For example, if you put some water in a glass, it takes the shape of the glass. If you run the water through a tangled hose, it will take the shape of that also.
The same way, a Muslim should be flexible to the orders of Allah. He should fit into whatever Allah wants.
If we put an iron into the glass, then either the glass will break or the iron will break. The same way, if we are not flexible to the orders of Allah and become hard like iron, then either we will break or we will break the orders of Allah.
Water can quench your thirst and provide coolness and serenity, whereas at the same time it still has the power to destroy everything which comes in it’s way.
RasulAllah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam- peace be upon him) said, “The believers are very obedient (to Allah), gentle, and kind, like an obedient camel which when led follows and when made to sit, even though on a rock, does so obediently.”
”Have those who disbelieved not considered that the heaven and the earth were a joined entity, and We separated them and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?” Qur’an: 21- 30
