الحمد لله رب العالمين وصلى الله وسلم على رسول الله وعلى آله وأصحابه ومن اهتدى بهديه إلى يوم الدين
If the Prophets’ complained to Allah SWT alone every single time, what makes us think we can live without doing that? What makes us think we’re stronger than them? And what makes us think that if the best of people chose what they chose, we’ll find anything better in our personal choices?
Those who feel lonely in their sadness or happiness shouldn’t forget that they have a God who actually cares and believed enough in them by guiding them every time, all the time. Like worshipping Allah SWT is His Right…complaining to Allah SWT about our burdens or sharing happiness through shukr is His Right. Removing veils from one’s heart in front of humans may bring disgrace but in front of Allah SWT will bring honor. If you feel humiliated, lost, lonely…know that although it may seem people might’ve but Allah SWT hasn’t taken away your means to gain honor, guidance, and live a happy content fulfilled life. So if you have all the means, what is stopping you then?
Maybe the Shaytan?
Shaytan makes us feel powerless in our circumstances but the reality is that Shaytan is always going to sneak up as an advisor to us and insinuate us with a million lies and make us lose our focus on the real issue because he doesn’t want us to focus. He doesn’t want us to be strong! How can we be strong then? Where does our strength lie?
Our strength lies in paying heed to Allah SWT and not the liar – Shaytan. Our strength lies in not losing hope from the One who is the Source of all Good.
We will only change when we become strong.
A plant grows upward despite the gravity only when its roots are firm. When our hearts are firm which hope only good from Allah SWT, know that we will be firm too. Consequently, we’ll be firmer on our goals for Akhirah and the cloud of confusion will lift up inshaa’Allah.
Please let go and make way for the beautiful change for your Akhirah:
O you who have believed, fear Allah and believe in His Messenger; He will [then] give you a double portion of His mercy and make for you a light by which you will walk and forgive you; and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
[Surat’l Hadeed, 57:28]
All you have to do is have taqwa of Allah SWT in every way and His Mercy is yours, His Guidance is yours and His Forgiveness- which will bring you everything you wish for – all yours! SubhanAllah!
A food for thought for those who wish to better themselves in the upcoming Gregorian year.
And Allah SWT knows best.
