Assalamu'alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh..
I make dua that what i'm going to share this time will benefit us all-especially myself-a normal human being who needs to be reminded of Allah at all times. Allah musta'an.
It has been a while that i haven't shared my 'journey to Islam' (just simply love to call it as such!) with everyone who has been reading my blogposts (If i do have any. LOL) So many things happened lately, just so many of them! I just couldn't list them down! From good to bad, pleasant to unpleasant things! And i learned great lessons from them and they made me realize one thing:
EVERYTHING THAT BEFALLS UPON YOU IS ACTUALLY GOOD FOR YOU EVEN IF IT DISPLEASES YOU-IF YOU HAVE BEEN CONSULTING AND ASKING ALLAH TO HELP AND ASSIST YOU IN ALL OF YOUR AFFAIRS
It is so true when Allah says in HIS 'love letters' :
"..But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and that you love a thing which is bad for you, But ALLAH KNOWS, and YOU KNOW NOT.." (Al-Baqarah:216)
We might like something so much, so immensely to the extend that nothing else matters to us other than getting what we want or desire! But my dear brothers and sisters, bear in mind that nothing is to be given to us by Allah if it is NOT WRITTEN for us in Allah's qadr. It is impossible for us to get it by any means..
Some people might say, "Then that will be unfair to me if i could not get what i want! I've made du'a to Allah to give it to me so why wouldn't HE? HE supposedly is to grant any wishes.."
Or you might say, "I made du'a to Allah for this but why isn't HE giving me what i want? Infact, i got something else, not as what i expected!"
Then you'll start wondering, "Why is Allah doing this to me?.."
SubhanAllah.. Far removed is Allah from any imperfections..
If we are truly a believer, how could we think as such to Allah 'azza wa jal?
If Allah is so dear to us, infact the dearest, how could we accuse Allah being unfair to us?
My dear bothers and sisters..
Never to ask Allah what you want but ask Allah to give you what is the best for you as what you want unnecessarily the best for you..
Know this: All prayers, du'aat will be answered. Infact, may have been answered! It's just us who don't see..
It could be something you want. But don't be sad if you haven't got it. Allah wants to give it to you at the right time.
Could also be something you have never expected. Or something that you hate. So have hopes only on Allah so that you won't feel regret or disappointed for hoping something which is not for you..
Allah.. All these reminders really hit me. May Allah give us chance to improve ourselves..
"Oo Allah, I am Your slave and the son of Your male slave.
My forehead is in Your Hand (i.e. You have control over me).
Your judgement upon me is assured
and Your decree concerning me is just.
I ask You by every name that You have named yourself with,
revealed in Your Book,
taught by any one of Your creation
or kept unto Yourself in the knowledge of the unseen taht is with You,
to make the Quran the spring of my heart,
and the light in my chest,
the banisher of my sadness
and the reliever of my distress.."
(Narrated by Ahmad, Al-albani graded it authentic)
A beautiful video specially for my beloved brothers and sisters..
May Allah bless you
