look to the Power of Allaah

“The One who resurrects without any difficulty”

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) comments:

“Nothing makes Him incapable, but some of the creation judge Allaah by analogy with His creation and thus regard the Resurrection far-fetched, because it is – in his view – impossible, and he doesn’t look to the Power of Allaah; he doesn’t judge Allaah as is due to Him, and this is being ignorant of Allaah (‘azza wa jal).”

Shaykh ‘Abd ur-Rahmaan al-‘Ajlaan (hafidhahullaah) comments:

“If he has good thoughts about Allaah, that he will be answered, then he will be answered bi’ithnillaah. But if he says ‘I don’t think I will be answered’ and the like, then he will be deprived of the answer – and refuge is sought in Allaah – because he did not have good thoughts of his Lord.”

it is disbelief

“Having ill thoughts of Allaah”

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) comments:

Having ill thoughts of Allaah, ta’aala, is kufr (disbelief). He, ta’aala, said: {…they thought wrongly of Allaah – the thought of ignorance}, and He, ta’aala, said: {…who think evil thoughts about Allaah: for them is a disgraceful torment; and the Anger of Allaah is upon them, and He has cursed them and prepared Hell for them – and worst indeed is that destination}.”

“And they thought wrongly of Allaah – the thought of ignorance”
~ Surah Aal ‘Imraan, 3:154

Shaykh Sulaymaan bin ‘Abdillaah Aal ash-Shaykh (rahimahullaah) comments:

“Ibn ul-Qayyim said: ‘Most people have ill thoughts of Allaah with regard to what pertains to them and what He does with other than them. So whoever despairs of His Mercy, then he has thought ill of Him; and whoever thinks that if he leaves something for His Sake, He will not replace it with better than it – or one who does something for His Sake, that He won’t give him better than it – then he has thought ill of Him; and whoever thinks that if he sincerely hopes in and fears Him, and humbles himself before Him and implores Him, and asks Him and seeks His help and puts his trust in Him, that He will disappoint him, then he has thought ill of Him.'”

“Allaah says: ‘I am as My slave thinks of Me'”
~ Saheeh al-Bukhaari #7405

Shaykh ‘Abd ul-Muhsin al-‘Abbaad (hafidhahullaah) comments:

“Meaning, a person should think good of his Lord, and he hopes and expects from Allaah that He will make his wish come true for him; and he should not be heedless or negligent or say ‘I called upon Him but He did not answer me,’ but rather he should have good thoughts of Allaah, ‘azza wa jal, and be persistent in supplicating to Him; he should not be lazy nor heedless. And Allaah, ta’aala, loves for His slaves to supplicate to Him, because du’aa is worship.

Thinking good of Allaah, ‘azza wa jal, is that a person asks Allaah, ‘azza wa jal, while hoping and expecting that Allaah, ‘azza wa jal, will answer him. So when he asks Allaah, ‘azza wa jal, he has good thoughts of Him, subhaanahu wa ta’aala. It does not come to his mind that He will not answer him, that He will not fulfill his wish; but rather, he should be sincere in his request and know that Allaah will be as His slave’s good thoughts of Him. So a person should ask Allaah, ‘azza wa jal, and be sincere and firm in asking; and he does not become doubtful or say ‘I will not be forgiven,’ but rather he should hope and expect that Allaah, ‘azza wa jal, will forgive him. And he should ask with sincerity and know that Allaah, ta’aala, responds to the supplication of the supplicant when he calls upon Him, and that He forgives the one who seeks His forgiveness. So he asks Allaah, ‘azza wa jal, persistently, and he has good thoughts of Allaah, subhaanahu wa ta’aala.”
