Benefit: They Say: "We Hear and We Obey"
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
The only saying of the faithful believers, when they are called to Allāh (His Words, the Qur ʾān) and His Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam), to judge between them, is that they say: “We hear and we obey” [Sūrah al-Nūr: 24:51]. Shaykh ʿAbd al-Raḥmān al-Saʿdī (raḥimahullāh) comments: (The only saying of the faithful believers) Meaning: indeed, those whose deeds attest to their belief when called to Allāh and His Messenger to judge between them, no matter whether the judgment agrees with their desires or not. (Is that they say: “We hear and we obey”) Meaning: We hear the judgment of Allāh and His Messenger and we respond to the one who called us to Him, and we obey with a complete obedience that is free from any distress or hesitation.1
