Life Is Like a Baking Cake

A little boy was telling his Grandma how "everything had been
going wrong, School problems, family problems, health problems,
problems with friends, etc.

Meanwhile, Grandma was baking a cake. She asked her grandson if
he would like to eat the cake, which, of course, he did-

"Here, have some cooking oil."
Tuck" said the boy.
"How about a couple of raw eggs?"
"Gross, Grandma!"
"Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?"
"Grandma, those are all yucky!"
To which Grandma replied, "Yes, all those things seem

unacceptable when seen in isolation. But when they are put together in
the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!"

Allah (STW)  works the same way,  Many times we wonder why he
would let us go through such bad and difficult times.

But Allah (STW) knows that when He puts these things all
according to His order, they always work for good J We just have to trust
Him and, eventually, they will all contribute to something wonderful!
