Posted in 1. Al Fatihah, Akhlaq (Good Character), Arabic, Knowing Allah

1:5 We are always in need of You, our Creator

1:5 You alone we worship and You alone we seek help.

Nasta’in comes from word isti’aanah which means seeking help to complete tasks.

Nouman explains that this shows that we must start exercising Allah’s commands no matter how bad our situation is. And to complete them, seek help and leave the rest to Allah. We shouldn’t use our current situation as an excuse to disobey Allah.

We need Your help in worshipping You and guiding us to the right path as the created are always in need of the Creator because whatever we do are subject to sunnatullah (His natural rules e.g. chemical reactions, physical properties etc), shariatullah (His rules imposed on mankind for implementation) and what He wants.

Our goals, no matter how much effort we put in achieving them even when the whole of mankind works together, are not achievable except with His leave.

When we seek help from others, it is Allah who make them help us, not them themselves. By helping others, they actually helped themselves by doing good deeds, for their own sake in the Hereafter.

However, Allah commanded us to show gratitude to all.

We are never in control, place us within Your Grace o Lord.
