Jumu’ah Post: Allah; The Ultimate Director of Every Episode of Life

Our lives here in this world, as designed by the best and insurmountable Fashioner, Al Mussawir, is a series of uneven episodes that have been merged to be lived in uncertainty by us, wherein the events we describe as “good” and those we perceive as “bad” will be placed together. This uncertainty of what will become of us, either good or bad, is what majorly tags our lives as “risky” and gives it its imbalance nature, which Allah SWT already has a preconceived knowledge about.

Irrespective of the time we tend to witness in our existence, which we never had a foreknowledge of, and the next which we have zero idea of what it has in stock for us, we have been called upon by the Origiinator of these events to always all upon Him, in order for our affairs, in any phase, to be of guidance, safety and prosperity.

The Prophet (SAW) was instructed in the Qur’an thus: “Say, Call upon Allah or call upon Ar-Rahman, the Most Merciful. Whichever [name] you call – to Him belong the best names. And do not recite your prayer [too] loudly or [too] quietly, but seek a way in between.” Bani Isra’il [17:110]. It has been enshrined that our affairs be unavoidably on convergence with the path of seeking of Allah’s light, through the best of names possessed by Him, and living in a world of uncertainty, especially a present world of great insecurity and calamity, makes the need a more vital one to uphold.

The state of disorganized economy, crookedness and distress we seem to be undergoing today, especially in Nigeria, is nothing strange to the knowledge of the One who sees the unseen and hears the unheard. We, of course, are tired and weared off of the increasing distress each of the situation is bringing, but until we do the needful of reaching out to Him, as instructed in His words, to ease our pains, our situation will persist. For He can make a discomfort of hundreds of years vanish thinly into the blowing air, He will definitely make our pains go away if we call upon Him.

It takes a Godly or spiritually conscious heart to seek the face of Allah even in the calmest of event, and surely a near catastrophic event such as Nigeria’s present situation will require a louder volume of Allah’s consciousness in order to think of calling upon Him, as hearts are already in states of despair, may Allah grant us succor.

The privileged minds that find ease in calling unto their Lord can be of great favor by carrying along the weaker ones in unity, so as to seek the pleasure of the Almighty, as it makes a greater impact of positive outcome.

Through the favor of Allah, after seeking His pleasure, we can now be rest assured that human contribution to a better economy will be aided by Divine guidance and intellectuality, as nothing gets possible or impossible without the will of the ultimate Director of our affairs.

May Allah ease all our sufferings and grant us a greatly blessed episode of life, Aameen.
