    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...
