:: 谋事在人,成事在天 إن شاء الله‎, Insha'Allah ::

谋事在人,成事在天
móu shì zài rén,chéng shì zài tiān

〖出处〗明·罗贯中《三国演义》第一百三回·上方谷司马受困 五丈原诸葛禳星...孔明叹曰:“谋事在人,成事在天。不可强也!”后人有诗叹曰:“谷口风狂烈焰飘,何期骤雨降青霄。武侯妙计如能就,安得山河属晋朝!”

〖解释〗旧谚。意思是自己已经尽力而为,至于能否达到目的,那就要看时运如何了。
The planning lies with man, the outcome with Heaven. Man proposes, God disposes。

“人”“谋”是过程,“天”“成”是结果;“人”“谋”在前,“天”“成”在后;先有“人”“谋”,后有“天”“成”;有了“人”“谋”,在预定时间内不一定有“天”“成”;但终归会有“天”“成”;但没有“人”“谋”,绝不会有“天”“成”!通过以上的分析,我们可以看到,“谋事在人,成事在天”这句成语告诉我们,我们在做事情的时候,一定要学会正确对待,正确处理过程与结果的关系。

For each (such person) there are (angels) in succession, before and behind him: They guard him by command of Allah. Verily never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change it themselves (with their own souls). But when (once) Allah willeth a people's punishment, there can be no turning it back, nor will they find, besides Him, any to protect.

( سورة الرعد , Ar-Rad, Chapter #13, Verse #11)

:: Never give up Hope ::

Assalam Alaikum,

A short lecture on hope which gives an individual an enormous amount of strength~ Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda also provides some examples of how one should not give up hope, especially towards other people, for we do not know their life journey and only Allah, Subhana Wa Ta'ala, knows~

Personally, I believe in the power of the word 'Insha'Allah'~ There's also a great amount of hope in this word... To live in hope and placing high hopes, is to believe in the power of Allah, Subhana Wa Ta'ala, superseding all other creations~

Enjoy!

W'salam,
Khadijah C.
