Don't ask "Why?"

Has it ever occured to you hard your life is. How heavy it has burdened you. That you really envy the life of others being so smooth and perfect. How they are now so famous, so joyous and happy. Then you would start comparing them with you, your life, the shoes you're now in, the steps that you would have to take. And you end the day with;
If only I had chose to do that, then everything would be different.
Why is my life so miserable? Why do I have to suffer like this?


Brothers and sisters, everyday I see my friends getting better and greater than me. Just for your info, the author of Langit Ilahi, is one of my friends. And everyday I see him as who he is now, and my heart would whisper, I could have been like him. There was once this day when I said to my mum, Mum,

I've made the wrong choice. If only I could go back.

But Alhamdulillah, one day I read a verse that really touched me. This verse is read so commonly that many forget to feel its real meanings.
Allah promises us;

No soul does Allah Place a burden greater than it can bear. It gets every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns. (And Pray:) "Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error; our Lord! Lay not on us a burden Like that which You did lay on those before us;
Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear.
Blot out our sins, and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Protector; Help us against those who stand against faith.
[Al-Baqarah 2:286]

There, what else is there for me to ask. What other reason do I need to know.
Why would I need Why?
In reading this verse again and again, especially through the hardships in my life, I managed to realize that in this life, there are many roads to reach happiness and heaven. Stop believing in only One, and you'll see that your miseries and suffers can actually be one of them,
Only if you just believe in Allah.
