The ‘Aha’ Moment

He it is Who has sent down to thee the Book: In it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they are the foundation of the Book: others are allegorical. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking discord, and searching for its hidden meanings, but no one knows its hidden meanings except Allah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in the Book; the whole of it is from our Lord:” and none will grasp the Message except men of understanding.
(Quran 3:7)

You will not be asked about the result, you will only be asked about the effort

“So for the true believer the point is always God; success and failure, happiness and sadness are means not cause for depression or giving up, nor self-righteousness and egoism. One either achieves piety or dies trying; either way one is in the grace of God, Most High. That is what life and Religion are about. That is Tawhid in practice.”
