I want things, you want things, we all want things

تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي إِن شَاءَ جَعَلَ لَكَ خَيْرًا مِّن ذَ‌ٰلِكَ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ وَيَجْعَل لَّكَ قُصُورًا

(Blessed is He who, if that were His will, could give thee better (things) than those,- Gardens beneath which rivers flow; and He could give thee palaces (secure to dwell in).)

---> In other words, Allah SWT did not will that he should have those things (in this life). And Allah SWT has a wisdom for everything! So think about yourself (and myself) for a minute: If you want something, and you do not have it, know that if Allah SWT had willed it, you would have had it! It is easy for Allah SWT to give you this object of desire, and yet for some reason, He has not willed you to have it at this moment. For a believer, Allah SWT only chooses what is best, so you must ask yourself, why does Allah SWT not give me this thing that I want? This life is a test - so, what does Allah SWT want from me? Is it a test of patience? Is it a test of faith to see if I believe that He alone can provide me with it? Is it perhaps not a good thing for me to have? Do not be fooled by the shaytaan or your desires and blinded from the significance of such events in your life! Do you want wealth but do not have it? Do you want knowledge but cannot reach it? Stop and reflect... You want these things, but the more important question to ask is, what does Allah SWT want.. ? (Think of what He wants, and He will shower you with blessings! Think only of what you want, and you will still only get what He wants you to have..)
