Being Pleased with the Decision of Allah Ta‘ala


Hazrat Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] mentioned:

It is necessary for man to be pleased and grateful to Allah Ta‘ala for whatever condition He has kept him in. This is called “radha bil qadha’ (being pleased with the decisions of Allah Ta‘ala). This is really the dictates of humility. It is necessary for a lover of Allah Ta‘ala to be pleased with whatever His beloved decides for him. Therefore, for one to be uncomfortable and troubled in any way is incorrect, especially when we believe that Allah Ta‘ala is our Rabb and the Rabb of the entire world. Whatever a Murabbi (Nurturer) does, he does it for our tarbiyah (nurturing) and for our goodness even though one undergoes some difficulty.

For this reason, you should not feel any difficulty or hardship especially when the hadeeth says “The Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam) were the ones afflicted with the most amount of calamities, thereafter those who are closest to the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam).” (Hadhrat Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] pg. 296)
