What Does It Mean to Say That Allah Won’t Let You Down?

Answered by Shaykh Yusuf Weltch


What does it mean to say that Allah won’t let you down?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate.

When someone is saying, “Allah won’t let you down,” they are essentially instilling hope and a good opinion of Allah in the heart of the one being spoken to.

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and give him peace) narrates that Allah Most High said, “I am as my servant thinks of Me, and I am with him when he remembers Me.” [Ahmad]

A Prophetic Example

An example of this statement from the Prophetic biography is the response of Our Mother Khadija (Allah be pleased with her) when the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and give him peace) returned from the Cave of Hira.

After the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and give him peace) expressed his concerns after receiving revelation for the first time, Sayyida Khadija said, “Nay, by Allah! Allah will never disgrace you. You join family ties, speak the truth, bear burdens, help the poor, treat well the guests, and help in hardships of truth.” [Bukhari; Muslim]
