When I asked Allah

I asked for strength, and Allah gave me difficulties to make me strong | I asked for favors, and Allah gave me problems to solve | I asked for prosperity, and Allah gave me the energy and mind to work | I asked for the steadfastness of heart, and Allah gave me dangers to overcome | I asked for love, and Allah gave me troubled people to help | I asked for goodness, and Allah gave me opportunities to do good | I didn’t receive any of what I asked for, but I received everything I needed | And my prayers were answered!
