Allah blessed me with Tawakkul.
I spent most of my teenage years fighting Qadr and Alhamdulillah I spend my early adult life, slowly understanding and growing content with the concept of Qadr. I think it all comes with experience, if it doesn’t break you. Allah has enabled me to understand the wisdom of Qadr. I can wholeheartedly say, what nearly broke me, shattered me and the experience that I almost took my life for was for the best not only because I am who I am today because I’ve learned and grown from it. I am living proof that Allah does not test anyone more then they can bear. I find so much comfort in those words alone. Wallahi I can’t imagine who I would be without my blessing ordeal. Alhamdulillah for everything
By the will of Allah, my Tawakkul was tested today. I am overwhelmed by a bittersweet feeling.
A few months ago, I slowly grew fond of a brother I worked with closely. I don’t normally condone the mixing of genders among Muslims, especially with the younger generation. Nevertheless, I thought we were both mature, despite him being a few months younger than me, according to my calculations, but my fondness oddly did not waiver. After consulting the best of all consultants, I did the most unzainably thing ever. I asked him a question; a marriage related question. Not a “will you marry question” because I’m not equipped for that but a ‘do you want to get to know each other for the purpose of marriage’ question.
Today, I was granted the most beautiful and wise response to my question. A mashallah no with due cause. I can imagine anyone in my shoes would not have been overwhelmed with sheer happiness as was I. Why? Because I know this person well enough to know that they calculated the rejection. In all my years, I’ve never uttered such a question, I’ve never really been with anyone, I never been rejected. But there is a first time for everything, Alhamdulillah.

SubhanAllah!!! Every rejection is definitely for the best… I have been there, seen it and realize it every moment, Alhamdulillah…
Loved this article very much <3 and MashaAllah you have handled the situation very positively.
I love that even though you were faced with rejection you are able to take a positive from instead of dwelling on it and making your self unnecessarily upset. What is meant for you is meant for you and when it is due for you nothing will stop you from receiving it by Gods will!
Alhamdulillah. I think it also helped that I didn’t allow myself to get emotionally invested.
I think it turned out beautifully by Allahs decree.
Thanks for your lovely comment.
Masha’Allah I like your positivity! Everything happens for a reason &this was for the good of course! Alhamdulillah
People rarely ever look at rejection like the way you have. Masha’Allah! May Allah reward you abundantly for your patience.
hmmm, the lesson I learnt from this piece is never to be afraid of rejection. I like the way you went about the situation, it shows hikma. Masha Allah!
I am glad that you asked the best of best….and got the answer…you bravely handled it….take care….You can something very good in life to come….
Salam, I have first hand seen and experienced all this. Sometimes you can invest in something (not necessarily relationship) and realise after that the reject/failure whatever it is, there was a purpose behind it. My faith in Allah is complete, I fully believe if I am not getting something there is a good solid reason behind it!
