I learned something in a very concrete way yesterday. We had bought a set of 2 beds and it seems they were made of very weak material; so they broke. There was a serious problem in their foundation, but it took a break to find it. And as a result of the break, the man who fixed them, put a solid wood foundation that is now almost unbreakable. This also happens in our lives. We are full of inner deficiencies and weak foundations. But how are they exposed? They are exposed through a break. Through certain breaks, we become aware of particular deficiencies in our inner foundation. We become aware of deficiencies that we would otherwise not be able to see. And as a result of the break, the heart (and the bed) can be rebuilt stronger. Allahu akbar!
