[Audhu Billahi minash shaitanir rajeem]

[Rabbana la tuzigh quloobana ba’da ith hadaytana wahab lana min ladunka rahma innaka anta al-Wahhab]

[Rabbish rahli sadri, wa yassirli amri, wah lul uqdatan min lisaani, yaf kahu qauli]

[AlHamdulillah was Salatu Wassalamu ‘ala Rasulullah Wa ‘ala Aalihi Wasahbihi Ajma’een]

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu!
“Quran Weekly”

today with the 8th Ayah of Surah Al-Imran

I want to share with you some reflections from a very powerful and very beautiful dua of the Quran

we turn to Allah and we say:
[Rabbana la tuzigh quloobana]

I chose this dua especially of all the Ayat of Al-Imran
I was thinking which Ayah should we begin with

in this series – I chose this Ayah because

Ramadan is particularly a relevant and good time for this dua

“Master! do not let our hearts deviate”

[la tuzigh quloobana]

[zāḡha] in Arabic is when something curves slightly and you don’t realize it’s curved

you know – like they used to use it for a gravedigger

who’s supposed to dig a rectangle, right?

but you know when you’re the act of digging – you don’t really keep track of a straight line

so by the time he gets out, it’s like this

this bend

in his grave

it’s like – you know – almost like a sea

and so

because of that problem – this was called [zayḡh] in Arabic

now from that – you get that – a person whose going straight

and doesn’t even realize when they took a wrong turn

and they deviated

So this person is [za’igh]

you know

and so the dua is: [Rabbana la tuzigh quloobana]

“don’t allow our hearts to go deviated”

you know – and deviation isn’t like 90 degree – like you’re just going this way – you started going that way

you just

forget about it – No!

the heart – when it gets close to Allah

then

it doesn’t get distant from Allah in a split second – it

inches away from Allah – little by little by little by little by little

and we’re asking Allah to put protective measures in place

so that we don’t

slowly but surely get away from Allah without realizing it

and before you know it, you have no sensation of Emaan anymore

you know – some of you are feeling a closeness to Allah in this month that you haven’t felt in a long time

and you’re praying – and you’re in the Masjid – there people around you – there’s somebody making dua – and they’re crying

and you’re

you kind of just

catch on that feeling and you turn to Allah and you start crying too

and then you’re like: “man! I wish I always had this feeling”

when you say to yourself

“Ya Allah! I wish I always had this feeling”

that’s the time to make this dua

“Ya Allah! don’t let our hearts migrate away”

“deviate away”

[ba’da ith hadaytana]

“after you’ve guided us”

“after you’ve guided us”

interesting right? Allah didn’t say:

after You’ve guided them”

[ba’da ith hadaytaha]

after You’ve guided the hearts”

He said: “after You have guided us”

it is as though, all we are is our heart

so if the heart hasn’t deviated, then we ourselves, our entire being is guided

so beautiful !

So [Rabbana la tuzigh quloobana ba’da ith hadaytana]

then He says: [wahab lana min ladunka rahma]

very powerful language

He says: “grant us”

[hiba] in Arabic is a gift

[wahaba] the verb

is to give a big gift

you know – a massive gift

ya Allah! give us the great grant”

“the generous grant – the gift”

“that comes specially from your secret vaults”

now, I use this language carefully

because the words [ladun] in Arabic is not just used for something you possess

but something you possess secretly

something you possess in your private collection

that nobody else has seen – when you pull something out of there and give it to someone

[hatha min ladunni]

if something is in your possession – like – there’s as a pen in my pocket, I give it to you

it’s [hatha min indi]

it’s from me

and [inda] is used in the Quran too

but when you find [ladun], it’s special

it’s out of the ordinary – it’s from

some secret mercy from Allah – in other words

it’s as though, you’re saying: “Ya Allah!”

please listen to this carefully, by the way

“I have turned away from you before, time and time and time again”

I got close to you, and then I migrated away, and then I got close to you and I migrated away

I’ve been through this before – this is a cycle for me

and so when you get into a cycle, you start thinking – I start thinking myself

It’s going to happen again

It’s typical

it’s nothing new about this

and that’s the time to ask Allah: [wahab lana min ladunka rahma]

ya Allah! there must be some secret weapon of mercy”

that you have in your arsenal

that you will grant me this time

that this cycle will break

that I’m actually going to continue to migrate towards you and my heart will not turn away from you

you know

This is an Ayah of hope that we don’t look at our track record in the past and say “you know what? I’m hopeless”

I had to go through these cycles all the time

[wahab lana min ladunka rahma innaka anta al-Wahhab]

and not even [al-Wāhib]

You no doubt

are the Giver of gifts who gives a lot

and gives repeatedly and over and over and over again

“Ya Allah! I don’t want this gift one time”

“for You to pull out that special vault of your love and mercy and your guidance”

“and the straightening out of my heart – I don’t want it one time”

“I know I’ll need this again tomorrow”

“and I’ll need it again the day after”

“and I’ll need it again the day after”

“so I’ll call You – the One who gives continuous

“continuous and repeated gifts”
Subhan’Allah!

what a dua to ask Allah – you know

we talk about Ramadan fever coming off afterwards

this is one of those duas

when that fever won’t come off

and you keep turning to Allah and saying

[rabbana atina min ladunka rahma]

actually [rabbana hab lana]

[Rabbana la tuzigh quloobana ba’ada ith hadaytana wahab lana min ladunka rahma innaka anta al-wahhab]

may Allah Azzawajal make us all recipient of his most beautiful gift

His loving mercy
[barak Allahu li walakum.. Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu]
