ALLAH does not change the state of people, until they change it themselves


Do Not Bind Your Hand

And as for man, when his Lord tries him and [thus] is generous to him and favors him, he says, "My Lord has honored me." [89:15]

But when He tries him and restricts his provision, he says, "My Lord has humiliated me." [89:16]

No! But you do not honor the orphan [89:17]

And you do not encourage one another to feed the poor [89:18]

And you consume inheritance, devouring [it] altogether, [89:19]

And you love wealth with immense love. [89:20]


  1. Greetings,

    This is a very nice post. Thank you for it.

    This post leads me to consider how we (humans) are contingent upon the Divine. It is, and thus we are (in a way I don't understand).

    We are as waterways through which He runs. We have to step out of the way to allow the current to flow.

    All good wishes,


    1. Robert, I like this analogy.

      Thank you for the comment. :)
