Have faith

So this is my first post of 2012. 09 January 2012- a kind of, significant date for me. I'm just hoping everything turns up well. Anyway, today's the last day of our exam review week, technically, as there're still a few papers that I didn't get. Last semester exam surely indicates my poor performances in studies especially in certain subjects. Most of my friends ' results also were not so good as compared to the previous sem exam. It's understandable that semester 3 was really packed and hectic. Still, what I worried the most is that I did study for this 'one' subject but still fail to get seven. Frustrated! =.=

On a different note, I have something to share with my fellow readers.

If ye help not (your leader-prophet Muhammad saw), (it is no matter): for Allah did indeed help him, when the Unbelievers drove him out: he had no more than one companion; they two were in the cave, and he said to his companion, "Have no fear, for Allah is with us": then Allah sent down His peace upon him, and strengthened him with forces which ye saw not, and humbled to the depths the word of the Unbelievers. But the word of Allah is exalted to the heights: for Allah is Exalted in might, Wise.  (9:40) 

I'm pretty sure that this  most of us know this hijra story as this's part of Islamic studies syllabus since kindergarten. From those verse, we can see on how our prophet and Abu Bakr put their fully believe, faith and confidence on Allah when mushrikeen sought after them. At the end, Allah sent His  help to both of them and they saved. 

All  this while, I do think that believe, faith and confidence are the same thing. But I was completely wrong.
A friend of mine shared an analogy to show the differences between these words.

Say you're at shooting target booth in a fun fair and you saw someone, who was successfully shooting a apple 7 times without even a miss. You would surely impressed of the ability of that person and regard her/him as a good shooter. But are you confidence enough to offer yourself by putting the apple on your head, so that the so called good shooter can test his skill again. (and by using the real pistol) I believe not all of us have courage to do this. Not even me! To make it more fascinating, imagine yourself in medieval time, where you were tied on a wheel and spun around. (imagine a dagger instead of pistol as i don't think there's pistol at that time)

I hope at this point all of you get my message. Try relate this analogy to Allah. We know that He's capable of doing anything He want but at a point we feel it's kind impossible for things to happen. Miracle do happen. and that's Allah  will.

So, do believe, have faith and confidence on Him.
