Sufficient for us is Allah, and [He is] the Best Disposer of Affairs!

Throughout history, Muslims have used the du’a in Surat Āl Imrān [Chapter 3, Quran] in the face of calamity and fearsome situations.

Those to whom hypocrites said, “Indeed, the people have gathered against you, so fear them.” But it [merely] increased them in faith, and they said, “Sufficient for us is Allah, and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs” So they returned with favor from Allah and bounty, no harm having touched them. And they pursued the pleasure of Allah, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty. (Āl Imrān | 3: 173-174)

Notice the results: 1. they returned (to their homes) 2. no harm touched them 3. they followed the pleasure of Allah

Two days ago someone dreamt of the Beloved Prophet sallalahu alayhi wa sallam, that a person complained to him of what we in Shām (Syria) were undergoing. His answer (pbuh) was, “Until the jar is filled you must wait and be patient.” She asked, “What do we fill it with?” He said, “Hasbuna Allah wa ni’ma al Wakīl, ni’ma al Mowlā wa ni’ma al Nasīr.”

حسبنا الله ونعم الوكيل نعم المولى ونعم النصير
“Sufficient for us is Allah,
and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs”

This is a call and a plea, to all who care to do 1100 of this phrase a day! Please! We do not need a dream to be convinced of what Allah mentions in His Book; these are powerful words. In great numbers they can cause victory and safety. Say them and think about their meaning. Do not miss a single day. Every day, every person, every eleven hundred count. Let us hope we all turn out to be of those who can be counted on…ameen.
