On Contentment.

Assalam alaikum,
Contentment with the Decree of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is one of the acts of worship of the heart. The Noble Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:--"He has tasted the sweetness of faith: he who is content with Allah as his Lord, Islam as his religion and Muhammad as his Prophet."(Muslim)

We should thus appreciate that God has portioned for us...for each one...our provision. As long as we work, we get what is written for us. In this regard, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

"Know that even if the whole of community were to gather together to benefit with something, they would not benefit you with anything execept that which Allah has already recorded for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with something, they would not be able to harm you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded against you".(Tirmidhi)

Knowing all this should empower us, because we thereby know that everything that happens is by the permission of God Almighty. This should not prevent us from reflecting and trying to figure out how our actions played a role, but learning from experience is part of Contentment because you trust that God is teaching you a lesson through trial...
