Broken Circumstances Ibrahim Dewla

Recommended Posts

This is an excerpt from one of Ibrahim Dewla’s speeches. Its translated more or less meaning.

Whatever undesirable circumstance, it’s not there to degrade a human being. Rather an undesirable circumstance is test from Allah.

Allah will place an undesirable circumstance to see how much patience one will exhibit & steadfast one will be.

Thus, don’t be frightened that my circumstances have become difficult. Because the devil comes in these circumstances & makes a human hopeless.  “Your circumstances never improved despite how long you have been practicing. How long you have been supplicating, praying, (its inconsequential) nothing has happened.” to make human despair from Allah.

In our faith hopelessness is disbelief. Not in any circumstance should a human being not be hopeful of Allah. Sometimes Allah delays what you are seeking. Allah’s name/attribute is ‘Jabbar’. Jabbar means almighty. Jabbar also means someone who rehabilitates broken bones.  Allah is rehabilitator of broken circumstances.

Allah possesses both names and ability. What is unique about Allah is not only does he possesses names/attributes but Allah is also able. False deities/partners (to Allah) have many names/attributes but they are unable/powerless. They are only namesake.

Our Allah has name, is able with his greatness. Through work of Prophets Allah reveals his greatness. This is why circumstances of Prophets are trying. Then Allah rectifies those circumstances. So that they know the rectifier is Allah.

Reflect on this! Prophet (saw) ‘s parents died. From onset, circumstances were difficult he (saw) never seen his father. Because before his (saw) birth father departed. He (saw) saw his mother only for 6 years. On return trip from Madinah mother passed away. Grandfather was present who loved Prophet (saw) dearly. When he (saw) age was 8 yrs old he passed away. Prophet (saw) said that he was 8 yrs old while he walking underneath funeral procession of his grandfather. 

Then his uncle raised him. Uncle was not affluent. In terms of wealth the family was modest. So Prophet (saw) said he worked as goatherder for wages. Qirat was currency during that time in Makkah. He (saw) said for goat herding I would be given few qirat from people in Makkah.

Since very beginning circumstances were difficult. Upon Prophethood further difficulties came. And in all those circumstances Allah protected Prophet (saw). These are lives of Prophets. Their circumstances were broken but they were steadfast on their mission. Then Allah rectified their circumstances. So the Prophet (saw)’s life is an example for people.
