Chapter (10) sūrat yūnus (Jonah)
And if Allah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him; and if He intends for you good, then there is no repeller of His bounty. He causes it to reach whom He wills of His servants. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful
Subhanallah, in Ramadhan we get chance to go through the whole Quran. In every Juzz there are some ayahs connecting to other Surahs. For instance, in Surah An’am My favorite ayah was
Chapter (6) sūrat l-anʿām (The Cattle)
Ayah 17: And if Allah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him. And if He touches you with good – then He is over all things competent.
Then, when I was looking to share some Ayahs from Surah Yunus, same ayah caught my attention and I thought how Quran is a reminder, how it is connected. How it proves that it it is from one and only one God. Whatever you need at the moment, Allah makes you take that message from His Book as He is talking Himself. It is truly the speech of Allah. The book talks to you like no other person does. The counseling it provides, there is no substitute to it. It consoles you. It uplifts you. It holds you. It gatheres you when you are scattered. Just ponder on these words:
“and if He intends for you good,then there is no repeller of His bounty. He causes it to reach whom He wills of His servants.”
Allah intends good for us.The fact that we are fasting, we can go to taraweeh, we can bow down to Him, we can listen to the soul shaking verses, we are able to share our provisions with others, we can to masjid and smile at others to gain sadqa, we are able to break fast with others, all this is His bounty, He has willed all of this to reach us. He is intending to do good with us. Shouldn’t we be thankful? Shouldn’t we be humble when we prostrate, how much thanks we should give Him. We can’t do justice to His bounties. It is His mercy, His absolute mercy to reward us, to bless us with this month and His Book. We can never ever be thankful enough. Surely:
