Accepting Allah's decree
Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,Assalamoalaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarkaatuh
Having read Brother Ali's entry about the lost flash drive, I couldn't help but recollect this fantastic story which reminds us to always accept our situations, even when we can't see the good in what Allah has willed for us.

So, when things aren't quite going as we hope, let's try to be a little imaginative and think how Allah may have planned our situation to end in a way better than we we expect.
Perhaps there's an episode topic which we've not yet thought of - one that will make a difference to hundreds of lives, and this is Allah's way of challenging our minds to find that topic.
Allahu Alam (Allah knows best)
Accepting what Allah has willed for us and being happy with it will make our lives so much more peaceful, stress-free and pleasant.
In knowing that Allah is the Controller of all our affairs, we will relieve ourselves of all the anguish we take on when believing that we are in fact masters and controllers of our lives.
The Companions of the Prophet (may Allah be pleased with them) would often refer to Allah as 'the One in whose hand their souls lay'.
If we take a moment to imagine this as best we can, we'll be overcome with simultaneous feelings of both His loving protection and of being at His mercy. This is the equilibrium we should aim to maintain throughout our day. The balance between fear and hope. The knowledge of both His love and His power.
Ok, so I've kinda gone off on a tangent - not the usual style of the ummahfilms blog, but I hope that insha Allah, this little reminder will also be of benefit to all the readers.
Al Hamdu lillahi Rabbil 'Aalameen - All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds
