We may have planned our life beautifully, but Allah determines it all.Things may not happen as we planned them, but watever happens, it is for the best.
Also, IT may not seem like it's THE BEST THING, in ALLAH's knowledge, IT IS!
Bcoz ALLAH knows everything we know not.. right?...............
we always think like WE KNOW what we want/ what we need, but the truth is whatever we want, or whoever we want may not be suitable for us to have, thats y we have Allah to decide whats best..getting too engrossed of what we're havin or planning, Allah "wakes us up" by giving us obstacles... one way of saying "hey this isnt good for u, im gonna give u sth/someone better,wake up". the way we "wake up" may be different. it cud be with tears, joy, also fear.. any kind.the obstacles maybe something real good, it cud be not so good..
Fate, destiny isnt what we control, we only can make effort, and lastly tawakkal. After that, it's up to ALLAH to decide.
Here's the story...
He worked on it for weeks on the top of a 24 storey building. He was consumed by and excited with his own painting that he unconsciously took a few step backward while admiring the 2 x 8 m painting. He didn't look back when he walked backward. He kept on walking backward until it was a step away from the edge of the 24 storey building. Just one more step backward and he could have fallen to his death.
A man saw what the painter was doing and was about to shout at him to warn him when he realized that his shout might surprise the painter and thus make him take that fatal one step backward and fall down. So the man took a brush and some paint and began to paint on the beautiful painting until it was damaged.
Upon realizing what happened to his painting, the painter got very angry and moved forward to hit the man. However, some other people who were also present at the vicinity held him and showed him his last position which almost made him fall.
MORAL: Sometimes we have planned our future with such beauty and dreamed of beautiful days we will spend with our loved one, but then ALLAH seems ( WAT WE SEE AS DESTROYING, actually, it isn’t) to destroy our beautiful painting when HE sees what danger lies ahead of us. Sometimes we are angry and annoyed by what ALLAH has done to us,(which is true) but one thing we have to keep in our mind is that our Creator is Most Wise and always keeps our best of interest in mind!
So when ALLAH in His Infinite Wisdom, tests us with a situation that we think is difficult or takes away something that in our mind was good for us, we need to remember that perhaps it may not be so. Perhaps if we had continued in our way, it might have been harmful for us and whatever ALLAH decreed for us is actually better for us, for He is All-Wise and All-Knowing.
