As parents, we often stop our children from doing things we know will harm them.
Sometimes, we keep the sweetest things away from them, knowing they are not good for them. Sometimes, we prevent them from the things they want to do the most because we know it will hurt them. Sometimes we limit the “fun” they wish to have, just because something else is better for them right now. Sometimes, we make them do things they don’t want to, just because they are good for them. Sometimes, we send them to school or an activity knowing they will enjoy it one day, even if they don’t seem to understand how right now. We do all of this because we love them, wish the best for them and we know what is better for them. But we are met with tears, tantrums and disappointment.
Allah (swt) loves us many times more than our mothers. Sometimes, He takes things away from us or puts us through experiences that give us pain. But He always does what is best for us. We may not see it now. We may not see it for years. We may not see it till the next world. But we must have faith that whatever He does is always for the best. There is always some good in a loss, in a trial, in a difficulty, or in a suffering. Trust Allah. He is Al-Hakeem, the Most Wise. He is Al-Aleem, the Most Knowing. “…It may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.” (Surah Baqarah 2:216)
