The famous Brazilian footballer Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, also known as Kaka, says that even at the age of 12 he knew “that it is faith that decides whether something will happen or not."
At the age of 18 Kara, a devout believer, had an accident in a swimming pool and broke a vertebra. Kaka criticizes the doctors who said it was a matter of luck that he could walk normally, and says that he and his family regarded the situation as a blessing from Allah: "They [the doctors] were talking about luck, and my family was talking about God. We knew that it was His hand that had saved me."
Kaka has the words “God is faithful” stitched on his clothes and says, “My family and my belief in God … are the things which determine my life. I do want to live my life in the right way and live my life close to God."
It is most important for one to trust in the infinite might of Allah and to live in the awareness that it is Allah Who creates all things. Almighty Allah reveals in the Qur’an that all things happen under His control:
[He is] the Originator of the heavens and earth. When He decides on something, He just says to it, “Be!” and it is. (Surat al-Baqara, 117)2009-01-16 00:00:00
