    A writer narrated this story:)

    A Muslim went to a certain country as a refugee and he implored the authorities there to grant him citizenship. All doors were shut before him.

    Despite his many efforts at importuning others, all of his contacts failed. One day he met a righteous scholar, and he gave him an account of his predicament.

    The scholar said to him, `Supplicate to your Lord, for He is the One who makes things easy.’ The meaning of this advice is found in the hadith:

    “If you ask, then ask Allah; and if you seek help, seek help from Allah. And know that if the nation were to gather together in order to give you some benefit, they would not bring you any benefit, except with what Allah has written for you.”

    The refugee later related,
    “By Allah, I stopped going to people for help or for intercession, and instead, I began praying to Allah in the last third of the night just as the scholar had told me to do. Just before the break of dawn, I would call to Allah and invoke Him for relief.

    Only a few days passed, after which, I submitted an application for citizenship without using any person of position to intercede for me. A few days passed and then suddenly, to my astonishment, I was called to pick up my citizenship request papers. They were stamped with ‘Approved.’ :)
