Allah Always Knows Best!!
Dear بأمين الأفكار
Jumah morning at 2:15am, mom awoke me… she told me “please come to my room” as not to startle my granny… who is old and not well… ok at that min I wondered what had happened! Was it my dad, my uncle or my sisters, where that all ok????… Nevertheless I went to my parent’s room, when I got there my dad was not there!
Mom was on phone to quote she was saying “وَإِنَّآ إِلَيۡهِ رَٲجِعُونَ , would you like us to come there and sit with you?”…. By now my heart was racing, I was wondering what had happen…. mom than put the phone down … looked at me said “Your dads store in the nearby town is of fire”…. as we learnt as kids when receiving news like this no talking we should read “ وَإِنَّآ إِلَيۡهِ رَٲجِعُون” make wudhu and read 2 rakaahs salaah-tul-hajat…. at about 7:30am it seemed like the whole South Africa knew…. what was sad that some people said “shame how sad! What a thing to happen!!!”… ok people realllllllly!!!Alhamdulillah Allah has blessed our family…. but really can we ask what will happen now!!! Everything we have belongs to Allah, it is Allah right to take back what is His, how can we think “what will happen now!” Allah never ever puts a believer through any test that he cannot bare!! …. My Beloved and Noble Father asked “What was our response?”…. I told him, I said “There is no need to be sad, as Allah only test a believer on how much they can carry, Allah always looks at ones 1st reaction when receiving news of any kind, good or bad, hence we were pleased with whatever Allah places upon us.” My beloved Father said “it brings joy to me to know that my family think this way, Allah surely does what is best for a Believer.”
To me, while I was going through worry and anguish in the last few months of my marriage,, as I had no idea what my than husband, now my ex, was up to,,,, I always made dua, that Allah you give me the ability to carry any test you give me, to pass it pleasing you, yesبأمين الأفكارit was not easy at all, I use to cry for days on end, in my heart I knew that my Allah is always with me looking at me , seeing my reaction, and my reliance was always on my Allah, for Allah take cares of our affaires. From my personal experience there is good in everything AND ALLAH ALWAYS KNOWS BEST!
Focusing on that good is what I try my best to do, yes sometimes as human nature, I get frustrated…. but then the thought that Allah only does good comes to mind… so focusing on the good makes life a lot more pleasant,,, sure I get the days when all is not pleasant,,,, but then I remember, I have been given another day to worship and glorify my Allah, how pleasant is that :)
“Things mostly happen for the best. However hard it seems to-day, When some fond plan has gone astray or, what you’ve wished for most is lost an’ you sit counting’ up the cost
With eyes half-blind by tears of grief. While doubt is choking’ out belief, you’ll find when all is understood that what seemed bad was really good. Life can’t be counted in a day.
The present rain that will not stop next autumn means a bumper crop. We wonder why some things must be- Care’s purpose we can seldom see- an’ yet long afterwards we turn To view the past, an’ then we learn that what once filled our minds with doubt was good for us as it worked out. I’ve never know an hour of care But that I’ve later come to see
that it has brought some joy to me. Even the sorrows I have borne, Leaving’ me lonely an’ forlorn An’ hurt an’ bruised an’ sick at heart, An’ though I could not understand , that it was really better so. Things mostly happen for the best. So narrow is our vision here that we are blinded by a tear an’ stunned by every hurt an’ blow which comes to-day to strike us low. An’ yet some day we turn an’ find that what seemed cruel once was kind. Most things, I hold, are wisely planned if we could only understand.”
