By His Mercy, it’s Coming

You feel like your dua isn’t being answered? But maybe what you’re asking for, just maybe- your heart is not fully ready to receive it, not fully prepared to experience the blessing in its full measure. Not only does Allah answer our dua in terms of its content, but very importantly- He does so with knowledge of its immaculate timing.

So in the process of it all, embrace the wait.
What’s for you is coming.
By His Mercy, it’s coming.

    If We had sent down this Qur’an upon a mountain, you would have seen it humbled and coming apart from fear of Allah. And these examples We present to the people that perhaps they will give thought. (Quran 59:21)

    If we take these words literally for a moment, then…

    ‘… How is the Divine Inspiration revealed to you?” Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) replied, “Sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a bell, this form of Inspiration is the hardest of all and then this state passes off after I have grasped what is inspired…’ (Bukhari 1:2)

    ‘Ibn ‘Abbas in the explanation of the statement of Allah “Move not your tongue concerning (the Quran) to make haste therewith.” (75.16) said “Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) used to bear the revelation with great trouble…’ (Bukhari 1:5)

    Knowledge that does not benefit truly is destructive; it can destroy an individual from the inside long before anyone else can try. Likewise, so too can Allah’s Mercy when it is rushed, but for this I love Surah Al-Sharh.

    ‘Did We not expand for you, [O Muhammad], your breast? (1) And We removed from you your burden, (2) Which had weighed upon your back, (3) And raised high for you your repute. (4) For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease. (5) Indeed, with hardship [will be] ease. (6) So when you have finished [your duties], then stand up [for worship]. (7) And to your Lord direct [your] longing. (8)’

    ‘… Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship…’ (Quran 2:185)
