Not qualifying for admission into university

Q: I have done inter last year with average marks. Eight months have passed and I haven’t got admission in university. I have done 6 to 7 tests but I have not qualified. What is the reason. I am very upset. Please answer.


A: There is no need to get upset. Exams do not decide your future nor is it a means of being delivered from Jahannum. A Muslim should be concerned for one of these two reasons.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

كُلُّ نَفسٍ ذائِقَةُ المَوتِ وَإِنَّما تُوَفَّونَ أُجورَكُم يَومَ القِيـمَةِ فَمَن زُحزِحَ عَنِ النّارِ وَأُدخِلَ الجَنَّةَ فَقَد فازَ وَمَا الحَيوةُ الدُّنيا إِلّا مَتـعُ الغُرورِ ﴿آل عمران: ١٨٥﴾
