Day 17: Be A Mercy Warrior–30 Deeds 30 Days

Day 17: Be A Mercy Warrior 

Our Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, is the door to Allah’s Mercy. However, mercy is not always something that is in people’s hearts. It requires courage, and sacrifice. It requires being a warrior of mercy. All cultures universally respect the warrior, because of what they have to sacrifice.

Take your first step by striving for people’s basic human rights. Commit to a regular act of community service, and don’t limit yourself to just your religious or cultural community. Find a creative way to bring mercy to others, using your interests and gifts.

Will Allah Forgive Me?

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani was asked, “I have committed so many sins – can I even hope for Allah’s forgiveness?”

“His Mercy is our only constant”, by Shaykh Faid Mohammed Said

Ar Rahman“Allah Guides to His Light Whom He Wills.”

Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir Raheem.

Allah’s (Most High) Rahma is infinite.  In less than the blink of an eye, His Rahma (mercy) renews itself and further penetrates existence.

Take a moment.

Look at your hands – touch them.  What do you feel?  Smooth skin, bones, joints, and veins.  Look how Allah (Most High) constructed your hands.  The small veins of your hands lay on the service, while larger veins lay deeper.  His Rahma is reflected in this, as if it were that your larger veins lay on the surface, you would be in grave danger of injury.

Take another moment.

Think about your sight.  Allah (Most High) has limited your sight, but this limitation is His Rahma.  If you were to see all that there was to see, you would not be able to even drink spring water from a store bought bottle, as all the microscopic elements of water would be transparent to you, moving around in the bottle.

Take yet another moment.

Think about your hearing.  Allah (Most High), from His Rahma, has limited your hearing as well.  Every process in your body makes as sound, but yet we are unable to hear the closest sounds to us!  If our hearing was not limited, we would constantly imbued with sounds from within our own body.

We must think and reflect on His endless Rahma.  His Rahma is our only constant, and the only constant that increases consistently; the more we think and reflect, the more we will begin to realize His all-encompassing Rahma.

May Allah (Most High) raise your maqam, and May He envelope you always in His Rahma.

Shaykh Faid Mohammed Said
