Acquiring the special assistance of Allah Ta‘ala

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:

When a person adopts taqwa (piety) and fears Allah Ta‘ala in his life by subjecting his desires to the command of Allah Ta‘ala, then Allah Ta‘ala removes his difficulties through unseen means, and assists him through avenues which he least expects. Allah Ta‘ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:

وَ مَنۡ یَّتَّقِ اللّٰهَ یَجۡعَلۡ لَّهُ مَخۡرَجًا ۙ﴿۲﴾

The one who fears Allah, He (Allah Ta’ala) will make a way out for him (from every difficulty). (Surah Talaaq v. 2)

A guaranteed way to acquire the special assistance of Allah Ta‘ala is for one to assist the deen of Allah Ta‘ala. Allah Ta‘ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:

اِنۡ تَنۡصُرُوا اللّٰهَ یَنۡصُرۡکُمۡ

If you assist (the deen of) Allah, He will assist you. (Surah Muhammed v. 7)

If you make an effort to support the deen of Allah Ta‘ala, then Allah Ta‘ala will cause all systems of the world to work in your favor. The things that generally bring about harm and destruction, Allah Ta‘ala will transform them and make them a means of your ease and comfort. Look at the situation of Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) when he supported the deen of Allah Ta‘ala with his heart and soul, Allah Ta‘ala transformed the blazing fire into a pleasant garden for him. In the same manner, when Nabi Musa (‘alaihis salaam) assisted the deen of Allah Ta‘ala, then the ocean, which is normally a means of drowning, Allah Ta‘ala caused it to split open for Nabi Musa (‘alaihis salaam) and his people, thereby allowing them to reach the shores with safety.
