who does he think he is?

Someone who is better than Allah ?

repost from last month:

According to Abu Dharr (ra), the Prophet  said, reporting the words of Allah :

O My servants, I have forbidden injustice/oppression to Myself and I have made it forbidden amongst you. So be not unjust to one another.

O My servants, all of you go astray except the one whom I guide.
Ask guidance of Me, and I shall guide you.

O My servants, all of you go hungry except the one whom I feed.  Ask Me for food, and I shall feed you.

O My servants, all of you go naked except the one whom I clothe.  Ask Me for clothing, and I shall clothe you.

O My servants, you transgress by day and night, but I forgive all misdeeds. Ask forgiveness of Me, and I shall forgive you.

O My servants, harming Me is beyond you, so you cannot harm Me; and benefiting Me is beyond you, so you cannot benefit Me.

O My servants, if all of you – first and last, man and jinn – were like the one among you with the most devout heart, that would add nothing to My kingdom.

O My servants, if all of you – first and last, man and jinn – were like the one among you with the most ungodly heart, that would take nothing away from My kingdom.

O My servants, if all of you – first and last, man and jinn – were to stand on the same level and address Me with your requests, and if I were to give each one what he had requested, that would not
diminish what is with Me, any more than a needle diminishes the sea when it enters it.

O My servants, it is solely your deeds that I take account of, and it is by virtue of them that I will repay you. So let him who finds good, praise God, and let him who finds other than that, hold none but
himself to blame.

Recorded in ibn ‘Arabi’s Mishkat al-Anwar and in the Sahih Hadith collection of Muslim
