#FromTheMinaret . . . Pressure creates beautiful things.

The Sheikh asked me, “ What is the cheapest rock on this planet ? “
I replied, “ Coal “.

And what is the most costly one ? “
I replied, “Diamond “.
The Sheikh further asked, “ And what are both made of ? “
I answered, “ Carbon “.

He continued, “ That is right and you know what is the only difference between the two ? “ ” Pressure “.

Pressure creates beautiful things and when Allah (swt) tests you with different situations, it is because He wants to shape you into the most beautiful thing possible. “
