كثيررْ مآا نبحث عنْ [ السْسعادة ] .. وفيْ النهآاية
نْجدهآا كمآا وجدْ [ العجْووز ] نظآاررْته فووق أنفْه
"It is not true that if we had true faith we would not be sad. Prophets (as), and righteous people experienced a great deal of sadness. The Quran is full of stories in which the central theme is sadness. Sadness is a reality of life. The Quran is not there to eliminate sadness, but to navigate it. Sadness is one of the tests of life, just as happiness, and anger are tests." —Nouman Ali Khan
Subhan’Allāh this is such a beautiful and comforting ayah!
If you’re distressed and you feel like you want to go and scream because you can’t find any solution to your problem or you can’t bear and take it anymore then this is what you need!
For a moment stop the panic, stop the distress and just have a solemn moment with Him, let it be only you and Allaah Azza Wa Jall!
Indeed, Allāh Azza Wa Jall listens to our cries of agony and relieves our sufferings and He has indeed given us superiority over other creations on this earth, through our intelligence and soul.
But on this note will we go and run after inferior beings for comfort and forget Allāh Azza wa Jall holds every key of solution for our problems?
We should take a moment and reflect from this ayah.
Are we among those who sees Him only in times of distress or are we among those who consistently remember His Greatness and ask for His Mercy?
-Umm Umar Khaled
There are times where you catch yourself wanting to be alone, so you can have that one on one time with God. You are never really by yourself. He is always there, ready to hear you spill your heart and thoughts.
