Life is a series of ikhtiar, from one ikhtiar to another ikhtiar. But the end of the ikhtiar shouldn’t always be a success. There is another way that connects to the successful that is the wish of Allah subhana wata'ala. The wish of Allah is "A way" that unseen [totally dark region in human life] .....nobody know it ……..
Allah says : “Nor does any one know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: Nor does any one know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things).” [Qur'an 31:34].
This world is not belongs to us; it is belongs to Allah subhana wata'ala. Allah the one who decide and the one who decree, nobody have right to ask what Allah do, the otherwise all of us will be asked [one day].
Allah says : “He cannot be questioned for His acts, but they will be questioned (for theirs)” [Qur'an 21:23].
As Moslem we should believe.... whatever Allah subhana wata'al has decreed to a Moslem is good.
Sometimes we can’t see the goodness behind the misery, the wisdom behind the calamity, but actually the key is we have to be husnuzan.. Because only keep good thinking to the will of Allah we will able to transfer everything become good, to transfer the calamity become a gift from Allah subhana wa ta'ala, the sadness become the happiness. Allah just as like His slave thinks about Him, if we keep husnuzan to Allah, nothing is impossible... Allah may keep the great happiness behind.... He is the Almighty... all the goodness belong to Him…. .”
Allah says: 'I am just as My slave thinks I am, (i.e. I am able to do for him what he thinks I can do for him)” [HR Bukhari]
When calamities befall upon us [beside have to be husnuzan to Allah subhana wata'ala] we also have to munasabah, we should recall to remember what sin that we did/done/doing. A Sin is an owe. Anytime we did sin that mean we have an owe that sometimes we have to pay them through “calamity” , “test” from Allah swt such as losing, unsuccessful, misery, etc.
A good person is not someone who never did a mistake but the one whom soon repentance while he/she did mistake sooner.
Allah say : "Therefore stand firm (in the straight Path) as thou art commanded,- thou and those who with thee turn (unto Allah.; and transgress not (from the Path): for He seeth well all that ye do.” [Qur'an 11:112]
So lets clean our heart, relieve our soul by crying in front of Allah subhana wata'ala because we never know the wisdom behind everything, we do not know that darkness region which blackness of our sins that will cause the calamity.…..
