حَسْبُنَا اللَّهُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ

Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).”

–Surah Al ‘Imran (3:173)

In the event of fear and anxiety one should seek the help of Allah and frequently recite this ayah of the glorious Qur’an “Hasbunallahu wa Ni’mal Wakeel” “Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).” (3:173).

 

Ibn ‘Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: When (Prophet) Ibraheem(عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم) was thrown into the fire, he said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and, He is the Best Disposer of affairs.” So did Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (ﷺ), when he was told: “A great army of the pagans had gathered against him, so fear them”. But this (warning) only increased him and the Muslims in Faith and they said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)”. [Al-Bukhari].


Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah said, “How can I feel at ease when the Angel of the Trumpet, (Israfil) has put his lips to the Trumpet and is waiting for the order to blow it”. He (the Prophet) perceived as if this had shocked his Companions, so he told them to seek comfort through reciting: ‘Hasbunallahu wa Ni’mal-Wakeel [Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)]“. (For Arabic Text, read Hadeeth No. 409 here )


If you ask them: “Who created the heavens and the earth?” they will surely answer: “Allah.” Tell them: “What do you think, then, of the deities whom you call upon instead of Allah? If Allah should will that an affliction befall me, will those deities remove the harm inflicted by Him? Or if Allah should will that I receive (His) Mercy, will they be able to withhold His Mercy from me?” Say: “Allah is sufficient for me; those who have to put their trust, let them put their trust in Him. (Surah Az Zumar: 38)

A true Muslim understands very well that Allah alone is the Bestower and Withholder of Mercy, and He alone is the Remover of Harm and Affliction. Reciting Hasbunallahu Wa Nimal Wakeel provides the healing touch that is very much necessary in one’s life.

By putting one’s complete Trust in Allah, by leaving matters unto Him, by seeking only His grace and mercy, by accepting His decree, by submitting to His Will – a Muslim can equip oneself to face the challenges of life.

What is the source of Kalimah’s ?

Assalamu alaykum

Actually, these kalimas were compiled together for children to memorize and learn the basic fundamentals of a Muslim’s beliefs. They are not found altogether in any one hadith or narration from the Prophet (peace be upon him). However, some of them can be found individually in the narrations. To see the virtues of some of these kalimas one can read the Chapter of Dhikr in the Fada’il A’mal of Shaykh Zakariya Khandelwi.

Children are told that memorizing these kalimas will come in use in the grave. This is to encourage them to learn them quickly. Yes, if someone is to act on the dictates of these kalimas after memorizing them, then surely they will come in use in the grave.

And Allah knows best.

Tarteel vs Tajweed


What is the difference between Tarteel vs Tajweed ?

  • Tajweed is the science of the rules of recitation of the Quran.  Reciting with tajweed means that one is applying the rules of tajweed.  A related word is “mujawwad”.
  • Tarteel means reading as the Prophet (PBUH) used to recite and as he was ordered to by Allah.  [wa rattil il-Qurana tarteela] (Muzzammil 4).   The tafsir of this aya (according to ibn kahteer) is to recite the Qur’an slowly, making the letters clear because this is an assistance in understanding and pondering the meaning of the Qur’an.  A related word is “Murattal”.
  • When asked about the meaning of Tarteel, Ali (Radhiallahu Anhu) replied, ‘It means that the Qur’an should be recited with Tajweed and with due observance to the rules of Waqf (pausing or stopping at the end of the verse).’
  • In this sense, there is no difference between the two words.
  • We will use the term Tajweed to refer to the science (the group of rules) that we wish to master in order to recite with Tarteel.
  • The most valuable learning and reciting is the one performed by carfully observing language, mind and heart. The language takes care of the accuracy of the sounds and words, mind interprets their meaning and the heart keeps their instructions, advices and warnings. So the language speaks, mind recognizes and heart receives the moral message.

ٱلَّذِينَ ءَاتَيۡنَـٰهُمُ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ يَتۡلُونَهُ ۥ حَقَّ تِلَاوَتِهِۦۤ أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ يُؤۡمِنُونَ بِهِۦ‌ۗ

وَمَن يَكۡفُرۡ بِهِۦ فَأُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمُ ٱلۡخَـٰسِرُونَ

“Those unto whom We have given the Scripture, who read it with the right reading, those believe in it. And whoso disbelieveth in it, those are they who are the losers. (Al-Baqara, 121).

