Impatient Prayer

Student of Al Huda
Our Lord, and send among them a messenger from themselves who will recite to them Your verses and teach them the Book and wisdom and purify them. Indeed, You are the Exalted in Might, the Wise.” [Al Baqarah:130]
 What really softened my heart this class was the fact that Ibrahim (as) made this dua to Allah and asked for someone who would teach the people. This prayer was answered two and a half thousand years later. I could not believe this!
  We are so impatient when we call upon Allah, we expect that once we stand up from prayer what we asked for will be right before us or in our two hands yet Ibrahim (as) was a prophet and his prayer was answered after this long. The lesson I took from this verse is that we should be patient just as Ibrahim (as) was and due to his patience he was given great blessings. The prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was sent as an answer to his prayers and he was given pious offspring. We should learn to be patient as good comes to those who are humble and patient.
