Reflection No. 64 on Q 3:126 – Help is From Allah
وَ مَا النَّصْرُ اِلاَّ مِنْ عِنْدِ اللَّهِ الْعَزِيْزِ الْحَكِيْمِ
There is no help except from Allah and Allah is the Mighty, the Wise.
(Sura Aale Imran, verse 126)
Thoughts on the Verse
Whatever help the human being gets to achieve success originates only from Allah. He is the source of all help. People, things, even angels are just means used to help, but they have no independent ability to help unless God wills it so. If the Jinns and the human beings and the angels gather together to do something , they cannot do so if Allah does not will it.
The names of Allah at the end of the verse; the Mighty, the Wise, point to the fact that He knows the ways to success and has the power to grant the ability to achieve it. He does it according to His wisdom, and grants when it is the best time to do so. Once you understand and accept that, it becomes so effortless to trust in Him fully, bringing peace to the heart and mind.
Recite this verse often to remind yourself that all the help you need for various aspects of your life, can only come from Allah. Strengthen yourself by connecting yourself to the power of Allah, and see how success comes to you.
