like a bird...

This is too beautiful to be kept to myself.

From Umar ibn Al-Khattab from the Prophet (sas) who said: 
"If only you relied on Allah a true reliance, He would provide sustenance for you just as He does the birds: They fly out in the morning empty and return in the afternoon with full stomachs." - 
Ahmad, An-Nasaa’I, Ibn Majah, Al-Hakim and At-Tirmidhi who said: "Hassan sahih"

“The provisions of a person seek him out, just like his death does.”
- Abu al-Darda’ (radhi’Allahu `anhu)
Time and time again, I’ve seen how provisions have come to those whom Allah intended. And even if it seems impossible or unexpected, it still comes upon the Command of the Most High. 
I’ve seen how sustenance walks in through the door for babies born into poverty with mothers worried sick just thinking about how they will feed this child along with the rest of their children. I’ve seen how that job position gets handed down to that single individual despite hundreds of people rushing towards the same role, but only he is selected. I’ve seen how business deals and transactions were almost completed but at the last minute, it was overturned and someone else takes that brand new house, car or investment. I’ve seen how people go through many marriage proposals with the certainty that each time this person is ‘the one’ only for it to end and yet someone else gets married because you see, it is tomorrow when you will see your destined spouse and not today. I’ve seen how the bread-seller brings out freshly baked bread onto the streets, but the swarm of customers somehow leave behind that loaf of bread because you see, it was written to reach your home and no-one else’s. 
I’ve seen time and time again how your provisions seek you out and do not miss you by a bit, just like one day death will seek you and it will not miss you out at all.
Like the Arabic proverb says: 
“What’s written for you will reach you, Even if it be between two mountains.And what’s not written for you will never reach you, Even if it be between your two lips.” 
Don’t worry, your provisions will come. But in the meantime, don’t stop working for it!
