TRUST IN ALLAH TA’ALA AND CUT THE ROPE

Just how many of us find ourselves in strangling and suffocating situations which burden our lives more and more with each passing day. Be it an overworked and underpaid job or be it an abusive relationship or any other situation that makes our lives miserable, at the end, like a rope it keeps us bounded and shackled. And because our weak trust and faith in Allah Ta’ala we cannot cut the rope, free ourselves and instead we just opt to hang in there dangling and suffering indefinitely.

Allah Ta’ala is sure to answer our calls when we call unto Him. However, often, His response is not exactly what we expect so we don’t act. Nothing but a shaky faith is responsible for this.

There was once an avid mountain climber who, desperate to conquer a certain peak in the Andes mountain range, initiated his climb after years of careful and solid preparation. However he was somewhat selfish because he desired the glory of being the first to conquer this specific peak to himself and therefore decided to undertake this feat by himself without any other climbers and thus the perilous solitary climb began. He began the ascent and climbed and climbed. Before he knew it many hours had already passed and to his horror he was not even half way up. As he expected to reach the peak in a much shorter time he did not prepare for an overnight stay and therefore had no camping gear. However his resolve was to reach the peak so he continued climbing.

Within the next few hours the darkness began to set and soon it became dark. Night fell with such intensity and heaviness that he could not see much. In fact visibility was reduced to zero. Everything was black. To add to his plight on that night the sky was covered in dense clouds covering whatever stars they may have been and there was no moon.

Nonetheless with greater care he slowly climbed up and up. As he was climbing a ridge at about 100 meters from the top, he suddenly lost his balance, slipped and fell. Plummeting rapidly to the earth below he could only see blotches of darkness that passed. He felt a terrible sensation of being sucked in by gravity. He kept falling... and in those anguishing moments good and bad memories passed through his mind. He was convinced that he would die.

But then he felt a jolt that almost tore him in half. Yes! Like any good and seasoned mountain climber he had staked himself with a long rope tied to his waist. In those moments of stillness, suspended in the air he had no other choice but to shout: "HELP ME GOD. HELP ME!"

All of a sudden he heard a voice from within him telling him... "What do you want me to do?"

"SAVE ME." The man pleaded.

"Do you REALLY think that I can save you?"

"OF COURSE, MY GOD."

"Then cut the rope that is holding you up."

There was another moment of silence and stillness as the man reeled from shock as to the instruction he had just received. The man just held tighter to the rope fearing that he would surely plummet to his death.

 It was reported the next day that a frozen mountain climber was found hanging strongly clutching the rope...
 

TWO FEET OFF THE GROUND.

The above is a clear reflection of many of our lives. How often is it that we just don’t have the courage and strength to let go of that ‘rope’ which shackles and binds us. All the while Allah Ta’ala tells us to place our trust in him and cut the rope.

CUT THE ROPE AND SIMPLY TRUST IN HIM. YOUR FREEDOM COULD WELL LIE RIGHT BENEATH YOUR FEET!
