Allah says:

"There is not a single thing except that its depositories and treasures are with Us." [Al-Qur'an 15:21]

This verse comprises a great treasure from the treasures of the Qur'an, this being that nothing is sought except from the One Who possesses its depositories and treasures, the One in Whose Hands lie the keys to these treasures. Seeking things from anyone else is seeking something from one who does not possess them or possess any authority over them.

The saying of Allah:

"And that to your Lord is the final goal." [Al-Qur'an 53:42]

Comprises an immense treasure, this being that every desired objective that is not desired for His sake and is not connected in any form or fashion to Him then it is temporary and soon to disappear for its final goal is not with Him. The final goal lies only with the One to Whom all matters find their conclusion, terminating at His creation, Will, Wisdom and Knowledge. Therefore He is the source of every desired matter.

Everything that is loved - if it is not loved for His Sake then this love is nothing but distress and punishment. Every action that is not performed for His Sake then it is wasted and severed. Every heart that does not reach Him is wretched, veiled from achieving its success and happiness.

Therefore Allah has gathered everything that could be desired from Him in His saying:

"There is not a single thing except that its depositories and treasures are with Us." [Al-Qur'an 15:21]

And He has gathered everything that is done for His Sake in His saying:

"And that to your Lord is the final goal." [Al-Qur'an 53:42]

Therefore there is nothing beyond Allah that deserves to be sought and nothing finds its conclusion with other than Him.

Be Mindful O Mankind!

To maintain nice relations with the people is half of intelligence, nice questioning is half of knowledge, and nice domestic arrangements is half of the management of livelihood.
