Crash Realisation

The world is so unpredictable and unknown to us that we are actually in a murky four dimensional atmosphere that does not tell us anything of what it is or what we are. sometimes life is like that. this thought just sprung up from the parking lot. yes a small parking mistake would have given a slap on my car's bumper which would have leaked some cash out of my pocket but thanks to the all mighty who is the all knower and the owner of this four dimensional murky something.

The incident happened when i went to the Masjid for my prayers and as i was searching for a parking spot near the Masjid, i saw one on the left side. As i reversed my car into the car parking, i was sure it would go in perfectly and the car sped back smoothly when without any reason i just looked back to see that it was just millimetres away from hitting the car parked next to mine. The thought was so fast that i thanked god for it. The thought came in so involuntarily as though some one just caught my face and turned it. As i sat in the masjid i thought about it because it made me ponder even though it was just a small incident that happens frequently with any person who drives. Why i thought about it is itself another wonder of the universe. The matter struck me that, thoughts even though are produced from the human mind or is voluntarily created by a human, sometimes it is as though some instant message or command is sent to the brain that makes you do things. even while thinking so, there is an element of mixture of pre defined destiny and voluntary human action in this world and life. God has made this world and programmed it in such a way probably.

as the famous hadith goes , tie your camel first before leaving it up to god, human destiny, the world and whatever exists in this four dimensional murky atmosphere(The Universe), is linked with our own actions too. But there is another layer to this thought. while it is a voluntary action by a human that performs certain tasks in his life which  creates his destiny, his destiny is already written by the almighty before his existence and hence it is fading into each other, and the layer of thought is that the destiny has been written for a person and the action he takes is part of his destiny as is in my case. so destiny or Qadr or the control of 'The One' is a more powerful layer of function on this universe.

"Allah! There is no god but He,-the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permitteth? He knoweth what (appeareth to His creatures as) before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge except as He willeth. His Throne doth extend over the heavens and the earth, and He feeleth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme (in glory)."
