As He wills

Do not despair when in spite of intense supplication,
there is a delay in receiving the expected gift.
He has guaranteed that he will 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.


Ibn Ata’Allah

  1. that’s the spirit! ‘atta girl!

    though in truth, it takes much courage to muster the patience to remind yourself this constantly, and not forget and become prey to depression. we’ll get there in the end, inshaAllah 🙂

  2. inshallah

  3. Or maybe the Inviticus approach is more true…

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.
