A promise is a declaration or an assurance that one will do something or that a particular thing will happen. Allah Almighty is the creator of this world. Allah has revealed a Holy Book Quran for all mankind. Quran is the book of guidance for all mankind. Allah (SWT) spoke of His creation through Quran. Quran has its unique style of narration or we can say the style of Allah’s narration. In Quran, Allah has committed promises to His believers and we all know Allah does not break His promises. You can read about all these Allah promises in Quran with translation and transliteration on your smartphone, you can download it from the links provided below:
When we read Quran with understanding then we will be able to understand what Allah (SWT) committed to us His believers. In our daily life routine, we like those people who fulfill their promises and we regard them as most respectable people. Allah promises His believers of many good things as a result of their faith and righteousness. Anyone who has a complete faith in the religion of Islam knows that Allah`s guarantee never fails: if one cannot get the said return in this world, it would be given in the life hereafter.
Allah (SWT) did promises to His believers in Quran and surely He will fulfill these promises because He does not break His commitments. If we want to get blessings from Almighty Allah then we should also do righteous deeds. Some of the promises of Allah are mentioned below:
1. A Good Life:
Believers face many difficulties in their life we can’t think they have a very good life. But the believers who are possibly going through suffering, Allah is giving them a feeling in their heart that could not be bought with the wealth of this worldly life. Due to this satisfaction believers have more faith in their Creator Allah Almighty. Allah says in Quran
“Whoever works righteousness, man or woman, and has Faith, verily, to him will We give a new Life, a life that is good and pure and We will bestow on such their reward according to the best of their actions.” (Quran 16:97)
Because of the difficulty, the believers go through and the patience they show Allah gives them something in their hearts that cannot be described with words.
Always try to do righteous deeds for pleasing Allah (SWT). As Allah (SWT) promised to His believers about forgiveness. He also promised of great reward and we can’t even imagine how great this reward would be.
“To those who believe and do deeds of righteousness has Allah promised forgiveness and a great reward.” (Quran, 5:9)
So we all should do good deeds for the sake of Allah’s forgiveness.
Allah Almighty says in Quran:
“So remember me, I will remember you.” (Quran 2:152).
Allah promises his believers that if they will remember Him, He will also remember them. Allah Almighty surely fulfills His commitments.
Allah promises to His believers that He will protect them from any kind of difficulty or problem. We all should know no one is greater saver than Him. Allah says in Quran:
“Verily Allah will defend (from ill) those who believe, verily, Allah loves not any that is a traitor to faith or shows ingratitude.” (Quran 22:38)
Allah Almighty will protect believers.
Allah (SWT) says in Quran to His believers
“Those who believe, and work righteousness, their Lord will guide them because of their faith, beneath them will flow rivers in gardens of bliss.” (Quran, 10:9)
Every day we ask Allah (SWT) for guidance in our salah. We should pray our salah regularly on time and should do good deeds. If Allah (SWT) didn’t accept dua of ours, He is guiding us to something better or delaying it for a later date to strengthen us in faith. We should always believe in Almighty Allah at every cost.
Allah Almighty is very generous, kindhearted and benevolent. He will show mercy to His believers. No matter you are in what situation whether its shortage of money, illness, business crises and other situation related to it, Allah (SWT) has a solution to all your problems. Allah says in Quran
“If you are grateful, I will surely increase you.” (Quran, Surah Ibrahim: verse 7)
7. Protection from Shaitaan:
Shaitaan is very strong and experienced more than we know; we can’t defeat him without getting help from Almighty Allah. Allah says in Quran
“No authority has he (i.e. Shaitaan) over those who believe and put their trust in their Lord.” (Quran, 16:99)
Allah has given us many weapons to defeat the Shaitaan. A believer should use these weapons that Allah has given him. For example, Ayat-ul-Kursi which is recited before going to sleep and on other occasions. Put your trust fully in Allah (SWT) and know with certainty that Allah (SWT) has something better planned for you.
The ultimate promise of Allah (SWT) to His believers is Jannah. All our deeds and actions in this world should bring us closer to Allah (SWT) and earn Jannah. If our deeds and actions are not bringing us closer to Allah (SWT) then we need to re-evaluate our lives, purify our intentions, and seek Allah’s forgiveness and His mercy. Allah says in Quran
“Give glad tidings to those who believe and work righteousness, that their portion is Gardens, beneath which rivers flow. Every time they are fed with fruits therein, they say: “Why, this is what we were fed with before,” for they are given things in similitude; and they have therein companions pure (and holy), and they abide therein (forever).”(Quran, 2:25)
The promise of Paradise is sufficient and is, in fact, more than what we deserve. However one has to earn this, as the product of Allah, i.e. Paradise is not cheap.
These are some of the many promises of Allah Almighty to His believers which we can benefit from by following our faith and religious responsibilities apologetically. Indeed, His assurance is the most rightful of all the affirmation.
