Ramadan 2019/1440: Thought of the Day 14

The quote for Day 14 of Ramadan from my box of things to think about is:

“Allah is enough for you. You do not need anything else or ask anyone for anything.”

Alhamdulillah – that’s a mantra for life if ever I have heard one – “Allah is enough”
Struggling to make ends meet - “Allah is enough”
Feel insecure and lack confidence - “Allah is enough”
Family don’t approve of your choices - “Allah is enough”

The quote reminds me of a hadith:

The Prophet (Salla-Allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said; “Whoever makes the Aakhirah his concern, Allah will gather together his affairs, place contentment in his heart and the world will come to him despite his reluctance. And whoever makes the Dunya his concern, Allah will scatter his affairs, put poverty before him and nothing of the world will come to him except what Allah has written for him.” (Reported by At-Tirmidhee and authenticated by Al-Albani)

How do we make the aakhirah our concern?

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (Salla-Allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said, “Remember often the destroyer of pleasures,” by which he meant death (Sunan al-Tirmidhī 2307)

The following ayah about how Allah (SWT) provides is so inspiring and heartening:

“And He (Allah) will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish his purpose. Indeed Allah has set a measure for all things.” – Quran 65:3

So little to ask – to place your trust in Allah (SWT) and so much to gain – that He will take care of all of your affairs insh’Allah.
