When Things Didn’t Work My Way! – True Story

My mom always told me that everything happens with the Will of God and one should never leave hope, cause HE is the best planner and HE will reveal it on the best times.

These are the words which I have been hearing since I was a child but never experienced it till recently. Today I want to share one of the examples of it that how God`s plan work!!

After my graduation, I started to look for a job and for that I gave many tests and interviews but things didn’t work in my favor.

And usually in my field if you get a job they will bond you for 2-3 years so I was hoping that soon I will be the lucky one who will make his place in a multi-national company. Weeks and months passed, and almost an year went out and I was still jobless.

Gradually the pressure was building up and I was getting more and more tensed about this situation but again my mom said its not in your control. God willing, you will find the right job on the right time.

After hearing these words my heart felt relief. And then the day came when I got more than a job.

I got scholarship from one of the best Universities of the world. Not only that, but even by air ticket, accomodation, living expenses, tuition fees would be borne by the Government.

Then I realized, why I hadn’t got a job. If I had got a job, I couldn’t go for higher studies since I didn’t had the money to bear the heavy expenses.

Moral: Work hard and leave the rest to God. What ever happens will be for your good.

    It is very good story but I think there is something missing. He did not tell us about how he has got the scholarship ? did he apply for that university and how the University choose him for this scholarship.

    “Work hard and leave the rest to God. What ever happens will be for your good”

    Even according to the sunnah of Prophet Muhammadh (PBUH) you have to tie the camel before leaving to ALLAH (SWT). Not as some say they leave it ALLAH (SWT) and do nothing for it!

    Subhanallah! We never expect the unexpected.
    Allah swt knows what is best for all of us. And no matter what happens, if we fail a test, don’t get the job we wanted, did not get accepeted at the desired University/College, or what ever happens, it is all from Allah swt, and we must always say Alhamdulillah because He gives us what is best for us. 
    Alhamdulillah for being able to find this website and subscribe to it =) Without it I would not learn many things and share laughs with others. 
    =) Salamualkm

      V/U don’t name even a person at your/our own will imagining he/she may mind/feel that as insulting,etc., then why v/u name ALLAH-swt with the names our/your will dictates us/u or inhereted by the pregens’ traditions. HE-swt is having HIS plentiful names which v/u must confine to instead of calling god, khuda, lord, eeshver, raam, etc.etc. ALLAH-swt Himself Says: ?? ?? ??? ?????? ???????? ???? ??????? ? ?? ???? ???? ??? ?? ?????”These are the names named by you and your forefathers, ALLAH-swt did’nt reveal them by His Order “. So take care naming ALLAH-swt (swt means ?????? ??????) with names neither ALLAH-swt Himself revealed nor His PROPHET-sawaws taught us via his Companions – Wa-JazakumAllah-o-Khaira ?????? ???? ????….!
