We asked Allaah to surround us with righteous people, and all the people we thought were our friends started disappearing.
We asked Allaah for love of the Aakhirah, and all our love for this world started disappearing.
We asked Allaah for Sabr [patience] and He placed difficulty in our lives.
We asked Allaah for modesty and He place the love of hijab/niqab/lowering the gaze in our lives.
You ask and you get.
Never in the form we want, but in the form we need.
In the form that is best for us, and in the form that will eventually make us out to become the best of people.
