No mistake

In scientific terms, the chromosome disorder I have been bestowed with is a mistake — an error in cell division at conception. In these terms, certainly it is a deviation from the norm. But an anomaly? Hardly.

Blessed is He in whose hand is dominion, and He is over all things competent — who created death and life to test you as to which of you is best in deeds — and He is the exalted in might, forgiving.

Quran 67:1-2

In truth, there are no errors. All that exists and all that happens is by design. This difference was no mistake. Though at times I have been known to wonder, “Why me?” I know this was decreed for me. So too those trials and tests at its height.
