At the doorstep..


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

When people find all doors closed and things become really hard and distressful, and they find no refuge among other created beings, they innately turn to the Almighty Creator and seek His refuge and protection. They stand humble at His door:

{...Then when you are afflicted with hardship, to Him alone you cry out for help}

[Surat an-Nahl: 53]

Out of His generosity, bounty, and benevolence, Allah Almighty loves to be asked at times of ease and at times of hardship. If a person knows his Lord at the time of ease, He will know him when he goes through a hardship. The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is authentically reported to have said:

“Whoever likes Allah to respond to him during hardships and distress, should supplicate Him a lot during the times of ease.”

[Narrated by Al-Tirmidhi; Hasan (sound)]

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal was asked: “How much is the distance between us and the Throne of the Most Compassionate?” He replied:“A sincere supplication from a sincere heart.”
