Unflinching Faith in Allah

Guidance - II

Abbas relates that one day he was riding on a mule behind the Blessed Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be to him) while he said: “I want to teach you something. Obey Allah and He will look after you. Safeguard His Commandments and He will ever be with you (as your protector). When you must ask, ask Allah alone. When you must seek help, seek help from Allah alone. Remember! If all mankind join to help you, they can only help you to the extent that Allah has already decreed. And if all mankind join to harm you, they cannot harm you except to the extent that Allah has already decreed for you.”

(Tirmidhi)

Here Allah’s Messenger has taught six lessons. First, believers must obey Allah, of course in each and every walk of life. The natural corollary of this unflinching obedience to Allah is that Allah looks after those who obey Him.

Second, they must safeguard the Commandments of Allah. They should follow His Commandments in words and deeds and bear witness to the Truth and invite others to do so. Resultantly, Allah will ever be with them as their Protector. Third, they must ask none but Allah for whatever they need. The fourth lesson is that for help and guidance they should turn to Allah alone.  Fifth, the fellow beings can help a believer but only to the extent that Allah has decreed. And sixth, no one can harm a believer except to the extent that Allah has already decreed for him, however united enemies are.
