When We’re Trying, But Still Not Getting What We Want

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

A delay in getting what [you] want while [you’re still] continuing to call [upon Allāh] and act upon the means [to achieving that] should mean a great many things to you, among which are:

  1. Getting what [you] want right now isn’t beneficial for you.
  2. You need to increase in calling [upon Allāh] and resorting to your Mawlá [supporter and manager of affairs].
  3. There may be something bad or evil in the thing you want that you don’t know about.
  4. What’s required of you is acting upon the means and causes, not achieving the effects.
