Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him said, “The Most High’s Saying, ‘Every day He has a matter to bring forth,’ [Rahmaan 55:29] He enriches the poor, and reduces to poverty the rich, He causes the healthy to become sick and the ailing to become healthy, gives sanctuary to the afraid and makes fearful those who were safe, and so on.
Allaah, the Most High, does that every day, such matters, without doubt, changing due to His Wisdom.
He, The Most High, said, ‘Thinketh man that he is to be left neglected?’ [Qiyaamah 75:36] So we believe that Allaah does not decree a matter but out of wisdom, only that sometimes we may know what it is and at others we don’t.”

Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “From the fruits of eemaan in Qadr is the repelling of self-amazement when one attains what one wanted, because its attainment is a blessing from Allaah عزوجل owing to the means of [attaining] good and success which He decreed, so He thanks Allaah تعالى for that and leaves self-admiration.
Expelling worry and discontent when one misses out on what one wanted or when something disliked happens is also from its fruits, because that was going to happen due to the Qadaa of Allaah تعالى to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, so it was definitely going to happen, so he has patience regarding that and hopes for the reward.”
’Aqidatu Ahlis-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah, p. 50.
