I do not understand about the meaning of the word RISK.
I have read words like “take the risk, if you win, you will be happy, if you lose you will be wise” hmm..
I realize that it is not in my current job, I always repeat the words; “RISK”.
I always tell my clients that in this life we will be dealing with “uncertainty”. Something that we can not predict, unpredictable, out of our calculations, beyond our ability.
It is become my habit, if there is something interesting and to my mind, I always wanted to know what the “experts” say about the meaning of the word risk.
An outline of risk means a result or consequence that may occur due to an ongoing process or event to come. In insurance terms, risk can be defined as a situation of uncertainty, in which case an undesirable situation can cause a loss. (wikipedia.com)
So, the risk is something negative? is it true ?
I’m more comfortable and tend to agree with the terms in the fields of insurance risk, that risk is an “uncertainty”. It could be a positive direction or negative direction.
It seems better able to close my statement above, that take the risk if you win you will be happy, if you lose you will be wise.
That is something we must always remember, and always be the grip of our lives, as a religion, that;
1. Lines of our life has been written.
“And to Him are the keys of the unseen; no one knows except Himself, and He knows what is on land and at sea, and not a leaf but He knows that fall (again), and not a seed fall was in the dark earth, and not something that is wet or dry, but written in a clear (Lawh Mahfuz). “(Surat al-An’am, 6: 59).
2. There is no ‘accident’ in life.
“We are not in a situation and do not read a verse from the Quran and you do not do any action without Our witnessing you do it on you at the time. No escape from your Lord, even as knowledge of zarrah (atom) in the earth or in heaven. No one is smaller and not (also) is larger than that, but (all recorded) in a Clear Book (Lawh Mahfuz). “(Qur’an, 10: 61).
Do you not know that Allah knows what is in the heavens and the earth?; That in this there was a book (Lawh Mahfuz). Truly that is very easy for Allah. “(Surah Al-Hajj : 70)
3. Imam Ibn al-Qayyim explained: “Islam is a mercy for every human being, but the faithful to receive this grace and benefit of the world and the Hereafter. While rejecting the unbelievers “.
So, how should we behave?
We have to always use our minds to think about the meaning of the creation of man and what it means.
Allah says in the Qu’ran: “Did you suppose, that the fact we had created you in play (only), and that you will not be returned to Us?
(QS Al-Mukminun paragraph 115)
In another letter, Allah says:. “ And they think about the creation of the heavens and the earth (saying):” Our Lord, You have not created this in vain, Glory to Thee, And save us from the torment of hell. “(Surah Al-Imran verse 191),
Also in verse: “and are not we create sky and earth and everything in between both of them playing”. (Surat Anbiya ‘paragraph 16)
The above statement is very clear, that man and the whole universe, not in creating the mess and waste.
We are concerned that we as humans have many disadvantages mentioned were:
1. Man was WEAK
“God wanted to give relief to you and used as human nature is weak” (Surah Annisa: 28)
2. It’s easy to fall for a human
“O man, what has deceived you (disobedience) of your Lord the Merciful” (Surah Al-Infithar: 6)
3. Man was negligent
“Glory, splendor have been neglecting you” (Surah At-takaatsur 1)
4. Man is cowardly / Easy WORRY
“Be sure we shall test thee give, with little fear, hunger, lack of wealth, lives and fruits. And give glad tidings to those who wait. “(Surah Al-Baqarah 155)
4. Man grieves
“Surely the believers, Jews, the Christians and the people Shabiin, anyone among them who really believe in Allah and the Last Day and work righteousness, they will receive their reward from God, no concern to them, and not (also) they grieve “(Surah Al Baqarah: 62)
6. Man in a hurry
And pray for the evil man as he prayed for good. And human nature is in a hurry. (Al-Isra ’11)
7. Man LIKE REFUTES
“He has created man’s sperm, he suddenly became a real contender.” (Surat an-Nahl 4)
8. Men’s overcommitment LIKE
“And when the man he replaced danger We pray to the state of lying, sitting or standing, but after we remove the danger thereof, he (again) through (a perverted way), as if he never prayed to us to (remove) hazards that have happened to him. That the people who looked well beyond what they were doing. “(Surah Yunus: 12)
“Behold! Surely man is really beyond the limits “(Surat al-Alaq: 6)
9. Man was forgetful
“And if the man is overwritten harm, he begged (aid) to God by turning to Him, then when God gave His blessings to him forgot that he would never harm him pray (to God) to (remove) before it, and he forges allies for God to mislead (men) from His way. Say: “Have fun with disbelief that the time: behold thou art of the Fire.” (Surah Az-Zumar:
10. Man laments LIKE
“If he had he lamented distress” (Surah Al Ma’arij: 20)
“Man does not weary of asking good, and if they are overwritten doom him to hopeless despair again.” (Surah Al-Fushshilat: 20)
“And when We gave pleasure to the man he undoubtedly turn, and turn one’s back with a cocky attitude, and his distress when he inevitably falls into despair” (al-Isra ’83)
11. Man is stingy
“Say:” Then if you master the vocabulary of my Lord-the treasury of grace, He treasures you hold it, for fear of spending. “And the man was very stingy.” (Surat al-Isra ‘: 100)
12. Man LIKE deny favors
And they make a party of his servants as his portion instead. Behold, the man really that was real (toward the grace of God). (Az-Zukhruf Q.S.: 15)
The real man is broken, do not thank the Lord, (Surat al-’Aadiyaat: 6)
13.Man is DZALIM and STUPID
“We have indeed the Trust  to the heavens, the earth and the mountains, but they refused to undertake it, being afraid, and that the mandate is burdened by humans. Behold, the man is very unjust and very stupid, “(Surat al-Ahzab: 72)
14. The man obeyed his prejudice
“And most of them do not follow but conjecture only. Surely it is not the slightest inkling useful to reach the truth. Surely Allah is Aware of what they do. “(Surah Yunus 36)
15. Man LIKES daydream
“People were calling them hypocrites (the believers) and say:” Were we not with you? “They replied:” Yes, but ye led yourselves and wait (to our ruin) and you are in doubt and deceived by the empty dream that came to the ordinance of God: and you have been deceived for God by (Satan) is very imposter. “(Surat al-Hadid 72)
What should I deny, this is the actual reality of human frailty. In my prayers, I ask Allah to protect me from things that I do not know, protect me from my weakness due to my ignorance. Allah is the best protector. We as humans should never despair of Allah’s mercy. Allah really knows our weaknesses. Then, holding the rope stronger than Allah. God’s omniscience. Keep the way of Allah, always hoping and pleading to God. Life choices are not fixated on the sadness and happiness, but the choice between staying in the way of Allah or leave the path of Allah. God is giving forgiveness, grace beyond His anger.
So, whatever the risks that occur in each of our life choices, as long as we remain in the way of Allah. Then the blessings of life, God’s grace always accompany our steps. In Sha Allah.
