The prisoner in the prison clings to Him, and so does the traveller facing dangers in the sea and the poor in his poverty. To Him clutchs the orphan in his bereavement, the sick in his sickness and the barren in his sterility. Allah answers all of them, grants them their supplication, and lifts their misfortunes.
He answers those facing calamities. &"Is He (not best) who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him, and removes evil&" (An-Naml: 62).
