i think it is ok.
because , i think, there are lots of almost similar and different, of different level of difference, copies of our world. it is named multiverse theory.
and, if so, what happens when you make dua and it allah helps you? you get/walk into the future branch of your world which you wanted. and if you ask for past and allah helps you, it also can be similar way, if you are now watching the world and this your local part of the world, felt by you, is similar in many-many different versions of world, and allah can make it so that you will get into one of them which is good. and in both cases, whether it is past or future, the bad branches/threads of world also exist.
but since you do not know in which world you are, you should plan your future behavior for several possible versions (of the what happened). and if you can know out more clearly what happened, then you can plan/behave for that case. (and your copies in other "parallel" worlds, who know out more clearly that their past is other, should behave appropriately, but that should not bother the you in this your world any more).
before effect of something happened in past reaches you, it is like future for you. if you have signs of that event which are not strong, apparent, they can still appear as wrong and be reinterpreted.
