Rajab 1440 Week 2

Qur’an, Sura Fatir, Chapter 35

2. That which Allah opens to human beings of His mercy and kindness, no one can withhold, and that which He withholds, none can release after Him. He is Al Aziz [The Revered and Most Precious One], Al Hakim [The Wise One].

 

Qur’an, Sura Al Fath, Chapter 48

4. It is He Who sends down tranquility into the hearts of the mu’minin [believers], so that they might increase their iman [certainty of conviction and connection to Allah]. To Allah belong the keepers of the heavens and the earth, and know that Allah is Alim [All-Knowing] and Hakim [Wise].

18. Truly, Allah was well pleased with the mu’minin when they swore allegiance to you (O Muhammad) beneath the tree, and He knew what was in their hearts, and He sent down on them tranquility, and He has rewarded them with an imminent victory
