Human Dignity

Guidance - II

Ibn Masud relates that the Holy Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be to him) said, “If anyone is in need and ask people to meet it, he will not be permanently relieved of his trouble. But if he seeks God’s help, he will be soon relieved or he will meet his death if the appointed time is at hand or God will give him prosperity some time later.”

(Abū Daud, Tirmidhi)

Allah has blessed man with a strong sense of dignity. This He has done by putting an end to slavery, by fulfilling all human needs and even by encouraging man to turn to Him alone whenever he happens to stand in need. When a person turns to some of his fellow beings for something he needs, he may be relieved of his trouble or need but not permanently. When a needy person looks to others for relief, his dignity gets injured.

In contrast, the Lord, who is the Creator and Sustainer, can help the needy, when he turns to Him, in the best way and creates a situation in which he finds himself permanently relieved. Thus he stands relieved as well as his dignity remains intact. The hadith encourages man to turn to his Lord, for only He can grant him relief from troubles. Maybe, his troubles are not met as he wishes, for God, who is All-knowing, knows his well-being better than he himself knows. If God so wishes for him, he would meet his death or God will give him prosperity some time later.
