Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “Protect the boundaries of Allah Ta‘ala (by fulfilling His commands and refraining from what He has forbidden), you will find Him in front of you (at your assistance). Become acquainted with Allah Ta‘ala (i.e. become close to Him and develop a contact with Him by means of His obedience and constant remembrance) in ease, He will recognize you in times of difficulties.” (Musnad Ahmad #2803)
Whenever a problem arises, a person always tries to find a contact in “high places” to help him out of that difficulty. Allah Ta‘ala, the Most High, is thee contact and He alone can remove all difficulties. The biggest problem is that we have not developed our contact with Him, nor have we learnt to ask from Him. To develop this contact one will have to join the company of the pious, learned ones and learn the obedience and love of Allah Ta‘ala from them.
