Allah Almighty is the best of the planner, sometimes He takes decisions that are beyond our imaginations and apparently it looks like they are wrong (God forbid) but in actual they are right because He knows and we don’t. It is just impossible for humans to reach the depth of the decisions of Allah Almighty. 

Sometimes when we see an accident in which the parents of a new born baby die, we immediately think how this baby will grow up? But since Allah Almighty is the best of the planner, He opens up so many other gates for the baby to grow. The more we would learn Quran and Hadith, the more our belief would become stronger and stronger on Allah’s (SWT) decisions. Quran Recitation is a great way of strengthening the Imaan (belief) on Allah (SWT).

this world is a test for all of us , as Allah (SWT) in Quran : “Blessed be He in Whose hands is Dominion; and He over all things hath Power, He Who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deed: and He is the Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving”.  Life and death are for our test and as it is explained before that Allah (SWT) has His own way of taking decisions, what we need to do is to seek Allah (SWT) protection against the misery and despair. This is our test that if Allah sends misery and despair to us, would we be still remembering Him or we start making complaints.

The joy and sorrow, delight and grief, happiness and happiness, misery and comfort all come from Allah (SWT). We need to have a strong belief that it is all from Allah (SWT) and should not lose our temper and control at all.

Allah (SWT) has given us some practices to perform when misery and despair touches someone.  The Salah (prayer) is the most powerful weapon of a Muslim.  This we learn from the life of Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) that whenever He had a problem, he prayed Salah. There are Hadith that states Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) used to offer Salah at the times of storm and solar eclipse. Here is the Hadith:

“Hazrat Aisha (Radhiy Allaho Anha) relates that whenever a strong wind bringing dense clouds started blowing, the Prophet’s (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) face turned pale with the fear of Allah. He became restive and would go in and out with perturbation, and would recite the following prayer: "0, my Allah!  I ask of  Thee the good out of  this wind,  the  good  out  of  that which  is in  this wind,  and  the  good  out of  that which is the outcome of  this wind.  I  seek refuge  in Thee from  the evil of  this wind, from the  evil out of  that which is in this wind, and from the evil  out of  that which is  the outcome of  this wind."”
