Fruit of one's labor | That which He manifests in a given time


Ahh....gotta document this - the fruit of my labor yesterday and today. Alhamdulillah for good health so we are able to work that body. Alhamdulillah that He keeps manifesting all kinds of gifts - big or small - at His appointed time. 

I have been busy re-arranging the furniture at my crib in KL, dust off each book and tidy up those shelves.'s now time to chill. Ya Huu! 

Here's one quote from one of the books on that shelf. It's an advice from Shaykh Ibn Athaillah as-Sakandari on how to deal with time. How we should accept each and everything that He chooses to manifest at His perfect timing and not ask for a better or any other situation.

"It's sheer stupidity to seek to introduce in a given time what Allah has not manifested in it."

"Only Allah does know what is better for the servant. Since a servant cannot predict what is good and what is bad for him, it is not fair for him to seek for a better situation. He is requested to make better use of whatever situation given to him rather than asking for a better situation. The servant becomes more sincere and honest if he works for the master in whatever situation he was asked to work without asking for a change in the situation of the work. If he believes that he can become more productive and efficient in a different situation, it is tantamount to believing that he knows better than Allah what situation is better for him."

Wish y'all a pleasant and productive weekend. May we remain content for whatever situation He chooses to manifest for us, each day, each time.

Allahu a'lam.
