On Donald Trump’s Presidency: Khayr, insya Allah

Say: “O Allah! Possessor of the kingdom,
You give the kingdom to whom You will,
and You take the kingdom from whom You will,
and You endue with honour whom You will,
and You humiliate whom You will.
In Your Hand is the good.
Verily, You are Able to do all things.

[Ali Imran 3:26]

In the midst of all the confusion, this is a beautiful ayah for us to internalize.
Allah s.w.t. is the Sole Owner of the Kingship.
The fact that Allah has bestowed some power to this person,
took it away from another,
dignify someone,
and humiliate another…
All of this is khayr.

Even after much consideration of the pros and cons, even after so many efforts that everyone tried to put in place,
Allah s.w.t. has willed for this to happen.
And we as Muslims believe:
بِيَدِكَ ٱلۡخَيۡرُ‌
“In Your Hand is the good.”
All of this is khayr.
So restore your belief in the Qadr and Wisdom of Allah s.w.t.
