Indeed, Allaah the Mighty Lord has a lot of armies with which He does what He wishes, only Him knows them all. He the Mighty says in the Qurâ€™aan:
ÙˆÙŽÙ…ÙŽØ§ ÙŠÙŽØ¹Û¡Ù„ÙŽÙ…Ù Ø¬ÙÙ†ÙÙˆØ¯ÙŽ Ø±ÙŽØ¨Ù‘ÙÙƒÙŽ Ø¥ÙÙ„Ù‘ÙŽØ§ Ù‡ÙÙˆÙŽÛš
And none knows the soldiers of your Lord except Him.
Among those uncommon soldiers are the locusts!
On the authority of Abu Az-Zuhayr an-Numayree, the Messenger of Allaah â€“ salallaahu alahyi wa sallam â€“ said:
" Ù„Ø§ ØªÙ‚ØªÙ„ÙˆØ§ Ø§Ù„Ø¬Ø±Ø§Ø¯ ØŒ ÙØ¥Ù†Ù‡ Ø¬Ù†Ø¯ Ù…Ù† Ø¬Ù†ÙˆØ¯ Ø§Ù„Ù„Ù‡ Ø§Ù„Ø£Ø¹Ø¸Ù… "
â€˜Do not kill the locusts; they are from the armies of Allaah the Mightiest.â€™
Graded as as-Saheeh by al-Albaanee in as-Silsilah As-Saheehah: 5/554.
Whoever has seen the locusts in action will surely know that they operate based on orders.
May Allaah be glorified.
