When we are kids,we want to grow old soon.We dream all day when i get older i will chose to become a doctor and serve ill people,or i will become a solider and fight for my country,or i will like to be a fire fighter and will save people lives,and so on.But all those child hood dreams and professions are from heart for a true reason.But when we grow old, life changes.We don’t want to chose a profession for some heroic reasons but we chose it for living.
When we grow old with big “O” we get responsibilities as a growing old gift.In child hood we are been feed by our parents but when we become adults the things make a 180 degree turn.So now we have to feed our own selves we have to survive,we have to find a profession,a good profession by which we can live our lives peacefully,And in our society most of times people cant start their own family unless he is earning and we also want a profession to achieve strong status in society.
We get so messed up worrying about earning,keeping a status,providing for our families and responsibilities that we forget the difference between right and wrong,Halal and Haram. So we chose the wrong Binary no (0 and 1 are binary No’s).And we keep on sinking and sinking in bog until we are in it from head to toe.But this is more worst than sinking in a muck because in it you have a conscious that you will die if you go more in but here its different,We don’t have sense,we run out of inner fire that used to lit in us and we lost the conscious that we are going to die,or we just become a Zombie.
Before you go diving in a pool of a “Quicksand” or you are already in it but you have decided to come up to save your life and waiting for the rope.No matter what,here is the rescue dawn.The only way you can be saved from the misery is believing in “Ar-Razzaq” the Sustainer,the Provider.It takes away your burden,the pressure of responsibility of providing knowing you are not the one who sustains and provides for the family it is he who is Providing.You are just a catalyst that can be replaced by some one else too if he wills.
How believing in Ar-Razzaq can Save us ?
1.In our Lives we give bribery to our upper authorities or there are situations when we feel bribery is our only way to survive.
2.When you feel worried about your family,you think when im gonna die who will provide for my family or when you feel worried im not earning yet how i will start a family.
3.When you are in a situation and you need a money,like if your mom or beloved one is in a hospital and you need a lot of money but to earn it you chose a wrong option,you go robbing a bank.
4.When you don’t offer your salah (Prayers) or you may lose a costumer.
5.When you are cheating in exams that you are worried about your grades and you think on bases of grades you will get a job and finally you will start earning.
6.When we are forced to accept bribery for the impotent person on the seat which belongs to some one else the deserving one and if we don’t accept that bribery we will lose the job.
7.When you stock alot of food when it is on 50 percent on sale etc.or when you listen the following food will go on shortage and you go on storing it for future.
In following above or other cases that can occur during life in which you are intented to adopt forbidden option you need to take a step back and reflect.By choosing the wrong option you are not sustaining your-self you are sinning.Do you know that the lil cub of a whale fish drinks around 600 litre of milk daily from her mother ? it is you who provide this much ?or which source in the depth of a sea can produce so much? verily it is Allah who makes milk in the Mother whale. And this is what Allah promises in Quran
“Allah the Almighty is the best provider of sustenance”.
In another verse he says
“Nay! Most surely man does trangress(all bounds).For he thinks himself Self-sufficent “(Surah Alaq: 6-7)
Your sustenance is the promise of Allah,the one who created you.and the Promise of Allah is eternal true.Your life is a test and in this test you are given situations in which you are given poverty,hunger and different trials but in all the tests you should remember Allah is with you,just put your trust in him,hes the one who provided you this long ,so he will provide you even in your trails.A hadith narrated by Umar ibne Khattab R.A “If you were to rely on Allah as he should be relied on,he would provide for you as he provides for the birds,they go out in the morning hungry and return in the evening full”[At-Tirmidhi].
