Asalamualaykum, we pray you are all well.
Life can sometimes put you in very compromising situations or even worse might test every bit of you possible! During these difficult times it’s hard not to crack….but having good thoughts of Allah and knowing that He can bring you out if it can lighten the burden. Remember you are not alone. Alhamdulillah
Allah says in Surah Najm Verse 43
وَأَنَّهُ هُوَ أَضْحَكَ وَأَبْكَىٰ
And that it is He who makes [one] laugh and weep
Therefore seek Him and always busy yourself with His remembrance.
A beautiful reminder from a Sister
It’s easy for the believer to face highs and lows in terms of emaan, the road is never just a straight one, so from time to time you will undoubtedly waver and even at times fall.
Sometimes you might even hit an all time low, one which completely pushes you in the wrong direction due to the force of shaytaan. But the moment you feel this force, you need to muster enough strength to redirect yourself, and push yourself towards Allah.
Any form of emptiness or hollowness which you may be experiencing may be an indication towards the absence of Allah’s remembrance from your heart, and His mentioning from your tongue. Hence it’s imperative that you bring back His remembrance in to your life.
Imagine the abundant blessings which come with being remembered by Allah. Imagine the angels acknowledging you, specifically you.
Will this not be a natural cause of the descent of mercy from Allah? Will such mercy not fill the emptiness within the depth of your inner self?
The mercy of Allah includes safety, blessings and forgiveness. All of these combined and bestowed upon you can only mean ease and relief. Relief from any hardship, ease from anything which deters you from Allah.
So give all that you can in the remembrance of Allah, take hold of solitude and comfort yourself with His remembrance and He will comfort you with His mercy and companionship.
May Allah enable us to find ultimate peace in Him and His book, Al Quran Al Kareem. آمين.
