Yup. But then, we must also plan. And do our best to achieve what we plan. But side by side with such commitment and passion is our humble acceptance – that however good we strategise and implement our project, it is His Plan that is ultimately fulfilled. Which may be the same, or slightly different or totally the opposite of what we had planned and worked for.
This balancing of apparent contradictions is but one of the many aspects in our life where we gingerly tread the bridge of the Siratul Mustaqim (the Straight Path) whose width is akin to the width of a human hair split 7 times thinner.
But let’s not worry too much. After all, I bet you are just like me in that…
I love surprises
And God loves to give me surprises
And He will give me surprises
Whether I like it or not.
So yeah, I love surprises.
wa min Allah at-taufiq
Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
