“Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.” – Mary Kay Ash
Just because someone thinks or says that you are not capable of something, it doesn’t make them right, no matter who they are.
Rather than attend to the insidious whispers of others, believe in Allah the Almighty, who created you as a powerful creature. Do you think Allah would create a weak being to act as His khalifah (agent) on earth?
“Behold, your Lord said to the angels: “I will create a khalifah (vicegerent) on earth.” They said: “Will You place therein one who will make mischief and shed blood? – while we do celebrate Your praises and glorify Your holy (name)?” He said: “I know what ye know not.” (Quran: 2:30)
What do you think that thing was that Allah knew that the angels did not know? Think about it.
Believe in the Messengers and Prophets (peace be upon them), and the Sahabah, all of whom did things that to our modern, “pragmatic” minds, seem impossible.
Believe in yourself, the voice of your conscience, and the urgings of your heart. When you dream of great things, don’t dismiss them as daydreams. They are the promptings of your soul, which knows better than your conscious mind what you can truly achieve.
Fly, bumble bee! Spread your wings and fly.
