Q: If something is meant to happen it will happen, even I believe in this not even a single leaf falls without Allah's permission. But my question is should we try getting what we need or should we just wait for that thing to come to us automatically.

A: You are already practising upon this in all your works. You will also strive and work to the extent of a morsel of food. You also raise the morsel with your hands to your mouth and chew it. You don't wait for the food to fly into your mouth and of its own to go down the throat.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
