Intent Of Divine Assistance
LESSON # 420 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Intent Of Divine Assistance
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse –126 & 127 of 200, Section –13 (First-Fourth of Part – 4)
126. And Allah ordained this only as a message of good cheer for you, and that thereby your hearts might be at rest. And victory cometh only from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise-
127. That He may cut off a part of those who disbelieve, or overwhelm them so that they retire, frustrated.
126. Wa maa ja-‘alahul-laahu ‘illaa bushraa lakum wa litat-ma-‘inna quluubukum- bih. Wa mannasru ‘illaa min ‘indillaa- hil-‘Aziizil-Hakiim.
127. Li-yaqta-‘a tara-fam-minallaziina kafaruuu ‘aw yakbitahum fa-yanqalibuu khaaa-‘ibiin.
The help of Allah Almighty reached in the form of angles (peace be upon them) and all the invisible stuff were provided so that fear and confusion from the hearts of Muslims begone and they acquire peace and satisfaction. Otherwise, help of Allah Almighty is neither needy of such things, nor bound of motives. His command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says unto it: Be! and it is, or when He wishes, disgrace and abject the Infidels without any battle. The help, which Angels (peace be upon them) cause to reach, cannot do so without permission and power of Allah Almighty. Allah is the Mighty and the Overcoming. He is the Wise and Knows very well that which type of means would be suitable to effect His purpose.
It is our observation from the daily life that the results and events manifest from the particular motives. For example, the thirst is quenched with drinking water, the cure of hunger is taking food, the death happens when the heartbeat stops. This law has too much big universal status that believing in it has become part of the humankind’s faith. When and where any result occurs, the people begin to discover its reason. Likewise, if any person wants to produce a special result or particular situations, then he brings into effect necessary causes for them. Similarly, it has become human being’s belief that no result can be out without motives. Whereas, it is the fact that a very Mighty and Wise Power is working behind this law, the Hand of Allah Almighty is working behind the relation of motives and results.
Having trust in the apparent motives is the sign of our belief’s weakness. If Allah Almighty wills then the result can be produced without any apparent motive. The promise of Angle’s help (peace be upon them) in the Battle of Badr reminds us that instead of trusting in the apparent motives, we should have perfect trust in complete Divine Power (Omnipotence) of Allah Almighty.
