Think before you test Allah!!

My Mom was talking to one of her young female students and she is always counseling them as that is her profession and she is very good at it. This young student was going on and on about how independent she was and how self-sufficient she was and how she didn't need anything or anybody and so my Mom told me that she told her that you shouldn't say that because you don't know what will happen to you tomorrow and so it came about that the young lady did need help, but who is to know if she will gain the wisdom that my Mom imparted or take notice of the words of Allah regardless of what form they may take or who may utter them. The Quran has this to say about it.

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Raheem

92:1 By the Night as it conceals (the light);


92:2 By the Day as it appears in glory;


92:3 By (the mystery of) the creation of male and female;-


92:4 Verily, (the ends) ye strive for are diverse.


92:5 So he who gives (in charity) and fears ((Allah)),


92:6 And (in all sincerity) testifies to the best,-


92:7 We will indeed make smooth for him the path to Bliss.


92:8 But he who is a greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient,


92:9 And gives the lie to the best,-


92:10 We will indeed make smooth for him the path to Misery;


92:11 Nor will his wealth profit him when he falls headlong (into the Pit).


92:12 Verily We take upon Ourselves to guide,


92:13 And verily unto Us (belong) the End and the Beginning.


92:14 Therefore do I warn you of a Fire blazing fiercely;


92:15 None shall reach it but those most unfortunate ones


92:16 Who give the lie to Truth and turn their backs.


92:17 But those most devoted to Allah shall be removed far from it,-


92:18 Those who spend their wealth for increase in self-purification,


92:19 And have in their minds no favour from anyone for which a reward is expected in return,


92:20 But only the desire to seek for the Countenance of their Lord Most High;


92:21 And soon will they attain (complete) satisfaction.



And again Allah chastises the Self-Sufficient here

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Raheem


96:1 Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created-


96:2 Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood:


96:3 Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,-


96:4 He Who taught (the use of) the pen,-


96:5 Taught man that which he knew not.


96:6 Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds,


96:7 In that he looketh upon himself as self-sufficient.


96:8 Verily, to thy Lord is the return (of all).


96:9 Seest thou one who forbids-


96:10 A votary when he (turns) to pray?


96:11 Seest thou if he is on (the road of) Guidance?-


96:12 Or enjoins Righteousness?


96:13 Seest thou if he denies (Truth) and turns away?


96:14 Knoweth he not that Allah doth see?


96:15 Let him beware! If he desist not, We will drag him by the forelock,-


96:16 A lying, sinful forelock!


96:17 Then, let him call (for help) to his council (of comrades):


96:18 We will call on the angels of punishment (to deal with him)!


96:19 Nay, heed him not: But bow down in adoration, and bring thyself the closer (to Allah.!

  1. I agree that's why I will always say "I don't need anybody, because Allah is enough for me".

  3. No matter if you need someone or not....we must remember that we are accountable for our deeds and actions. Allah is enough, yes......but take care of how you tread in the dunya. Allah will ask us.

    I like this change in your posting.....reminders are often needed. This benefits the soul.....

  4. you said:

    "or if I am incarcerated for the rest of my life"

    She must have SOME kind of evidence against you.

    At the very least-emotional cruelty.
