Forms of help:


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Allah Almighty bestows His help upon His servants in various and limitless forms and types that they do not expect.

It may take the form of sending supporting angels as Allah helped His Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) and his Companions during the Battle of Badr. It may also come in the form of wind like the case of ‘Ād and the Battle of Ahzāb; or by sending birds in flocks like the case of the companions of the elephant; or by the outcry like the case of Thamūd; or by sinking into earth like the
case of Qārūn; or by throwing from a high place as happened to the people of Lūt (Lot); or by the flood like the case of the people of Nūh (Noah).

The soldiers of Allah Almighty are numberless, and He shall certainly fulfill His purpose, and He is Able to do all things.

Help may sometimes come in the form of victory over the enemies, such as the victory of Sulaymān (Solomon) and Dāwūd (David) (peace be upon both of them) and the victory of Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him).

And it may also come in the form of revenge against the deniers during the prophets’ lifetime, like the people of Noah, the people of Lot, and Pharaoh; or after their death, like enabling Bukhtanasar (Nebuchadnezzar) to overcome the killers of Prophet Yahya (John the Baptist) (peace be upon him) and enabling the Romans to overpower those who had wanted to kill ‘Isa (Jesus) (peace be upon him).

Allah Almighty says:{We will surely help Our messengers and those who believe in the life of this world and on the Day when the witnes ses will come forward.}

[Surat Ghāfir: 5 1]

{We will surely help Our messengers and those who believe in the life of this world and on the Day when the witnesses will come forward.}

[Surat Ghāfir: 51]
