Immerse Yourself in Sibghatullah
Allah ta’ala says at the end of the first juz,
صِبْغَةَ اللَّهِ ۖ وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ مِنَ اللَّهِ صِبْغَةً ۖ وَنَحْنُ لَهُ عَابِدُونَ
The “sibghah” of Allah, and who can be better than Allah in “sibghah”? And we are His worshippers. (2:138 )
Sibgha means coloring or dye, that is not the original state of something. It is the color that has been put on.
It can be of two types:
- Tangible: which is to take the color of something
- Intangible: which is to take the influence of something.
The first part of the ayah “sibghatullah” means khuthuu sibghatullah, take the sibgha of Allah.
What is the ‘color’ of Allah that is being referred too?
The color is referring to our deen, Islam. This refers to the effect of Islam that you can see on a person.
1- Through their identity and the way they submit.
2- Through their characteristics: every part of our lives are influenced by this deen.
How much of this color do we have?
Immerse yourself completely in Islam in all ways: externally and internally. Color yourself with Islam.
