Trust in your Lord


The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "No one of you will enter Paradise by his deeds alone." His companions asked, "Not even you, O Messenger of Allah?"
He (peace be upon him) said, "Not even me, unless Allah covers me with His Grace and Mercy"

My take:
SubhanAllah... This prophetic saying reminded me of our complete dependence on our Lord and his Mercy. No doubt, we have to work hard, be kind/sincere in all our actions, and always keep working towards developing ourselves, but, Ultimately, our destiny/fate is in our Lord's hands. And, knowing this should give us comfort. I remember Shaykh Hamza Yusuf put it nicely, 'We are in good hands.'

Be safe, work hard, and have complete trust in your Lord.
