rom the moment a person opens his eyes to theworld, God ordains every event that takes place inhis life. All is created by God in compliance with aplan, and for a divine purpose just as He says in a verse of the Qur'an, "Indeed, all things We created withpredestination." (Surat al-Qamar: 49) Consequently, all aperson needs to do is to submit himself to the destiny determined by his Creator, remaining aware that every
thing will turn good in the end.In the 216th verse of Surat al-Baqara, God says: "It may bethat you hate something when it is good for you and it may be that you love something when it is bad for you. God knows and you do not know." For a believer whounderstands this fact, uninterrupted joy of faith becomesan unchanging quality of life. The fate decreed by God isflawless. For a person willing to recognise the good in all things, he f
inds only blessings and a divine purpose, hiddenwithin an entire complex of inter-connected events.
