Muslims rejoice in Allah’s wisdom

A Muslim is never in despair, not even in most difficult moments. That is because they believe that Allah is the Creator of all things; that He has the power to create whatever He wants by saying it to “Be!”

The faithful knows that any trying times, he finds himself in, are tests created by Allah. He takes things in his stride, recalling what Allah Almighty has advised him: “...it may be that you hate something when it is good for you and it may be that you love something when it is bad for you. Allah knows and you do not know.” (Surah Baqara:216)

Everything turns positive for a Muslim with such a depth of soul. Whether it be trouble or difficulty, he knows that Allah creates them. He is believers’ Helper and Guardian. Any thing and everything that Allah Almighty has created is for the best and contains much wisdom.

Allah teaches the souls of those believers who have a sincere and unsullied belief in Him throughout the life of this world to be worthy of Paradise.

Every stage in this instruction is, by Allah’s will, a means whereby Muslims can take another step toward Paradise. Having faith does not mean making no mistakes. Allah creates human beings to be fallible, flawed and weak.

Muslims make mistakes the same way as everyone else. But the difference between them and those people who base themselves on the criteria of the society of the ignorant is that when Muslims realise the correct course of action by way of their consciences, or even if they do not but are reminded of it by others, they do not deliberately insist on continuing with their errors.

It is immediate repentance and sheltering in Allah and a sincere intention not to repeat one’s error but to learn from one’s mistakes. Muslims are valuable entities bearing the Spirit of Allah. According to the Holy Quran, it is improper for such people to exaggerate their mistakes and regard themselves as worthless because of them. It is Allah Who creates mistakes and causes people to commit them in destiny.

Even before a person is born it is already ordained in destiny at what time, on what date and where they will commit that error. Even if a person were to experience that moment a thousand times over they would still make the same mistake at the same time, on the same date and in the same place.

It is therefore wrong for people to lack self-confidence because of errors they have committed. Muslims never, under any circumstances, pay any heed to the approval of other people. They never become preoccupied with such doubts as “I wonder what people will say? What will they think of me? Will they love me any less? Will their trust in me be damaged?” Muslims seek to earn Allah’s approval alone.

In the event of an error or imperfection, they beg Allah to forgive them and hope that He will forgive their sins. They feel regret for their mistakes and strive to make up for their mistake and to improve their moral values by seeking shelter in Allah. They attain a deeper understanding of how much they need Allah. They know that He is infinitely forgiving. What matters is whether or not He approves of that person.

As Allah tells us in another verse from the Noble Quran: “As for those who believe and do right actions, the All-Merciful will bestow His love on them.” (Surah Maryam: 96)
