The adequate answer..


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Al-Suddi said: “The prophets and the believers would be killed in worldly life although they were helped (by Allah). The people who did this to the prophets and the believers would not die until Allah send other people through whom He would take revenge for those who had been killed. Thus, the obscurity in this verse is cleared.”

There is another obscurity cited by some people regarding the verse that says:

{...And Allah will never give the disbelievers a way over the believers.}

[Surat an - Nisā’: 141]

“The prophets and the believers would be killed in worldly life although they were helped (by Allah). The people who did this to the prophets and the believers would not die until Allah send other people through whom He would take revenge for those who had been killed. Thus, the obscurity in this verse is cleared.”

There is another obscurity cited by some people regarding the verse that says:

{...And Allah will never give the disbelievers a way over the believers.}

[Surat an - Nisā’: 141]

There is no obscurity in this regard as far as the Hereafter is concerned.

But with regard to worldly life, the answer is as Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:

“If their faith weakens, their enemies get a way against them in proportion to the decrease in their faith.”Indeed, the believer is endowed with honor, dominance, help, and victory:

{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]ir: 51]

What we see today, as the disbelievers are stronger and dominant over the believers, is due to what the Muslims did to their religion by way of adding thereto or omitting therefrom. 

If they repent, their faith will be complete and help will come to them from their Lord:

{This is the promise of Allah. All ah never breaks His promise...}

[Surat ar - Rūm: 6]

The price for help is faith, preparation, and patience.

Allah Almighty says:{...For it is incumbent upon Us to help the believers.}

[Surat ar - Rūm: 47]

He also says:{Prepare against them whatever force you can...}

[Surat al - Anfā l: 60]

And He says:

{...But if you keep patient and fear Allah, their schemes will not harm you in the least...}

[Surat Ᾱ l ‘Imrān: 120]

And the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“... And victory comes with patience.”

[Na rrated by Ahmad; Sahīh (authentic)]

Thereupon, help comes down from Allah, the Supporter, the Helper, Who says:

{...Victory only comes from Allah, the All - Mighty, the All - Wise.}

[Surat Ᾱ l ‘Imrān: 126]

He also says:

{If Allah helps you, none can overcome you...}

[Surat Ᾱ l ‘Imrān : 160]

“If their faith weakens, their enemies get a way against them in proportion to the decrease in their faith.” Indeed, the believer is endowed with honor, dominance, help, and victory:

{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]

What we see today, as the disbelievers are stronger and dominant over the believers, is due to what the Muslims did to their religion by way of adding thereto or omitting therefrom. If they repent, their faith will be complete and help will come to them from their Lord:

{This is the promise of Allah. Allah never breaks His promise...}

[Suratar - Rūm: 6]

The price for help is faith, preparation, and patience. Allah Almighty says:

{...For it is incum bent upon Us to help the believers.}

[Suratar - Rūm: 47]

He also says: {Prepare against them whatever force you can...}

[Surat al - Anfāl: 60]

{...But if you keep patient and fear Allah, their schemes will not harm you in the least...}

[Surat Ᾱ l ‘Imrān: 120]

And the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“... And victory comes with patience.”

[Narrated by Ahmad; Sahīh (authentic)]

Thereupon, help comes down from Allah, the Supporter, the Helper, Who says:

{...Victory only come s from Allah, the All - Mighty, the All - Wise.}

[Surat Ᾱ l ‘Imrān: 126]

He also says:

{If Allah helps you, none can overcome you...}

[Surat Ᾱ l ‘Imrān: 160]

If Allah is with you, who could stand against you?! And if He is against you, who could help you?! Whoever resorts to Allah Almighty, He will give him sufficiency and elevate his status:

{...And hold fast to Allah, for He is your Protector; what an excellent Protector and an excellent Helper!}

[Surat al - Hajj: 78]

{ ...And hold fast to Allah, for He is your Protector; what an excellent Protector and an excellent Helper!}

[Surat al - Hajj: 78]

Moreover, the believer loves his fellow believers and supports them even when they are distant from him in terms of place or time.

O Allah, the Helper, help us against the disbelievers.
