Hadith Explanation

Shoe-lace or Salt, Ask Allah

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Man should call upon Allah alone to provide for all his needs, so much so that even if a shoe-lace is broken, he should pray to Allah to provide a shoe-lace, and if he needs salt, he should beseech Allah to send it to him.” [Tirmidhi]

Prayer is the essence of worship and worship should be rendered to Allah alone. Do not call upon anyone except Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to fulfill your needs.

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) is rich while man is poor and He (subhana wa ta’ala) is bountiful and generous while man is stingy. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) likes us to ask Him for things, for He loves to give us from the treasures with Him; while people dislike being asked, because they hate to part with what is with them. So ask Allah for any and every thing and refrain from asking human beings. This will endear you to Him and keep you honourable in the eyes of men.
