I asked...

I asked Allah why I wasn't rich.
H
e showed me a man with the wealth of a thousand kings,
Who was lonely, and had no one to share it with.

I asked Allah why I wasn't beautiful.
H
e showed me a woman more beautiful than any other,
Who was ugly because of her vanity?

I asked Allah why He'd allowed me to become old.
H
e showed me a boy of 16, who lay dead at the scene of a car accident.

I asked Allah why I didn't have a bigger house.
H
e showed me a family of six,
who had just been evicted from their tiny shack,
And were forced, to live on the street.

I asked Allah why I had to work.
H
e showed me a man, who couldn't find a decent job,
Because he'd never learned to read.

I asked Allah why I wasn't more popular.
H
e showed me a socialite with a thousand friends,
Who all left the moment the money and parties were no longer there.

I asked Allah why I wasn't smarter.
H
e showed me a natural born genius,
Serving life in prison for making ill use of his knowledge.

I asked Allah why He put up with a thankless sinner like me.
He showed me THE QURA'AN.

I knew then how much He loved me and the entire Ummah of Nabi (saw).

Remember us in your Dua'as

Now what if you're poor and still lonely with no one to share your measly pennies with?

i asked Allah why everyone seemed happy but me,
he showed me a couple married and with a family of three kids.
They had the life i yearned for but hopelessly hanging from a relationship thread, where no peace and no love dwelled!

Alhamdullilah!
I am much better off!

Allah knows best!

great post!
