Inna lillaahi wa inna ilayhi Raaji’oon

We say this statement when someone dies. Also some of us may say this sentence when they lose something, suffer a setback or harm. 

But……… you know what it means?

Sure, everyone know that it obviously means ‘To ALLAH we belong and to Him is our return.’ But that’s not what I am talking about.

I mean ….do you REALLY, TRULY understand these words and their implications in a Muslim’s life?

It means …whatever we have is not really ours. It belongs to ALLAH.

Take a look around you; everything you see, all that you have and all that there is….in you, on you, around you….belongs to ALLAH, alone.

It is ALLAH Who has given you all the property and goods you possess, and that He is the true Owner of them all.
So the cars that you own, the houses that you live in, the businesses you possess all truly belong to ALLAH
The kids that He blessed you with, the health that He gave you, the time that He has allowed you are all ALLAH’s property.

Even the bodies we live in and the life that we have belongs to ALLAH alone.

“And to ALLAH belongs the inheritance of the heavens and the earth….” (Surah Aal-Imraan:180)

“The kingdom of the heavens and the earth and everything in them belongs to Allah. He has power over all things.” (Surat al-Ma'ida: 120)

"Say: 'To ALLAH belongs the East and the West…" (Surah al-Baqarah:142)
