“We Seized them with Punishment—but they Humbled Not Themselves …”

March 29, 2020 § Leave a comment

Shaikh Saleh Sindee said, “It’s not the physical deaths due to an epidemic that I am fearful of, since the number of deaths due to car accidents is much greater, what I worry about is the death of one’s heart:

وَلَقَدْ أَخَذْنَاهُم بِالْعَذَابِ فَمَا اسْتَكَانُوا لِرَبِّهِمْ وَمَا يَتَضَرَّعُونَ

‘And indeed We seized them with punishment—but they humbled not themselves to their Lord, nor do they supplicate in humility.’” [23:76]

Allaah said, “And We send not the signs except to warn, and to make them afraid [of destruction].” 17:59

Qataadah said in explanation of the above verse, “And verily Allaah causes the people to become frightened with whichever signs He wants—so that they might take heed, so that they might remember, so that they might turn back [to Him].”
