Broader Picture of the Dzatiyah Concept XVII

In the light of the above, there is no reason for us to resent the test imposed on us and disparaged God for it.

Now, as for man, when his Lord trieth him, giving him honor and gifts, then saith he, (puffed up), “My Lord hath honored me.” But when He trieth him, restricting his subsistence for him, then saith he (in despair), “My Lord hath humiliated me!” [126]

They have not estimated Allah with the estimation that is due to Him; most surely Allah is Strong, Mighty. [127]

None understand them but the learned. [128]

Say: Are those who know and those who do not know alike? Only the men of understanding are mindful. [129]

As to those who were steadfast in their belief in the face of trial and tribulation, their descendants have the opportunity to be the Vicegerent of God in the distant future.

Allâh chose Adam, Noah, the family of Abraham and the family of ‘Imrân above the ‘Alamîn (mankind and jinn). They were descendants one of another. Allah is Hearer, Knower.[130]

We gave him Isaac and Jacob: all (three) We guided: and before him We guided Noah, and among his progeny, David, Solomon, Job, Joseph, Moses, and Aaron: thus do We reward those who do good: And Zakariya and John and Jesus and Elias: all in the ranks of the Righteous: And Ismail and Elisha and Jonah and Lut: and to all We gave favour above the nations: (To them) and to their fathers, and progeny and brethren: We chose them. And We guided them to a straight way.[131]

We blessed him (Abraham) and Isaac: but of their progeny are (some) that do right, and (some) that obviously do wrong, to their own souls.[132]

Those were some of the prophets on whom Allah did bestow His Grace? of the posterity of Adam, and of those whom We carried (in the Ark) with Noah, and of the posterity of Abraham and Israel? of those whom We guided and chose.[133]

O Noah! come down (from the Ark) with Peace from Us, and Blessings on thee and on some of the Peoples (who will spring) from those with thee.[134]

O ye that are sprung from those whom We carried (in the Ark) with Noah! verily he was a devotee most grateful.[135]

But none believed in Musa except the offspring of his people[136]

Then we fulfilled the promise unto them. So we delivered them and whom We would, and We destroyed the prodigals.[137]

O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you.[138]

To this end, Prophet Abraham had supplicated God to the effect:

Our Lord! Make of us Muslims bowing to Thy (Will) and of our progeny a people Muslim bowing to Thy (Will).[139]

To this end, Prophet Zachariah had supplicated God to the effect:

My Lord! Bestow upon me of Thy bounty goodly offspring. Lo! Thou art the Hearer of Prayer.[140]

To the supplication of the believers who are steadfast in their belief, God had commanded to the effect:

Never will I suffer to be lost the work of any of you, be he male or female. You are offspring of one of another. [141]

And those who pray “Our Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous.” Those are the ones who will be rewarded with the highest place in heaven because of their patient constancy; therein shall they be met with salutations and peace.[142]

O mankind! reverence your Guardian-Lord Who created you from a single person, created, of like nature, his mate and from them twain scattered (like seeds) countless men and women.[143]

Those who are steadfast in their belief have held a most trusting and trustworthy hand-hold.

Truth stands out clear from Error; whoever rejects Evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.[144]

Whoever submits his whole self to Allah, and is a doer of good, has grasped indeed the trustworthy hand-hold.[145]

Who can be better in religion than one who submits his whole self to Allah.[146]

Verily never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change it themselves.[147]

Whatever of misfortune striketh you, it is what your right hands have earned.[148]

Whatever of good befalleth thee (O man) it is from Allah, and whatever of ill befalleth thee it is from thyself.[149]

Hold on to this trusting and trustworthy hand-hold even to our grave. By doing so, our descendants have the chance to be God‘s Vicegerents in the distant future.

And this was the legacy that Abraham left to his sons and so did Jacob; “O my sons! Allah hath chosen the faith for you; then die not except in the state of submission (to Allah).”[150]

Nay! were you witnesses when death visited Yaqoub, when he said to his sons: What will you serve after me? They said: We will serve your god and the god of your fathers, Ibrahim and Ismail and Ishaq, one Allah only, and to Him do we submit. [151]

And Moses said: O my people! If ye have believed in Allah then put trust in Him, if ye have indeed surrendered (unto Him)![152]

(Wizards of Pharaoh), “Our Lord! Vouchsafe unto us steadfastness and make us die as men who have surrendered (unto Thee).”[153]

O my dear son! Establish worship and enjoin kindness and forbid iniquity, and persevere whatever may befall thee. Lo! that is of the steadfast heart of things.[154]

Satans and his cronies will endeavour to persuade you to lose your grasp on the trusting and trustworthy hand-hold because they have no hold onto those who have submitted himself wholeheartedly to God’s Will. It is better to die in submission rather then giving Satan the upper hand.

But if they dispute with you, say: I have submitted myself entirely to Allah.[155]

Say: Shall we cry, instead of unto Allah, unto that which neither profiteth us nor hurteth us, and shall we turn back after Allah hath guided us, like one bewildered whom the devils have infatuated in the earth, who hath companions who invite him to the guidance (saying): Come unto us? Say: Lo! the guidance of Allah is Guidance, and we are ordered to surrender to the Lord of the Worlds.[156]

O ye who believe! Observe your duty to Allah with right observance, and die not save as those who have surrendered (unto Him). [157]

Bear then patiently what they say, and glorify your Lord by the praising of Him before the rising of the sun and before its setting, and during hours of the night do also glorify (Him) and during parts of the day, that you may be well pleased.[158]

Remember Satans and his cronies have no power over you once you held steadfastly to God.

No authority has he over those who believe and put their trust in their Lord. [159]

If Allah is your helper none can overcome you, and if He withdraw His help from you, who is there who can help you after Him? In Allah let believers put their trust. [160]

O ye who believe! Remember Allah’s favours unto you, how a people were minded to stretch out their hands against you but He withheld their hands from you; and keep your duty to Allah. In Allah let believers put their trust.[161]

So remain steadfast during the trial and tribulation and fear God and nothing else.

They only are the (true) believers whose hearts feel fear when Allah is mentioned, and when revelations of Allah are recited unto them they increase their faith, and who trust in their Lord.[162]

Say: Allah sufficeth me. There is no God save Him. In Him have I put my trust, and He is Lord of the Tremendous Throne.[163]

In due time, God will have His skillful and well-tested Vicegerents who would rule the Outer Space and its inhabitants and made the latter worship God, the only one true God.

Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion – the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace: ‘They will worship Me (alone) and not associate aught with Me.’[164]

For Allah will surely accomplish His purpose: verily, for all things has Allah appointed a due proportion.[165]

They who turn (to Allah), who serve (Him), who praise (Him), who fast, who bow down, who prostrate themselves, who enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil, and who keep the limits of Allah; and give good news to the believers.[166]

And We made his offspring the survivors.[167]

It is He Who hath made you the inheritors of the earth: He hath raised you in ranks, some above others.[168]
