Dignity of admitting at God’s Court
Surah ‘Ibraahiim (Abraham) – 14
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
رَبَّنَآ إِنَّكَ تَعْلَمُمَا نُخْفِى وَمَا نُعْلِنُ وَمَا يَخْفَىٰ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ مِن شَىْءٍ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَلَا فِى ٱلسَّمَآءِ 38
|38. Our Lord! Lo! Thou knowest that which we hide and that which we proclaim. And nothing in the earth or in the heaven is hidden from Allah.||38. Rabba-naaa ‘innaKa ta’-lamu maa nukh-fii wa maa nu’-lin. Wa maa yakhfaa ‘alAllaahi min- shay-‘in fil-‘arzi wa laa fis-samaaa’.|
Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) was representing recently (in the previous verse) before Allah Almighty that He (peace be upon him) brought His son and wife; and colonized them in barren jungle near His house Ka’-bah. He (peace be upon him) liked nearness of “The Square Building” (Ka’-bah) because by this, it would be easy for them to establish the custom of regular worship.
He (peace be upon him) prayed: O Allah! Incline the hearts of some people that they may yearn toward my people, provide them with abundant fruits and guide them so that they may be Your thankful servants. Then, Abraham (peace be upon him) supplicated earnestly: I am not repeating these applications before You for the purpose that You don’t know. Reason of my prayer is that I should remember Your favors and honors.
After that Abraham (peace be upon him) entreated more: it is greatest blessing on me that You bestowed me dignity of admitting at Your Court. You know more than me the same matters. But You have been hearing attentively the supplications of mankind for their desire of pleasing. You are well Aware of secrets which we hide and matters which we proclaim. Not only this, but nothing is hidden from You (Allah Almighty); whether that is in the heaven or in the earth. It is only a form of granting taste of prayers to Your servants, which You have given to them with Your countless Bounty.
