Complete benevolence


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

The greatest benevolence Allah bestows upon His servants is guiding them to this religion and making them inclined and steadfast on it till death.

{Indeed, Allah is with those who fear Him and those who do good.}

[Surat an - Nahl: 128]

Leading His close servants to a good and safe life:

{Whoever does righteous deeds, male or female, while being a believer, We will surely grant him a good life, and We will surely reward them according to the best of their deeds.}

[Surat an - Nahl : 97]

Removing the distress of His close servants and saving them from adversities. Yūsuf (Joseph) (peace be upon him) is quoted in the Qur’an as saying:

{...My Lord is gracious to whom He wills...}

[Surat Yūsuf: 100]

Then, His perfect benevolence towards His close servants will be displayed in the Hereafter. That is the highest benevolence, and even more. Allah Almighty says:

{For those who do good there will be the best reward and more...}

[Surat Yūnus: 26]

{Indeed, Allah is with those who fear Him and those who do good.}

[Surat an - Nah l: 128]

Leading His close servants to a good and safe life:

{Whoever does righteous deeds, male or female, while being a believer, We will surely grant him a good life, and We will surely reward them according to the best of their deeds.}

[Surat an - Nahl: 9 7]

Removing the distress of His close servants and saving them from adversities. Yūsuf (Joseph) (peace be upon him) is quoted in the Qur’an as saying:

{...My Lord is gracious to whom He wills...}

[Surat Yūsuf: 100]

Then, His perfect benevolence towards His close servants will be displayed in the Hereafter. That is the highest benevolence, and even more. Allah Almighty says:

{For those who do good there will be the best reward and more...}

[Surat Yūnus: 26]

The best reward for them is Paradise.

And what is more: is looking at the Face of their Exalted Lord. Indeed, there is nothing better, more beautiful, more perfect, or more sublime than His noble Face.

Moreover, He combines for them the two kinds of reward, of this world and of the Hereafter. He says:

{So Allah gave them the reward of this world and the best reward of the Hereafter, for Allah loves those who do good.}

[Surat Ᾱ l ‘Imrān: 148]

Our Lord, Exalted be He, is the Owner of great benevolence and perfection. Hence, He perfected His Shariah and included in it the good outcomes and lofty objectives, which are beneficial for all humanity.

{...Who could be better than Allah in judgment for people who are certain in faith?}

[Surat al - Mā’idah: 50]

{So Allah gave them the reward of this world and the best reward of the Hereafter, for Allah loves those who do good.}
