Allah Listens!!!


Shaykh Khaled al-Wuhaybi narrates:

This is a story that has a lesson to be learned. it happened to me personally and was not conveyed to me (perhaps some of you have heard it from me before, but I repeat it as a reminder).
Here I am writing it to you as it occurred, so that perhaps a reader may benefit from it …
Or it may find someone desperate, and send hope to his heart …
Or find someone who was hasty, and stopped supplicating to his Lord!!.
On Wednesday 22/4/1423 of the Hijri Calendar
During the time of Dhuhr (Noon) prayers, in the Holy Mosque in Mecca. I was standing close to the chamber of the Muezzin (one who calls to prayer). when a brother signaled to me to fill a gap in the row next to him after the Iqamah has been called. So I went forward.
After we completed the prayer, I went to the back a little to sit with my legs crossed and be more comfortable while I do my Tasbeeh (Glorify and Praise Allah). I looked at that man beside me, and he appeared as if his body is worn out like the poor of the Sacred Mosque.
He had the appearance of stillness and humility, and had placed his hands on his thighs as he supplicated to his Lord with humbleness. I put my hand into my pocket reaching for the money which I had tied into groups of 1 Riyal, 5 Riyals, and 10 Riyals.
I took out 5 Riyals and placed it hidden in the palm of my hand and approached him, extending my arm to him to shake his hand. We shook hands and he felt the money in my palm. then pulled his hand quickly away without taking the money or even knowing how much was in my hand, telling me: May Allah reward you greatly.
I said: Won’t you accept it?
He did not respond, so I felt that he is being modest, which is why he did not accept it.
So I placed it back in my pocket. I stood back a little, and performed the Sunnah, and noticed the man turning to me again and again as if he is waiting for me to finish my prayers!!

Rewards of Dua:

When I completed my prayers, he came next to me and greeted me, and then asked: How much was it that you were going to give me?
I said:
I offered you and you refused to take it. so why would it matter if it was one riyal or a hundred?!
So he said:
 By Allah, how much was it that you were going to give me?
I said:
 Do not ask me by Allah. this matter between me and you has finished!
He said:
I was supplicating to my Lord about my dire need for five Riyals, so How much was it you were going to give me?
I said:
By Allah, who there is no God worthy of worship besides Him, the amount which I was offering you was 5 Riyals!
The man started weeping.

I asked him: Do you need more?
He said: no
Then he said:

 Subhan Allah, you were placing the money in my hand as I was still asking my Lord for it!!
I said:
Why then did you pull your hand away without taking it?
He said: I didn’t expect the reply to come so quick.
I said:
Subhan Allah, Indeed Allah is All-Hearing. Close to those who ask Him, Answering their call. He will not come down to you Himself to give you what you asked. but truly he will facilitate for you one of his slaves to fulfill for you what you need!
I offered him the five riyals again, and he took it. and refused to take anything extra.

Glory to Allah, the Great:

And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad) concerning Me. then (answer them), I am indeed near. I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me.  (Al Baqarah 2:186)
Allah listens :
[an-Naml 27:62]
Or, Who listens to the (soul) distressed when it calls on Him. and Who relieves its suffering. and makes you (mankind) inheritors of the earth? (Can there be another) god besides God? Little do they reflect.!
Allah listens :
[al-Mu’min 40:60]
“Call on Me; I will answer your (Prayer): but those who are too arrogant to serve Me will surely find themselves in Hell – in humiliation!.”
Allah listens :
[al-A`raf 7:55]
Call on your Lord humbly and secretly; surely He does not love those who exceed the limits.
Allah listens :
[al-A`raf 7:205]
And remember your Lord within yourself humbly and fearing and in a voice not loud in the morning and the evening and be not of the heedless ones.
[Nuh 71:28]
My Lord! Forgive me and my parents and him who enters my house believing. and believing men and believing women, and increase not the wrong-doers but in destruction.
Allah listens :

[al-Anbiya’ 21:83]

And Ayub, when he cried to his Lord, (saying). Harm has afflicted me, and Thou art the most Merciful of the merciful.
Allah listens :
[al-Anbiya’ 21:84]
Therefore We responded to him and took off what harm he had. and We gave him his family and the like of them with them. a mercy from Us and a reminder to the worshipers.
