‘When Allah Withholds, He Actually Gives…’



Sufyan ath Thawri rahimahullah:


Verily, when Allah withholds, He actually gives, because He did not withhold on account of miserliness or stinginess, but rather He looked at the benefit of the servant.




So the fact that He withheld is actually His choice for the servant and His excellent decision.”

Madarij as-Salikeen 2/215

JazakAllah khayr

Reminds me of the saying, 'May Allah take from you what takes you from Him'

When something is taken or witheld, we rarely realise why...But there is always wisdom behind it. Without a doubt.

WassalamuAlaykum

by "He looked towards you" im guessing you mean, "he benefitted you from what he decreed" because im sure Allah is always aware of every action, including hitler and bush.

its just a matter of letting them run their rampage, before taking judgement on yawmal qiyaamah sa7?


MashaaAllaah, beautiful reminder akhee!!

god is never away from us sister but we keep ourselves away from him and if you are true to god and want his guidance god will answer your prayers and guide you to his straight way but the improtant thing is to never lose hope in allah

Yes I mean that and I mean more , that He favoured you by lifting up your sins or eased your way out or it could be anything in the same sense. The sense of personal relationship towards HIM

This is sooo true!!

We think we know but we don't know the outcome of what we think we want. Only Allah swa knows what is best for us and we think is bad for us may be good for us and what we think is good for us may be bad for us. Allah swa knows best!

It reminds me of:

"But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” (2:216)

Hello

At the point when Allah withholds, He really gives, since He didn't withhold by virtue of niggardliness or miserliness, yet rather He took a gander at the event of the servant.So the way that He withheld is really His decision for the hireling and His amazing choice."
