Lead A Happy & Blessed Life - Timeout with the Holy Qur'an

Ayah in focus - Surah Al-Nahl (16:97) A goodly pure life is where a person has a restful heart and a faithful spirit. Contentment lies in submission to the will of Allah (SWT). This is best manifested in the timeless words of Lady Zaynab (a).

When Zaynab, alayha as-salam, the daughter of Ameer ul-Mu'mineen, alayhi as-salaam, was taken as a prisoner, to Ubaydullah Ibn Ziyad in Kufa and he looked at her in his court and said to her "What do you think of what Allah has done to you?" Her reply was "maa ra'aytu illa jamilah" - I did not see anything but beauty from Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. Despite her calamities, tragedies, afflictions, the pain that she is having inside for the loss of Al-Imam Al-Husayn, alayhi as-salam, yet she is at peace and tranquility.

This is what is achieved when a person believes in Allah, Subhana wa Ta'ala and acts righteously. When we experience problems, we should say, 'Inna lillaahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un' (2:156) [We belong to Him and to Him is our return].

Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says in Surat al-Nahl in verse 97- whoever, acts righteously, [whether] male or female should he be faithful, We shall revive him with a good life and pay them their reward by the best of what they used to do.(16:7).

We pray to Allah, Subhana wa Ta'ala, to bless us with a good, blessed life with His pleasure.

Wa assalaamu alaykum, wa rahmatullahi, wa barakatuh.

Quando Zaynab, alayha as-salam, la figlia di Amir ul-Mu'minin, alayhi as-salaam, fu portata come prigioniera da Ubaydullah Ibn Ziyad a Kufa ed egli la vide alla sua corte e le chiese: "Cosa pensi di quello che Allah ti ha fatto?", la sua risposta fu: "Maa ra'aytu illa jamilah", "Non ho visto altro che la bellezza di Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala." Nonostante le sue disgrazie, tragedie, sofferenze, il dolore che prova dentro di sé per la perdita di al-Imam al-Husayn, alayhi as-salam, ella è comunque tranquilla e in pace. Questo è ciò che si ottiene quando si crede in Allah, Subhana wa Ta'ala, e si agisce rettamente. Quando abbiamo dei problemi, dovremmo dire: 'Inna lillaahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un' (2:156) ["A Lui apparteniamo e a Lui facciamo ritorno"]. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala dice nella Surat al-Nahl al versetto 97: "Chi agisce rettamente, [sia esso] maschio o femmina, se ha fede, lo resusciteremo a una buona vita e gli daremo la sua ricompensa secondo il meglio di quello che erano soliti fare." (Qur'an 16:7).

Preghiamo Allah, Subhana wa Ta'ala, di benedirci con una vita buona e benedetta di cui Si compiaccia.

Wa assalaamu alaykum, wa rahmatullahi, wa barakatuh.
