Glad tidings to cool the hearts

But Allah came to them from where they did not expect it [translator’s note: “But Allah came to them from where they did not expect” is a reference to the 2nd Ayat of Surah al-Hashr]
My beloved ones .. to complete my previous tweets regarding Ihsan al-Dhann in Allah (to have good thoughts and expectations in Allah) – subhaanahu wa ta’ala, I say: there is one who says: “How can we have good thoughts in Allah – most high?
And some say: “We have good thoughts in Allah, however the reality is different from your optimism, for we see a dark tunnel – very black – and we don’t see anything but this, so how can we be given victory?!
How can you be optimistic, and we don’t see any light approaching and no hope returning in the darkness of this attack and this evil gathering and unification?! How can you be optimistic while you see the disunity of the factions?!
How can you be optimistic while you see the advancing of the enemy?!
How can you be optimistic while we see how the close and the far betrayed us, and we see the silence of the world – rather it’s plotting against us – and it’s stances with the enemy against us?!”
I say: Indeed the one with these pessimistic views have not swallowed the great Rabbani meanings received in the book of Allah, he did not recite the statement of Allah: “But Allah came to them from where they did not expect”.
He did not recite that recitation – reflect and contemplate .. Indeed his saying – most high: “But Allah came to them from where they did not expect” is from the greatest of the Ayaat that I stood by it, and reflected over it, and found within it great treasures.
“But Allah came to them from where they did not expect” is an ayat that I never read a day, except that I found optimism filled my mind and my body and that it flowed through my veins .. indeed it is the speech of Allah – all capable and most wise!
“But Allah came to them from where they did not expect”, the people of Nuh – alayhis-salam – did not expect that the boat built on land would save Nuh and those with him from the greatest Tufan that mankind had known.
The denying people of Nuh did not expect that the earth would become gushing water springs, and that the water would prevail over everything and that their end would be because of that, and that severity and severe taking from Allah.
No one thought that the rigid wooden staff in the hand of Musa would split the sea and Musa and his people would cross, and Firawn and his army would be destroyed “But Allah came to them from where they did not expect”.
Nimrod did not expect that Allah would destroy him with the most weak of creations, so Allah destroyed him with mosquitoes, and he did not expect that (to happen) “But Allah came to them from where they did not expect”.
No one expected that Ibrahim – alayhis-salam – would be safe and he would exit alive and in well-being from the fire his enemies lit for him, and they thought he would be destroyed “But Allah came to them from where they did not expect”.
And in the safety of Ibrahim – alayhis-salam – was destruction for them and a nullification for their power and their Gods and arguments. Allah saved him from the blazing fire encompassing him, and like that Allah saves the believers.
The people of Lut – alayhis-salam – did not think that their end would be that Allah would send angels to lift the Qaryat (village/city/town/dwelling) high, and turn it on it’s head, and send it to the earth.
And the people of ‘Ad did not expect that Allah would send to them a violent wind, so it would destroy them. And the people of Thamud did not expect that Allah would destroy them with the shout that cut their hearts and left them as lifeless corpses.
“But Allah came to them from where they did not expect” the Mufassiroon (scholars of tafsir) said in it’s meaning: in other words: so the decision of Allah came to them from where they didn’t expect it to come to them, from where they did not consider and where they didn’t know.
And for that, when the analyzers analyze, and when I find lessons, and strategies and expected scenarios – then there is a scenario that no one considered “But Allah came to them from where they did not expect”.
So have good optimism and Ihsan al-Dhann in your lord. And know that when Allah wants something, all he says to it is “kun (be)” and it is (“kun fayakun”). They are two letters Allah says “kun fayakun” so Bashar and those with him are defeated.
And Russia and America are defeated, and the people wake up, and it becomes in the blink of an eye that Allah changed a state (condition/situation) to a state (condition/situation). And that is not difficult for Allah, and a day we rejoice in the help of Allah.
Let us do Jihad, and work, and take the means, and the results are in the hand of Allah. And Allah will not disappoint his slaves and will not establish for his enemies and will not betray his army. So have comfort and trust in your lord.
We ask Allah that he hastens his help for the people of Sham, and shows us the end and punishment of the oppressors – hastened and not delayed.
And praise is for Allah the lord of the worlds.
