We believe that a true and comprehensive understanding of Islam would not be possible without careful recognition of the Prophetic Tradition and the Prophet's Household. And Allah is the Source of Strength.

Man vs Wild 2

" In the original proposition Man vs Wild, it was discussed how there is alot for man to learn from animals, and man becomes an animal when his approach to life becomes self centric, selfish, insecure, when man stops caring for others around him, and when man stops to realize that any resources, knowledge, wealth, strength and potential that Allah has bestowed to man, is not for him but for others around him.

Does one believe that if he has been given the best of finances, resources, strength, health, IQ, competence, that he will outshine all others and will achieve all of his targets?

Have you ever imagined how the cheetah is the fastest land mammal and an excellent hunter, and that it is such an unfair advantage for the cheetah to be "blessed" with these skills and potential. The deer and the rabbit and the zebra should be slaughtered by the cheetah at will. But in real life, many days the cheetah also sleeps hungry, and the rabbit dodges the cheetah to enter into its burrow despites its pace handicap.

The cheetah does not get what it wants, but what it needs. Nature makes sure that the Cheetah does not die of hunger with all its predatory advantages, while the rabbit does not get extinct due to its place in the food chain.

When Allah makes sure the system remains in balance, no man should believe they are entitled to something alot more because they have been blessed with certain qualities over another man. 

There will be people much competent than you and me, who will be struggling with making the ends meet vs ourselves, and there will be people much below us in human capacity, yet will be blessed with alot more resources and opportunities.

One must learn to be patient, because if Allah has blessed you with the speed of cheetah, you will only catch the rabbit when it is your time.

As Mawla Ali (AS) said precisely; neither before time, nor more than what is destined. "
