Ma sha Allah: Acknowledge Allah with gratitude (Sura Al Kahf)

Dr Uthman Lateef (a.k.a. Osman Latif)

Sura Al Kahf tells us about a conversation between two men, one rich and one poor. The rich man was so full of himself, and so arrogant, that he forgot to thank Allah for his good fortune. He considered himself superior to his poorer neighbour. Then Allah caused a storm to destroy all his wealthy gardens and he was left utterly destitute. His poorer neighbour, a man of true faith in Allah, reminded him always to acknowledge Allah with these words:

Ma sha Allah, la kuwwata illaa bil Laah” 

“This is the Will of Allah. There is no power and no strength except from Allah”
