Allah takes those forward who put themselves forward

Question

Is the following a Hadith: Whoever puts himself forward Allah Ta’ala will take him forward

 

Answer
I haven’t seen a Hadith like this.

However, this is indeed understood from other sacred texts. Allah treats us according to our intention and effort.

In Surah Maryam, Allah Ta’ala says:

‘And Allah increases the guidance of those who are [already] upon guidance.’

(Surah Maryam, Ayah: 76)

The famous Hadith about the three people who passed the gathering of Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) also supports this deduction.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 66)

Similarly the Hadith that states, that the one who goes to Allah walking, Allah comes to him quicker.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 7405)

All of the above imply further spiritual progress for those who make a start…

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
