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.

(click here to read the story)

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.

Fee amaanillah

Assalamu 'alaykum wr. wb.

Akhi, i have been going through a very rough time, and have been trying to train myself to accept the decree of Allah without hesitation. I was just complaining again to a friend, and I received your email.
May Allah (swt) reward you with the best of both worlds.

Your blog could not have come at a better time. I was trying to control something in my life that was what I thought was "going horribly wrong", having taking a step back I can now see that there must be some wisdom behind this, Ameen.

Sallam Alaikum,

The decree of Allah is one thing, but I would hope that individuals don't use that as an excuse to be satisfied with what they have in life -- in the sense that they attribute failures to "Allahs' will" -- instead as Muslims we should always strive to better our selves regardless of our situation. You failed an exam -- will you accept it as "Allahs' will" or will you study harder next time? Too often I've seen Muslims accept their fates without doing anything to better themselves...

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

Может, моё старание всё же не обращать на это внимания - результат фильмов о дружбе, любви, коие я посмотрела в детстве? Как-то из детства я вынесла то, что нужно ко всем относиться хорошо. А моё плохое всё время вырывается наружу!!! Может, это как внешность - передаётся по наследству и безрезультатно с этим бороться?|В общем ресницы и коротенькие и реденькие не загибаются. Сколько тушей не перепробовала - особо ничего не впечатляло. Может кто-нибудь что-нибудь подскажет из новинок (а может и из больше старых моделей) для таких проблемных ресниц.|Посетила нас такая беда. Брата мужа проститутка обвиняет в изнасиловании. Брат уже сидит с изоляторе. Наняли неплохого адвоката, но не можем взять в толк хорошо он работает или же нет=(
