Al Jabbar – (The Compeller, Restorer)


Last year, I tried to read the manuscript for An Affluent Heart. As I read the very first du’a, my first thought was ‘this is a happy du’a made by a person who is in a happy place in their marriage or, a person who is still hopeful…’ Right then, I didn’t feel like I belonged in either category.

I had lost hope a long time ago and stopped making du’a. I still don’t and do not want to… I felt only Allah understood the injustice I was feeling… So, I shut the book thinking to myself, ‘what du’a covers me? Which du’a suffices?”

Fast forward to today, and I can truthfully say that An Affluent heart has brought me to safe shores. Although, I still cannot bring myself to make du’a for my spouse, I am now able to visualise what I want in my marriage & I am waiting to be ‘rescued’ by Al Jabbar. I am absolutely in love with that name and have found it to be my very own du’a warrior, written just for me.

So, right now, I know that I will definitely soon see light at the end of the tunnel, despite the pain of being snowed in, and the injustice done to me. I am still at a place I don’t want to be, but know I am safe emotionally, and that it’s only a matter of time before I see and enjoy the fruits of my long wait, pain and frustrations.

I believe that this is definitely HOPE that I feel. I now understand and firmly believe that Al-Jabbar will complete this work for me. In the wake of my hopeful feeling, I have designed my dream marriage and I await my Rabb to complete and deliver it to me In sha Allah

Alhamdulillah alaa kulli haal ♥️
