This morning I managed to bust our car tyre on my way out to work. One of the rear tyres hit the road divider and busted. I even heard the tyre went pssssss.
It was a bummer and I felt so bad to have caused this unnecessary trouble. I had to take the day off and stay home. Big A needs to get the tyre fixed before tomorrow and I feel so so bad. I created the mess and he has to come clean it up for us.
Definitely not a very good start to the day.
Since I've got so much time at home with Little A today, while dully scrolling through facebook I found a post about rezeki. And after reading through it I felt much much better.
It's about rezeki (sustenance) and redha (acceptance).
It's about how as muslims, we should be able to have the patience to accept the different kinds of trials that Allah bestows upon us. From my understanding, trials could also be regarded as rezeki as with it, we are tested and with tests, come the remembrance of Allah. With the remembrance of Allah then comes patience and acceptance. With acceptance, we will be rewarded. With patience, we could get into heaven. Reading this reminds me again of my favourite verse in the Quran.
But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you, and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. Allah knows while you know not.
Who knows just what dreadful mishap I may have avoided because of the incident this morning. Allah knows, while we do not know.
As muslims we are always taught to think and stay positive. Always take the glass as half full. Always have good thoughts and of course, good intentions.
Therefore, I choose to stay positive and have acceptance on the fact that the tyre was only meant to be of good use to us up until this morning. And with it gone, we may have avoided a worse outcome somewhere along the way, and with that thought I will choose to be grateful.
Alhamdulillah. May Allah grant us all His mercy, protection, and blessings. May we always be in His good favour, and guidance.
What has reached you was never meant to miss you and what has missed you was never meant to reach you
-Prophet Muhammad SAW-
It really touches me how Allah taps into our lives and gives us subtle reminders when we need them most. It's His little ways of showing His love and mercy onto us.
Have faith in Allah and keep calm.
