Power generation and transmission is one of those mysterious parts of life to me. I’m sure many of you know much more about it than I do. But one thing I’m sure of. There is no strength nor power except by Allah.
رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous.
However Allah guides us to His path, and however many people help us along the way, and however many people we surround ourselves with, copy, model ourselves after, follow, emulate, when it comes down to it, we’re all going to stand naked and alone (and hopefully not too afraid) in front of Allah.
I sometimes wonder… when we ask Allah to guide us to the straight path, is there only the one path, or are there multiple paths? I mean, the path leads from wherever to Allah’s forgiveness and mercy, but you and I, we’re likely coming from many different directions…
