I asked ALLAH

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 to ALLAH 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 asked ALLAH to help me LOVE others,

As much as He loves me.
ALLAH said…

Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
May ALLAH Bless You,
