If we give a child everything they ask for, they'd become spoiled and ungrateful. It's no different with Allāh and our duās.

One of the best tweet I read this week. Furthermore, it makes me think about my atheist acquaintance who argued that “God never answer my prayer hence it doesn’t exist” and “God lets war happens and children dying where is he hence he doesn’t exist“. I see those questions from different perspective:
- What if bad things happen as a way to teach humanity to put efforts on (and appreciate) good things?
- Will humanity value all the good things in life such as peace, tolerance, and other things if those can be achieved without effort?
A calm sea never made a skilled sailor.
I think1 the same thing happens to all of us.
No problem if you disagree. I don’t force people to believe what I believe 🙂 ↩
