Where Allah wants us to be

I received this email from a very dear friend of mine last week and I do feel like sharing this.

"As you might know, the head of a company survived September 11 (US terrorist attack) because his son started kindergarten.

Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts.

One woman was late because her alarm clock didn't go off in time.

One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike because of an auto accident.

One of them missed his bus..

One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change.

One's car wouldn't start.

One went back to answer the telephone.

One had a child that dawdled and didn't get ready as soon as he should have.

One couldn't get a taxi.

The one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a band-aid. That is why he is alive today.

Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone... all the little things that annoy me, I think to myself, this is exactly where Allah wants me to be at this very moment..

Next time your morning seems to be going wrong, the children are slow getting dressed, you can't seem to find the car keys, you hit every traffic light, don't get mad or frustrated; Allah is at work watching over you.

May Allah continue to bless you with all those annoying little things and may you remember their possible purpose."

Interesting isn't it? Nothing coincidence happens in life. Teringat this one time. I want to go to school and I was quite late actually. While walking to the bus stop, the 117 bus just passed through. And yeah, i missed it. Time tu mulut xstop2 membebel la kan psl tertinggal bas. Then, i decided to take the 111 bus to Confederation and take the O-train to Carleton instead. After riding the bus, I saw the 117 bus that I missed stranded on the side of the road. Turns out the bus rosak. And time ni baru la fikir "nasib baek xnaek bas tu.".

Wherever you might be at times; be it late for school, or you left your phone and have to go back and get it, or etc, Allah wants you to be there at that time. No matter how annoying it is, everything happens for a reason eyh?
