Imagine that you’re shopping with someone you love. No, not just someone you love. Someone you’re madly in love with.
Now suppose that this person picks out a gift for you in a particular color and style. How would you feel about that gift?
Chances are you’ll cherish it simply because of who gave it to you, simply because of who picked it out for you.
There are things, events, people in your life that Allah has picked out for you. Are you pleased with His choice?
Do we not love the gift simply because of who picked it out? You will know you really love someone, when you love anything that comes from them no matter what it is. And you will love their gift, not for any quality in the gift itself, but only for who it came from.
