God is a wise provider, he doesnt create more cold than a cover can protect against

(Al-Ahram)
(Al-Ahram)

ربك رب العطا يدى البرد على قد الغطا 

Rabbakrab el ata, yeddi el bard ala qad el ghata

Translation:God is a wise provider, he doesnt create more cold than a cover can protect against 

 

Meaning: God has a plan, and his plan is to give you just as much hardship as you are capable of handling. One of a genre of sayings that were designed to reassure people, before modern therapy came into the scene, the proverb tells the listener that he or she will be able to cope somehow: You may not think that you have enough blankets at home, but you’ll do just fine. God is watching over you, and this too shall pass.
