Al-Matīn (The Strong)

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: “A man became needy and he got out to the wilderness. Thereupon, his wife said: ‘O Allah, provide for us so that we can make dough and bread.’

When he returned, he found the bowl full of dough, something was being roasted in the furnace, and the hand mill was operating. He asked: ‘Where has this come from?’ She replied: ‘From the provision of Allah.’ He then swept what was around the hand mill.

Thereupon, the Prop het (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:

‘If he had left it, it would have continued to revolve -or grind -till the Day of Judgment.’”

[Narrated by Al-Tabarāni in Al-Mu‘jam al-Awsat; Sahīh (authentic)]

This is a message to anyone who has be enhit by distress, weakness, difficulties, and tough living. Rejoice and expect imminent relief, clear support, ease, and strength.

{[It is] the promise of Allah. Allah does not fail in His promise...}

[Surat ar-Rūm: 6]

We shall pause here with one of the beautiful names of Allah, namely “Al-Matīn”.

{Indeed, it is Allah Who is the All-Provider, Lord of Power, the Mighty.}

[Surat adh-Dhāriyāt: 58]

Our Lord, Exalted be He, is the Strong.

He possesses unlimited power and strength. His strength is boundless and end less, and He never suffers any difficulty or fatigue in whatever He does. All might belongs to Him, He has full power over His affairs, and He is the Omnipotent Who never experiences inability
