Allah [Alone] Is Sufficient for Us, and He is the Best Disposer of Affairs [for Us].
“Allah [Alone] is sufficient for us, and He is the best Disposer of affairs [for us].”
By leaving your affairs to Allah, by depending upon Him, by trusting in His promise, by being pleased with His decree, by thinking favorably of Him, and by waiting patiently for His help, you reap some of the greater fruits of faith and display the more prominent characteristics of the believer. When you incorporate these qualities into your character, you will be at peace concerning the future, because you will depend on your Lord for everything. As a result, you will find care, help, protection, and victory.
When Prophet Ibraheem (Abraham) was placed in the fire, he said, “Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and he is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).” Thereupon, Allah made the fire to be cool, safe, and peaceful for Ibraheem. When the Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and his Companions were threatened by the impending attack of the enemy, they said words that are related in the first part of this verse:
“‘Allah [Alone] is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs [for us].’ So they returned with Grace and Bounty from Allah. No harm touched them; and they followed the good Pleasure of Allah. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty.”
No person by himself is capable of fighting against the current of misfortune, nor can he fend off the blows of disaster when they strike. This is because man was created weak and fragile. However, when in times of difficulty, the believer places his dependency and trust with his Lord; he knows that all difficulties can be overcome.
“And put your trust in Allah if you are believers indeed.”
O’ you who wish to be sincere to yourselves:depend upon the All-Mighty, the All-Rich to save you from calamity and disaster. Live your lives according to this precept:Allah Alone is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of our affairs. If you have meager means, if you are deep in debt, or if you are in any kind of worldly difficulty, call out:”Allah Alone is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of our affairs.”
If you face your enemy and are alarmed, or if you fear the misdeeds of the oppressor, say aloud:”Allah Alone is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of our affairs.”
“But Sufficient is your Lord as a Guide and Helper.”
