There’s hikmah (goodness) in every simple things. There’s reason in every little things. And last night I was told by a dear friend, ‘do you know Su, being forgotten is a blessed too?’. Taken by surprise of her saying, she explain in an easy sentence:
Forget and you can forgive pasts
Forget and you can move on future
Forget and you can build new life
Forget and live.
Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding. Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth, [saying], “Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire. [Ali-Imran: 190-191].
…And yes, we still agree that being forgetful person all the time is wrong. It’s wrong to keeps forgetting how many rakaah of solah you have perform. It’s wrong to forget the promises you’ve made. It’s wrong to forget ayah Quran.
Hard to admit but there’s blessed in forgetting something too right? A person with crimes suddenly been given hidayah by Allah, if he still hold on to his pasts, he wouldn’t probably be able to move a step further and repent. A person at fault, if he keeps remembering his mistakes and couldn’t make amend, will lose hope and faith. A person of losses, if he keeps thinking about those being at fought to him, will he be able to forgive them?
Nothing happen at chance unless Allah desire them 🙂
