Imaam al-Shaafi’i Rahimahullaah said: ‘There is nobody except that he has someone who loves him and someone who hates him. So if that’s the case, let a person be with the people who are obedient to Allaah `Azza Wa Jall.’

PostSubject: On Contentment.   Fri Jun 22, 2012 8:34 pm

Assalam alaikum,
Contentment with the Decree of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is one of the acts of worship of the Heart. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:--

''HE HAS TASTED THE SWEETNESS OF FAITH: HE WHO IS
CONTENT WITH ALLAH AS HIS LORD, ISLAM AS HIS RELIGION
AND MUHAMMAD AS HIS PROPHET''. [Muslim]

We therefore need to know that God Almighty has portioned for us...for each one...our provision. As long as we work, we get what is written for us. In this regard, the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallama, said:--

''KNOW THAT EVEN IF THE WHOLE OF COMMUNITY WERE TO GATHER
TOGETHER TO BENEFIT WITH SOMETHING, THEY WOULD NOT BENEFIT
YOU WITH ANYTHING EXCEPT THAT WHICH ALLAH HAS ALREADY RECORDED
FOR YOU, AND THAT IF THEY GATHER TOGETHER TO HARM YOU WITH SOME-
THING, THEY WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO HARM YOU WITH ANYTHING EXCEPT THAT
WHICH ALLAH HAS ALREADY RECORDED AGAINST YOU''. [Tirmidhi]

Simply possessing the knowledge should empower us, because we thereby know that everything that happens is by the permission of God Almighty. This should not prevent us from reflecting and trying to figure out how our actions played a role, but learning from an experience is part of Contentment, because you trust that God is teaching you a lesson through trial.
