Know, the true nature of your Beloved.
In His loving eyes, your every thought,
Word and movement is always –
– The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him.
Whatever He decides is the best; and thus you must accept whatever He plans for you. Accept, submit and surrender to His Will and Judgement. Whatever your brother or sister possesses, God planned and gave it to him or her. If you develop animosity because of that, it means you are not happy with your Lord and are opposing His Wishes. When God wants something to happen – if He wants a person to be rich, to be kind, to be beautiful, to be handsome, to be generous – you cannot challenge His Will. You cannot have animosity for that person’s gifts, for it will take you into a state of unbelief.
Many people do not realise that they have this trait. Look at yourself and be truthful. Are you not thinking, “why is my boss pressuring me? He is not better than me. He’s stupid; he doesn’t know anything”, or something of that sort. You must not say such things, for a believer must surrender to God’s Will.”
