If every dua was fulfilled…

Bismillah, alhamdulillah wa salat wa salam ala rasulullah

I remember hearing one my elders speaking and he said some very beautiful words.

“Son, if Allah fulfilled all the duas of children, then there would be no school teachers left in the schools.”

His point was beautiful. It addressed so much so succinctly. There would be no school teachers left, because the children would’ve prayed for the teachers not to teach or to go away or whatever. I’ve often seem grown people act like children saying, “Why doesn’t Allah just answer my dua?” And yet, just like the school children they don’t know any better. They don’t see it’s for their benefit. They learn as they gain wisdom that only Allah knows best.

Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdika ash-haduana la illaha illa ant astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk, ameen.
