قَالَ الإمَامُ الصَّادِقُ عَليهِ السَلامْ:
...مَا مِنْ عَبْدٍ مُؤْمِنٍ يَسْتَخِيرُ اللهَ فِي أَمْرٍ يُرِيدُهُ مَرَّةً واَحِدَةً إِلاَّ قَذِفَهُ بِخَيْرِ الأَمْرَيْنِ.
al‑Imam Jafar al‑Sadiq (‘as), said: "... there is no believing slave (of Allah) who asks the best from Allah one time in his affair, except that He makes a means between the two ways. “ 1
Allah, the Glorious and the High is the Purest Perfect Being, and as long as there are no obstacles from the servant's side to prevent His mercy from being manifested, then He will not withhold His blessings and grace.
Thus, if a true servant of Allah , with sincerity and a pure heart asks Him for guidance even one time, then without doubt, Allah will guide him towards that which is good and advisable for him.
