All is Well….!
You worked hard and gave your board exams. The grades let you down.
You burn your midnight oil and prepare a project. Your department head calls it lackluster.
Not always our plans succeed. Not always our work fetches recognition. Not always things happen as per our expectations.
Moreover, we come across, at times, shocking news and unpleasant instances: death of a close relative, you saw off your friend at the airport only to realize later that it was the ill-fated flight, sudden loss in business, killings and frequent bomb blasts, criminals roaming with impunity, starvation deaths, innocents languishing in jail, rape of a college girl, hapless farmers committing suicide, hooligans sitting in the nation’s parliament……the list is endless.
The unexpected and untoward happenings within and around us take our happiness away.
Our life appears gloomy. At times, you even feel angry and regret that you are not able to avert the happenings.
You then realize that you are weak and helpless.
You feel depressed. Pessimism overtakes.
Why such unexpected, unpleasant or untoward happenings happen?
Qur’an gives us a beautiful answer:
“Perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” Surah al Baqarah
As Allah does things in His own way, His ways seems to be strange to a human mind.
That’s the reason why at times man finds fault even with God!
The meat of the matter is: Allah knows and you know not!
Allah does what is right, and most importantly, He does what is Best in human interest.
Muslims thus are expected to resign and submit to His will. This is the only way one can channelize the negative thoughts into positive ones. Otherwise you know pessimism kills!
They say time heals. Actually, Allah’s wisdom is unfathomable.
The wisdom in Allah’s working takes shape and turns the seemingly unpleasant or untoward happening into a positive course.
So “All is well that ends well” may not always be true.
All is well even if it doesn’t end well or doesn’t seem to end well!

PS: I keep writing utilizing most of my time in reading and researching. Thanks to my regular readers who read and at times do take time to comment as well. But then I feel that in spite of so much hard work, and even though this blog has 1100+ subscribers, I find, through blog statistics, that the posts do not get enough clicks. Either e-mail subscribers are very busy to check out on new posts or they don’t really like my writings, wallaahu ‘alam, but then I keep writing under the principle discussed in this post: Carry on writing, doing your best, for God has plans even for you 🙂
Share or Not. Choice is Yours. If you share, Allah will reward you. That makes a huge difference.
