Lesson # 420
The Aim of Divinely Aid
Surah ‘Aali- ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran -3), Stage – 1, Verses – 126 & 127 of 200, Section 13 of 20, (Part 1/4th of – 4)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
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-‘ala-hUllaahu ‘illaa bushraa lakum wa litat-ma-‘inna quluubukum- bih. Wa mannasru ‘illaa min ‘inDillaahil-‘Aziizil-Hakiim.
127. Li-yaqta-‘a tara-fam-minallaziina kafaruuu ‘aw yakbitahum fa-yanqalibuu khaaa-‘ibiin.
The help of God Almighty reached in the form of angles (peace be upon them) and the entire invisible means were provided so that; fear and confusion from the hearts of Muslims should be gone and they acquire peace and satisfaction. Otherwise, the Help of Allah Almighty is neither needy of such things, nor bound of reasons. His command, when He intends for a thing, is only that He says unto it: Be! And it is, or when He desires, disgrace and abject the Infidels without any battle. The help, which is sent down by means of Angels (peace be upon them), they cannot do so at their own without permission and power of Allah Almighty. Allah is the Mighty and the Overcoming. He is Wise and Knows very well that which type of means would be suitable to influence His purpose.
It is our observation in the daily life that the results and events manifest from the particular reasons. 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 consequence comes out, 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 come out without motives. Whereas, in fact, a very Mighty and Wise Power is working behind this law, the Hand of Allah Almighty has been working behind the relationship of reasons and results.
Having trust in the apparent reasons is the sign of weakness of our belief. If Allah Almighty wills, 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 reasons, we should have perfect trust in Divine Power (Omnipotence) of Allah Almighty.
