Allah is Always First
Who has rights upon us? And who do we have rights upon? Imam Siraj Wahhaj speaks about the right you have to Allah (swt).
On the authority of Mu’aadh bin Jabal, a companion of the Prophet Muhammed who said :
“I was riding with the Prophet, sitting behind him, when he said to me, “O Mu’aadh! Do you know what is Allah’s right over His slaves, and what is the slave’s right over Allah?”.
I said, “Allah and His Messenger know Best.”
He said, “The Right of Allah over the slaves, is that they should worship Him alone and not associate anything with Him, while the right of the slaves over Allah is that He will not punish (on the Day of Judgment) whoever does not associate with Him.”
