Success is dependent upon patience
We live in a world where we want things immediately. But, all around us, Allah teaches us a profound lesson, again and again.
Everything is a process and takes time. Allah could have made a baby in a moment, but He designed it to take 9 months. A seed could have become a massive Oak in a day, but He designed it to take hundreds of years. The Prophet’s mission could have been completed in a year or two. But, God designed it to take twenty three.
You will not always see the fruits of your labor right away. Maybe not even in your lifetime. Don’t get discouraged. All things take time. And to all things is a process you cannot speed up. Therefore, success is dependent upon patience.
“O you who have believed, persevere and endure and remain stationed and fear Allah that you may be successful”. [3:200]
