DUA FROM SURAH AL-E-IMRAN AYAH (26-27)

Dua- Allahumma Maalikal Mulk

🌹Prophet ﷺ taught this dua to Muadh bin Jabl and asked him to recite it. He SAW said regarding this dua that if someone has a debt equal to mountain of Uhud, Allah SWT will create the means for it to be repaid.

🌹Allah is the Maalik-al Mulk, the Lord of all dominion, the Possessor of powers and all Sovereignty belongs to Him. He is the Owner of everything.

🌹Whomever He likes, He gives dominion to him and whomsoever He likes, He takes away dominion from him. He is Lord of all Honour. Honour belongs to Him alone. He honours whomsoever He likes and He abases whomsoever He likes.

🌹As Allah is the Lord of all Power, it follows that man should consider all power a trust from Allah, and should use that power according to the directions given by Him.

🌹Honour, privilege, status and leadership in the world have to be earned through devotion and hard work. Leadership is an ‘amanah’, Trust, from Allah. If a person or a group entrusted with authority tampers with this Trust, then Allah snatches leadership and gives to those who are better and more deserving.

🌹In Allah’s Hand is all goodness. One of the meanings of ‘biyadikal khayr’ is that goodness is only in the Hands of Allah and the other meaning is that there is nothing but goodness in Allah’s hand and that He is the Source of all goodness and blessings.

🌹 Day and Night are in Allah’s control, so are the seasons – spring, summer, fall and winter.

🌹 Allah brings out the seed from the plant and the plant from the seed; the date from its seed and the date’s seed from the date.

🌹Allah gives whomever He wills innumerable amounts of wealth while depriving others from it, out of wisdom and justice. He is the Lord of abundant measure.

O Allah , Owner of Sovereignty, You give sovereignty to whom You will and You take sovereignty away from whom You will. You honor whom You will and You humble whom You will. In Your hand is [all] good. Indeed, You are over all things competent. You cause the night to enter the day, and You cause the day to enter the night; and You bring the living out of the dead, and You bring the dead out of the living. And You give provision to whom You will without account.”

🍃🌹آمین يا رب العالمين 🌹🍃

REFLECTIONS ON SURAH ALE-IMRAN

bismillah2 copy

AYAH 45 – 56 

As bearers of the final message to mankind, how eager are we to educate ourselves with the story of Isa Alayhis-salaam? Here Allah gives us a comprehensive details about him.

Allah mentions Isa alayhi-salaam’s miraculous birth, his honored status in world (dunya) and hereafter (aakhirah), out of those who are nearer to Allah. Then lists his miracles:

  • Speaking in the cradle and in maturity.
  • Knowledge of Torah and Injeeland wisdom.
  • Blowing life in birds of clay, be’izanillah.
  • Curing those who are born blind.
  • Curing the leper.
  • Raising the dead to life.
  • Knowledge of what people ate and what they stored behind.

He confirmed the message of the Torah and made religion easy for the Bani Israel.

Despite witnessing these miracles the majority disbelieved, except for a small group of disciples. Then Allah saved him from the crucifixion plot of the Jews and raised him alive.

These verses were revealed when a group of 60 Christians came from Najran. The Prophetsallulaho copy asked them these questions:

  1. Don’t you know that your Lord is all living and will never die while Jesus will face death?
  2. Do you know that the son bears a liking to his father? Allah Almighty is the Protector and Sustainer for the entire universe. Does Jesus also protect and sustain the entire universe?
  3. Do you agree that nothing in the universe is hidden from Allah? Is it also the case with Jesus?
  4. Do you know that Allah is in no need of eating, drinking or other bodily needs? While Jesus used to eat, drink and fulfill other bodily needs.

The Christians were speechless but still refused to believe because of their stubbornness. They refused the Prophet’ssallulaho copy  offer for ‘Mubahila’ for fear of Allah’s curse upon them.

After such clarity (in the Quran and Sunnah) concerning the biggest religious group in the world , we as Muslims have a responsibility to convey the truth to them. But are we fullfilling this responsibility?
