Control puts causality in your hands and because Allaah isn’t bound by causality you’re left to your own devices until such times where you recognize that you need grace in a specific circumstance. You don’t get to experience His generosity that blesses you with no particular reason from you. You don’t get to experience the groundbreaking form of divine creativity shaping the future before your eyes. You don’t get to experience serendipity.
Trying to protect yourself from discomfort also shields yourself from the ease and soothing comfort that comes with it.
