To have good opinion of Allah and to have good opinion among Muslims
To have good opinion of Allah and to have good opinion among muslims is one of the characteristics of a believer.Within every man lays all the answers that he knows, everyone have a little knowledge’s by Allah’s will that he can shares. A man can follow his heart, when he always learnt from his past mistake, purifying his soul and body. Every single effort to help those who been oppressed, even du’a for them in private will consider as sincere help Insyaallah. Man should correct his fault , he also have try to find qualities in others in order to correct his fault. Man that is knowledgeable in his speech is not ignorant in his heart but in his bad opinion to others and in himself , as good opinion on others will make him more than a person of knowledge. A person of understanding. After all his best effort to be a good believing man than he will leave it to Allah all his good deed and ask for forgiveness for his flaws . InsyaAllah, to have good opinion to Allah s.w.t is important. So if all of these conditions are fulfilled, good opinion of Allah will come to fruition in the heart.
For in the Qudsi Hadith, which was narrated by Abu Hurairah, Allah Most High says:
“I am as my slave thinks of me and I am with him whenever he remembers me.” (Agreed Upon).
In another hadeeth recorded by Muslim, Jaabir narrates that he heard the Prophet (saws) three days before his death as saying:
“Let none of you die without having a good opinion of Allah High and Mighty.”
There is no doubt that having good opinion of Allah is coupled with good actions. Just as having good opinion of Allah is one of the characteristics of a believer, the ill-opinion of Allah and the opinion that does not befit his Majesty is from the characteristics of hypocrites and polytheists who look at Allah with a view of Jaahilyyah (ignorance) and falsehood.
Yes, as a Muslim these days needs a lot of trust in Allah, and renewal of our faith in Allah, and great dependency on Him. We should also definitely know, believe, and understand that Allah is capable of anything, and that all issues return back to Allah and to no one else.
May Allah’s mercy be upon the poet who said:
"And the deen is victorious and tested,
Don’t be surprised,
For this is the way of Al-Rahmaan (the Most Merciful)..."
So revere Allah. Turn to Him in repentance and seek His forgiveness. Beware of having doubt and ill thoughts about Allah. We should accuse ourselves before forming a bad opinion about Allah.
Allah Most High says:
“And Allah is predominant over His affairs, but most of the people do not know.” [Yusuf: 21]
Do not let the temporary control that the oppressors have over the world deceive you. For verily Allah the All Mighty says:
“Be not deceived by the [uninhibited] movement of the disbelievers throughout the land. [It is but] a small enjoyment; then their [final] refuge is Hell, and wretched is the resting place.” [Aal-Imraan 196-197]
Decree for us a swift defeat over them O Allah (Lord ) of the Universe.
May Allah reward you with goodness. Ameen.
