    I learned the hard way that what you desire for yourself is not always good for you.

    I made dua and I got everything I had asked for.


    It ended up to be a nightmare.

    Every night when I would go to bed, I would wonder If I would ever wake up from this nightmare.

    It was the worst experience ever.


    Never ask for what you desire.

    Ask Allaah for that which is best for you.

    Jazaa'akillah Khair. That's a great point, alhamdulillah. Has made me wonder if this thread is encouraging the wrong sort of mentality. I hope not.

    I wonder if that's a lesson learned. I imagine the millions of us who burn our hands like that give it another go as soon as a bit of time passes. Avoiding the great bother of taking precautions and the valuable 10 seconds we save...

    Yes. I guess sometimes It's hard not to because as Muslims we want to assume the best of people...

    Good advice, goes for us as well, we tell ourselves we have social media for the benefits of it, while the disadvantages of it are bigger and more in number..

    Not my own experience, but something that came up in discussion with someone.

    Lesson: Don't leave your young child watching YouTube videos/nasheeds in the hope they'll start picking up a bit of Arabic. As soon as they discover how, they'll become attached to the useless junk from the kuffaar and will only want to watch that.

    Lesson: The othering. In Qur'an 28:15, Musa () is not only saying it was of his doing but also how he works!.

    Example:

    If one is alone in a desperate situation and people are inattentive, one suspects an imbalance (somethings not right) then beware of othering and avoid doing an action to resolve the problem out of incomplete knowledge, and seek refuge in Allah () for that is most likely the time when the shaytan seizes the moment and misleads by insinuating whispers.

    (The arrangements of those words in the example represents the chronological order of events.)

    It occured to me thrice to notice this repetitive pattern.
    If the plot is repetitive then it is feeble once it is known.

    Only Allah () knows best.

    1. Drinking/eating something knowing it is too hot but still do anyway.

    2. Leaving revision until the last minute.

    3. Packing for holiday last minute. Was too late to get some items that I needed.

    Ordering way too much dishes when you are at all you can eat...and then it hits you in a middle of a bite...but you still got all the food left...and you do the same thing again when you go for all you can eat next time...the cycle continues...

    Around the time the timing belt of your car needs changing (if it has one), best not to hang about thinking you can keep driving and not get it replaced... Thought I'd keep going a while longer as the car seemed alright to drive, and then...

    (Wasn't worth getting the car fixed afterwards because the damage was so bad. Had to scrap an otherwise excellent little car. )
