“The problem is not with my Lord.”

 3997237600_b755dda490  Ibn al-Qayyim related from al-Jariri:

 “I was told of a man from the Children of Israel who had a need that he wanted fulfilled by Allah.So, he engaged in constant worship and then asked Allah for his need. When he did not see that his need was fulfilled, he spent the night blaming himself, saying: “O self! What is wrong with you that is preventing your need from being fulfilled?”

And he spent the night sad and holding himself to account, saying: “By Allah, the problem is not with my Lord. Rather, the problem is with myself,” and he remained in such a state of holding himself responsible until his need was finally taken care of.”

[‘Ighathat al-Lahfan’; 1/77]
