Attaining the Characteristics of the Most Merciful (Rahman) | Mufti Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf
Allah’s Grace | Mufti Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf
In this discourse the Shaykh highlights how a person worships Allah and how they act in situations of trial or bounty will be according to how much they know Allah, His Names and Attributes. If the seeker experiences grief over something which has been restricted and withheld from them, then they have not understood the way of Allah. Ibn Ata’illah mentions in the Book of Wisdom that when Allah gives, He is showing you His kindness and when He deprives you, He shows you His power, and in all that He is showing you His gentleness. Shaykh advises that the aspirant in times of blessing should recognise that the bounty has come from Allah alone. This should increase ones love for Him. Also, ones dependency on Allah will strengthen if the aspirant turns to Him first for all of his or her needs. Shaykh Abdur-Rahman mentions that now, as the aspirant understands that only Allah gives, they will neither experience grief or sorrow when something is restricted from them. The characteristics of Ar-Rahman such as generosity, gentleness and kindness to others will then begin to enhance within them.
