Allah Does Not Lose His People! A Reminder During First 10-Days Of Dul-Hijjah | Shaykh Omar Suliman

Ibrahim/ Abrahim (A.S) is an amazing figure one who we take our Ritual from our Deen, from the great-grandfather of the Prophet salallahu alaihe wasalam who resembled the prophet (Saw) and the prophet (Saw)’s way resembles his way the most.

Hajar (A.S), wife of prophet Ibrahim (A.S) put into the spiral of uncertainty and has to figure it out along the way in a very unique way to her perspective and in a way that we can all take lessons of conviction and certainty in times of deep uncertainty.

This is a story of a woman that was in the house of the Pharaoh. hajar (A.s) at that point with full conviction, full certainty.

She said that Allah is not going to lose His people. I’m not worried then complete Sakina, complete trust, complete Tranquillity. Imagine this situation here; She’s going to be left in the desert with a baby. No one around her, but she says Allah does not lose his people.

Hajar (A.s) is demonstrating the most beautiful verses about what it means to trust in moments  Of uncertainty. You expect good from Allah, Allah will give you good.

As long as you have that certainty in Allah that it doesn’t matter what your circumstances are; Allah does not lose His people.

 

Dua at Mount Safa and Mount Marwah

إِنَّ الصَّفَا وَالْمَرْوَةَ مِنْ شَعَائِرِ اللهِ

أَبْدَأُ بِمَا بَدَأَ اللهُ بِهِ

اللهُ أَكْبَرُ ، اللهُ أَكْبَرُ ، اللهُ أَكْبَرُ

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ ، أَنْجَزَ وَعْدَهُ ، وَنَصَرَ عَبْدَهُ ، وَهَزَمَ الأَحْزَابَ وَحْدَهُ

Transliteration:

innaṣ-ṣafaa wal-marwata min sha‛aa’ir-illaah

’abda’u bi maa bada’-allaahu bih

allaahu akbar, allaahu akbar, allaahu akbar

laa ilaaha ill-allaahu waḥdahu laa shareeka lah, lahul-mulku wa lahul-ḥamdu wa huwa ‛alaa kulli shay’in qadeer, laa ilaaha ill-allaahu waḥdahu, anjaza wa‛dahu, wa naṣara ‛abdahu, wa hazam-al-’aḥzaaba waḥdah

Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) said when describing the Prophet’s (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) pilgrimage: …and when he approached mount Safa he recited:

“Indeed Al-Safa and Al-Marwah are from the places of worship of Allah…”

“I begin with what Allah began with.”

…so he started with Safa and climbed it until he could see the Kabah, he then faced it and said:

“Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest.”

…and then he would say the following three times making a supplication (one should make a personal supplication) after each time:

“None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner. To Him belongs all sovereignty and praise and He is over all things omnipotent. None has the right to be worshipped except Allah alone. He fulfilled His promise, aided His slave and single-handedly defeated the allies.”

…he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) would repeat this action at Marwah.
