Considering from an inner outlook, a person can not think anything other than what is predestined for him. For instance, veils are being opened. He says, “I have contemplated deeply and attained this profundity” but the fact is however, the hour when he will think deeply is evident. The time is evident. Other than that he can not think deeply.
Unbelievers are not free, hypocrites are not free either. Some might presume that they are free but they are not. Hypocrites imagine that they have a boundless freedom. Actually all that they will be doing are defined millimeter by millimeter. They can only do what they have in their destiny and nothing more.
There is no time on the outside, there is one single moment. And that infinitely short time is called a moment. Within infinitely short period of time, God has created an infinitely long period of time. That is destiny. It is the faith in your mind. You have done and finished with everything in an infinitely short period of time.
As Almighty God is the One Who takes the life of that person, He brings one to this world with goodness and He takes that person to His Sight with goodness when he dies. So there is no meaning in crying. It is a characteristic of a Muslim to be content with what our Lord has ordained in our destiny and see the good in that destiny.
The mentality of mourning is fundamentally wrong. A Muslim would never do that. God is the One Who brings us to this world, and God is the One Who takes us back to His Sight. The right thing to do is to submit to our destiny and to put our trust in the goodness, beauty and abundance of what God gives. Anything other than that would not befit a Muslim.
One grovels when he doesn't know about destiny; he suffers. But if you are aware of destiny, God gives plentitude and bestows blessings upon you. Troubles you endure become your religious services. That is because submitting one's self to God in every moment of life is like performing prayers in every moment of life.
The thing you want might be bad for you but you would not know. You persistently want it to happen but actually that might be bad for you. There is goodness in it if God does not grant you your wish. Some people freak out when they are not given what they ask for. It may be that it will bring you troubles if you are given what you have asked for, and God is protecting you by not giving it to you.
One says ,"When I make a mistake, my good conscience disturbs me, it makes me unable to breath." That stems from letting Satan suffocate you. Why is there the need for that, my brother? You simply put your trust in God and that is it, you repent to God. What does repentance mean? You hope God will accept your repentance. Then, what does being suffocated mean? That would mean that you do not trust God. If you've made a mistake, you've made the mistake in your destiny. Did you decide to never to do it again? You did. If you are determined about this, that takes care of it.
Belief in angels, belief in destiny; these should be thought about one by one, pondered upon and settled in one's mind as perfect belief. I mean, a great majority of the public has such beliefs, but they remain as superficial information in their minds; however, settled knowledge could only be formed in devout Muslims. One needs to turn that into settled knowledge.
The moment trouble comes onto someone is very valuable. That is a beautiful moment of trial. Muslims should not let that opportunity pass by and they should say, "O my Lord, I come from You and I will return to You. I am Yours, You are the One Who creates everything. The trouble that came on to me is ready in Your Sight before it ever happened to me. I am ready for every type of trial You will give me. I am truly in need of any good You have in store for me. Bestow upon me the honor of living through this trial in beauty." Those around him should also be congratulating him for that trial. It is not right to dither.
Sorrow is another name for rebellion against God: It is unlawful. Sorrow means being dissatisfied with what is given by God. Being upset about what God has done and protesting against it is called sorrow. A man cries only if he is not satisfied with the fate God deemed him worthy of; he grieves, he resents it and he becomes upset.
In this world the trial we are living is a seemingly one; actually, in the esoteric sense, we are being educated, this world is a course. Because God already knows what we will do. He is the One Who created us. In other words, God knows what we will do since eternally before. We have already been here and done that. The point of this trial is to train us, to show us our true selves. God makes us face our true selves. In other words, He makes us love ourselves. He is preparing us for the afterlife.
