Allah Cannot Be Caged
Some people think that if they are diligent in their prayer
and observant in their spiritual practice
that Allah will behave Himself
and do whatever they ask of Him.
Religion is a good and noble thing
and being observant is helpful indeed
but such people are mistaken if they think
that Allah is so easily caged or controlled.
Tragedy does not care how religious you are.
A sandstorm will blow over the Sultan's tent
just as quickly as the herdsman's.
If you want to be successful, work hard.
If you want to be loved, pray.
Trust Najat on this:
When you are loved,
hardship is so much easier to bear.
