The real adab
The lowest of the levels of adab (respectful behavior) towards Allah (exalted be He) is for the human to accuse his own judgment of what is good for him instead of accusing Allah’s decrees [when seemingly bad things happen to them].
But the real adab is for one to not have any judgment of their own at all [regarding the things that happen to them], for there to be only Allah’s decrees, and to accept Allah’s decrees with obedience and submission, in a state of contentment, trust, and tranquility.
