Berićet – 11 dio

Slide1Ono što bi trebali znati je, da berićet dolazi sa vjerovanjem (imanom) dok nevjerovanje donosi propast. Šta je to berićet? Bereket je povezanost Božanske dobrote sa određenom stvari, pa ako se javlja u nečemu sitnom, povećava ga, a ako se javlja u nečemu velikom onda donosi korist. Najveći plodovi bereketa u svemu jesu korištenje tog bereketa na putu poslušnosti Allahu dž,š.

Kaže Allah dž,š, u suri Earaf 96: A da su stanovnici sela i gradova vjerovali i grijeha se klonili, Mi bismo im blagoslove i s neba i iz zemlje slali, ali, oni su poricali, pa smo ih kažnjavali za ono što su zaradili.

وَلَوْ أَنَّ أَهْلَ الْقُرَىٰ آمَنُوا وَاتَّقَوْا لَفَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِم بَرَكَاتٍ مِّنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَلَـٰكِن كَذَّبُوا فَأَخَذْنَاهُم بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ

Zatim kaže uzvišeni u suri Talak 2-3: A onome koji se Allaha boji, On će izlaz naći, i opskrbiće ga odakle se i ne nada; onome koji se u Allaha uzda, On mu je dovoljan.

وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللَّـهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُ مَخْرَجًا ﴿٢﴾وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ ۚ وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّـهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ ۚإِنَّ اللَّـهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ ۚ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللَّـهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْرًا

Što znači: Ko god bude bogobojazan u onome što je Allah naredio i ostavi ono što je Allah zabranio, tada će Allah dž,š, naći izlaza za svakog onog ko se nađe u teškoj situaciji i dat će mu opskrbu odakle se i ne nada.

Poslanik Muhammed a,s, je rekao: Da se vi oslanjate istinski na Allaha dž,š, On bi vas hranio kao što ptice hrani spavaju gladne, a lete site. (Ahmed, En-Nesai, Ibn Madže, El-Hakim i Et-Tirmizi)

عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ , رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ , عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ , قَالَ : ” لَوْ أَنَّكُمْ تَتَوَكَّلُونَ عَلَى اللَّهِ حَقَّ تَوَكُّلِهِ لَرَزَقَكُمْ كَمَا يَرْزُقُ الطَّيْرَ تَغْدُو خِمَاصًا وَتَرُوحُ بِطَانًا 

Ebu Hurejre r,a, prenosi da je Poslanik a,s, rekao: O ljudi, Allah je dobar i prima samo ono što je dobro. Allah je naredio vjernicima ono što je naredio i Poslanicima, te je rekao u suri Mu’minun: O Poslanici, dozvoljenim i lijepim jelima se hranite i dobra djela činite, jer Ja dobro znam što vi radite! Imam Muslim.

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : ( إن الله طيب لا يقبل إلا طيبا ، وإن الله أمر المؤمنين بما أمر به المرسلين ، فقال تعالى : { يا أيها الرسل كلوا من الطيبات واعملوا صالحا } ( المؤمنون : 51 ) ، وقال تعالى : { يا أيها الذين آمنوا كلوا من طيبات ما رزقناكم } ( البقرة : 172 ) ، ثم ذكر الرجل يطيل السفر ، أشعث أغبر ، يمدّ يديه إلى السماء : يا رب يا رب ، ومطعمه حرام ، ومشربه حرام ، وملبسه حرام ، وغُذّي بالحرام ، فأنّى يُستجاب له ؟ ) رواه مسلم .

Jedan učenjak je rekao za onoga ko jede haram da će njegovi udovi biti neposlušni Allahu dž,š, sviđalo se to čovjeku ili ne, a za onoga ko jede halal da će njegovi udovi činiti dobro i da će im se dati dopuštenje da traže dobro.

