My dear friend Uzma Awan wrote this while listening to Prophet Dawud’s story in Surah Saad (38:21-25):
“Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala does not answer our prayers because He wants to see us on the prayer mat more often. Had He answered them right away, would we lower ourselves in sujood? Shed a tear? Turn to Him? Talk to Him?
Imagine a person whose company you enjoy the most. When they come you don’t want them to leave. You abandon what you are doing and are attentive to them. You rejoice when they talk and you want to hear them continue talking just to be with them. The longer this meeting lasts, the more delighted you feel.
Same goes with Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala, our du’as and those heartfelt talks that we make with Him in secret He loves us hence He wants to see us and hear from us more often.
There is always a blessing in disguise. What worldly blessing could be more valuable than being in the Company of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala?
Look at your du’as and trials from a different perspective and be humbled in gratitude that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala chose YOU to be with Him. Not many people are granted this Honorable Company.” ♡
