One Word with Adam Jamal – Museebah
Museeba – Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 156 (Quran 2:156)
Who, when disaster strikes them, say, “Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return.”
The word museebah is usually translated as calamity. Arabs used it to describe the moment when an arrow hits its mark. So when Allah uses the word museebah here, He is also teaching us that when calamity hits us we must realise that it’s from Allah who does everything for a purpose, even though it may not be apparent to us at the moment.
