Virtues of Patience!!!

I have read this story on a page, thought to share with all.

A married lady was expecting a birthday gift from her husband. For many months she had admired a beautiful diamond ring in a showroom, and knowing her husband could afford it, she told him that was all she wanted. As her birthday approached, this lady awaited signs that her husband had purchased the diamond ring.

Finally, on the morning of her birthday, her husband called her into his
study. Her husband told her how proud he was to have such a good wife and told her how much he loved her. He handed her a beautifully wrapped gift box.

Curious,the wife opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Quran, with the wife’s name embossed in gold. Angrily, she raised her voice to her husband and said, ‘With all your money you give me a Quran?!’ And stormed out of the house, leaving her husband.

Many years passed and the lady was very successful in business. She managed to settle for a more beautiful house and a wonderful family, but realized her ex-husband was very old, and thought perhaps she should go to visit him. She had not seen him for many years.

Before she could make arrangements, she received a telegram telling her that her ex-husband had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to her. She needed to come back immediately and take care of things. When she arrived at her ex-husband’s house, sudden sadness and regret filled her heart.

She began to search through her ex-husband’s important papers and saw the still new Quran, just as she had left it years before. With tears, she opened the Quran and began to turn the pages. As she read the words, a tiny package dropped from the back of the Quran. It had a diamond ring in it, with her name engraved on it– the same diamond ring which she had wanted from the showroom. On the tag was the date of her birth and the words, ‘LOVE YOU ALWAYS’.

How many times do we miss Allah’s blessings, because they are not packaged as we expected?
