Story Of Ibrahim

Student of Al Huda
And certainly did Our messengers come to Abraham with good tidings; they said, “Peace.” He said, “Peace,” and did not delay in bringing [them] a roasted calf.
But when he saw their hands not reaching for it, he distrusted them and felt from them apprehension. They said, “Fear not. We have been sent to the people of Lot.”
And his Wife was standing, and she smiled. Then We gave her good tidings of Isaac and after Isaac, Jacob.
She said, “Woe to me! Shall I give birth while I am an old woman and this, my husband, is an old man? Indeed, this is an amazing thing!”
They said, “Are you amazed at the decree of Allāh? May the mercy of Allāh and His blessings be upon you, people of the house. Indeed, He is Praiseworthy and Honorable.” [Hud: 69-73]
There are many lessons that we can take from these mentioned verses. Some of them include that we should never think something to be out of the control of Allah (swt). He can do anything he wants. Also look at the character of Ibrahim (as) his guests come and he straight away goes to get food. We should also look after our guests in this manner as it shows a good quality.

    If one were to take the ‘guest’ thought a little further and look at it symbolically, it can be concluded that everything in our sphere of rights/ownership/responsibility is a ‘guest’ for us. Time in itself is a guest. Its something that visits us and then leaves, how we choose to treat it entirely up to us. Praying isha at the time of isha is taking care of your ‘guest’, praying Fajr at fajr is taking care of your ‘guest’.

    Similarly any test that befalls us is a ‘guest’ because its visiting us and will eventually leave. Its a little complicated though, considering some tests take forever and some are over in the matter of moments. So if your ‘guest’ which in the context of my post is a ‘test’ is a testy husband, you better suck it up and take good care of it. Be gentle, kind, forgiving (insert other great qulaities of a muslim wife) because once this test is over its not going to return, but how you decide to deal with it (host it) is up to you but will be engraved into your book of deeds, and also in his heart (haha, just had to add that!) 😀
