The Beauty of..Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilahi Raaji'oon

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabaraka'atuhu

One of the meaningful emails…. just so amazing…

The meaning of " Inna Lillahi Wa Inna
 Ilahi Raaji'oon" & 
Seven names of Allah
  Inna lillaahi wa inna
 ilayhi Raaji'oon
Yeah, sure we say this statement
 when someone dies.Also some of us
 may say this sentence when they lose
 something, suffer a setback or harm.  Butآآآ… you know what it means?

Sure, everyone know that it obviously

 means 'To Allaah we belong and to Him is our return.'
But that's not what I am talking about.
 I mean آ….do you REALLY, TRULY
 understand these words and their implications
 in a Muslim's life?

It means آ…whatever we have is not really ours. It belongs to Allaah..
 Take a look around you; everything you see,
 all that you have and all that there isآ….in
 you, on you, around youآ….belongs to Allaah, alone.

It is Allah Who has given you all the property
 and goods you possess, and that He is the true Owner of them all.
So the cars that you own, the houses that you
 live in, the businesses you possess all truly
 belong to Allaah 

The kids that He blessed you with, the health

 that He gave you, the time that He has allowed
 you are all Allah's property.

Even the bodies we live in and the life that 
we have belongs to Allaah alone. "And to Allah belongs the inheritance of the heavens and the earthآ…." (Surah Aal-Imraan:180)
"The kingdom of the heavens and the earth and everything in them belongs to Allah. He has power over all things." ( Surat al-Ma'ida: 120)
'Say: 'To Allah belongs the East and the Westآ…'(Surah al-Baqarah:142) Now, since everything belongs to Allaah, then we have to include even our souls in that list..

The very souls that we think of as our "self"; our "nafs"; our "being" -- whatever you want to
 call it -- that very thing that distinguishes you
 from the rest of the world, belongs to Allaah. It's not YOURS.
In fact, YOU are not YOURS. 
You belong to Allaah.
And this is the essence of the concept of slavery to Allaah in Islam.And since He is the true
 Possessor of everything, and everything is His property, He allots what He wills to whomever He willsآ…A 6.and then He takes it away. After all, it was Allaah's to begin with.
So He may give you some thing and then take it back after a while.. 

He will bless you with a precious child that

 you love dearlyآ…and then He may take it away. 
He will grant you money, honour and

 statusآ…..and then He may take it away..
He will give you youth, vitality and health and then surely He will take it away.

In fact everything you have will only be with you for a very short while.

And then the Owner will claim His Right.
 So when Allaah does reclaim what was rightfully His, WHY MOURN OUR LOSSES?
Just like a friend who lends you his book. 
And then after a few days, he wants it back and you give it back to himآ…no regretsآ… sorrowآ….
no questions asked.

Similarly, if Allah takes back some of His blessings upon you for some reasonآ….so be it.
Say Alhamdulillaah.
 Don't grieve.
Be patient.
Submit to the will of Allaah, being pleased 
with His decision for you. For surely He will
 only do what is best for you.

Just think
آ…..The Owner came and took it back.
 Rememberآ….that you're not the real ownerآ… were NEVER the real owner to begin with. You only had everything because it
 was Allah who gave it to you in the first place.
 If He didn't give it to you, you wouldn't have had it in any wayآ…in fact, you couldn't have had it.
Rememberآ….man enters into this world empty handedآ…and leaves it empty handed.
Rememberآ….that everything we have, all the blessings we enjoy, are gifts from Almighty that we enjoy for a limited period
 until He takes them away whenever He deems fit.

They are a trust from Allahآ…a loan to youآ
to see how you respond to these gifts from Allaah and how you use themآ….in the obedience of the Almighty, thanking Him and worshipping Himآ…آ…ORآ…آ… the disobedience to the One Who gave then to you in the first place.
 Take note of the words of the Prophet
 (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) on the 
2 0occasion of the death of his son, 
'Our eyes are filled with tears, our hearts
 with grief, but we say nothing with our lips
 except that which pleases Allah.... Verily, 
to Allah we belong, and to Him we return.' (Bukhaari) And we all know the famous incidence about the companion AbuTalha and his wife
 when one of the sons died and Abu Talha was
 not at home. She washed and shrouded him and when Abu Talha came home and asked about his son, she said,
 'The child is quiet and I hope he is in peace

Subhaan Allaah
آ….such patience!
And such Imaan in the statement "Inna lillaahi wa inna ilayhi Raaji'oon"!
She truly understood its meaning and the
 affect it should have on her life as a Muslimah, submitting to him and being pleased with whatever He has decreed for her.

She knew that whatever she has, is not truly

 hers. Rather, it is Allaah'sآ….and He took back whatever He owns at its appointed time.
And it is because of this Imaan so strong, this understanding, that the Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) made dua for them

 and Allaah ble ssed them immensely.

"'They (i.e. Abu Talha and his wife) had nine

 sons and all of them became reciters of the
 Quran (by heart)." (Bukhaari)
 "Be sure we will test you with something of 
fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives,
 but give glad tidings to those who are steadfast, 
who say when afflicted with calamity: 'To Allah
 we belong and to him is our return.' They are those on who (descend) blessings from Allah and mercy and they are the once that receive guidance." (al-Baqarah: 155)
 The Prophet (PBUH) said 'Pass on knowledge
 from me even if it is only one verse'
seven names of Allah

The eyes beholding this message

 shall not behold evil, The hands
 that will send this message to others shall not labour in vain, 
The mouth saying Ameen to this

 duah shall laugh forever,

Remain in Allah's love as you send this Duah to everybody on your list.
Have a Lovely journey of life!

Trust in Allah (SWT) with all your heart and HE will never fail you because HE is Awesome! 1 min for our Creator - is it possibly too much? 
Please send these seven names

 of Allah to your friends please don't ignore...... ... 
1 Minute for Allah: 
Say with your heart and tongue: 








Please forward as within a short

 while you would have caused a multitude of people to salute, pray and glorify our creator and holy prophet (P.B.U.H.)

Whoever u sent it to people would have prayed with Angels saying AMEEN, 

NOW......... .. Sit back and watch the power of ALLAH work in your life for
doing the thing that you know HE loves.
