The Grand Plan
وَمَكَرُوا وَمَكَرَ اللَّـهُ ۖ وَاللَّـهُ خَيْرُ الْمَاكِرِينَ
“They (the Jews and all the enemies of Islam) devised a plan, and Allah devised a plan. And Allah is the best of planners.” (Surah Aal-‘Imraan v54)
In this era, the media works hard to instill fear and despondency in the hearts of the Muslim. To achieve this, they continuously portray the Muslim Ummah as being weak, divided, powerless and downtrodden. Hence, the fall of the Muslim countries and the power of others is a scene that is repeatedly painted by the brush of the enemies of Islam.
In the face of this negativity and despondency, we need to repeatedly speak about the power and might of Allah Ta‘ala. It is Allah Ta‘ala alone who makes the final decision and no army or intelligence can ever oppose the plan and system of Allah Ta‘ala. We need to be convinced that Allah Ta‘ala has an unseen, divine system which is full of wisdom. We should not be deceived and disheartened by the apparent plans of man. Rather, we should believe and place our confidence in the hidden, master plan of Allah Ta‘ala. Remember, Allah Ta‘ala has promised that it is the people of taqwa who will ultimately enjoy the favorable outcome.
