Hadrat Imâm-i Rabbânî says in the 59th letter of the third volume of his Maktûbât:

May Allahu teâlâ bless you with the great fortune of making progress in the way guided by Islam, the religion revealed through Muhammed ‘alaihis-salâm’, so that He attach you to Himself in all respects! Oh my valuable and discerning son! Everything that a person encounters daily comes into being as a result of the Will and Creation of Allâhu ta’âlâ. Therefore, we should adapt our wills to His Will! Whatsoever we undergo, whe should look on them all as things we have been looking forward to, and we should rejoice to attain them. This is the way a qul (a creature and bornslave of Allâhu ta’âlâ) should be. We should be so if we are quls! Not to be so means not to admit being a qul and to defy one’s Owner. Allâhu ta’âlâ declares as follows in a hadîth-i-qudsî: “If a person does not bow to My qadâ and qadar and is not patient about the disasters I send onto him, let him look for a Rabb other than Me for himself. Let him not stay on the earth as a qul of Mine!” Yes. Numbers of poor and destitute people and many another person under your protection have been living peacefully owing to the security and compassion you have been providing them with. Nothing in the name of sorrow has been familiar to them. Their real owner will continue protecting them. You will always be remembered for your goodnesses. May Allâhu ta’âlâ plentifully reward you for your goodnesses, both in this world and in the Hereafter! I extend my salâm.
