Hardships

“If He opens a door for you, thereby making Himself known, pay no heed if your deeds do no measure up to this. For, in truth, He has not opened it for you but out of a desire to make Himself known to you. Do you not know that He is the one who presented the knowledge of Himself to you, whereas you are the one who presented Him with deeds? What a difference between what He brings to you and what you present to Him” – Imam Ibn Ata’illah Al Ijandari
