An effort in f a c i l i t a t i o n

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!

Sal-lal-laahu-ala-Muhammad, Sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam.

Baarakallaahu Feekum.

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 🙂

  6. Assalamu alykum
    I undrestand your concern. The things you find and you want to share with us are so important that you want the whole world to read about them. I feel that way too. But… Don’t check your statistics if you feel hurt by the few clicks. Pray that the one click you see changed someone’s life or attitude in a way that from now all his good deeds will generate rewards for you as well. If you only do this for Allah – then the clicks don’t matter.
    Myself, I only pay attention to the stats for 2 reasons:
    * Which are the subjects that people are interested? Then I can look for even better material or related subjects
    * Do I remember the article they clicked on? If not, I read it again as a reminder to myself – and in the process I discover a typo that I can correct or a lay-out that needs improvement.
    May Allah encourage you to keep doing this work and may He protect you against Shaytan who wants to discourage you by looking at disappointing statistics.

    • Wa alaikumus Salam wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu.

      Thank you so much and Jazakillaahu khayra for your kind words of advice and encouragement.

      The reason for blogging is to seek the pleasure of Allah alone,
      and these regrets at times are due to over-excitement to reach more and more readers. A sort of greed I think.

      Alhamdulillaah my blog attracts lots of readers through search engines especially on topics containing Quranic phrases, and two days ago I gathered them under category – WOW Factor.

      My latest posts do not attract more readers. That’s why I was grumbling.
      And I don’t understand why it is like that.

      Of the two reasons which you cited for paying attention to stats, I give importance to the second one. That gives lot of experience to edit and add more points, to refine top posts so that I can improve and present things in a better way.

      I appreciate what you said on that one click changing the attitude of one person. Yes, if that happens, inshaaallah, what more you want. That is sufficient satisfaction and if Allah accepts the endeavour, InshaaAllah, the purpose for blogging is achieved.

      I aim for such quality readership and I am happy that you are there as support to guide/counsel if I err or say things that smacks of ungratefulness.

      Jazakillaahu Khayran Kaseera, and Baarakallaahu feek.

      Vassalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah.

      Yes, this site is based on Islamic Studies as a subject taught in all the schools of UAE.
      It is true that the internet is full of deviant websites. Please be assured that this website follows the Qur’an and the authentic traditions of the glorious Prophet, Muhammad sal lal laahu alaihi wa sallam.
