Ticket No.25 – Being Pleased with Allah as your Lord
The Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said “Whoever says ‘I am pleased with Allah as my Lord, Islam as my religion and Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) as my Prophet’ paradise becomes compulsory for them.
[Abu Dawud - Classed as Sahih by Sh Al-Albaani]
This hadith shows the mercy of Allah Almighty whereby He Subhanhu Wa Ta’ala gives such great reward and makes paradise compulsory for a person in return for such a small action which requires little effort. This does not mean that the utterance of these words is sufficient, one must also act upon these words by worshipping Allah Almighty alone and making Him unique in Lordship, Worship and in His names and attributes (this is being pleased with Allah as our Lord), following the Shariah of Islam and striving to perform that which it orders and avoid that which it prohibits (this is being plesed with Islam as our religion) and following the Sunnah of the Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and taking his path and rejecting all other paths (this is being pleased with Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) as our Prophet).
And Allah Knows Best!
