Being pleased with the decree of Allah Ta’ala

Q: I am in a huge problem. Everything seems impossible. I don’t know what to do. I have asked Allah to help me but know I feel that everything is over. I have applied for higher studies. But I didn’t get selected. I don’t have enough marks. I have been studying very hard for 13 years in school but on the end of the year everything went wrong. My marks was very bad I went from an  A to C and E. And for my higher study I was on a waiting list (I know I have been on that list for 4-5 month) yesterday I sent them an e-Mail and They replied that they will not take more students and in December is the final exam in nutrition. I just need to get selected at get in to nutrition before December. Then everything will be fine but what do I do. It seems impossible. I have faith in Allah that he will not let that happen to me. Please in the name of Allah help me. I need an urgent wazifa to make this possible.


A: A believer under all circumstances should be pleased with the decree of Allah Ta’ala. At times something is not good for a person, hence Allah Ta’ala does not allow it to take place.  A person on the other hand in his weak understanding feels it is good for him. Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’an: 

كُتِبَ عَلَيكُمُ القِتالُ وَهُوَ كُرهٌ لَكُم ۖ وَعَسىٰ أَن تَكرَهوا شَيـًٔا وَهُوَ خَيرٌ لَكُم ۖ وَعَسىٰ أَن تُحِبّوا شَيـًٔا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَكُم ۗ ​وَاللَّـهُ يَعلَمُ وَأَنتُم لا تَعلَمونَ ﴿البقرة: ٢١٦﴾

Fighting (jihaad) is prescribed for you, and you dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and that you love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knows, and you do not know. (216)

After your five daily Salaah make the following dua:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّى أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَافِيَةَ فِى الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّى أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَفْوَ وَالْعَافِيَةَ فِى دِينِى وَدُنْيَاىَ وَأَهْلِى وَمَالِى اللَّهُمَّ اسْتُرْ عَوْرَتِى وَآمِنْ رَوْعَاتِى اللَّهُمَّ ​احْفَظْنِى مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَىَّ وَمِنْ خَلْفِى وَعَنْ يَمِينِى وَعَنْ شِمَالِى وَمِنْ فَوْقِى وَأَعُوذُ بِعَظَمَتِكَ أَنْ أُغْتَالَ مِنْ تَحْتِى (سنن ابي داود # 5076)

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