I discovered a very important surah that I wanted to relate to my followers
Surah Baqarah:30 ".. I know what you do not know"
Surah AlKahfi: 60~82 Is about the story of Musa who wanted to learn from Khidir. But Khidir warned Musa " you can never be patient if you follow me. How can you be patient if you do not have sufficient knowledge about it"
These 2 ayats illustrates to us the VAST KNOWLEDGE of Allah. There is absolutely no way we can understand Allah's knowledge. He is the ALL KNOWING. HE knows the past, the present and ALL the permutations of the future. You can never imagine how many ways things can turn out in the future with what we do today.
Allah knows ALL. We as slaves of Allah have the power to decide our destiny. That Allah give us the limited power to decide. That is why we (slaves) are accountable for what what we do. Yes, Allah knows the outcome of our decision, but the fact remains that we have a certain power that Allah give.
This is consistent with our believe that there are 2 components in our lives.
1. Our own effort
2. Allah's will
That is why in Surah Fatihah
"Only to you we enslaves ourselves and to you we seek help"
2 things to remember
1. Give your best
2. Make dua to Allah
So very powerful and so very simple.
I make doa that ALL of us give our best to be closer to Allah. And I make doa that Allah help us to be closer to HIM.
