[Video] Firmness in the Face of Calamities | Shaykh Sālih bin Fawzān Al-Fawzān
I request a statement from the Shaykh in light of the Prophetic guidance, regarding the manner stability is established during misfortunes, as well as satisfaction with the Will and Decree of Allah with reference to the proofs.
Shaykh Sālih bin Fawzān Al-Fawzān:
“In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. All praise is due to Allah, Lord of all that exists, and may the Peace and Prayers be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and his companions.
The Muslim is required to observe patience, along with reflection and invocation at the descent of calamities, from the statement of the Most High:
وَبَشِّرْ الصَّابِرِينَ* الَّذِينَ إِذَا أَصَابَتْهُمْ مُصِيبَةٌ قَالُوا إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
“…but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.). Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: “Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.”
[Surat Al-Baqarah, Ayaat 155-156]
And to hold back the tongue from complaining and wailing during the pains which occur from the Will and Decree of Allah, because it is upon the Muslim to be patient and to say:
إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ، اللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيبَتِي وَأَخْلِفْ علِي بخَيْرًا مِنْهَا
“Truly to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. Oh Allah, remove me from this plight and bring to me something better” [Muslim 2/632]
That which is mentioned is what the afflicted says at the descent of a calamity.”
