"O Allaah! There is none to prevent what You give, and none to give what You prevent"
~ Saheeh al-Bukhaari #6615
Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) comments:
"So if Allaah gives, there is no one who can prevent what He gives. Ever. And if He prevents, then no one can give what He prevents. If Allaah prevents someone from something, no one will be able to give it to him. Ever. Donıt praise the people for what Allaah has given you and donıt blame them for what Allaah hasnıt given you, because the One who gives and the One who prevents is Allaah, jalla wa ıalaa. And that which is given or prevented through the slaves (of Allaah) only happens by the command of Allaah, subhaanahu wa taıaala. So if this is so, then it is obligatory for the hearts and wishes to be attached to Allaah, ıazza wa jal, and for the person to not be angry with the creation if what he wanted did not happen. Rather, he should know that (whatever happened) is from Allaah, jalla wa ıalaa; He is the One who prevented it from him. Furthermore, he doesnıt know what would be beneficial; the benefit may be in preventing him from that. Allaah knows and you do not know."
Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-ıUthaymeen (rahimahullaah) comments:
"So that which Allaah has decreed to reach you, no one can ever prevent it. And that which Allaah, ıazza wa jal, prevents, it is not possible for anyone to give it to you. No matter what means you take that would bring this thing that you want, indeed it cannot come to you as long as Allaah has prevented it. So if a person believes in these two sentences ı and believing in them is obligatory ı then indeed he will depend on Allaah with regard to his provision, repelling the harm and bringing the benefit. And he will always be relying on his Lord and believing that He, subhaanahu wa taıaala, will suffice him."
