When it comes to food, every individual has a certain preference. Fish may perhaps be the favourite meal for some and a definite distaste for others. It is for this reason at times the host finds out from the guest as to what meal should be prepared. The desire of the host is to please the guest.

In the same way we are all the servants of Allah Ta‘ala. Our object and desire is to please our Allah Ta‘ala. If we were to use our own intelligence and invent ways to please Allah Ta‘ala, then most definitely we would have failed miserably. Our loving Allah Ta‘ala, having mercy on us, sent to us the final messenger Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) to teach us how to please our Creator, Allah Ta‘ala. As long as we live our lives on the beautiful and perfect way shown to us by Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) then we will enjoy the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala.
