Allah and I - by Salma Shahnawaz (QI-2015)

إِنَّهُۥ مَن يَأْتِ رَبَّهُۥ مُجْرِمًۭا فَإِنَّ لَهُۥ جَهَنَّمَ لَا يَمُوتُ فِيهَا وَلَا يَحْيَىٰ

Whoever comes to their Lord as an evildoer will certainly have Hell, where they can neither live nor die.

وَمَن يَأْتِهِۦ مُؤْمِنًۭا قَدْ عَمِلَ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ فَأُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ لَهُمُ ٱلدَّرَجَـٰتُ ٱلْعُلَىٰ

But whoever comes to Him as a believer, having done good, they will have the highest ranks:

جَنَّـٰتُ عَدْنٍۢ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا ٱلْأَنْهَـٰرُ خَـٰلِدِينَ فِيهَا ۚ وَذَٰلِكَ جَزَآءُ مَن تَزَكَّىٰ

the Gardens of Eternity, under which rivers flow, where they will stay forever. That is the reward of those who purify themselves.

(Surah Taha 74-76)

Today’s tafseer had a great impact on me. The admonitions in the Qur’an are always showing me the mirror, الحمد لله, and today they deeply impacted me.

Although the Verses of Jannah (Paradise) came right after the Verses of punishment, I was finding it hard to change my focus. I was just feeling extremely afraid and tense. Everything was going wrong today. After class, I missed my ride home so I set out walking towards the metro station. I was too bummed out to even catch a cab.

The breeze was awesome, Masha’Allah. As I was walking, I was trying to feel more hopeful. The surroundings were stunning. The trees, the flowers, the birds, the breeze, all were beautiful سبحان الله and I was getting more and more cheered up as I walked on.

My zikr went from fervent استغفر الله to الحمد لله, and سبحان الله. As I reached the final stretch to the metro entrance, I was even smiling pleasantly!

Just then two butterflies did a spontaneous synchronized dance in front of me under a massive shady tree and سبحان الله it was so amazing that I stopped in my tracks and just started saying the Taqbeeraat (الله اكبر) loudly.

It felt like my entire walk had been a private conversation with Allah سبحانه و تعالى  and He so beautifully reminded me of his immense Mercy (the butterflies were the final touch for sure :)) and in the end I was reminded  of how Allah’s Mercy outweighs His Wrath, الحمد لله.
