Allah’s gifts are given to all men – to some in a great degree than to others. But it is done according to His wise Plan, for His will is just and looks to the good of all creations.
No one should therefore be puffed up in prosperity or cast down in adversity. Prosperity does not necessarily mean merit on man’s part, nor adversity the reverse. Thinking men bear in mind the large Plan – which is visible in all Allah’s Signs.
