By Sh Aaidh Al-Qarni

Do not be sad, for that which has been preordained has already been decided upon and will take place though you may not like it. The pens have dried, the scrolls have been rolled up, and every affair is firmly established. Therefore your sadness will not change your reality in the least.

When you read the following verse, does not your heart feel peaceful, are not your worries driven away, and does not happiness permeate your whole being?

"Say: 'O' My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by committing evil deeds and sins}! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Qur 'an 39: 53)

Allah addressed us with, 'O' My Servants,' to tame our hearts and souls. He specifically mentioned those who transgress, since they are more disposed than others to perpetrate evil deeds on a continual basis. How much greater then will be the Mercy of Allah for others!

Thus, He forbade from despairing and from losing hope of attaining forgiveness. And, He informed us that He forgives all sins of the one who repents, whether they are big or sma11, important or unimportant.

Everything occurs according to pre-ordainment and according to what has been decreed. Such is the belief of Muslims, the followers of Muhammad (Blessings and Peace be upon him). And nothing happens in the Universe except through Allah's Knowledge, Permission, and Divine Plan.

"No calamity befalls on the earth or in yourselves but is inscribed in the Book of Decrees - (Al-Lauh al-Mahfuz), before We bring it into existence. Verily, that is easy for Allah." (Qur'an 57: 22) “Verily, We have created all things with Qadar [Divine Pre-ordainments of all things before their creation, as written in the Book of Decrees (Al-Lauh al-Mahfuz)." (Qur'an 54: 49)

Question: What is the status of the Four Sunnah before Jumuah?

Answer: The Four Rakaats that are to be performed before the Jumuah Salaah are categorised as Sunnatul Muakkadah (i.e. such an act that the Messenger Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam carried out regularly and emphatically encouraged others to do.)

It was the habit of Sayyidina Abdullah ibn Masood RA to perform Four Rakaats before Jumuah. ( Abdurrazaq 247/3; ibn Abi Shaybah 143/3)

And Allah Knows Best
