The decision of my lord is more beloved…


وقد روي أن سعد بن أبي وقاص كان يدعو للناس لمعرفتهم له بإجابة دعوته ، فقيل له : لو دعوت الله لبصرك ، وكان قد أضر ، فقال : قضاء الله أحب إلي من بصري

جامع العلوم و الحكم

It is narrated about sa’d ibn abi waqqas رضي الله عنه that his eyes had been afflicted by some harm. And he رضي الله عنه was well known for having his dua’s answered, so it was said to him:

‘Why don’t you make dua for your sight?’

Sa’d رضي الله عنه replied:

‘The decision of my Lord is more beloved to me than my sight’
