Trust in God must be genuine

SHAFAQNA – Luqman who was a scholar, had a master who ordered him to cultivate sesame in his land (master’s land) but Luqman cultivated barley instead. At the time of harvesting, the master asked Luqman why did you cultivate barley when I ordered you to cultivate sesame? Luqman replied: I was hoping God will cultivate sesame for you. The master said: Is such a thing possible? Luqman replied: I see you disobey God but you expect and hope paradise from the Supreme Being; I thought maybe that would happen. Then, the master cried, repented and freed Luqman [1].
