The Contract between Allah and The Believers

May 23, 2009


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.”

All that is missing is your signature…Are you ready to sign?

    Maashaa Allah! Beautiful and succinct post. Where did you get the quote from Imam Hasan Bisri (raheemahullah) might I ask? That too was insightful. Jazakum Allahu khayr!
