I asked Allah to take away my habit.

Allah said, No. It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

I asked Allah to make my handicapped child whole.

Allah said, No. His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary

I asked Allah to grant me patience.

Allah said, No. Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is learned.

I asked Allah to give me happiness.

Allah said, No. I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you.

I asked Allah to spare me pain.

Allah said, No. Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.

I asked Allah to make my spirit grow.

Allah said, No. You must grow on your own! , but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked Allah for all things that I might enjoy life.

Allah said, No. I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.

I ask Allah to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.

Allah said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.


May Allah Bless You
