Allah is All-Sufficient  as  a  Disposer of affairs


In his Saheeh, Imam Bukhari related that a man from the children of Israel asked another to lend him one thousand dinars. The second man asked, ‘·Do you have a witness (for this transaction) ?” The first man replied , “I have no witness except Allah. ” The other then asked, “Do you have a guarantor? ” The man said, “I have no guarantor except Allah.” The second man said, “Allah is Ever All­ Sufficient as a Disposer of affairs.” He then gave him the thousand dinars; they parted and between them there was an agreement upon a place and time for the paying back of the loan. As it happened, they lived on opposite sides of a river. When the time drew near for the transaction , the borrower went to the shore to find a boat so that he could repay his debt. To his disappointment, he found no boat. He continued to wait until long after nightfall without succeeding in finding someone to take him across to the other side. He said, “0′ Allah , he asked me for a witness and I found no one but You he asked me for a guarantor, and I found no one but You. 0’ Allah , make this letter reach him.,. He took a piece of wood, hollowed it out, and inserted the thou sand dinars with the letter. Then he hurled the piece of wood into the river. By the permission of A llah , it floated forward according to a guided course. The lender went to the shore in keeping with the appointment. He waited for a little while, and when the other man did not come, he said to himself, “Why don ‘t I at least take some firewood for my famil y?” He passed by the piece of wood and took it home . Finding that it was hallow, he broke it open and found the money  with the letter.

And in Allah shou ld the believers put their trust.      (Qur ‘an 3: 122) And put yo ur trust  in Allah  (fyou are believers indeed. !

(Qur ‘an 5: 23)

I mention these stories here so that your faith in Allah’s promise increases , and so that you will supplicate to Him and invoke Him in solitude.  Allah  the  Almighty,  ordered  you  with  the  following:

*!Invoke Me, 1 will respond to your [invocation}.  (Qur an  40: 60)

{And when } my slaves ask y ou [0 Muhammad} concerning M e, then [answer  them}, I  am indeed  near [to them  by My Knowledge}.  1 respond  to the invocations of the supplicant  when he calls on Me [without any mediator or intercessor}.   (Qur ‘an 2:  186)
