Allah Knows and I do not!
It so happens sometimes that you convince yourself into thinking you are not having high hopes concerning a matter. However, if you were really honest to yourself you would see that you were simply deceiving yourself. Because, when you do not get the thing you want you are upset and distraught. If your heart didn't long for the thing in the first place why would you be so upset? That is, because, deep down inside you wanted it badly. But when you do not find it coming your way, you are frustrated. Why am I saying all this? Why because I have been going through this in the last couple of days. At the beginning, I tell myself that I am not going to have high hopes this time as I have bitter experiences for doing so. Thus having this mindset I approach, and after things do not turn out as I want them to, I am miserable! I ASK Allah to give me patience and I ask Him to make me accept His qadr, even though at the beginning it always seems a bit difficult with practice it is possible in sha Allah. For Allaah does not give a burden to anyone beyond their ability.
