Sins to be Erased

Translation: It is sad that we know saying subhanallahi wa bihamdihi (limitless is Allah in His glory and all praise is due to Him alone) a hundred times would cause our sins to be erased, and yet we don't repeat them.


Sayyid Qutb on Prophet Ayyub’s Prayer (Quran 21:83)


Prophet Ayyub here doesn't go beyond describing his condition: "I have been afflicted with great distress" (Quran 21:83), and describing his Lord by His attribute: "And you are the most merciful of those who are merciful." And then he doesn't pray for his situation to be changed, patiently enduring his hardship, and does not make any suggestions to His Lord, out of respectfulness and reverence for Him. Thus he is an example for the patient servant; his heart doesn't become distressed in hardship, and he doesn't become restless when he suffers the distresses that everyone suffers in all times and eras. Rather he is too shy to ask his Lord to remove his hardship, but leaves the matter entirely to Him, certain of His knowledge of the condition and His needlessness of being asked.

And at the moment when Ayyub faced his Lord with such faith and such respectful manners, that moment became the moment of Allah's answer and mercy, and the end of the trial.
