Complains about Allah to people


“It is truly an ignorant person who complains about Allah to people.

Such a person has displayed the deepest depths of ignorance concerning both Allah and people:

– if he truly knew Allah, he would never complain about Him;
– if he truly understood people, he would never complain to them.

One of the pious predecessors saw a person complaining to another about his desperate state of affairs and commented, ‘What have you achieved besides complaining to someone who will not show you mercy, leaving the One who will?’

When you complain to the son of Adam

You have left the Merciful for one who is not.

Someone who truly knows Allah will only ever complain to Him.

Amongst this category of people, the best is the person who complains to Allah, not about other people, but about himself (and his spiritual condition).

This person has grasped the real reason behind his difficulties and is looking to His words,

“Any disaster that strikes you is through what your hands have earned,” (Q42:30)

“Any bad things that happens to you come from yourself,”(Qur’an, 4:79)

“Why is it that when a calamity happens to you, when you have already inflicted twice as much, you say, ‘How could this possibly happen?’ Say, ‘It has come from your own selves.’” (Qur’an, 3:165)

Therefore, there are three levels of people: the meanest is the person who complains about Allah to people, the most sublime is the person who complains about himself to Allah, and middlemost is the person who complains about other people to Allah.”

-Ibn al-Qayyim, (al-Fawāʾid, pg. 126)

Pray your Salah and be good to others too, When you remember Allah, He remembers you. Do you know when you hear or recite the Qur'an, Allah is telling you that He is the One.
