  • It is from Allaah's mercy that we do not know about our future, or we would have died a thousand deaths (metaphorically) even before the calamity befell us; or our lives would have been miserable just thinking about that which is going to befall us.

    Moreover, even if we were given the knowledge of the future, we could not change it because "the Pen has been lifted and pages have dried".
    The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

    أعجز الناس من عجز عن الدعاء، وأبخل الناس من بخل بالسلام

    "The most paralyzed person is the one who is incapable of (or prevented from) making Duaa; and the most miserly person is the one who is miser even in saying Salaam."

    [al-Saheehah (601) and graded as "Saheeh" by Shaikh al-Albaanee]
    Husn-Dhann Bi-llaah (having good thoughts about Allaah that He alone can remove the Harm or distress that has afflicted you, and that He تعالى does help His servants when they pray to Him) is the key factor in removing it:

    قُلْ مَن ذَا الَّذِي يَعْصِمُكُم مِّنَ اللَّـهِ إِنْ أَرَادَ بِكُمْ سُوءًا أَوْ أَرَادَ بِكُمْ رَحْمَةً ۚ وَلَا يَجِدُونَ لَهُم مِّن دُونِ اللَّـهِ وَلِيًّا وَلَا نَصِيرًا

    {Say: "Who is he who can protect you from Allah if He intends to harm you, or intends mercy on you?" And they will not find, besides Allah, for themselves any Wali (protector, supporter, etc.) or any helper.}

    ? [Surah al-Ahzaab (33): 17]
    When a person realizes that he has been tested, he should repent to Allaah and seek his forgiveness, as was done by Prophet Dawood عليه السلام:

    وَظَنَّ دَاوُودُ أَنَّمَا فَتَنَّاهُ فَاسْتَغْفَرَ رَبَّهُ وَخَرَّ رَاكِعًا وَأَنَابَ

    {And Dawud became certain that We had tried him and he sought Forgiveness of his Lord, and he fell down into prostration and turned (to Allah) in repentance}

    [Surah Saad (38): 24]
    Zindagi woh hisaab hai jiss ko pechay ja kar theek nahin ke ja sakti, behtar hai yahan say theek karo aur pechale ko sabaq ke tour par lay lo aur aagay badho.
