To Allah you will be returned
Chapter “’Ankabuut”- (The Spider) – 29
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahiminash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ تَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ لَا يَمْلِكُونَ لَكُمْ رِزْقًا فَٱبْتَغُوا۟ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرِّزْقَ وَٱعْبُدُوهُ وَٱشْكُرُوا۟ لَهُۥٓ إِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ 17
|17b. Lo! Those whom ye serve instead of Allah own no provision for you. So seek your provision from Allah, and serve Him, and give thanks unto Him, (for) unto Him ye will be brought back.||17b. ‘Innallaziina ta’-buduuna min duuNillaahi laa yamlikuuna lakum rizqan fabtaguu ‘indAllaahir-rizqa wa’-buduuHu wash-kuruu laH. ‘ilayHi turja-‘uun.|
It is commanded: The things which you adore instead of Allaah Almighty, do not possess any particle of your provision. Those could give you something if had something. Those have nothing to give but Allaah Almighty is in Whose treasure is everything. He is Owner of everything and only He gives provision to all animate beings. Put these idols off, worship and praise Allaah Almighty and ask for booms from Him only, remove these false and helpless gods from the centre. You will see that even then, the provision is being given to you. Think! Who gives provision? Listen and believe that He is Allaah Almighty. Ask for provision from Him only, then why do you associate others with Him? Set it apart because it is falsehood. Be grateful to Allaah Almighty and praise Him because He has given and will provide all required things.
Hear! A Day is near to come, when all of you will be present in His Court, whether you live anywhere in the world and do what you wish. You will have to be returned to Him. If you disobeyed His Command, how will you face on the Day of Resurrection? What answer will you give when He will ask from you: Why did you worship others instead of Me?
17b) Indeed, those you worship besides Allah do not possess for you [the power of] provision. So seek from Allah provision and worship Him and be grateful to Him. To Him you will be returned.”
