keeping in check

"I think, you must go, 'mandi air bunga' ah.." my good neighbour, Sam said. We were in the lift, and talking about the cash card theft. "..that day, M'sia accident, then now this.. i think maybe sometimes.. you got to believe in these things la ah.. " Hubby and I, just laughed at that.

I'm not going to 'mandi air bunga' - unless it's only to make me smell nice.

I've been thinking about the events happening over the past few weeks/months.

When we got the keys to the new house, we were elated. Then, we managed to sell our current house at our intended price... very happy. We planned and prepared for the new house. I got a new camera. We both have jobs, we can afford reasonable things we want. We were excited, buying things for the new house.. So many things to thank Allah for. All seemed well.

"Then, when they forgot that whereof they had been reminded, We opened unto them the gates of all things till, even as they were rejoicing in that which they were given, We seized them unawares, and lo! they were dumbfounded."
Al Quran, Al - An'am 6: 44

Na'udzubillah. I don't want that to happen to us. As such, I'm strangely kind of glad, or relieved, these things happened - and within what I can, with Allah's help, handle. Now, I know God is keeping me in check. Alhamdulillah. I should be more worried if there were totally no trials for us.

BUT STILL, we pray...

"Our Lord! Take us not to task if we forget or fall into error. Our Lord! Lay not upon us such a burden as You did lay upon those before us. Our Lord! Impose not on us that which we have not the strength to bear, grant us forgiveness and have mercy on us. You are our Protector. Help us against those who deny the truth."
Al Quran, Al Baqarah 2:286

Ameen, ya rabbal a'lamin.
