Luck Luck

Have you ever wondered that in this world there are people who always look decent and lucky to have everything they want in their life, and on the other side, there are many more people who are always be the less fortunate one? I have been around this question after realizing that I often say "Good luck!" to everyone who had told me about something they are going to do. So what's luck anyway? Does it only apply to certain kind of people? And what about effort?

So they said that if there's a will.. there's a way, even it is written in the Alquran that : 
"..Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. And when Allah intends for a people ill, there is no repelling it. And there is not for them besides Him any patron." (Ar-Rad 11), 
so when one was born poor, s/he can change his/her life by making efforts. 

I have seen lots of poor people in my country who struggle hard to keep themselves stand strong still, to save their children from hunger, to make a better living for the family, by doing everything they could every single day. But after all the efforts why they are still unfortunate and ill-fated? Has anything wrong there with it?

This is just a random thought and I won't blame or curse any parts here. I believe that rizq has been written for every one of us and won't be exchanged, it won't be given to any other person even if you don't pick it up. Consider this as the conclusion statement I end up with.. that never surrender in embracing Allah's blessings is the ultimate key to my previous questions. Do sincere pray, make best effort, and then consign the rest to the Almighty. He knows what's the best for us. 
"But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not."(Al Baqarah: 216)  
 and He never gives any trials more than we can only afford. 
"Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned." (Al Baqarah: 286).
I remember that a friend once said that no matter how hard this life might be for you, don't despair, stop complaining, and be grateful for any circumstances you are standing at now. Luck is just the game of the world, get out of it.. Because the biggest matter to be worried about is the Life in the hereafter. Forget our ambition to be the winner in this perishable life, think of more about our preparation to win the only place where there's no more earthy problem you have to deal with.

We are actually just having a rest under a shady tree now, so we will not be forever here, will we? Make sure that we already provide ourself with good provision to arrive safe at the only final destination.. Jannah.

Though I'm still faaaaar away from being well-prepared, let's keep on learning how to be so. Good luck, everyone! :D happy friday!
