    Beautiful Words of Reminder


    In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious Most Merciful
    Here's something that might help you understand
    why difficult things happens to us sometimes...

    A man found a cocoon of a butterfly.
    One day small opening appeared.
    He sat and watched the butterfly for several
    hours as it struggled to force its body through
    that little hole.

    Then it seemed to stop making any progress.
    It appeared as if it had gotten as far as
    it could, and it could go no further.

    So the man decided to help the butterfly.
    He took a pair of scissors and snipped off
    the remaining bit of the cocoon.
    The butterfly then emerged easily.
    But it had a swollen body and small,
    shriveled wings.

    The man continued to watch the butterfly
    because he expected that, at any moment,
    the wings would enlarge and expand to be able
    to support the body, which would contract in time.

    Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent
    the rest of its life crawling around
    with a swollen body and shriveled wings.
    It never was able to fly.
    What the man, in his kindness and haste,
    did not understand was that the restricting
    cocoon and the struggle required for the
    butterfly to get through the tiny opening
    were Allah's way of forcing fluid from the
    body of the butterfly into its wings so that
    it would be ready for flight once it achieved
    its freedom from the cocoon.

    Sometimes struggles are exactly what
    we need in our lives. If Allah allowed us to go
    through our lives without any obstacles,
    it would cripple us.

    We would not be as strong as what we
    could have been. We could never "fly"!

    I asked for Strength.........
    And Allah gave me Difficulties to make me strong.

    I asked for Wisdom.........
    And Allah gave me Problems to solve.

    I asked for Prosperity.........
    And Allah gave me Brain and Brawn to work.

    I asked for Courage.........
    And Allah gave me Danger to overcome.

    I asked for Love..........
    And Allah gave me Troubled people to help.

    I asked for Favours.........
    And Allah gave me Opportunities.

    I received nothing I wanted
    I received everything I needed!

    "So blessed be Allah, the best of creators!"
    Sura The Believer (23) verse 14

    Send this around to other muslims so that we
    understand ALLAH better.

    "I put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving creature, but He has a grasp of its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on the straight path. (The truth)"

    "...Indeed my prayer, my sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allaah, the Lord of the worlds" (6:162)

    This is soooo true. goes without saying...but Allah is great!!


      Very true! Thank you for sharing Saadia.
