Today, we’ve lost sight of common sense.
We place our trust in things and other people.
We feel that if we have contact with such and such a person or prominent figure; our work will be sorted, or problem solved. We end up relying on the “means” rather than the One behind the “means”.
Ponder over your life and think about how Allah Almighty, time and time again, has taught you how haqeer (worthless) the “means” are without Him.
He teaches us that we cannot do anything by ourselves, and that it is not in the creation’s power to do so by themselves.
Rather; its a case of laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billah! (There is no power nor might except for Allah alone).
Allah can take us out of our miseries. He will send us the help we crave, in the right way, and at the right time.
