EP18 | Contentment from Revelation | Ramadan Series 2019 | Mufti Menk

It is important to realize that the remembrance of Allah itself brings about contentment within the heart and the heart of a believer is that heart which will be content by the remembrance of Allah

Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah . Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.” (13:28)

So, remember to engage in what is known as Dhikrullah, Dhikrullah primarily yes, it Dhikrullah primarily yes, it is the repetition of names and qualities of Allah, praises of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala in the Arabic language in a beautiful way although we are allowed to praise Allah in any language.

In Surat Ibrahim where Allah speaks about how He will give you increase if you are thankful and if you are ungrateful He snatches away and He even punishes.

And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.’ (14:7)

Then Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala tells us something very powerful regarding

Their messengers said to them, “We are only men like you, but Allah confers favor upon whom He wills of His servants. It has never been for us to bring you evidence except by permission of Allah . And upon Allah let the believers rely. (14:11)

You need to know the same Allah that brought about daybreak after the darkest time of the night shall bring about solution to your problems after the darkest hours in your life, remember that.

Thereafter verse number 24 of surat ibrahim ALlah tells us to count His favours upon us…

And He gave you from all you asked of Him. And if you should count the favor of Allah, you could not enumerate them. Indeed, mankind is [generally] most unjust and ungrateful (14:34)

Allah blesses every single person differently. What blessing you have the one whom you’re looking at doesn’t have and what blessing they have you would not have what blessing they don’t have you have perhaps.

It’s up to us to strengthen our faith in Allah to be able to appreciate what that gift is and to show gratitude to Allah in that regard.

Then Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala tells us something very important, many of us sometimes people do wrong to us and we wonder when is Allah going to stop this wrong?

And never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only delays them for a Day when eyes will stare [in horror]. (14:42)

Allah (swt) addresses the issue of the hurting or the narrowing of the heart of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him in surah Hijr . It happens to us when people say bad things about us or to us or when people lie about us false accusation they say whatever suits them against us to tarnish our image. The most powerful advice Allah from Allah:

And we already know that your breast is constrained by what they say. So exalt [ Allah ] with praise of your Lord and be of those who prostrate [to Him]. (15:97 to 98)
