About Struggling...

About Struggling...


A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a


small opening appeared. He sat and watched the


butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its


body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop


making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten


as far as it could, and it could go no further.


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!
