All achievements are attained through Divine Grace,
And without His Favour nothing is accomplished.
The person thus believes that had it not been for the Fadhl (Grace) of Allah Ta’ala then he would not have been recipient to the ‘taufeeq’ (Divine assistance) for all these achievements. This knowledge and understanding creates humility and submission.
Those who are the Ahle-Ilm (People of knowledge) will not attribute their rank and status to themselves. They too would be aware as to who has blessed them with this Ilm. Added to this, our intelligence, in itself, has been given by Allah.
I always cite the example that we regard the computer as a fantastic invention, a mind-boggling invention and no doubt it is, but who is the one who gave man the ‘chip’ in his head to manufacture such a chip that records billions of pieces of information ?
Intelligence, knowledge and understanding have been given by Allah Ta’ala. Their acquisition, is in reality, not within our power and ability.
The person who is making Ibaadat – Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala), Tilawat, Tuhajjad, Ta’leem, Tableegh, etc. is also humble because he understands that this is the ‘taufeeq’ and Fadhl of Allah. It is the kindness of Allah Ta’ala that He has granted the opportunity to do so.
…At this moment in time, how many of our brothers and sisters are at the cinemas, theatres, clubs, casinos, escort agencies, etc.? It is no doubt the Fadhl of Allah Ta’ala that He has given us the opportunity to come into His house and remember Him.
