Help in Choosing the Right Path

    قَالَ الإِمَامُ الصَّادِقُ { عَليهِ السَّلامْ}:

    مَا إِسْتَخَارَ الله عَزَّ و جّلَّ عَبْدٌ مُؤْمِنٌ إلاَّ خَارَ الله لَهُ وَإِنْ وَقَعَ مَا يُكرِهُ.

al‑Imam Jafar al‑Sadiq (‘as), said: "There is no believing slave (of Allah) that asks Allah ‑the Glorious and High ‑for goodness except that Allah prepares the best for him even if he (the person) does not like it. "2

How unfortunate is it for man that sometimes that which is good for him lies in something that he does not like! Therefore, after one asks the best from Allah , he should not anticipate that what he is asking for will automatically be given to him and just as he would like it to be (since that may not be the right thing for him).
