Excerpt from Umar Palanpuri’s speeches.

One more thing I want to say don’t insist that this want of mine has to be fulfilled. In some cases, getting what we want is beneficial to us and in some case cases not getting what we want is beneficial for us. Only Allah knows what is beneficial and what’s not. Why then should we insist?

For example, passenger has his suitcase, passport, ticket everything is ready except boarding the airplane. Check-in is also done. As passenger was about to board the plane a thief stole his suitcase which contained his passport as well. Now infront of the passenger, everyone else is boarding the plane except him.

Seeing all this the passenger starts exclaiming “this is so unfortunate, why did this happen? This work had to be completed! Now I cannot do it. My whole plan failed.” In anguish he would say all this. While being sad, he sees the plane take off infront of him. All of a sudden in the air due to malfunction, it suspends and crashes to the ground infront of him, not one person survives. When he sees this, he said “Praise be to Allah, that my plan failed!” Now if he sees the thief he would reward him for stealing his suitcase.

If something doesn’t happen according to what we want, its Allah’s wisdom. This is meaning of being content with destiny. Whatever condition Allah places us in, we be content but commandment of Allah should be fulfilled.

Second example, one beautiful woman from privileged family, there are four proposals. Everyone making effort to influence the decision, eventually one offer got accepted. Marriage happened and thousands were spent. Now those three families that offered alliances they are sad “Oh the marriage didn’t happen! It didn’t work out”. The family whose offer got accepted “Yes! the marriage happened, things worked out”.

Four months went by, things came to surface such that divorce happened. When divorce happened, the family whose offer got accepted they said “if only things didn’t work out, it would have been better for us”. And the other three families “Praise be to Allah, that it didn’t work out for us.”

Thus, in some instances if things work out they are good. While in other instances if things don’t work out they are good for us as well. We plan but we rely on Allah on the outcome. Whatever Allah decides, there is good in it, condition being we follow His commandments.

Another thing I believe is having the yaqeen and trust in Allah Ta'ala. It's not necessary for the Almighty to show us what could have happened and that we will eventually see the 'benefits' of why 'bad' things happened to us, but it's accepting whatever 'bad' happened to us is because Allah Ta'ala wanted it to happen.

Don't get me wrong I'm not saying it's easy, and I struggle at times.
It's probably more difficult if you're living in a country ravaged by war and some of your family have been killed, going through tough times to see how all that is good for you - but this is where the yaqeen in Allah comes in.

Yes true . we are humans created by ALLAH , HE created , HE gave air to breath , HE gave food to eat , HE gave everything to us , HE is the creator , sustainer and HE will be the Judge in Akhirath ,He created the whole universe where a man is just tiny small part of the whole universe hence whats ever happening in this World is what HE wished to happen , nothing happens without His Wish , hence a tiny creature like me ( Human) should just submit totally to ALLAH and just live till last breadth ( till HE allow us to live) in the way ALLAH wants us to live
Live in remembrance of ALLAH and die remembering ALLAH .

اَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللّٰهِ تَطْمَىٕنُّ الْقُلُوْبُؕ

Verily the heart finds peace only in remembrance of ALLAH.
