He Knows and we don't. Putting life in perspectives

"Allah decides what's best. He knows and we don't. We are the slaves to Allah and we don't deserve to place orders to Allah and expect a return quickly. Ya Allah, if that's good to me, please give me, but if don't, I trust your decision. The point of doa is to acknowledge before Allah that He provides and we are in need. "

قل يا عبادي الذين اسرفوا على انفسهم لا تقنطوا من رحمة الله ان الله يغفر الذنوب جميعا انه هو الغفور الرحيم

Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful." Surah Az-Zumar:53

ولقد اوحي اليك والى الذين من قبلك لئن اشركت ليحبطن عملك ولتكونن من الخاسرين

"And it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should associate [anything] with Allah , your work would surely become worthless, and you would surely be among the losers."Surah Az-Zumar:65

بل الله فاعبد وكن من الشاكرين

"Rather, worship [only] Allah and be among the grateful." Surah Az-Zumar:66

Zakaria berkata pada dirinya Maha Suci Allah SWT dan Dia Maha Kuasa atas segala sesuatu. Lalu kerinduan mulai menyelimuti hatinya dan ia mulai menginginkan keturunan. Nabi Zakaria berdoa kepada Tuhannya:

"(Yang dibacakan ini adalah) penjelasan tentang rahmat Tuhan kamu kepada hamba-Nya Zakaria, yaitu tatkala ia berdoa kepada Tuhannya dengan suara yang lembut. Ia berkata: 'Ya Tuhanku, sesungguhnya tulangku telah lemah dan kepalaku telah ditumbuhi uban, dan aku belum pernah kecewa dalam berdoa kepada Engkau, ya Tuhanku. Dan sesungguhnya aku khawatir terhadap mawaliku sepeningalku, sedang istriku adalah seseorang yang mandul, maka anugerahilah aku dari sisi Engkau seorang putra, yang akmi mewarisi aku dan mewarisi sebagian keluarga Yakub; dan jadikanlah ia, ya Tuhanku, seorangyang diridahi. " (QS. Maryam: 2-6)

"Your success is determined by Allah's barakah n your effort. You put effort, Allah gives barakah. Or When it doesn't happened, it's either you don't put enough effort, Allah doesn't give barakah. or if you put effort, Allah decides that's the best for you. Also, we need to remember that every single success we had is due to Allah's help not your intelligence etc. "

"We need to have a calm heart, positive attitude, have tawakkul in Allah and put your effort"

Putting life in perspective

 فما اوتيتم من شيء فمتاع الحياة الدنيا وما عند الله خير وابقى للذين امنوا وعلى ربهم يتوكلون

So whatever thing you have been given - it is but [for] enjoyment of the worldly life. But what is with Allah is better and more lasting for those who have believed and upon their Lord rely. Surah Ash-Shuraa:36

Definition Mata': 
1.something that reaches it's maturity, ready to use/benefited from.
eg: our experience (bad or good is to make us grow). which include regrets.
2. something that will come to end.
eg: our physical strength, time n life!

So, sambil dok plan how much chapters to study, what's our plan in the next 5 years etc, think for a moment, what's our plan for akhirat which is last longer than this dunia? because it doesn't matter at all kalau sume plans duniawi kte x building up for the akhirat n making us closer to Allah. 

Hence, we need to make plan for our akhirat in a daily, how we gonna improve our time, what are we going to do now? And don't let people's perception shape you- be it praise or critics. because at the end, Allah's perception matters!
