Escape to Allah

Assalamualaikum. Now were in the few last days of Ramadhan and I Felt like sharing something to you.

so here it is.


He said to them, so escape ( Run away) to Allah. I am from him to you … a warner, I warn you about Him, so run away to Him in order to protect yourself from Him.

And Rasulullah (S.A.W) used to make this famous dua’ :
                “Oh Allah I seek refuge in You from You”

Rasulullah (S.A.W) after one of the battle that happened here were some captive and the muslims have to look after them and there were this mother who was running from child to child, from baby too baby trying to find her own child. She was so hysterical about finding her child until finally she found her child and she hugged her child so intensely.

The messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) was watching this with awe, with compassion, with emotion and he said to his companions:
                “Do you think that this mother would ever grab her child and throw it in the fire? And burn it?

They said, never. It would’ve never crossed our mind and he said (S.A.W),
                “Allah is more merciful to his servants than this mother to her own child.”

There is nothing greater than the mercy of Allah (SWT) and nothing can be compared to it and Allah will refuse to put anyone in the fire, just like that unless they truly, truly, truly deserve it.

Rasulullah (S.A.W) tells us, this hadis is in sahih Muslim; he says that Allah (SWT) he created Rahma (mercy) between us and he took it from himself and he gave us one portion of it and left 99 of this portion to be used in the hereafter. And he left a small portion of it for us to use in the world and because of this Rahma which he placed on earth.

This is why you find even the animal mother will be so compassionate while its baby comes to drink from its milk. It is so careful that it doesn’t step on it’s child.

Who taught this animal to be compassionate to its baby?

To give it from it’s body it’s milk and is so careful not to thread on it.

Who gave it this mercy?

Allah (S.W.T).

Because of this mercy even the enemy of Allah (S.W.T) drinks from the water of this earth, is given his or her comfort. This is the mercy of Allah (S.W.T).

This nurturing thing that when you remember your parents that Allah has greater mercy than your own parents.
This nurturing nature of the mother and the father they would rather the dust particle enter into their eyes than into yours.

That is they were to wake up in the middle of the night and find that you are ill or sick. They would wish that the sickness was in them instead of you.

This Rahma which makes the mother carry you in her womb for nine months and then after that breastfeed you and Allah knows, there is so much pain in doing so. Only a mother understands. After that nurturing you and going through all the agony and possibly getting diabetes and discs in her back while the father runs around trying to provide you their whole youth is spent on you and the whole world stops when you are born.

For this reason we are called an Ummah taken from the name ‘Umm’ because we might as well be one mother.
All of this is due to the Rahma of Allah (S.W.T)

When you see your mother and father being like that towards you, Allah tells us a lot about our parents. You know why?

He is telling us indirectly about himself.

He’s saying see how I’ve given you your parents. See how I have created this natural Rahma inside of them, how they see you as the most important thing for them in the whole world in the entire universe. They would rather them die than you die.

See this which I create in your parents, well this is only a tiny speck of the portion of my mercy. It is my attribute of mercy and I’ve given a little bit of it to your parents just to give you a small example of who I am.

So when your mother or father they keep away something from you only in order to teach you to become stronger in life. They are nurturing you.

When you prevent your child who is two years old from opening the fridge, are you preventing them from eating or drinking?

No.

But you’re preventing them from eating things that are bad for them. From grabbing the jar and it breaks on their foot and the glass will go into their feet or they might grab the vinegar and drink it thinking it’s water.
 Or they might open the cupboard under the sink and drink the detergent thinking it’s water or food and poison themselves.

You are nurturing them, you are preventing them from certain things because you have Rahma towards your children. So don’t ever think that when Allah prevents us from something it doesn’t mean that Allah (S.W.T) is punishing us.

He is nurturing us.

Because we don’t know any better.
