Allah's Plans

Some things are beyond planning.
And life doesn't always turn out as planned.
You don't plan for a broken heart.
You don't plan for an autistic child.
You don't plan for spinsterhood.
You don't plan for a lump in your breast.

You plan to be young forever.
You plan to climb the corporate ladder.
You plan to be rich
and powerful.
You plan to be acclaimed and successful.
You plan to conquer the universe.
You plan to fall in love - and be loved forever.

You don't plan to be sad.
You don't plan to be hurt.
You don't plan to be broke.
You don't plan to be betrayed.
You don't plan to be alone in this world
You plan to be happy.
You don't plan to be shattered .

Sometimes if you work hard enough, you can get what you want.
MOST times, what you want and what you
get are two different things.

We, mortals, plan. But so does Allah in the heavens.
Sometimes, it is difficult to understand Allah's plans
especially when His plans are not in consonance with ours .

Often, when He sends us crisis, we turn to Him in anger. True,
we cannot choose what Allah wishes us to carry, but we can carry it
with courage knowing that He will never abandon us nor send
something we cannot cope with .

Sometimes, Allah breaks our spirit to save our soul.
Sometimes, He breaks our heart to make us whole.
Sometimes, He allows pain so we can be stronger.
Sometimes, Allah sends us failure so we can be humble.
Sometimes, He allows illness so we can take better care of
And sometimes, Allah takes everything away from us so we can learn
the value of everything He gave us

Make plans, but understand that we
live by Allah's grace.

'My reconciliation (with good) is only through Allah; it is upon
Him that I trust and it is to Him that I resort.' [Hud: 88]


One day, one friend asked another,
How is it that you are always so happy?
You have so much energy,
and you never seem to get down."
With her eyes smiling, she said,
"I know the Secret!"
What secret is that?"
To which she replied,
"I'll tell you all about it,
but you have to promise to
share the Secret with others."
"The secret is this:

I have learned there is little I can do
in my life that will make me truly happy.
I must depend on Allah to make
me happy and to meet my needs.
When a need arises in my life,
I have to trust Almighty Allah to supply
according to HIS riches.
I have learned most of the time
I don't need half of what I think I do.
He has never let me down.
Since I learned that 'Secret', I am happy."

The questioner's first thought was,
"That's too simple!"
But upon reflecting over her own life
she recalled how she thought a bigger house would make her happy, but it didn't!
She thought a better paying job
would make her happy, but it hadn't.
When did she realize her greatest happiness?
Sitting on the floor with her grandchildren,
playing games, eating pizza or reading a story,
a simple gift from Allah Almighty.
Now you know it too!
We can't depend on people to make us happy.
Only Allah in His infinite wisdom can do that.

Trust HIM!
And now I pass the Secret on to you!
So once you get it, what will you do?
YOU have to tell someone the Secret, too!
That Allah in His wisdom will take care of YOU!
But it's not really a secret...
We just have to believe it and do it...
Really trust Him!

In everything you do, put Allah first, and he will direct you and
crown your effort with success.

(Proverbs 3:6)
