Qada’ dan Qadar

Have you ever asked why sometimes things never happen according to plan? Even we have prepared and arrange all the substance properly, why is it not turn out as we wish? Is it because we are not good enough to deserve it? Or something better is meant for us? How strong we should be to accept all the consequences?

Ya, I understand that we cannot have all the things that we wish. Sometimes, we chase something with great effort but have to end up with frustration. Sometimes, we have to lose something to gain another thing. And the most pathetic case is, we didn’t get the thing that we hunt but we lost something that we already have. Bak kata pepatah, “Yang dikejar tak dapat, yang dikendong berciciran”. Sooo sad!

Reflects from these ironic situations, as normal human being we can’t deny to feel upset, irritated and depressed. But the only thing that can make a world of difference is the way we react. 90% of all the things that comes in our life are totally determined by us. Agree? We make choices everyday - we choose to be good or bad. As karma, what comes around goes around. But still, we don’t have any control on the 10%… (Discover the 90/10 Principle)

But there are also some points that I learnt from a friend - that I might have forgotten sometimes. Nasihatnya, sebagai seorang Muslim kita patut percaya dengan ketentuan Allah.

Allah telah menetapkan segala sesuatu. Api Allah tetapkan terasa panas, Air Allah tetapkan terasa sejuk..tapi Allah berkuasa menjadikan Api itu sejuk seperti dalam kisah Nabi Ibrahim.. Allah beri kita akal, maka gunakanlah akal itu. Tapi akal mesti dipimpin oleh Al-Quran dan As-sunnah. Kerana akal boleh sesat jika tidak dipimpin. Allah memberi kita keistimewaan kerana kita dapat membuat pilihan antara untuk melakukan taat atau melakukan kemaksiatan. Atas pilihan kita, kita akan dipertanggungjawabkan. Jangan sesekali kita melakukan maksiat dan kemudian mengatakan itu adalah takdir. Kita mesti berusaha tapi serahlah kepada Allah akan hasil dan balasannya. Kita berharaplah kepada Allah. Takutlah kepada Allah. Berdoalah kepada Allah, kerana Allah la yg berkuasa menentukan segala galanya. Sesungguhnya Allah lebih Mengetahui. - ARoL

I agree. Islam is complete. We have al-Quran and Sunnah as a guidance. And Allah has given us the most magical powerful brain to use wisely. Hence, the choice is always in our hands.
