All power belongs to Allah

(Know that) truly, all might, power, honor and benevolence belong to Allah. (Qur’an 4:139)

Allah wants to show Himself to picture, Allah is apparent in all things.

Truly We have created human beings to be tested (to accept the truth or not). Do they think that no one has power over them? (Qur’an 90:4-5)

What would we see if we examined the world of human affairs in the same way that we analyze a company before buying stocks or bonds? We would want to look to the past performance record of humanity. The whole history of humanity would be studied from the beginning or even before the beginning. We would want to know where the growth occurred and what caused the failures.

If we follow this approach, we will see that whenever a human being said, “I am the greatest,” he was soon brought down by Allah. Whoever says, “I have the power; I am the strongest,” then Allah says that He will show you the truth. When our power is the biggest, that is the time that Allah creates the conditions that destroys that power. Have you noticed this?

More verses from the Qur’an

They denied each one of Our ayats [revelations]. Therefore We seized them with the seizing of Aziz [Might] and Muqtadir [Power]. (Qur’an 54:42)

And how many a generation before them We destroyed, who were mightier than these in power, so much so that they overran the lands! Did they find any refuge (when Allah’s judgment came on them)? (Qur’an 50:36)

(In spite of all this) there are some people who take for themselves rivals to Allah, and they love them the way Allah should be loved. Those who believe should be adamant in their love for Allah. And if only those who are wrongdoers knew now what they will perceive when they see the punishment: that all power belongs to Allah, and that Allah is severe in punishment. (Qur’an 2:165)

The lightning almost takes away their sight. As often as it flashes, they walk in it, and when in darkness, they stand still. If Allah had wished, He could have taken away their hearing and their sight. Truly Allah has power over all things. (Qur’an 2:20)

Both the article and the translation of the verses are from Murshid Shaykh Taner Vargonen Ansari.
