Imam Ali Describing Fate

Imam Ali AS was asked: How did you recognize God?

He replied: By the cancellation of decisions and the failure of ambitions. So many ambitions I planned that were suspended, and so many decisions I made that were contradicted by fate. Then I realized that there is a more powerful will overriding my will.

Elm-ul-Yaghin, Vol. 1, P. 54

از امیرمومنان پرسیدند: پروردگار خود را به چه چیز شناختی؟

فرمود: به فسخ عزیمت و شکست همت. بسا همت ها گماشتم و میان من و آنها فاصله افتاد، و بسا تصمیم ها گرفتم و تقدیر با تصمیم من مخالفت ورزید. از اینجا دانستم که تدبیر به دست دیگری است.

علم الیقین: ج 1. ص 54
