Tie Your Camel

Anas ibn Malik reported: A man said, “O Messenger of Allah, should I tie my camel and trust in Allah, or should I leave her untied and trust in Allah?” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Tie her and trust in Allah.

As-Salamu-Alaikum pretty people….!! 🙂 Hope you all are doing well.Firstly apologies for being so irregular in updating my blog. Certain personal reasons for this. I ask forgiveness from Allah for this irregularity.. In Sha Allah from now on I will put all my efforts and produce the best content for you people…And on time.

It happens most of the times in our life where we have to make certain critical decisions which tend to transform our lives completely. Once made and evaluated they might either be beneficial for us or might put us into loss. Moreover there might be cases where you put immense efforts but do not get the result. If the decisions benefit us then there’s no vain but if they go against us… Then, we end up blaming situations or people around us and above all GOD.

“Why does this always happen with me??” “Do I deserve such difficulties?” “Why GOD why always me?” .. these are the thoughts and questions we always ask when things do not go as we wish. We come across so many situations in life where we win or lose.. some times the loss is too heavy and we end up questioning Allah’s plans. We find no answers to our questions and solutions to our problems, we find no fruitful results, nothing goes well and we eventually end up losing hope. But always remember there is no question without an answer…And there is no problem without a solution… 🙂

Tie your camel.. I’m in love with this Hadith.. it is so profound in it’s meaning. Rasulullah(SAW) said tie your camel and trust in Allah. This simple Hadith is enough to mould our lifestyles. The only thing and the best thing a believer can fit in his/her mind is that putting effort is our part but fruit of our efforts is Allah’s part.. do your best in any situation. When you make a certain decision carry on with all the effort you can put in.. do not worry about the result. Allah will never let your efforts down. Trust Him.But in some situations you do tie your camel tightly but the result might not be good.. it might be possible that inspite of tying your camel perfectly you may lose it but do not feel sad.. cuz it’s all Allah’s plan… He knows it all.. He knows that when you need something and when you don’t… 

At this point I’m sure many of us might be confused that when the result is in Allah’s hands and He knows it all then what is the need to put effort in our life. Things will happen as they should happen.. this I would say that, is a foolish thought. It is as though you want a glass of water, you are too thirsty and you are sitting in one place and waiting for a glass of water to come to you by itself. Will it be possible..? Hey there it’s like you would need some mental treatment. Anything you wish to have requires some effort. It’s your effort that will make you successful. Put your efforts and trust in Allah. Allah will never let you down, He will never get your efforts go in vain. The only exception is that it might be possible that what you think is beneficial for you might really be the opposite. 

In paragraph-3 I said that every question has a answer.So I would express that in these three points:-

  1. Put your efforts and trust Allah.
  2. Your efforts won’t get wasted. You will get it’s fruit.
  3. But if you fail in your efforts, then again trust Allah because He is The Knower of The Unseen.

 

So whenever you don’t find an answer to your question have  patience and trust Allah. If things don’t go well stop worrying and flow with the flow. Never lose hope, continue putting efforts and believe in your decisions. Allah will help you.

Do comment and let me know your thoughts. If you find it useful then do share it with others. Until next time.. Salam 🙂

  2. You have spoken truth.
    SubhanALLAH it is so easy to forget that at the end ALLAH knows what is best for us, so many times what is an apparent loss to us is in reality a huge favor from ALLAH (subhanahu wa tala).
    Along with keeping this hadeeth as my guide, I have firm belief in Istikhara. Before even one goes to tie his/her camel praying 2 rakah and doing istikhara du’a (from which we don’t expect any specific visual answer via dream or whatever) really instills the concept of “if it is good for me give me or else take it away from me.” I personally feel doing Istikhara gives me a huge sense of contentment even when something doesn’t work out because I know (and remember bidhnillah because of doing istikhara) that it wasn’t good for me that is why ALLAH didn’t let it work out.
    Sorry for a huge comment on Istikhara, but I feel this hadeeth and istikhara really go well.

JazakiAllahu khairan kaseeran for sharing your thoughts!!! this 2 step procedure(Hadith+istikhara), is simple and is a solution to all our queries!!

  3. I agree with you, I absolutely love this hadith! The fact that we are responsible for the efforts we make, while recognising that with Allah lies all power – la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah – is just perfection ❤ I love how you have reflected on how we will receive the ‘fruit’ of asking, even if we don’t get exactly what we want.. Allah knows what we do not! 🙂 Great work mashaa Allah, may Allah put barakah in your writing!
