Behind the scene

Ya Allah relieve me from this illness….from this problem…

Ya Allah I NEED that job…please make sure they approve me for it…

Ya Allah I love her so much…I can’t live without him…make him/her as my life partner…

….No acceptance…No results.

Why? Why He is not accepting my dua’as? WHYYYY??

And to Allah belong the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and the earth and to Him will be returned the matter, all of it, so worship Him and rely upon Him. And your Lord is not unaware of that which you do.”

{Qur’an 11:123}

So, your dua’as didn’t get accepted…let me ask you this simple question before going any further…Do you have your complete TRUST in Him? Do you firmly believe and approve to the fact that EVERYTHING that happens in this world and the other is in His hands?

OK, let me give you this simple example. So, when we watch a TV soap or a movie…is that which is portrayed in that big electronic device REAL? Or is there a behind the scene process going on? And I mean if you say no…then you might as well show me the road to Hogwarts please, I would really like to go there.

But unfortunately, we all know that there is in fact a ‘Behind the Scene’ process that we cannot see. And that is where all the work is done. Which is what I want you to imagine our lives in this world are like.

We all are part of this big play. Someone has reached at the top and made his dream come true, others have fallen down with hopeless hearts. Yesterday a new character came into the play, while the one who used to hang around has finished his part…But like every play…who is the director of all of this? And who has written the script? Aaand where is the ‘Behind the scenes’ process going on??

The director is indeed the Creator of this whole ‘play’: Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.

The script is also written by the All Knower.

Behind the scenes? Also, ran by Him, the All Powerful.

BUT WE, the characters, CANNOT SEE IT!!! Yes, my dear folks…this play is quite challenging as the people themselves cannot see the truth behind the curtains of the unseen. That is just sooooo exciting!!!

Anyways, jokes apart, the real thing is that we don’t know if that which we are asking for is actually good for us at all or at that specific time and place. We just don’t know. We can ask for a thousand and one things but at the end of the day we only know that which is in front of us.

As humans, we tend to make our decisions based on whatever we see before our eyes because that’s how our minds work, but as Muslims we have to understand that there is so much more going on that our eyes are unable to see but our Master does.

So don’t worry. Don’t worry that you didn’t get that dream job or that your sweetheart didn’t become your soul mate. It wasn’t meant to be to begin with.

You will lose your loved ones, you will face extreme difficulties, illnesses and hardships. Tears will flow before your eyes, your heart will cry out making you impossible to find a light of hope. But don’t you worry. This is just a test. Be firm on your trust in Allah. One of His names is Al-Wali which means The Protective Friend. He is there. Near you. Protecting you. comforting you. And He knows what’s best for you.

And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.”                                                                                                                          {Qur’an 2:186}

So don’t be sad…the world is not a wish-granting factory but a test. You don’t know what’s going on behind the scene. Maybe that is the best thing that could happen to you or maybe that is the road which will lead you to your happiness.
