except for a wisdom

Source: Sharh Riyaadh is-Saaliheen; tape no. 77a/4

“The supplication of one of you will be answered as long as he is not hasty, such that he says: ‘I supplicated and supplicated but I was not answered.’ So then he stops supplicating.”
~ Saheeh Muslim #2735

Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) comments:

“And this from the ignorance of a person because Allaah, subhaanahu wa ta’aala, will not prevent you from what you made du’aa to Him for except for a wisdom or due to the presence of something that is preventing the du’aa from being answered.

So don’t despair and make du’aa as du’aa is worship, so why wouldn’t you do a lot of it? Do much of it and don’t have ill thoughts of Allaah, ‘azza wa jal, for indeed Allaah, ta’aala, is All-Wise.”

after a few nights

Source: The Mother of the Believers Hafsa daughter of ‘Umar, Section of Woman & Family; Shaykh al-Haddaadi’s website

“And Hafsa thus became a mother of the believers”

Shaykh ‘Ali bin Yahyaa al-Haddaadi (hafidhahullaah), after mentioning the death of Hafsa’s husband Khunais bin Hudhaafa, says:

“And there is no doubt that the loss of a husband is one of the greatest calamities that can befall a woman, and in this manner Allaah tests His slaves with that which He wills from different types of trials until it is distinguished who is patient and submits, and who is impatient and angry; and He will give the patient ones their reward in full without reckoning.

‘Umar, radiAllaahu ‘anhu – the father who was merciful, compassionate and concerned about the affair of his daughter – wanted good for her and took (the necessary) steps with regard to that. ‘Umar understood that it is not good for a woman to stay without a husband just like it is not good for a man to stay without a wife, so he started to search for a righteous man for her and he chose ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Affaan, radiAllaahu ‘anhu. He then presented her to him (for marriage), but ‘Uthmaan replied that it seemed good for him not to marry at that time; so (‘Umar) was upset with him that his daughter had missed a man of good and excellence like ‘Uthmaan. But he did not give up the search; he then met Abu Bakr and proposed to give Hafsa in marriage to him, but Abu Bakr kept silent and did not say anything back to him, so (‘Umar) was more upset with him than he was with ‘Uthmaan.

And after a few nights, Allaah brought relief, and a destiny came which was perhaps not expected by Hafsa nor her father; indeed the leader of the children of Aadam, (the Prophet), sallAllaahu’ alayhi wa sallam, came to propose to her so ‘Umar married her off to him, and Hafsa thus became a mother of the believers.”

Allaah will be in front of you

Source: Saheeh al-Bukhaari, Sharh Kitaab id-Da’waat; tape no. 2a

“You are the One who puts forward (al-Muqaddim) and You are the One who puts back (al-Mu’akkhir)”
~ Saheeh al-Bukhaari #6317

Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) comments:

“Whoever Allaah puts forward (with regard to something), there is none to put him back; and whoever Allaah puts back, there is none to put him forward. If the whole nation gathered to put back that which Allaah has put forward, they will not be able to do that. And if you believe in this, you will rely on Allaah, and all the people will be behind your back, and the One who will be in front of you is who? Allaah, subhaanahu wa ta’aala. ‘You are the One who puts forward and You are the One who puts back’ – the One who puts forward and the One who puts back with regard to situations, times, places, everything.”

closer than everything else

“And whosoever puts his trust in Allaah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allaah will accomplish His purpose. Indeed Allaah has set a measure for all things”
~ Surat ut-Talaaq, 65:3

Shaykh ‘Abd ur-Rahmaan as-Sa’dee (rahimahullaah) comments:

“{And whosoever puts his trust in Allaah}, meaning, with regard to his religious and worldly affair by depending on Allaah to bring what will benefit him and remove what will harm him, and by trusting in Him to make that easy, {then He will suffice him}, meaning: He will suffice him for the matter about which he is putting his trust in Him; and if the matter is in the provision of the All-Rich, the All-Powerful, All-Mighty, the Most Merciful, then it is closer to the slave than everything else, but perhaps the divine wisdom requires its delay to the appropriate time for him. So this is why the He, Most High, says: {Verily, Allaah will accomplish His purpose}, meaning: His decree will certainly be carried out, but – {Indeed Allaah has set a measure for all things}, meaning: a time and an amount, which cannot be exceeded nor missed.”
