Being in the company of Allah


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

When the believer takes his share in Allah’s name “Al-Khabīr”, he enjoys the company of his Lord and, consequently, He elevates and purifies him and makes him more preoccupied with this company than with anything else. He also makes him constantly fearful and heedful of the Almighty Creator, grants him self-sufficiency, subjects the worldly life to him, and blesses whatever He provides for him. Such a person will be safe from anxiety and distress, and the devil cannot find a way to him. Allah Almighty says:

{...And whoever fears Allah, He will make for him a way out.}

[Surat at-Talāq: 2]

O my Lord Who sees and hears what is within people’s hearts and consciences, O You from Whom we seek relief from our hardships! I have no means but my humble submission before You and my need for You, as I knock on Your door. Exalted are You far above turning down a sinner who turns to You in repentance.

O Allah, You are the Best ower of every blessing that we expect, and to You we all resort and in You we seek refuge from every fear, need, and distress. If You reject us, we will not find another door to knock on; and You are the Owner of supreme bounty and grace.

O Allah, the All-Aware, show us kindness; indeed, You know our innermost thoughts and what lies concealed within our consciences.
