PRIDE IS ALWAYS STEPS AHEAD OF A FALL
You will be HUMBLED, you can be UPLIFTED, you may be GIVEN and it may be TAKEN AWAY from your hands. You may be ARROGANT as a result of you BEING GIVEN MUCH but remember, to him who much is given, MUCH IS equally EXPECTED. Failure means the LACK OF SUCCESS. But today as THINGS STAND with Uncle Sam, it just CONFIRMS that Failure happens when things DON’T ’t HAPPEN as per YOUR PLAN and even LADY LUCK DESERTS YOU. Often it’s HARD to FACE and DIFFICULT to OVERCOME. For those who know WILL TELL YOU that the ALMIGHTY GOD GIVES YOU but again is PRETTY CAUTIOUS of your ATTITUDE. A few YEARS OF POWER, if used well, can be ADDED for the BENEFIT of the MASSES or RETAKEN for the benefit of the same. And if you ask me, I will tell you that the ONE ABOVE, the MASTER of the day of JUDGMENT, the BEST in RECOMPENSE, the One who is SWIFT in COUNTING and SERVERE in PUNISHMENT is very SMART with what HE GIVES and what HE HOLDS. He is PENSIVE up there DISHING OUT POWER to whoever HE WILLS and TAKES IT from whoever HE PLEASES and all is JUSTICE. Humble yourself when you are given and SERVE THE POOR with what YOU ARE GIVEN. ARROGANCE because of what you are given MAY GIVE AWAY what you are given. GIVE and you will be GIVEN SOME MORE but WITHHOLD and it gonna be WITHHELD from you. Take it easy Uncle Sam.
قُلِ اللَّهُمَّ مَالِكَ الْمُلْكِ تُؤْتِي الْمُلْكَ مَن تَشَاءُ وَتَنزِعُ الْمُلْكَ مِمَّن تَشَاءُ وَتُعِزُّ مَن تَشَاءُ وَتُذِلُّ مَن تَشَاءُ بِيَدِكَ الْخَيْرُ إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
Say O Allah, Master of the Kingdom! Thou givest the kingdom to whomsoever Thou pleasest and takest away the kingdom from whomsoever Thou pleasest, and Thou exaltest whom Thou pleasest and abasest whom Thou pleasest in Thine hand is the good; surety, Thou hast power over all things.
