Our Limited Conception of Divine Generosity


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

A man may pray to God for gold and always imagine a king coming to give it.  What he may never realise, as long as he fantasises, is that whatever that king gives is limited to the hand of the king.  If God so Willed, that man would find that even before the asking, God had Put him on a mountain of gold and the mine was always beneath him.  How foolish the nature of man.  That because he is limited, he limits God when God is beyond limits.  It is enough for the slave to ask without dictating terms.  Let God be God and let the slave know his limits.
