Allah chosen you as MUSLIM for a REASON | Nouman Ali Khan | Surah Al Hajj
“And strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. Allah named you “Muslims” before [in former scriptures] and in this [revelation] that the Messenger may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people. So
establish prayer and give Zakah and hold fast to Allah. He is your protector; and excellent is the protector, and excellent is the helper.” (Sahih International)
🔴 اجتباكم :to be chosen because you are suited for a job…From just the job description, we feel completely unqualified. But Allah CHOSE US to carry on the work of the Prophet (S)… He knows we can do it
🔷 Who can struggle for Allah “like He deserves it…” How will we ever be able to meet that bar??? Again, Allah already has stated that He chose us because he knew we could do it.
🔷 جعل ما : Allah gave us the hardest job description, then tells us that we won’t have any problem getting the job done. Allah teaches us that HE is the One who makes things easy and difficult…With Allah on our side nothing is difficult.
🔷 إبرهيم أبيكم ملة : Ibrahim (A) was tested with tons of difficult tests…leaving his family in the desert, being thrown in the fire, etc. If Allah can make Ibrahim’s (A) tests easy, He can make our tests easy too. And it is Ibrahim (A) who named us Muslimeen, people who
submit. When you think life is difficult, remember that it is Ibrahim (A) who named us.
🔷 شهيدا : on the Day of Judgment, Allah will ask the Prophet (S) to testify on behalf of each and every one of us. Imagine how terrible our punishment will be if the Prophet (S) testifies against us.
🔷 “Establish prayer, give Zakah, and hold onto Allah, he is your protective friend, what an awesome protector, and what an awesome helper!”
🔷 This is the way to seek Allah
➡️ Story of Ashaabul Kahf: The youth who refused to worship idols had the laws of physics bent for them, because they believed in Allah. When young people try to serve Allah, Allah molds the world to fit their needs. Allah’s miracles don’t just come to prophets; they come to young people trying to serve the deen. If we don’t serve the deen, Allah will replace us with an Ummah that will.
