You are not aware of the consequences that would result (if you were granted what you desire) because what you seek might be to your detriment.

(O soul) be conscious that your Master is more aware about your well-being than you are.

~Ibn Al-Jawzee

It may be that you dislike something, though it is good for you. And it may be that you love something, though it is bad for you. And God knows, and you do not know

~Surah Al-Baqarah v 216

Whether you are fast or slow, eventually you will find what you are seeking.
Always devote yourself whole heartedly to your search.
Even though you may limp or be bent double, do not abandon your search,
but drag yourself towards it.

~ Rumi

When He gives, He shows you His kindness;
when He deprives, He shows you His power;
and in all that, He is making Himself known
to you and coming to you with His gentleness.

~Ibn Ata’Allah
