We have Allah, and Allah is everything

Man surrounded by sun rays

By Wael Abdelgawad | IslamicSunrays.com

Even when we think we have nothing, we have Allah, and Allah is everything. We can be materially poor and still be wealthy beyond belief.

I’m not advocating poverty. Money has its uses. Most importantly, it can be used to help people and relieve suffering. But it is still just a tool created by men and women. An object, a thing. It can never define us, nor can it elevate us, or take us where we need to go in this life and the next.

There are things that matter more than our wallets. Allah is everything, and our relationship with Him defines us more certainly and clearly than our bank balances ever could.

If we are close to Allah, if we have a bond with Him, if we trust Him, then we have everything. We have greater security than any alarm system could provide. We have a brighter light than any chandelier. We have a clearer path than any highway. We have a truer happiness than any entertainment system, house or car could offer. We have everything.

    As salamu alaykum,

    He(swt) will provide, no doubts about it, Alhamdulillah, while growing up sometimes we lose that security, but Alhamdulillah, one way or the other comes to us again.

    The security that your words shows reflects a deep connection and understanding of the real flow of Life. But again our words gives us a responsibility and we will be tested by what we say.

    May Allah(swt) guide and keep us in the Straight Path. Ameen.

    Masalam,
    María

      So true Maria, ‘we will be tested by what we say, hence our words carry with them a weighty responsibilty’. I was thinking of you just now and then saw your words here. I read the same thing here that you said to me a month or so ago.

      Hope you’re well Sis, missing you on the website.
