[Tirmidhī]

It is reported by Anas ibn Mâlik:
 A man said to the Prophet ﷺ: ‘Oh Messenger of Allah!  Should I tie my camel and trust in Allah, or should I leave her untied and trust in Allah?’ The Prophet replied: ‘Tie her and trust in Allah’.  [Tirmidhi]

It was narrated by Ibn Maajah (925) from Umm Salamah that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ used to say, when he said the salaam at the end of Fajr prayer: “Allaahumma inni as’aluka rizqan tayyiban, wa ‘ilman naafi’an, wa ‘amalan mutaqabbalan (O Allaah, I ask you for good (halaal) provision, beneficial knowledge and accepted good deeds).” 

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْمًا نَافِعًا , وَ رِزْقًا طَيَّبًا , وَ عَمَلاً مُتَقَبَّلاً

[Ibn Majah]
