Allah is Sufficient for us

When the Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu alayhi wasalam) and his Companions (radiAllahu anhum) were threatened by the impending attack of the enemy, they said:

"Allah [Alone] is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs [for us]. So they returned with Grace and Bounty from Allah. No harm touched them; and they followed the good Pleasure of Allah. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty."

[Surah al-Imran; 3:174.]

- "Allah [Alone] is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs [for us]."

In today's world, where people chase these material things, how rare must it be for someone to say/think the above and live by it?

A world where those that have, want more, and those that don't have, dream of having.

Where are the content?

Subhannallah very poignant questioning! Many people these days say they are content when their actions speak otherwise...

May Allah allow us to be among those who strive to act according to the sunnah and Quran, rather than merely talk about it!

- Thank you Sister. It is scary though, when sinning becomes so....ubiquitous, insignificant and normal. Just look at those of us who are in owners etc...or even the regular person who sells something; we try our very hardest to make the most profit we can when this is quite clearly wrong.

I'm not sure what the figure is in percentage, or if there is one, maybe you can enlighten us, but how many Muslims who sell things do so in a Halal manner when it comes to making profit?

This is us not having trust that He is Sufficient for us right? So we try to take what we can.
