Man only achieves that which he strives for. Many a times people tend to only crib over their problems, while not sincerely putting in an effort to find and work out an apt solution.
Allah, the Creator & the Owner of the universe gives us guidance in the Qur’an with respect to striving to achieve the goals.
وَأَن لَّيْسَ لِلْإِنسَانِ إِلَّا مَا سَعَىٰ
And that man hath only that for which he maketh effort.
So what is required is the spirit to do the necessary thing to achieve the goals.
None can help us out if we keep our minds closed. A closed mind is a dead mind actually. And nothing great can be expected out of it.
I feel that the most of the problems around us are not due to anything but our own faults and mistakes. It is we who are responsible for all the chaos around us. We must stop blaming others, but blame our own selves for being in such a situation.
إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ ۗ
Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.
So, the change has to be from within us to see a change outside of us. Are we ready to make that decision and follow it with the necessary action?