To me podsjeća na priču o starcu koji je uspio skočiti veliku udaljenost koju mladići nisu mogli skočiti. Kada su ga mladići upitali kako je uspio skočiti toliku udaljenost, on je odgovorio: Ovo su moji udovi: ja sam ih zaštitio od činjenja grijeha dok sam bio mlad pa ih je Allah sačuvao kada sam ostario.

Kaže Allah dž,š, u suri Ibrahim 7: I kad je Gospodar vaš objavio: Ako budete zahvalni, Ja ću vam, sigurno, još više dati; budete li nezahvalni, kazna Moja doista će stroga biti.

وَإِذْ تَأَذَّنَ رَبُّكُمْ لَئِن شَكَرْتُمْ لَأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ ۖ وَلَئِن كَفَرْتُمْ إِنَّ عَذَابِي لَشَدِيدٌ

Što znači; ako budete poštovali Moje blagodate kojim Sam vas opksrbio Ja ću vam još više dati. Allah dž,š, obećava onome ko Mu je zahvalan da će mu povećati bereket, a kad Allah obeća On svoje obečanje ispuni.

Poslanik a,s, kaže: Ko bude ustrajan u traženju oprosta od Allaha dž,š, , Allah dž,š, rasteretit će ga svake brige, naći ćemu izlaz iz svake nevolje i opskrbit ga odakle se i ne nada. (Ebu Davud i Ibn Madže)

النبي – صلى الله عليه وسلم – أنه قال:

“من لزم الاستغفار جعل الله له من كل همٍّ فرجاً، ومن كل ضيق مخرجاً، ورزقه من حيث لا يحتسب”.

 Blessings – Barakah 11th part

Slide1The issue that we have to know is that blessings come with Faith, while kufr (the disbelieve) brings torment.

What is Barakah? Barakah is the attachment of Divine goodness to a thing, so if it occurs in something little, it increases it. And if it occurs in something much it benefits. And the greatest fruit of Barakah in all things is to use that barakah in the obedience of Allah (Subahanahu Wa Ta’ala).Allah says in surah Al-A’raf 96: And if only the people of the cities had believed and feared Allah, We would have opened upon them blessings (all the kinds) from the heaven and the earth; but they denied [the messengers, the truth] so We seized them for what they were earning.

And Allah says in surah At-Talaq 2-3: And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him a way out, and will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah – then He is sufficient for him.

Meaning:  Whoever has taqwa of Allah in what He has commanded avoids what He has forbidden, and then Allah will make a way out for him from every difficulty and will provide for him from recourses he never anticipated or thought about.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “If only you relied on Allah a true reliance, He would provide sustenance for you just as He does the birds: They fly out in the morning empty and return in the afternoon with full stomachs. (Ahmad, An-Nasai, Ibn Majah, Al-Hakim and At-Tirmidhi)

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: O people, Allah is good and He therefore, accepts only that which is good” (Scholars say this refers to Halal income and the importance of it).

A scholar also said of the one who eats Haram, that his limbs will disobey Allah whether he likes it or not, and that the one who eats Halal and seeks Halal income, his limbs will also do good and will be given the permission to seek goodness.

This concept of your limbs being ‘blessed’ and enabled to do good is truly a blessing and a barakah we should all seek. It reminds me of a story of an old man who jumped a large distance that the young men were unable to jump. When the young men asked the old man how he did it, he replied: These are our limbs: we protected them from committing sins when we were young, so Allah preserved them for us when we got old”.

Allah says in the surah Ibrahim 7: And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor] but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.

Meaning if you appreciated My favor on you, I will give you more of it.  So Allah is promising the person who thanks Him an increase in goodness and blessings, and Allah never breaks His promises.

The prophet Muhammad said in a hadith: A servant might be deprived of a provision (the was written for him) because of a sin that he commits.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “If anyone continually asks forgiveness from Allah, Allah will appoint for him a way out of every distress, and a relief from every anxiety, and will provide for him from where he did not reckon.
