Recognise your Benefactor!
Every second of our existence depends completely on the grace of Allah SWT. We should recognise Who our Benefactor is, and this recognition demands that we surrender ourselves to Allah SWT with complete obedience. It is from Allah Ta’ala’s additional grace upon us that despite our disobedience He continues to provide for us, shower us with His Mercy and grants us countless opportunities to return to Him. A father who has so much love and compassion for his children will cut their privileges when they are disobedient. Yet Allah Rabbul Izzat continues to bestow His favours upon even the most disobedient of His servants. Fir’aun claimed godhood, yet was blessed with such good health, having not a single headache in four hundred years! Ibraheem AS did not feed the old man who refused to take the name of Allah before eating. Allah SWT instructed Ibraheem AS to find and feed the man who Allah Himself had fed for all his life despite his disbelief. From the examples of the drunken youth and Ibraheem bin Adham (R), and the Christian Priest and Sayyidina Abdul Qadir Jilani (R) it is seen how Allah SWT can change the heart of a person, and elevate them to highest level of Piety in an instant. Nabi-e-Kareem (SAW) made dua and placed his hand on the chest of the youth seeking permission to commit adultery, completely transforming his heart. Allah Ta’ala has left the door of Hidayah (guidance) open, therefore we should never look down upon anyone who is sinful. Rather we should be compassionate, and have concern and desire for the Hidayah of all.
