I asked Allah for…

I asked Allah SWT for strength,
And Allah SWT gave me difficulties to make me strong.

I asked Allah SWT for wisdom,
And Allah SWT gave me problems to solve.

I asked Allah SWT for prosperity,
And Allah SWT gave me brain and brawn to work.

I asked Allah SWT for courage,
And Allah SWT gave me danger to overcome.

I asked Allah SWT for love,
And Allah SWT gave me troubled people to help.

I asked Allah SWT for favours,
And Allah SWT gave me opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted,
But I received everything I needed!
