The Contract between Allah and The Believers
In a time of constant buying and selling, this ayah reminds us of the greatest contract we can ever be involved in:
إِنَّ اللَّهَ اشْتَرَىٰ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَنفُسَهُمْ وَأَمْوَالَهُم بِأَنَّ لَهُمُ الْجَنَّةَ
Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties for (the price) that theirs shall be the Paradise. (9:111)
The scholars say, “How outstanding is this contract! The buyer is the Rabb of Honor and Might, the purchase is the Soul, the merchandise is Jannah, the written contract is in the Highest Heaven, and the mediator is the Muhammad alayhi salaatu wa salaam.”
Imam Hasan Al Basri states, “Look at the Generosity of Allah – souls that He has created and wealth that He has provided, then He granted it for them and He purchased it from them with this priceless contract–and indeed, it is a fruitful transaction.”
