Do not despair …


من حكم ابن عطاء السكندري

لا يَكُنْ تأَخُّرُ أَمَدِ العَطاءِ مَعَ الإلْحاحِ في الدُّعاءِ مُوْجِباً لِيأْسِكَ. فَهُوَ ضَمِنَ لَكَ الإِجابةَ فيما يَخْتارُهُ لَكَ لا فيما تَخْتارُهُ لِنَفْسِكَ. وَفي الوَقْتِ الَّذي يُريدُ لا فِي الوَقْتِ الَّذي تُرْيدُ

Wisdom of IBN ATA’ALLAH

Do not despair when in spite of intense supplication, there is a delay in receiving the expected gift. He has guaranteed that he would respond in what He chooses for you, and not what you choose for yourself, and at the time He chooses – not the time you desire.
