Even more so…

“Is He (not best) Who responds to the distressed one when he calls upon Him and removes the evil and makes you inheritors of the earth, generations after generations? Is there any deity with Allaah?” [Surat un-Naml 27:62]

Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-’Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) comments:

Meaning: no one responds to the distressed one when he calls upon him except Allaah. So Allaah, ‘azza wa jal, responds to the supplication of the distressed person, even if he is a disbeliever. Even the disbeliever, if he is distressed and calls upon his Lord, He will respond to him. Allaah, ta’aala, said: {And when a wave covers them like shades (i.e. like clouds or the mountains of sea-water), they invoke Allah, making their invocations for Him only. But when He brings them safe to land, there are among them those that stop in between (belief and disbelief). But none denies Our Signs except every treacherous ingrate}. So the distressed person whose need compels him to calling upon Allaah – even if he is a disbeliever – Allaah will respond to his supplication. So what do you think about if he is a believer? Even more so.

Hence, no one responds to the distressed one except Allaah. As for those other than Allaah, ‘azza wa jal, then they may respond or not respond. It may be that you seek help from a person during a hardship yet he does not respond to you or save you. But Allaah, ‘azza wa jal – when you need Him and call upon Him – He will answer you.”

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
