When You Are Just An Option
Sometimes when I feel sad, I ask Allah why some people do things the exact opposite of what they think they stand up for.
Why it is so hard for them to at least apologies for what they have done or what they have to choose to believe in their life.
and then I heard my heart whispers, let people do what they think is correct to them. Let people be satisfied with their choice. If you believe that you are being oppressed, put all your hopes in Him, Allah is with those who have patience, and He shall do just to you just like what He has promised in His book
Allah will never treat you like an option. In fact, Allah understands you like no one can ever understand you. And He sympathizes with you the way that no one can ever sympathize with you. And it's ok to be sad, just read about the story of our Prophet Yaakub a.s. He was saddened for years when he lost his child. And when his other son complains about his sadness, Nabi Yaakub said I am only crying to Allah, and not to you.
This reminds me of one of the verses in the AQ, that the things that you chased after in this Dunya, they blossom a little bit, and then it fades away. Just like when you see a gardener or a farmer. He feels so thankful when there is rain. Then he sees the plants start growing up, little by little. Until the garden is filled up with flowers and greenery which are soothing to the eyes and make him feel happy. Then after some time, the flowers wither little by little. until what is left is only dry leaf and branches on the ground. That is what life in the Dunya is supposed to be. It is nothing but temporary joy and happiness. Nothing will last forever
“Demi masa. Sesungguhnya manusia itu benar-benar berada dalam kerugian..Yet most of use are being carried away pursuing fake happiness. But they will never fill their happy meters to the maximum all of the time because it will not last. Diverting their attention from the remembrance of Allah due to thinking too much about wealth, the future and their children.
So, it is ok to be sad. As Allah does not deny the beauty of that emotion flowing through His servant's heart. Indeed, Inallaha Ma'ana
