After listening to this song from the movie Rockstar, I was just wondering as to what these words might mean. Well, these words are taken from Quran, The Holy Book for Muslims and the meaning is: “God Said Be and It Became“. Very interesting, right!
Sometimes I wonder whether the becoming was in the hands of the individual or was it because God had inscripted the things for him/her, which led to him/her being what he/she is today. Some people believe that they can make their own destinies with the kind of efforts they do in their lifetime and cite examples like Abdul Kalam Azad who came from a below average background and went on to become the President of India, while on the other hand some believe that no matter how much efforts they put, if God has written something, it is bound to happen and these people explain this phenomenon citing examples of Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli.
Both these talents were pipped to be the future of Indian Cricket, in fact Vinod Kambli was considered better than Tendulakar during their early days. But what resulted, everyone knows. Those who are strong believer in destiny would want to explain this by saying that it was inscripted for Tendulkar that he would go on to become one of the Greats.
Whatever might be the explanation, it is true that nothing can be achieved without hard work, dedication and commitment. So, the most important thing for an individual is to keep striving towards his/her goal, whatever it might be and then leave rest to God. It is said that God helps those who help themselves. Thus, it is extremely important to keep trying in life.
As Martina McBridehas has summed all these aspects including destiny and hard work in this quote beautifully: “A big part of who I am is just the way I was raised. Nobody is better than anyone else, and if you really work hard, you might get lucky and get what you want.”
