WARNING ABOUT SHIRK!
WARNING ABOUT SHIRK!
Allah is the King and Owner of everything. You don't own and control anything except the freewill which Allah has given us. Whatever you possess are from the bounties of Allah. So be grateful on everything you possess. And be patient if Allah The Malik takes it back from you, be it your wealth, loved ones etc..
Don't blame on things and people when you loose something or someone.
For instance, a relative of mine, when her husband died right after they had shifted their house. She complained that her husband died cause they shifted into a newly built house, she added that newly built house didn't suit her husband. It's bewildering to hear such things and also hilarious for such illogical assumption.
Does a building made of bricks and cement have the power to take a life. If Someone died in an accident or by drowning. Then people say IF ONLY he had not gone there, IF she had not come along they might have been alive. Allah says in Quran
"Wherever ye are, death will find you out, even if ye are in towers built up strong and high!" If some good befalls them, they say, "This is from Allah.; but if evil, they say, "This is from thee" (O Prophet).Say: "All things are from Allah." But what hath come to these people, that they fail to understand a single fact? (Surah An-Nisa, 78)
IF IS THE WORD OF SATAN.
Hasn't Allah already decreed ones birth, risq, death, fortune and misfortune even before Adam was created. If you blame others for any loss, then it would mean that you consider that, that thing has the power to bring you harm other than Allah. Nauzubillah!.. It's SHIRK
Anything good or bad is from Allah..
One should remember that not all bad is from ALLAH. The test and trails are from ALLAH so at such times one should be patient and seek reward and pleasure of THE LORD ALMIGHTY. But sometimes a person brings certain problems and calamities upon by himself, through is laziness, negligence and by mistakes done in deen.
