“Never! By Allah, Allah Will Never Disgrace You!”
By these great words, the Mother of Faithful Believers, Khadijah, strengthened the heart of the Messenger of Allah, Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him, when he talked to her about the angel that descended to him in the Cave of Hira'.
“Never! By Allah, Allah Will Never Disgrace You!”
“Never! By Allah, Allah will never disgrace you; You keep good relations with your Kith and kin, tell the truth, help the poor and the destitute, serve your guests generously and assist the deserving calamity-afflicted ones."
By these great words, the Mother of Faithful Believers, Khadijah, strengthened the heart of the Messenger of Allah, Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him, when he talked to her about the angel that descended to him in the cave of Hira'. Expressing his fear, he said to her: «»
The role of the righteous woman and wife was to relieve the severity of the hardship that affected the Prophet of mercy, Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him, following this hard difficult meeting with “Gabriel”; and to ensure him about Allah’s Care for him, proving that by referring to the virtuous morals that the Prophet, Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him, used to practice in his community. She is clarifying for him that Allah, Glory be to Him, will never disgrace him for one collective reason: he is preserving a group of social worships, so Allah, Glory be to Him, will never disgrace a person, who keeps good relations with kith and kin, tells the truth, helps the poor and the destitute, serves his guests generously and assists the deserving calamity-afflicted ones.”
She is speaking to her husband as if she was a psychologist, a philosopher and a scholar, who is knowledgeable about Allah's Divine rules in his creatures…
By such words, she anticipated what the Messenger of Allah, Peace and Blessings be upon Him, said: «» (Al-Hakim authentic book, narrated by Anas)
Allah will never disgrace this great heart that carries all this goodness for people. Sadness will never touch this heart. Fear from people will never reach his soul. Happiness rather will fill his life, tranquility will fill his soul, bliss will overwhelm his life and the dust of misery will be shaken off his head.
Your heart will not become sad as long as it carries goodness for people…
* “Have glad tidings”…
The wound will be healed, pain will vanish away, and you will move forward in the way of life with this righteous heart, out of which light is overflowing to humans, to light up covered hearts, blind eyes and deaf ears.
* “By Allah, Allah will never disgrace you”…
You’re not that kind of people that Allah would disgrace; you’re not that slave that his Lord would abandon him, because you’re a slave, who does good deeds to the slaves of Allah. You fed them when they were hungry, you clothed them when they were naked, and sympathized with the orphan. Thus, you acted as a father. You forgave those who did wrong to you. Thus, your forgiveness was like that of a mother towards her children.
You have mercy like that of a father or a mother
These are the two merciful ones in this life
Allah did not disgrace you and will never disgrace you. Enjoy your life!
* “You keep good relations with kith and kin”
You keep good relations even with those who abandoned you. You enrich the poor kin, and strengthen the weak kin. You are support for your people and a stake for your relatives. They did not hear but good words from you. They did not touch but good deeds from you. You are a son for their old, a father for their young and a brother for their fellows.
* “You tell the truth”
You never tell lies. You never cheat, commit perjury, or conceal the truth. You have never been charged of even one lie in your life. You have never been stained by the claws of lying even for a single moment.
* “You help the destitute”
The destitute is that one, who can not afford his own needs. You do not only help him, but you support him! You even carry his stuff on your shoulders! No one seeks your help without having his need fulfilled, his weakness comforted and his heart pleased.
* “You serve your guests generously”
What an honored guest that you host! What a great guest that you serve! You prepared the kettles, provided the pillows and fulfilled the needs. Guests spend their nights at your home in safety and hospitality, and they leave it honored and pleased.
*“You assist the deserving calamity-afflicted ones”
Life calamities are countless, and reality misfortunes are enormous. However, you help those afflicted till they overcome their calamities, and you help those agonized till they get over their agony. You are the aid of the miserable, treating their wounds and looking after their orphans.
His Friend is no Exception!
“Abu Bakr”, his great student, follows his steps and practices his morals. When he was tried, he emigrated towards the Land of Habasha, till he reached (Bark Al Ghamad), where he met “Ibn Ad-Dughunah”, the master of the (Peninsula). He asked, “Where are you going, Abu Bakr?” Abu Bakr said, “My people ousted me, so I like to travel in the land, in order to worship my Lord.” Ibn Ad-Dughunah said, “A person like you, Abu Bakr, should not be ousted. You keep good relations with your Kith and kin, tell the truth, help the poor and the destitute, serve your guests generously and assist the deserving calamity-afflicted ones. I’m your protector. Go back and worship your Lord in your land”. Allah will never disgrace the doers of these good deeds. He will never abandon them in the face of a far disbeliever or a near oppressor. Those people are the most worthy of having the power in land. They are the most deserving ones to have pleasure in this life and in the Hereafter. It was incumbent upon Allah to employ persons such as “Ibn Ad-Dughunah” to assist and support them, so that good doers enjoy under the protection of Allah, Glory be to Him. Hence, you should do good deed so your heart is pleased and Allah will never disgrace you.
