Regret is something that is often experienced by humans. This regret usually makes many people complain about the actions they have taken. As a result, many people are wondering if if he did something else, then the regret would not happen to him. In that regret, of course many people use the word “if”. Apparently, in Islamic law the word “if” is a forbidden word. Why is that?
Indeed Muslims are obliged to accept all the provisions and destinies that have been determined by Allah. Because, all these destinies have been determined by God and written in Lauh Mahfudz. As Allah says, “There is no disaster that befalls on the earth and (not also) on yourself but has been written in the book (Lohmahfuz) before We created it. Indeed, this is easy for Allah. “ (Surah Al Hadid: 22)
Therefore, Muslims should accept all the good and bad destinies of God with grace. If Muslims are afflicted by bad fate such as disaster, then Muslims should accept it with pleasure and remain prejudiced towards God. As said by the Prophet Muhammad, “Verily the magnitude of the reward according to the magnitude of the trials, and that Allah when loving a people, they will be given trials. He who is pleased with him is the pleasure of Allah. And whosoever refuses, for him is his wrath. “ (HR. At-Tirmidzi)
But in fact, most people just cannot afford to accept the reality of the bad fate that happened and say” if I don't do this, if I had done that before. “ In fact, the word” if “would be able to provoke demons to tempt humans. As the Prophet Muhammad had said in the following hadith.
“ Be diligent in matters that are of benefit to you and ask for help from Allah (in all matters), and do not ever be weak. If you are struck by something (failure), then do not say, ‘ If I did so, it would not be like this or not. ' But say, “this has been predestined by God and God does what he wants”. Because verily the words if would open (the door) the deeds of Satan. “ (Narrated by Muslim)
Not only triggers the opening of the door of Satan's deeds, the words “if” will also provoke the wrath of Allah. Even if God is angry with the phrase “if”, the person who likes to say the sentence will also be put into hellfire. As the Messenger of Allāh 900 had said, “Indeed someone pronounces a sentence that brings the wrath of Allah, but he considers it light, therefore he is cast into the fire of hell”. (Narrated by Bukhari)
Preferably, Muslims should not say the word “if” if they are experiencing a feeling of remorse. Moreover, Allah prefers His servants who are strong in the face of trials compared to His weak servants in the face of trials. As mentioned in the following hadith.
“Believers who are strong are better and are more favored by Allah than weak believers and all have goodness. Hurry up for what is of benefit to you, please help God in all matters and do not be weak. And if you get a disaster don't say “If I do that, I will do this or so” will be determined by God and if He wills it will be done. Because truly “if” opens the deeds of Satan. “ (HR. Muslim)
Therefore, Muslims should accept all good destiny and bad destiny set by Allah. If you are hit by a bad fate, then don't say the word “if”. The reason is, the presupposition sentence will open the devil's deeds, make God angry, and make the person who pronounces it enter into the fire of hell.
