One Wish Unfulfilled

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

“For th sake of one wish yet unfulfilled,
He thought but little of everything else that Heaven had Granted him.
That is how human beings are made.
If prayers remain unanswered,
Do we ever reflect that it may be for our good?
We feel sure that we know our needs,
Yet the future is Veiled from our eyes.
The thread of our fate ends outside the visible world,
And what today we mistake for a padlock keeping us out,
We may tomorrow find to be a key that lets us in.”

Shaykh Nizhami Khanjawi (q.s.)
