Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim!
No movement without His (Almighty Allah’s) Will!
Destur, ya Sayyidi, ya Sultanu-l Anbiya, Meded, Meded, ya Sultanu-l Awliya, Meded, ya Rijalallah…Tauba ya Rabbi…Audhu bi-llahi mina shaitani rajim, Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, la haula wa al quwatta illa bi-llahi-l ‘Aliyu-l ‘Azim…
Everything (is) reaching to Allah… Everyone (is) reaching to Allah (and) everything (is) reaching to Allah. Allah, He knows everything, where it is, He knows everyone where he is! We have a saying- old people they were saying and we were believing and also now we are believing, never changing that belief- that if (there is) no permission to move anything from its place or to change its position, (it) can’t be without His Order or (there) can’t be any movement out of His Will. Everything must be with His Will! A leaf on a tree- as old people were believing- can’t move, if its Creator, its Lord (is) not giving permission to move, or: no any bird can open its wings for flying without His permission- can’t open, can’t fly. Everything (is) under such a perfect control!
And He (Almighty) is asking that people must know this! Not to say: “I may go, I may come, I may do, I may not do”, no, everything (is) just controlled! Leave the Children of Adam- but (even) every atom can’t change its position without His Command, without His Permission. (It is) asking: “I am changing my position, oh my Lord?” its desire and (the) divine Will (are) coming (together) and (that is) making its position in another way. And that one, that atom, by itself it is impossible (for it) to ask for a changing of its position. That feeling to ask must be granted to that one. If Allah Almighty is not giving that inspiration to that atom to ask, it is impossible by itself to ask a changing for its position. Allahu Akbar! That (one) must ask and Allah must give.
A bedouin asked the Messenger of ALLAH (SâllAllâhu ‘Alâihi Wâsâllâm):
“What will save me from sins?”
The Messenger of ALLAH (SâllAllâhu ‘Alâihi Wâsâllâm) replied:
“Tears, humility and illness.”
[Related by Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal]
We hardly find anyone sinning while they’re busy crying (in repentance or otherwise).
Humility keeps one from sinning because most sins are committed out of arrogance. Others’ rights are trampled on because of our over-estimation of
our own worth. And our sins against ALLAH (Subhânâhu Wâ Ta‘âlâ) also
reflect an over-estimation of our intelligence.
We tend to look down upon illness.
We see it as an unnecessary waste of our lives.
But it may well be the blessing of ALLAH (Subhânâhu Wâ Ta‘âlâ).
If it is restraining us from sinning it is a blessing indeed.
