Being chosen by Allah


Being chosen by Allah

Just as how we cannot determine our physical appearance, neither can we determine our destiny. It is only Allah who determines the birth of a man, his community, his family and the things that he will come across through all his life. It is again Allah who inspires us the wisdom and the sense.

In fact, our faith in Allah does not depend on our characteristics. Because, again Allah is the one and only who grants us faith. He is the one who guides, teaches and trains. As Moses replied pharaoh "our lord is he that gave all creatures their distinctive form and then rightly guided them." "He said: "our lord is he who gave to each (created) thing its form and nature, and further, gave (it) guidance." "(ta-ha 50)

Therefore, believers are the ones who have been favored and chosen by Allah: "thy lord does create and choose as he pleases: no choice have they (in the matter): glory to Allah! and far is he above the partners they ascribe (to him)!"al-qasas 68)

But the ones that go to hell are the ones who totally deserve it. Because they rebel against Allah who created them and the wrath of Allah serves them right. for the ones who are let into the gardens; Allah grants them his blessings and forgives their sins.

The believers must understand that they have been chosen by Allah, and must be grateful and praise Allah with all their hearts for what he had given them as courtesy. All the manners of the believers should reflect the honor of this privilege. the believers should see that they have been chosen among millions of people and that they are the few blessed servants of Allah, selected and drawn out of a community whose members are totally in loss.

"by (the token of) time (through the ages), verily man is in loss, except such as have faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of truth, and of patience and constancy." (Al-asr 1-3)

is there a higher honor than being rescued and exalted above all the people by the lord of the universe?
