True Submission – a thought by Imam Abdul Latif Finch

sajdah

Submission to God is difficult.

One of the more difficult aspects of it is accepting what He does with us and others when we don’t like it.

Usually in that event we will ask for a reason.

We suspect that by knowing why He has done what we don’t like we can see the benefit, perhaps.

By seeing the benefit we will like it.

By liking it we can submit again.

This is not submission at all.

This is proof against us that we only “sumbit” when and in the way we want to as opposed to the way He wants us to.

Besides, if God were to explain to us the reasons for all that He has done in just our single life alone, how much of that explanation would we grasp much less an explanation that would entail the rest of the universe and how we fit into it?
