Entrust your affairs to Him..

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

As the believer knows that Allah is the One, the Superb Vanquisher, he declares his submission to Him,entrusts his affairs to Him, relies upon Him, and extols none and fears none but Him. He no longer fears the helpless created beings, even if they claim to possess power and might.

When faith entered the hearts of the magicians of Pharaoh and they knew that Allah is the One, the Superb Vanquisher, their response to Pharaoh’s threat was:

{They said: “No harm. Indeed, to our Lord we will return.”}

[Surat ash-Shu‘arā’: 50]

Allah Almighty is the Vanquisher of tyrants and sinners:

{And He is the Vanquisher over His servants. And He is the All-Wise, the All-Aware.}

[Surat al-An‘ām: 18]

He Vanquished the people of Nūh (Noah) with the flood, the people of Sālih with the outcry, the people of ‘Ād with the storm, the people of Lūt (Lot) with the stones, the people of Qārūn with sinking inside the earth, the people of Saba’ with hunger, thirst, and extreme poverty, and He vanquished the Children of Israel with fear, dominance of their enemies, prevalent killings, and some of them were subject to transformation and plague.The vanquishing power of Allah Almighty is quite apparent.

{...And We did not wrong them, but they were wronging themselves.}

[Surat an-Nahl: 118]

The power of Allah dominates and crushes the power of all created beings.

{...To whom belongs sovereignty this Day? To Allah, the One, the Superb Vanquisher.}

[Surat Ghāfir: 16]

Al-Rāzi (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:“Where will the tyrants and powerful kings be when this statement will be made?

And where will the prophets, messengers, and close angels be when this reproach will be proclaimed?

Where will the people of misguidance and atheism as well as the followers of guidance and monotheism be?

Where will Adam and his progeny be?

Where will Satan and his followers be?

It is as if they will be destroyed and non-existent!

The souls depart the bodies, the bodies decay and get rotten, and all bonds are severed, and only Allah remains and will remain forever.”

Not all is sues are necessarily settled in worldly life. Some grievances will be dealt with again on the Day of Judgment. This truth is so hard and bitter for the unjust people.

{...And indeed, our return is to Allah...}

[Surat Ghāfir: 43]

Al-Shāfi‘i said:“There is a verse in the Qur’an that is considered as an arrow settled within the heart of the wrongdoers and a source of relief for the heart of the wronged.” It was

said: “What is it?” He said:“

{...And never is your Lord forgetful.}

[Surat Maryam: 64]”

O Allah, the Owner of power and might, keep us safe from the evil of the wicked and the cunning plots of the transgressors.
