Here prophet Yaqub (AS) is advising His sons to enter the City through different gates to avoid calamity, although he also acknowledges if Allah has written calamity, nothing can stop it. He also says that all decisions rest with Allah and we should put our trust in Him.
“And he said, “O my sons, do not enter from one gate but enter from different gates; and I cannot avail you against [the decree of] Allah at all. The decision is only for Allah ; upon Him I have relied, and upon Him let those who would rely [indeed] rely.” Quran(Surah Yousaf, 67)
