What is my literal meaning of SUCCESS ?


Salamullahialaikum,
As for today, I just want to share my opinion, of the literal meaning of success.
It is "See if U Can Create the Eternally Spiritual Supremacy".
Does it make any sense ?
Yes, for me, it does.

If you are going to take your some-important exam's result by tomorrow, or next week, then coincidentally your friend's mom is the one who is in-charge in the result, would you just ask his mom to reveal your result? Or would you wait till the time really comes for itself naturally? How would you react? Both things, if you do, the result is still the same. And actually, your result is already written in Lauh Mahfuz, since you were born. So, is it still the same, both things you would do to get your result?

My answer is No. I would rather wait, till the result comes for itself. (If your answer is yes, it is ok for your opinion)

In one of hadith sohih, our Prophet said that Allah has already given our destiny in life.
In fact, in Al-Quran, Allah said that everything happened has already been written in Lauh Mahfuz. Since the day the we were born, till the day we die. Everything were all well-planned, including our achievement, our spouses, our living, our families, our deaths and else, that we see in this real world.

Then, do human have an option to make ? If all those things are well-planned by Allah the Almighty, that nobody can change, what the creatures can do?

As we already know, Allah made this world, not only with His planning, but with Law. It is 'Sunnatullah' , or the Law of the World. Human has to choose his own way of living. If he suicides, he will die. If he never studied, he will fail. Of coz, it is already written, but we don't know what is written for us. We never know the future, either we be rich or poor, we be good or bad, we be strong or weak.. or else.

As the world is in the Law of the World's boundary, we can expect what we will achieve in life, due to our deeds. So what do we have? We just have to 'usaha' or put our efforts in living. If you want to succeed, put all your efforts to lead to success. If you do want success, but you don't turn yourself in the path, then you will never succeed. We are not made to judge what God do, but we are made to strive and struggle in life. To live means to suffer, not to relaxing ourselves and judging God and people. Some people said, "I was born to be a thief, it is what God has written for me", "I am bad because God has made me bad". It is all nonsense.

So back to the main point, the literal meaning of success is that you believe that what results you in your life, is according to your deeds, and your achievement is equivalent to your doings (Law of the World, what you get is what you give). And the efforts is not only by doing things perfectly, but it includes all elements of your living. It includes your public relationship, God Spot & relationship with Him, attitude, skills and everything that relates to your life and success.

I dare to make a move to blog this thing due my 20 years living experiences. The more efforts you put, the more successful you be. So that's why, my answer is No in the question above that i mentioned it just now, because I just want to put all my efforts, before I know the result, though it is already written, since my life began. It is not same (to me), because if it happens unnaturally, I think it will not satisfy myself, because I am not doing my best (I should have had more time to struggle putting all my efforts). But if it happens naturally, and I already put my best efforts, the satisfaction I will taste. Even if my result is not like I planned or wished, but I am satisfied, of struggling and striving to get the best and get what I wished before.

That's why, I opine, the literal meaning of Success is... How can you control your spiritual that leads to your deeds, constantly and eternally, and the more supreme it get, the more efforts will you put, the more efforts you put .. then the more successful you be.
Wallahua'lam. Wallahuta'ala al-Muwaffiq.

Just a thing of my common sense.

erm... the first place.. is.. Allah has made us.. the creatures who have a brain.. and the intelligent.. enough to choose.. enough to decide..

Then, Allah has given us.. the world...which is within His Law.. Allah Maha Adil.. He creates everything for reasons.. and makes everything for reasons..

The law of world can be discovered by all people, (including non muslims) though they don't believe in God, but they believe in the existence of the System of the World..(I've mentioned it earlier), then people realised how is the 'reality' can be created ? It is through ACTIONS.

Next, we never know.. what is written in Lauh Mahfuz.. and we can never get beyond our limitation to think about God's Wisdom.. and we have NO RIGHT to do so..

Then.. what do we have .. to live? Following the Law of World that Allah has made, and be what we want..(usual living) and of course, that the best people chosen by Allah is the one who is going to save the humanity.. (World Islamization)..
oke..

Back to the question..
"the more efforts you put, the more successful you be".. I didn't say it by myself, it is said by who's passed.. So, that's why.. my literal meaning of success doesnt mean that you got the straight A's in exam, or..you be rich.. or.. else (that what you want).. but.. the more efforts you put, then it will in the same time, (if you do realize) make up your spiritual quotient, which is.. you will accept everything after you have tried, put all your efforts... but you give the result to God, who knows what is best for His creatures.. so.. that's my literal meaning of success..
Hope you understand.. or else, don't think too much in my not-worth-thinking opinion, if you have yours, then just make it up for you..
Please do comment me if I'm mistaken.

=We are human.. who have limitation, so just do everything within our limts, or else.. you will lose yourself=

Salam.

i might have the same argument with huda. i know everything has been written in the loh mahfuz, but isn't there always a space for us to put some effort so that we cud be better? or otherwise, everyone wud be arguing - why Allah had created me to become a thief and not others?

on the point of waiting for the exam results, i would have to agree with you. buat gapo nak tau awal-awal. it would be thriller to know at the time we are supposed to know rather than being impatient to know earlier.

success to me is an achievement that satisfies my needs, so long it doesn't contradict to what Allah has prescribed in the nas.
