Be Thankful of Every Grace, even Just A Little…

Alhamdulillah, all praises be to Allah, The Bestower of all graces. Supplications (to Allah, to exalt the mention of His messenger) and salutation given all time to our Prophet, Muhammad, his family, and his noble companions.

Every single day, we acquired uncountable graces from Allah, The Most Gracious. But sometimes, even with those merits, we still feel dissatisfied. For example, Allah The Exalted has granted us health, body and soul, which, if one want to pay to have it, is very expensive, even unmeasurable. Allah has given us long ages, which could never be paid even by all riches we possess. Nevertheless, we just consider that our wealth is our only grace, sole fortune. While actually, our health, age, and on the top of that, our belief, are either wonderful graces from Allah The Merciful.

The Meaning of La Ilaha Illa Allah (None has the right to be worshipped but Allah)

Etymologic meaning of word ‘ilah’

The word ‘ilah’ comes from the word ‘alaha’. It is mentioned In the book titled “Ash Shihah fii Lughah” that ‘alaha’ means ” ‘abada” or worship. While in “Mukhtar Ash Shihah“‘ it is mentioned that ‘alaha-ya’lahu’ means ” ‘abada”, or worship. The word ‘ilah’ refers to the word pattern ‘fi’al’, which literally means maf’ul (object). Thus, the word ‘ilah’ means “ma’luh” or a worshipped object. (Refer to Mukhtar Ash Shihah, chapter “hamzah”, www.islamspirit.com)

the meaning of laa ilaa ha illallah

In the other reference, Al Mu’jam Al Wasith Dictionary (part 1, page no. 25), it is explained that ‘ilah’ means every thing that used to be worshipped. The plural form of it is ‘alihah’. In Arabic language, ‘ilah’ is also termed as ‘ma’bud’. Hence, the scholars interpreted the actual meaning of “Laa ilaaha illallaah (None has the right of worshipping but Allah) as “Laa ma’buda bihaqqin'” or “laa ma’buda bihaqqin illallaah” (Refer to “Syarh Tsalatul Ushul“/Explanation of The Three Foundation, author Ibn othaymeen, page no. 77)

Safer Accounts and Investments than Banking

The Safest Investment According to Qur’an and Sunnah (Prophetic Guidance)

All this time, we save our money at the bank to keep it safe, not decreasing, and not stolen by others. We deposit it to the bank to achieve benefits and multiply our wealth. For so long, bank has been considered as the safest place to invest and to keep or money safe. But is it true, factually?

As a perfect religion, Islam has enlighten the best way to keep our riches safe, and to double it. Unfortunately, most of us do not recognize this important knowledge, or void of faith in it, whereas the One promises to keep it safe and bestow lots of benefits is Allah, Lord of The Worlds, The Wealthiest of all Who Masters All Objects of Universe.

We trust banks, which are led by powerless men, but we only trust and acknowledge the promises of Allah as mere concepts inside religious forum and discussions, without real and thorough practice.

Safer Accounts and Investments than Banking

The solution Islam offered is simple, “Charity”, which means spending wealth in Allah’s cause. Yes, dear brother, be sure that performing charitable deeds will help us to:

Safe-keep out wealth (Even much safer than the bank), and it will not be decreasing even just a bit due to charity.
Multiply our wealth (Even hundreds-folds better than the interest of bank deposits)

Faith in Allah

Faith, or believe in Allah contains 4 elements (See: Syarah Ushulil Iman, page no. 13-22), which are:

First: Believe in the concrete form and existence of Allah the Exalted

The existence of Allah has long been proved by the fitra (pure character) of mankind, their intelligence, their five senses, and by shari’ah.

Faith in Allah

Evidence from fitra

Characteristically, mankind have already acknowledged the existence of the creator, the arranger, and the owner of this universe. No one deny this fact but the arrogant atheists. The Messenger of Allah -peace and blessings of Allah may be upon him-, “There is no child who is not born in a state of Fitrah, then his parents make him a Jew, or a Christian, or a Magian.” (Collected by Bukhari, in hadith no. 1292)
