"Whosoever is in the heavens and on earth begs of Him. Everyday He has a matter to bring forth (such as giving honour to some, disgrace to some, life to some, death to some, etc.)?" -Quran 55:29
When there is a violent storm and the seas are turbulent, the occupants of the boat call out, "Oh Allah!"
When the camel-driver and the caravan are lost in the desert, they call out, "Oh Allah!"
When disaster and calamity occur, the afflicted call out, "Oh Allah!"
When doors are shut before those who seek to enter through them and barriers are placed before those who are in need-they all cry out, "Oh Allah!"
When all plans end in failure, all hope is lost, and the path becomes constricted, "Oh Allah!" is called out.
When the earth, vast and wide through it is, is straitened for you, causing your soul to feel constricted, call out, "Oh Allah!"
To Allah ascend all good words, the sincere supplication, the tears of the innocent, and the invocations of the afflicted. Hands and eyes are extended to Him in times of hardship and misfortune. The tongue chants, cries out, and mentions His name. The heart finds peace, the soul finds rest, the nerves are relaxed, and the intellect is awakened-these are all achieved when we remember Allah-'How perfect He is, the Exalted'
Allah is very gracious and kind to His slaves. -Quran 42:19
