I didn't fail grade wise, just to get into my firm (really high entry requirements), I ended up at a 'lower' uni through clearing and I plan on giving it a go

Was just wondering, in Islam, is it believed everything happens for a reason? Was this 'meant' to happen?

Maybe you didn't study hard enough.

I have no idea how religion comes into this. You just didn't do well enough at the end of the day. Maybe you should've put down a uni as your insurance that wasn't so "high" or "low" and you wouldn't have had to go through clearing

Islamically speaking God is either :

1. Punishing you for something

OR

2. Testing your faith: Whether you will be thankful for what you've got at least or whether you will lose faith with him completely for not giving you what you wanted.

Or even,

Who knows, this "lower" uni could/would have been better for you. The omnipotent God is the best planner.

Everything is destined. But you still have to strive and work hard. At times you can work as hard as you can but if it wasn't destined it won't happen. Everything happens for a reason.

my grades weren't bad by any means, and I did work hard, maybe it just wasn't meant to be

Could be.. life's a test. Exams are a really menial part of that test, regardless. Do you really value God enough to say thank god you at least got into university.

Have a read of this:

If you don't believe in your own ability to accomplish your goals, believe in Allah's ability to help you. And even if you believe in your own ability, don't forget that everything is in Allah's will. So at the office at the moment there are currently some college students doing internships and they mentioned to me that they are getting their A-Level results tomorrow. I thought back to the day I received my results and I found out what university I would go to. Not many of my friends even know this story but I was lined up to go to LSE for university. I had the offer but I was just waiting to find out if my grades were enough. My parents had put so so so much pressure on me to go to LSE. The day my results came out, I didn't get the grades. I felt so disheartened and disappointed in myself. And I think I lost a lot of my confidence in myself. But you know where I ended up going? I ended up going to Queen Mary University of London where a large portion of the university is Muslim. Alhamdulillah, in going to uni there, I met my first Muslim friends and subhan'Allah.. I became a Muslim! Although I didn't get to go to my first choice, I got more from going to Queen Mary than I ever could if I actually got the grades to go to LSE. Who knows, I may not have become a Muslim if I went to LSE. If I didn't become a Muslim, do you know how lost I would be right now? I was a lost soul who was very often unhappy. And alhamdulillah, look at the direction Islam has given me ☺️ Allah truly is the best of planners. Don't forget that if something is for you, it will never ever miss you. And if something isn't for you, it won't be yours. On that note, I pray Allah gives you all the best grades possible.

Maybe you spent too much time kissing the ground and not enough time studying?

And what of Elisabeth Fritzl? Was Allah helping her for 24 years?

:lol: no

You just didn't work hard enough, didn't get enough marks in your exams and therefore didn't get the grades you needed for your firm choice. This happens to a lot of people and simply, if you work hard enough you'll get what you deserve.

Everything was predestined for us before birth. That is why so many Muslims stay positive in times of hardship. Evey moment is the best moment because we could not be anywhere else at that moment in time.

U see in islam, its believed that life is a test.... we are created to worship Allaah alone... that's the purpose of life...... Of course we have free wills, so everyone have the right to believe any God they want, that is for mankind and Jinn... as Allaah said in the Qur'an "I did not create Jinn and mankind except for them to worship me alone"..... Now let's get to the point...
Workshipping Allaah isn't just about praying, making duas etc, it is also accepting the Qadr whether it's good and bad... if it's good.. we get very excited but if it's bad some of us get very upset.... forgetting that it might be a test... maybe if u pass that, u will get way better than you are hoping for...

I just finished my GCSE exams, I came here in 2013. I started school from year 6... before I came here I can't write or read because the education system in the part of the country where I was, was very poor. So, I'm stay learning.... for my GCSE, I revised just a little and I asked Allaah "if it's good for me in this life and the Hereafter, may he help me remember what I revised". Why? As someone who believe in God and knows that anything is possible for him, I believe that i and u could revise and revise buy still not pass.... because anything is possible to God... and He (God) might see how hard u worked, so He makes u fail just to test u or maybe you forgot about Him when u were revising.... so he makes u fail because of one or another...

I revised a little, but I asked for Allaah's help when I was revising and when I prayed..... and when I was entering the hall where we did our exams, I was asking for His help, say "Oh Allaah, help me and my muslim sisters and brothers with our exams if it's good for us in this life and the Hereafter" before I opened all of my exam papers I said something like that..... I ended up passing all of my 9 GCSE exams when my target grade was 2. And my parents and I didn't believe that I will pass especially for english but I did.... I really feel that it was my prayers that had been answered.... my grades aren't perfect but my target grade was grade 2 and I think it was only my teachers who actually believed that I will pass... Of course I knew anything is possible to Allaah that's why I never stopped asking for His help.... now.... I'm studying health and social care and I'm at the high group....

If you failed don't give up just see it as a test... i know it's hard to not feel upset.... I remember during Results day 2019, when I got my results in an envelope... I was afraid to open it... it was then when my english teacher came to me ..... she told me to open it.... I was afraid to disappoint her or any of my other teachers because they tried very hard... so I started to cry... although my english teacher was impressed... but I didn't see that as I was afraid... when I open it... then I felt better.... although I feel at that point I was grade hungry.... Have u ever felt that u just want to pass, and when you pass u wish that u got at least 1 grade higher than what u got?? That how I feel...


Thanks guys... I'm sorry for any error... I'm lazy to check it... so please forgive me...
