And whoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whosoever puts his trust in Allâh, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allâh will accomplish his purpose. Indeed Allâh has set a measure for all things.
[Surah Al-Talq, Verse 2-3]
A reconnecting Muslim, I am not at all pious or try to act in this matter. I believe in what I believe.
I have read friends’ statuses on Facebook about how God’s provisions to his followers. I am a firm believer that God will not bestow you with hardship/pain that he knows you can’t handle. And I do believe that if he does not bless you with something you desire, he has other much better plans stored for you waiting for the perfect time which/where(source) you can never imagine.
For a couple who has been trying to conceive, For others who has limited wealth, For those who are looking for happiness, For those who yearns for what you desire, don’t despair. Allah might have blessed you all differently; some with a roof over your head, the love of your family and especially your spouses, others with wealth. Look around at what you have. Be grateful and be patient. Insya Allah one day he will fulfil what you need.
Sometimes we have to look beyond what we don’t have and focus on what we do have. That way we always be grateful for we are living another day today, able to be with our loved ones. Just my two cents worth.
This life is not about how well you planned it nor about how hard you try to make it work as planned. Some may choose to argue otherwise.
For me no matter how much i have planned out my life to be, no matter how hard i tried to make it as close to it as possible. Nothing is constant. He gives and take away anything in a blink of an eye. He puts you down and brought you back up from your sorrows. He pulls you down and have the hard face of reality smack into you when you’re up on cloud nine for too long.
There you go. Nothing is constant.
Constant is when you pick yourself up after you fall. Constant is forgiving. Constant is having faith in him. Constant is him.
He challenges you to be who you have not become. He made you to be who you are and guide you to be amazing. He loves you enough to let you know that each challenge he put you through, you Will succeed in the matter of time. He will not bestow pain that you couldnt bear. He loves you.
But we are all humans. Neither you and i are perfect. Sometimes we have doubts. Sometimes we give up. Sometimes we hate. Sometimes we let go…
At one point or another in this life, you’ll realised that Change is desirable and needed. Not wanted.
Change is not just or limited to trying to be pious or be an “Ustazah or Ustaz” to anyone. Change to become a better person. Change is solely upon yourself, not for your family, friends, lovers, husbands or strangers. Change is for NOONE but YOURSELF.
Forget about the judgement of others, girlfriends, friends or even family. So let them criticise. The only Judgement that matters are His, and with His all Almighty and great Mercies to grant us forgiveness. Do everything with good intentions.
I must say that attending the Women’s Conference organised by the HIYC Sisters organisation has been so beneficial. It shed some light and feeds the soul with the positivity, the strength and made us remember the gift that Allah created for us Women. Change can be a big tasks but all you need is that one step, even if it’s as tiny as baby steps. A step to explore a whole new world that has been carved for you.
“In other words, you will realise that the person who injured you only did so based on Allah’s preordainment and decree. People are only means, but the One Who decrees and decides is Allah, so surrender your will to Him.”
