Be content with what Allah has decreed for you


      How beautiful are the words of Hajar (may Allah be pleased with her), the wife of Ibrahim and hte mother of Isma’il, when she followed her husband, after he had left her with her son in a valley that was not cultivated, and departed. She kept asking him, “O’ Ibrahim! Where are you going and leaving us in the valley, where there are no people and nothing?” He did not answer her, so she said: “Has Allah commanded you to do this?”  He said: “Yes.” She siad: “The He will not forsake us.” Indeed, Allah does not forsake His righteous slaves. Did not Allah compensate the man and his wife in Surah al-Kahf?


[And as for the boy, his parents were beliver, and we feared that he would oppress them by rebellion and disbelief. So we inteded that their Lord should change him for themfor one better in righteousness and nearer to mercy.] (Quran 18: 80-81)

Did Allah not take care of thetreasure of the righteous man for his two sons, when He commanded the companion of Musa to rebuild the wall so that it would remain strong until the two boys grew up and could take their father’s treasure?


[And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the town; and there was under it a treasure belonging to them; and their father was a righteous man, and your Lord intended that they should attain their age of full strenth and take out their treasure as a mercy from your Lord…] (Quran 18:82)