Narrated Uthman, Prophet Muhammad () said: ‘The best among you are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it to others’ (Sahih Al Bukhari vol 6, book 61, no. 545) Tajweed is the Science of reading Qur’an correctly. Learning how to recite the Qur’an correctly is an obligatory act upon EVERY Muslim.

Who was the Prophet Idris AS?

No one knows with certainty since below 2 passages are the only references to him in the entire Qur’an.

And [mention] Ishmael and Idris and Dhul-Kifl; all were of the patient. And We admitted them into Our mercy. Indeed, they were of the righteous. (Qur’an 31:85-86)

 

And mention in the Book, Idris. Indeed, he was a man of truth and a prophet.  And We raised him to a high station. Those were the ones upon whom Allah bestowed favour from among the prophets of the descendants of Adam and of those We carried [in the ship] with Noah, and of the descendants of Abraham and Israel, and of those whom We guided and chose. When the verses of the Most Merciful were recited to them, they fell in prostration and weeping. (Qur’an 19:56-58)

 

Allah has praised Idris AS in the verses above and described him as a prophet and truthful. Our Prophets’ ancestral line meets him as many of the genealogists mentioned it. Muslim commentators say that Idris AS was deeply devoted to his Lord’s worship and law; in fact his name means “one who studies or teaches”.

After Adam and Shiith, Idris was the first man to be sent as Prophet, peace be upon them all.
Prophet Idris (AS)

What is tarteel?


Allah Ta’ala says in the Holy Qur’an:

ورَتلناه ترتيلا

“And with tarteel We have revealed it i.e. the Qur’an”

Also we have been ordered to recite the Qur’an with tarteel; Allah Ta’ala says,

ورتل القرأن ترتيلا

“And recite the Qur’an with tarteel”

From the above two verses, it becomes obligatory on us to recite the Qur’an with tarteel.


Tajwīd (Arabic: تجويد‎ taǧwīd) is an Arabic word for elocution, (meaning to improve, to make better, to embellish) meaning proper pronunciation during recitation, as well as Qur’an recitation at a moderate speed. It is a set of tajweed rules which govern how the Qur’an should be read. It is derived from the triliteral root ǧ-w-d, meaning to make well, make better, or improve. Tajweed Qur’an is required by fard.

    • Tajweed of the Holy Qur’an is the knowledge and application of the rules of recitation to the reading of the Qur’an as the Prophet Mohammed pbuh, recited
    • Allah (j.s.) orders: “Pronounce the Quran carefully (with tarteel).”
    • According to verified sources the Messenger said: “Study the Quran with the Arabic melody and sounds.”
    • Tarteel (preciseness wisdom perfection) is a feature of the Quran as it is said in the ayat: “And we reveal it ayat by ayat (tarteel). (Al-Furkan.32)

The Holy Qur’an tells us in several verses that Allah (Praise to Him) has created plants in pairs (male and female) in order for plant reproductive activities to happen leading to giving us the fruits we enjoy on this Planet.

In Chapter 20, Verse 53, Allah (Praise to Him) also says:

“… and (God) has sent down water from the sky. With it, We have produced diverse pairs of plants (Taha, 20: 53).

وَأَنزَلَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءً۬ فَأَخۡرَجۡنَا بِهِۦۤ أَزۡوَٲجً۬ا مِّن نَّبَاتٍ۬ شَتَّىٰ  – طه ، 20: 53

 

In Chapter 13, Verse 3, Allah (Praise to Him) also says:

“and of all fruits, He made in them pairs, two each (a male and a female).

وَمِن كُلِّ ٱلثَّمَرَٲتِ جَعَلَ فِيہَا زَوۡجَيۡنِ ٱثۡنَيۡنِ‌ۖ  – الرعد ، 13: 3

In Chapter 31, Verse 10, Allah (Praise to Him) also says:

We send down water from the sky, (in order that) We cause goodly pairs to grow out of it (of earth) (Luqman, 31: 10).

وَأَنزَلۡنَا مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءً۬ فَأَنۢبَتۡنَا فِيہَا مِن ڪُلِّ زَوۡجٍ۬ كَرِيمٍ  – لقمان ، 31: 10

In Chapter 36, Verse 36, Allah (Praise to Him) also says:

Glory to Him, Who created all pairs, of what the earth produces, of themselves (humans), and of others unknown to them (Yaseen, 36: 36).

سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ الْأَزْوَاجَ كُلَّهَا مِمَّا تُنبِتُ الْأَرْضُ وَمِنْ أَنفُسِهِمْ وَمِمَّا لَا يَعْلَمُونَ  – يس ، 36: 36
