“Allah guides those whom He wills”

Subhan’Allah .. Someone mailed me this video today and ,Allahu Akbar, its absolutely amazing how Allah(SWT) guides the heart of a man to Him; all that is required is to lift your hands up in prayer and with a sincere heart ask for His help!

In the Sahih, Ibn Al-Musaiyab has reported from his father:

When death approached Abu Talib, Allah’s Messenger (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) came to him and found `Abdullah bin Abi Umaiyah and Abu Jahl in his company. The Prophet said, “O uncle,

say: ‘There is no true god except Allah’, a word which will enable me to plead for you with Him.” The two of them said, “Would you forsake the religion of (your father) ‘Abdul­ Muttalib?” The Prophet repeated (the request) and the two of them also repeated (their question). The final word of Abu Talib was about being on the religion of’ Abdul-Muttalib and he refused to say: La ilaha ilIa-Allah. The Prophet (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said, “But I shall continue to pray for your forgiveness as long as I am not prohibited to do so.” It was then that Allah the Almighty revealed the verse: “It is not (proper) for the Prophet and those who believe, to ask Allah’s forgiveness for the Mushrikin even though they be of kin.”

(9:113)

Allah also revealed concerning Abu Talib: “Verily, you (O Muhammad) guide not whom you like, but Allah guides whom He wills. And He knows best those who are the guided ones.” (28:56)
