We pray and pray, but nothing changes! We go through hard situations in life and request certain things or some solutions, but we never get it!
Why does Allah not give us everything we ask for when we ask for it? We pray and pray, but nothing changes! We go through hard situations in life and request certain things or some solutions, but we never get it!
In this video, Nouman Ali Khan clarifies the nature of the relation between the human and his god. And how sometimes the person thinks that he can treat this relationship just like the other ones he has in his life! Should it be similar to the one he has with his boss? Or with his parents? Should this relationship resemble the one he is sharing with his wife or the relation he has with his business partner? Actually, the obvious answer is no! It is totally different as one of the fundamentals of entering Islam is to accept Allah as the ultimate master and declare ourselves as his loyal slaves. So now, does a slave negotiate with his master? Can he ever blame his master for denying him stuff? Why would a slave feel that he’s entitled to his master’s gifts and offerings? Once we understand the true nature of the relationship with Allah and accept it, once we know that he is a merciful master that should be praised and thanked, then we will get the answers to all our questions of why, because actually only then we will understand that these questions are out of the relationship context.
