In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
my End round exam where just around the corner,
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!
