We supplicate & we are not answered, WHY ???
IBRAHEEM IBN ADHAM – may Allah have mercy on him – a third century scholar, a teacher and a companion of Sufyaan ath-Thawree رحمة الله عليه , was asked about the saying of Allaah – the Most High:
“AND YOUR LORD SAYS: ‘CALL ON ME I WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYER…” [Soorah Ghaafir (40): 60] …
“We supplicate and we are not answered.” WHY?
So he said to them:
You know Allaah, Yet you do not obey Him
You recite the Qur’aan, Yet do not act according to it
You know Shaitaan (Devil), Yet you have agreed with him
You proclaim that you love the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, Yet you abandon his Sunnah
You proclaim your love for Paradise, Yet you do not act to gain it
You proclaim your fear for the Fire, Yet you do not prevent yourselves from sins
You say “Indeed death is true”, Yet you have not prepared for it
You engage yourselves with finding faults with others, Yet you do not look at your faults
You eat of that which Allah has provided for you, Yet you do not thank Him
You bury your dead, Yet you do not take a lesson from it.
May Allah grant us understanding
