On The Root Cause of Tribulations

Advice from Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah preserve him and benefit us by him)

Allah says:

Let those who disobey his order beware lest tribulation befall them or a painful punishment be inflicted upon them.1

I swear by Allah that every tribulation that befalls any part of the Ummah in any place and at any time or any punishment that is inflicted is the result of disobedience to the Beloved ﷺ. Likewise the only cause of receiving the mercy of Allah and experiencing bliss in this life is following him, loving him and sacrificing everything in support of him.
