Everything Happens for a Reason

An old time friend in uitm Atai (thanks alot:)) shared this story in our group. I must admit it is very true. Everything happens for a reason and Allah knows best. After one year arwah left me and the kids, i learnt a lot and despite of all the challenges, tests and obstacles we faced, there will always be blessings at the end of the episode.

As for me, i personally feels the difference, the strength, the courage and most of all to be more thankful and "syukur" to Him.

I wish my children grow up to be better each day, be thankful and i know this is a great challenge to me.

Feel free to share this story ya:)

A King had a male servant who, in all circumstances always said to him; My king, do not be discouraged because everything Allah does is perfect, no mistakes. One day, they went hunting and a wild animal attacked the king,the servant managed to kill the animal but couldn't prevent his majesty from losing a finger. Furious and without showing gratitude, the King said; if Allah was good,
I would not have been attacked and lost one finger. The servant replied;
Despite all these things, I can only tell you that Allah is good and everything He does is perfect,He is never wrong. Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his servant. Later, he left for another hunt and was captured by savages who use human beings for sacrifice. In the altar, the savages found out that the king didn't have one finger in place, he was released because he was considered not "complete" to be offered to the Gods.

On his return to the palace, he authorized the release of his servant and said; My friend, Allah was really good to me. I was almost killed but for lack of a single finger I was let go. But I have a question; If Allah is so good, why did He allow me to put you in jail?. He replied; My king, if I had gone with you, I would have been sacrificed because I have no missing finger. Everything Allah does is perfect, He is never wrong.

Often we complain about life, and the incidents that happen to us, forgetting that nothing is random, and that everything has a purpose. Allah knows why he chose you to face the challenge simply because everything happens for a reason, things do happen for our own good.

Allah is Great!
