“He (Allah) did not comply with the wishes of the people with regard to me, so why should I comply with their wishes with regard to Him (Allah)”
When Najashi (Negus), the king of Abyssinia, was being pressured by his court men to hand over the Muslim refugees back to Quraish, he denied and uttered these powerful words.
There are many who wish us harm, and if Allah was to listen to them in regard to us, we would be doomed.
So if Allah doesn’t harm us simply because people wish so, why should we disobey Allah just because people wish so!
Beautiful words which have the power to transform our lives!
