  Assalam alaikum,

  Contentment with the Decree of Allah (Ridaa ) is one of the acts of worship of the heart. The Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:--

    ''He has tasted the sweetness of faith: he who is content
      with Allah as his Lord, Islam as his religion and Muhammad
      as his Prophet''.

  We therefore need to know that God has portioned for us (for each one) our provision. As long as we work, we get what is written for us. In this regard, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

     ''Know that even if the whole of community were to gather
       together to benefit with something, they would not benefit
       you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded
       for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with
       something, they would not be able to harm you with anything
       except that which Allah has already recorded against you''.

   Simply possessing the knowledge should empower us, because we thereby know that everything that happens is by the permission of God. This should not prevent us from reflecting and trying to figure out how our actions played a role, but learning from an experience is part of contentment because you trust that God is teaching you a lesson through trial.
