How To Take Allah As A Companion

Updated: Mar 21

The following is an excerpt from the transcript of “Companionship with Allah”, a Sout Ilaahi Live Lecture by Shaykh Walead Mosaad.


Agreeing With His Decree For Us


The first step, and the crucial step to take Allah as our companion, is to be in agreement with Him. How do we be in agreement with Allah SWT? We have to be in agreement with that which He has decreed for us; with the circumstances that He has put our way, not to have an objection in our heart to the way that things are.


Yes, we have our own volition and our own intent; these are things that Allah has endowed us with and blessed us with, and that’s why He has made certain things upon us obligatory. So you are a mukallaf; you are held responsible for things and the acts that you do and the things that you don’t do. If you have people around you that depend upon you, whom Allah SWT has obligated upon you certain things to fulfill their rights, then they translate into responsibilities on your end. 


That’s where our will, volition, and intent is supposed to be used: in fulfilling the commands of Allah SWT. But if we fill most of our time, mental energy and spiritual energy trying to reconcile, change, or wish for other than what Allah SWT has decreed for us, then we’re not using our will and intent in the manner that Allah SWT has decreed for us. He says yes, these circumstances will come—“Surely, We will try you and test you with something of loss of life, profit, sickness, and so on and so forth, but the feeling of serenity will come to the ones who are sabir (patient) and forbearing.”
