All Praise be to Allaah
We all want good things to happen in our lives, but too often we want it now...not later. When it doesn't happen that way, we are tempted to ask, "When, Allaah, when?" Most of us need to grow in the area of trusting Allaah instead of focusing on the "when" question. If you're missing Happiness and peace, you're not trusting Allaah. If your mind feels worn out all the time, you're not trusting Allaah.
Sometimes knowing everything can be uncomfortable and can even hurt you. I spent a large part of my life being impatient, frustrated and disappointed because there were things I didn't know. Allaah had to teach me to leave things alone and quit feeling that I needed to know everything. I finally learned to trust the One who knows all things and accept that some questions may never be answered. We prove that we trust Allaah when we refuse to worry.
Allaah wants us to live by discernment—revelation knowledge, not head knowledge. It's difficult to exercise discernment if you're always trying to figure out everything. But when you're willing to say, "Allaah, I can't figure this out, so I'm going to trust You to give me revelation that will set me free," then you can be comfortable in spite of not knowing. Trusting Allaah often requires not knowing how He is going to accomplish what needs to be done and not knowing when He will do it. We often say Allaah is never late, but generally He isn't early either. Why? Because He uses times of waiting to stretch our faith in Him and to bring about change and growth in our lives.
• Wait With Patience
We spend a lot of time in our lives waiting because change is a process. Many people want change, but they don't want to go through the waiting process. But the truth is, waiting is a given—we are going to wait. The question is, are we going to wait the wrong or right way? If we wait the wrong way, we'll be miserable; but if we decide to wait Allaah's way, we can become patient and enjoy the wait. It takes practice, but as we let Allaah help us in each situation, we develop patience, which is one of the most important as Muslim virtues.
Patience is a fruit of the Spirit (see Al Baqarah 153). It's developed only under trial, so we must not run from difficult situations.
'' O ye who believe! Persevere in patience and constancy; vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear Allah; that ye may prosper.'' [Al Maidah 200]
As we develop patience, the Quran says we finally feel completely satisfied—lacking nothing. Even our relationship with Allaah involves progressive changes. We learn to trust Allaah by going through many experiences that require trust. By seeing Allaah's faithfulness over and over, we let go of trusting ourselves, and gradually we place our trust in Him.
Looking at it like this, it is easy to see how timing plays an important part in learning to trust Him. If He did everything we asked for immediately, we would never grow and develop. Timing and trust work side by side.
