In Surah Al-Shura (42:23), Allah, Al-Ghafur (The Forgiver and Hidder of Faults) and Ash-Shakur (The Rewarder of Thankfulness, The All-Appreciative), confirms that whoever performs good, it will be increased for them. This part of the ayat comes after Allah instructing Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, to tell the people the following: “Say: ‘No reward do I ask of you for this except to love my close relatives.’” This is important because the increase in goodness from Allah will not only be given to Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, but all the believers who are kind and loving to his near relatives.

In Surah Al-Muminun (23:61), Allah, Al-Matin (The Steadfast, The Firm) in the previous ayats, describes al-muminun (The Believers). They are in awe and cautious to fulfill religious obligations and refrain from sin out of fear and respect of Allah’s Grandeur and Kindness, sincerely believe in Allah’s signs, including the Holy Qur’an, do not associate partners with their Lord, give in charity with pure anxious hearts because they know they will return to Allah and fear they may not have adequately performed their obligations. Allah, The Most High, says that these people are those who hasten to the good and they are al-sabiquna (the foremost). Al-Sabiquna can be used as those who are the forerunners in a race or competition, those who are ahead and are relentlessly outstripping the others. The believers are, therefore, in a race, a race in doing good, back to Allah, our Creator, to Whom we will all return. Because we are fearful of Allah and believe with sincerity, it makes us hurry to perform good and righteous deeds. Hastening to do good comes from knowledge, faith, sincerity and charity with an apprehensive heart. And thus, we will receive all goodness, prosperity and Divine favours here and in the Hereafter.

This ayat is speaking about our parents. We are instructed to treat our parents, even if they do not follow Allah’s Path, with kindness and do not sever our relationship with them. However, we should not obey them if they insist we deviate from Islam and follow another way.

In Surah Al-Anfal (8:24), Allah, Al-Jami’ (The Gatherer), earlier in this ayat, instructs us to answer the invitation of our Sustainer and Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family. The inviting call is what will give us life, a mental, intellectual, and spiritual life. The acceptance of the Prophet’s invitation is the same as the acceptance of Allah’s invitation. The real life lies in faith in Allah, The Majestic, and the performance of righteous deeds. To live otherwise is living a deadened existence. Allah tells us that He intervenes bayna (between) people and their hearts. This shows that Allah is aware and present everywhere, closer to us than our jugular vein and all bounties and successes belong to our Sustainer. All the activities of our soul and intellect are under Allah's Authority also. And so if we call upon Allah, in His Mercy, our Lord will intervene and cause our hearts to become pure, faithful and certain of Allah’s Majesty.

Each creature that Allah, our Creator, made is provided for according to their specific needs. This caring is a gift from Allah, The Loving. Allah is aware of the numbers and places of all people, land and marine animals, birds and desert animals, all creatures great and small, and their various specifications and knows what is suitable for each of them. This gift includes sustenance directly from our Lord and the ability to discover, acquire and utilize the provisions needed for life. This means that each creature must also work for their sustenance. While the non-human creatures know where their rizq comes from, people do not always admit that our share comes from our Lord and is in Allah’s control.

We are being warned that the wrongdoers are friends and allies of each other. They help one another against the Muslims. But Al-Wali is the committed believers’ Friend, Ally, Protector and Supporter. Al-Mutaqina refrain from wrongdoing and never follow those who deny Allah and commit sins. The disbelievers’ friendship with each other is of no avail to the committed believers. They have no power over disasters and afflictions and will not be able to even save themselves from the Hellfire. Allah, our Lord and Master, will always protect and help al-mutaqina at all times.

In Surah Ali-Imran (3:92), Allah, Al-Muqit (The Nourisher), informs us that we will never attain righteousness and piety until we spend out of what we love. There are many qualities of a person who is pious, including, but not limited to, belief in Allah, The Most High, belief in the Day of Judgement, belief in the Prophets, helping the needy people,salat (prayer), saum (fasting), fulfilling promises, steadfastness and sadaqah (charity). It is fairly easy to give away materials and wealth that we don’t need and are extra. But it is much more difficult to give away what we love. Allah, The Most Glorious, lets us know that a true test of piety is when tunfiqu (you spend) from what you love. [This bookmark entailed minute stitches, thus the higher price.]

Prophet Yaqub, peace be upon him, resolved to be patient and declared that he only complains to Allah, Al-Sami (The All-Hearing), about his suffering and sorrow in the nighttime and in private. Believers in Allah only share their troubles and secrets with the Lord. They do not keep silent, exerting pressure on their heart and nerves, jeopardizing their health, nor do they cry and moan in front of others. Instead, they dialogue and discuss with Allah Alone, are patient and put their hope in our Lord's Mercy for the future and the Hereafter. Only disbelievers despair of Allah’s Mercy.

In Surah al-Duha (93:5), after two oaths to the morning’s glorious bright light and the night’s serenity and stillness, Allah, Al-Muqaddim (The Expeditor and Advancer), informs Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, that our Lord has not forsaken him nor is not displeased with him. This ayat (verse) was revealed when the Prophet was facing hardships, torment and taunts in Makkah because he had not received revelation for a while. Thesurah (chapter) gave the Prophet much relief, hope, optimism and strength when Allah revealed to him that soon the Lord of the Worlds will give him so abundantly that he will be content, satisfied and pleased (ridwan). Allah reminds the Prophet that surely the Hereafter is better than the present life, even though he has been granted Allah’s Help, Love and Blessings throughout, even as an orphan child, lost and wandering and in need. This ayat ensures the believing steadfast Muslims that we, too, will not be forsaken by Allah, the Loving, and we will also receive blessings with which we will be well-pleased because we can expect that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, will intercede with Allah for us, inshallah (Allah Willing).

In Surah Ibrahim (Abraham) (14:7), Allah, Al-Hasib (The Reckoner and Rewarder), promises, in this explicit ayat (verse) to increase our favours and blessings if we are thankful to our Lord for them. If you are given a favour, confess within your heart that it is a blessing from Allah and thank our Lord, with praise, and Allah will add to that favour by granting you more blessings. Giving thanks to Allah includes acknowledging all blessings are from our Lord, verbally saying Al-Hamdulillahi Rabbil ‘Alamin (All Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds) and showing gratitude by worshipping Allah, seeking only our Lord's satisfaction and pleasure, avoiding sin and working in the service of people. Really thanking Allah for the favours means not attributing the favours as originating from your own intelligence, wisdom, reasoning and your or other people’s effort, but confessing that whatever exists comes from Allah, the Greatest. It also means being content with what Allah has given you, as well as not using the blessings to commit sins. Rather, we must use Allah's favours in ways which please our Lord.

In Surah al-Baqarah (2:222), Allah, Al-Tawwab (The Guide to Repentance), tells us our Lord loves those who repent. When we repent, we turn from sin and regret our disobedience of the commandments of Allah, Subhanallah (Glory be to Allah), asking our Lord for forgiveness. We acknowledge we have disobeyed Allah, feel sorry about our action, make a firm decision to not repeat it in the future and make up for what we have done. Our repentance is called tawbah. Allah also loves those who purify themselves. Purification means not being polluted by sin and refraining from disobeying Allah, The Pure and Holy. Allah loves the people who refrain from sin, but is always Forgiving of those who repent, thus giving everyone hope. Our Lord guides us to repentance and ensures us that Al-Sabur (The Most Patient) is always Loving when we are repentant.
