The greatest type of expanding:


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Therefore, scholars said: The greatest act of expanding by Allah is expanding mercy within the hearts, illuminating them and bringing them out of the darkness of sins.

{Is one whose heart Allah has opened to Islam, so he is enligh tened by his Lord [like a disbeliever]?...}

[Surat az - Zumar: 22]

{Whoever Allah wills to guide, He opens his heart to Islam...}

[Surat al - An‘ām: 125 ]

And its opposite occurs in the verse that says:

{And whoever He wills to lead astray, He makes his heart tight and constricted, as if he were climbing up into the sky}

[Surat al - An‘ām: 125]

In another verse, Allah Almighty says:

{Say, “My Lord extends provisi on to whom He wills or restricts it, but most people do not know”.}

[Surat Saba’: 36]

He also says:

{Your Lord ext ends provision to whom He wills or restricts it. He is All - Aware and All - Seeing of His slaves.}

[Surat al - Isrā’: 30]

He informs us that expanding and constricting lie in His Hand and are subject to His will and predestination. He expands for whomever He wills his wealth, good health, lifespan, or knowledge - or constricts it. He is the All-Wise, the All-Aware. The abundance you see the enemies of Allah enjoying is not an act of expanding, but in fact a plot to gradually drag them to their ruin.The believer ma
y be deprived of something, yet this is in fact a gift for him; and he may be given something, and this is not but a trial for him.

{But it maybe that you dislike something which is good for you, and you like something which is bad for you.}

[Surat al - Baqara h: 216]
