A True Story From Saudi Arabia

floodDuàs we make and get heedless because we think it was not answered.

Last night, I had to meet my friend who came from Jeddah and I couldn’t take my Dad’s car so I thought I will rent one. As a regular customer I went to the same rent a car shop and he said rules have been changed in his office and I will have to keep a deposit to rent the car. I cancelled and took a cab and met my friend. I came back home to see the newsfeed full of updates with roads flooded and major highways blocked. SubhanAllah this is how Allah averts us from the unforeseen calamities which we know not of. I could’ve rented the car and maybe got stuck in the flood and the car could’ve got seriously damaged and would have lost a big amount of payback to the rented car.

One of the ways our duàs get answered is Allah keeps it to save you from calamities we don’t know about. Complaining or to stop making duà is only a harm upon yourself. Lift your hands with certainty that Allah answers you but in ways He want to, at the right time for the right thing you deserve. Do not complain to Allah how He did not answer your duà immediately rather thank Allah how He doesn’t punishes us immediately when we commit a sin. All praise is to Allah!

“We sin as if He cannot see but He forgives as if He didn’t see”

    Doing Dua for othrrs too is a reward

    I confirm that God is the greatest and the only one who create us and in God we have to believe.

    Relative to this story, I have one question and I wish that you can give me a logical answer.
    Is that means that the others who lost their cars and properties are not good persons, they don’t believe in God, they don’t pry, they don’t do their duties to God and they don’t deserve what they own?

      That’s a good question, Toufic. I will try to answer it.

      Well, if something bad happens to a believer it is either “a punishment” from Allah SWT for sins that he has committed OR it is “a test/trial” from Allah SWT to see how much patience the person has… Allah knows best

      And in either case one has to have patience

    A said prayer will always be answered. also, if ALLAH remove the vail and let us see why HE does what and when, we will be grateful.

    Allah has blessed us with countless blessings, Dua is one of the precious gift to us. Moreover, Allah has instructed us to “ASK from HIM” so we have to always, with beleive that all our DUAS are notified by Allah.

    Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God .
