Every affair, every matter in your life is decreed by your Lord, Most Merciful.
Everything He does, everthing He allows, He knows the wisdom behind it.
Everything that He holds back, that He prevents, is an act of wisdom.
Certain things He will grant, things He knows are right for you, whereas others He won't grant so hastily because it may cause more harm than good.
So much time is spent worrying and fretting over what we want, yet little time is spent asking Allah for what is best for us.
The specific things which we ask Allah for today, how do we ascertain we will be content with them in ten years time? We don't.
Hence there is much wisdom in asking Allah not for what we want, but for what He considers best for us and our circumstances.
Do not be disheartened by a delayed response or a prayer not granted in the manner that you hope for.
Know that He is Most Wise and knows what will suffice you.
He knows what you are seeking before the desire enters your heart.
Our judgement is often clouded by emotions, whereas Allah's judgement is always just, forever fair.
Learn to trust His judgement.
If He knows any good in your heart, He will give you better than that which was taken from you.
