While as a kid — I grew-up listening to my parents with the above stated quote, they simply won’t run old, much like an upbringing, though it’s rather classical, but it’s been there all along.
Thus, without me noticing — that the whole quotation was taken from a verse in The Book.
“But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you — and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” | QS 2:216.
Things aren’t always what they seem to be (during the first glance). Moses’ Ummi (mother) was told to throw her son in the river, while Joseph was left for dead in a well, Siti Maryam (Saint Virgin Mary) delivered a child alone, Ayesha (Fir’aun’s wife) was accused of a terrible sin, Jonah was swallowed by a whale, Abraham was thrown into the fire, Muhammad lost the love of his life Khadijah, and Ummi Salamah thought no one could be better than Abu Salamah (Peace and blessings be upon them all).
Yet, look at how it turned out for them in the end? They were bestowed upon life’s greatest ending stories to tell and that excellent quality of happily ever after to share. While everyone’s so obviously into a one perfect ending.
So, don’t you worry — The Almighty has a perfect plan for each one of you, be patience, have faith!
