Whatever is destined to be yours will find its way to you.
Have trust and strong belief in Qadr, both good and bad.
Allah is: Ar-Razzaq, Al-Aleem, and Al-Hakeem.
Have trust in Him, ask Him for everything in this world.
Even if it’s a pair of shoes, ask Him.
as He says in His Book,
وَقَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِي سَيَدْخُلُونَ جَهَنَّمَ دَاخِرِينَ
“And your Lord says: Call upon Me, I will answer you; surely those who are too proud for My service shall soon enter hell abased.” – Surah Ghafir, Verse 60
Ask Him for anything! And if he gives it to you then thank Him, and if He doesn’t give you then thank him even more. Because by Him not giving it to you, you know that He loves you and that’s why He knows it will give you pain and sorrow, or, you might not be able to handle it if you had it.
Take an apple or a banana or something that you know is imported in your country.
Just take a small bite and eat it.
Let’s analyze what we learn from above example:
An apple let’s say, is imported from Italy.
It was planted in Italy, grew there, taken care of, and finally the fruit came and it was transported by a vehicle, packed and transported by air towards your country, then taken by an intermediary, to the supplier, to a buyer (your dad/mom/or even yourself), and then finally comes the awaited time which it was destined for you to eat it. And then you took a bite. During its journey, NO ONE even dared to take a bite from it. Although it was in their hands the whole time.
Why are we telling such a story?
Let’s analyze the situation:
It was written in your destiny that you will eat that apple at a such and such time, and that was your Rizq (provision).
If such a small thing that we don’t even think about is in your rizq, then we say truly if Allah is able to make me eat that apple then He will give me what I have been asking for. He will answer my prayers.
He gave you an apple which you didn’t even ask for, so how about what you did ask for?
Just take a moment and think about it, before you lose hope in Allah.
