Say Insha-Allah

By Muhammad Rafique Etesami

It is said that once some polytheists of Makkah asked the Holy Prophet (PBUH) about the incident of “Ashab-e-Kahaf” (Catacomb Camrades). The Holy Prophet (PBUH) promised that he would tell them about it the next day but he forgot to say “InshaAllah”. Actually he hoped that Gabriel (A.S) would come and tell him about the incident. But, , unexpectedly , Gabriel (A.S) did not come till the fifteen days. Then the polytheists started to say as a joke that Allah had let off the prophet Muhammad (PBHH).
Hearing that, the Prophet  (PBUH) felt deep grief over that .After passing some days these verses were revealed,” And say not of anything: Lo! I shall do that tomorrow, except if Allah. And remember thy Lord then thou forgetteth, and say: it may be that my Lord guideth me unto a nearer way of truth than this.”(The Cave: 24)
Allah Almighty Has warned the Holy Prophet (PBUH) through these verses that whenever he wants to do anything, he must say “InshaAllah”, otherwise the work would not be done.
The reason is that Allah’s command is fully enforced into all the universe. No one can move or do anything without His will of command. He is absolute Ruler and the Omnipotent and the Omniscient Master of the universe. Says in the holy Quran,”but His command, when He intendeth a thing, is only that He saith unto it: Be and it is. Therefore glory be to Him in whose hand is the dominion over all things. Unto Him ye will be brought back”.
If Allah wants to do something, then no worldly power can do it, So, he who says Insha-Allah, directly makes concern to Allah Almighty. He confesses his helplessness and powerlessness and asks for Help and ” Taufeeq,”
So, if we want that our desires and objects set right, we must say “InshaAllah. May Give us “Taufeeq” to do so Ameen.

The Right of Divorce

Some people see the Islamic law of divorce from a different point or view. They are of the opinion that the wife should also divorce her husband according to the need of time as her husband can divorce her.

The question arises: who should actually enjoy the right of divorce? Both wife or husband? In the furst state of affairs, if both the spouses enjoy the right of divorce, then the ratio of divorce will be increase. It will play havoc with the family and its administration. For example, we see in the western family system, where divorce is excessively given, marriage becomes a joke. When ever one of the spouses wants, he/she divorce the second one. Often it so happens that when the husband returns home from his work, he finds his wife missing and a notice of divorce on behalf of his wife on the table. To avoid such irregularities and to make the family system safe and sound, Islam has awarded the right of divorce only to the husband.

Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran,” If ye divorce them before ye have touched them and ye have appointed unto them a portion, then (pay the) half of that which ye agreeth to forgo it in whose hand is the marriage-tie. To forgo is nearer to piety. And forget not kindness among youselves. Allah is seer of what ye do.”(The Cow:237)

It is a matter of fact that the woman is more emotional and sentimental than the man. If she is awarded the right of divorce, she separate herself from her husband over a trifle. So, for the betterment of the family system it is necessary that only the husband should enjoy the right of divorce.
