Few days back I called a friend from my mobile only to discover that my balance had come to an end. And I got the following message
Aap ki matlooba call aap ki mojooda raqam say ziaada hay….. (Your desired call costs more than your present balance)
This line got stuck in my mind and kept playing back in my memory and I wondered what is so special about it….until a couple of days later when I sat down to make my monthly planner I almost heard this voice inside me …..
Aap ka Matlooba level of ilm and imaan Aap ki mojooda koshish say ziada hay…. (Your desired level of knowledge and faith is greater than your present standard of efforts)
And so I realised the truth that often I just “dream” of things and my efforts are scattered and weak. Also when we say that “we make so much effort but it doesn’t seem to work”
We rarely define to ourselves what effort we have really made? And in what direction?
The MAIN thing is that our efforts lack planning. So they lose effect.
Therefore to achieve the “desired” results we need to put in the right amount of effort in the right direction at the right time and with proper evaluation of our capacities and targets.
May Allah guide us all Ameen
