I chose you for Myself - by Zohra Irfan (QI- 2016)

or many of us sitting in the halaqas (study circles), a frequent question that crosses our minds… at least for me is: “Allah chose me to be here? Inspite of the baggage of sins that I have accumulated? Every day, I disappoint my Rabb and yet He is being so Merciful and kind to me by allowing me to learn some more about His religion?”

In Surah Taha comes this beautiful verse in which Allah says to Mosa ( عليه سلام) :

وَاصْطَنَعْتُكَ لِنَفْسِيAnd I have chosen you for Myself

Mosa (عليه سلام) being physically very strong had by accident killed a person in the past. He only wanted to put an end to a fight, but without realising, had ended up killing a Coptic Egyptian. Imagine the guilt that follows after even slapping a person. Can we imagine the guilt that Mosa (عليه سلام) went through although it was completely unintentional? Yet, Allah says that He had chosen him for Prophethood.

A lot of times we are guilty of many things and when an opportunity to do good comes our way, we turn it down because we truly don’t consider ourselves worthy enough. But how long will we give up opportunities to do good because of the wrong we do? Isn’t it true that the good deeds wipe out the bad ones? Don’t we think that since we are sinners, we actually truly-truly need to do more good deeds so that we can get saved from the Hell-fire?

Allah’s choice for your future does not depend on the mistakes you’ve done in your past. Look at Umar ibn Al-Khattāb (رضي الله عنه) – He wanted to kill the Prophet (sallAllahu aalaihi wa sallam)! And so did Khalid ibn Waleed (رضي الله عنه)! And yet Allah chose them and guided them to Islam.

Next time an opportunity to do good comes your way, take it up with the hope that the good will nullify the bad, in sha Allah.

سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ
