Because Allah says He is as you expect Him to be.
So expect Him to be doing things in your favor, even though the reality says otherwise. Once all of this is over, there is a whole world of Unseen out there waiting for you in the future, a world of Serendipities and Felicities, like a Midsummer Night’s Dream. For now, you don’t have to embrace this moment,just accept it. Because this moment, right now, is Something Borrowed.
Allow yourself to be crippled by your dreams and expectations of their happening. Because every sincere prayer is a serendipity in the making.
