When life happens, sometimes it hurt you. The journey you took is longer than everyone else around you. Everyone else seems happier and gets everything that they ever wanted. But you are all alone facing so many difficulties that you don’t think you can bear it anymore. All you can think of is, to give up on yourself and even to lose hope in Allah. Because after all this while, you are tired of waiting for the miracle that everyone keep on telling you about. And you can’t even see the solution to your difficulties. You think that there is no way out anymore and you are worthless.
And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient,(2:155)
In the quran Allah promises us that He is going to test us. But for all those who being tested, and if they are able to be patient, Allah specifically congratulate them.
Who, when disaster strikes them, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return."(2:156)
If we lose something or we don’t get what we wanted, we have to realize that nothing in this world belongs to us. NOTHING. Even our ability to breathe belongs to Allah.We are capable of nothing without Him.
Those are the ones upon whom are blessings from their Lord and mercy. And it is those who are the [rightly] guided. (2:157)
Maybe there will be no solution to your problem or maybe Allah only want you to wait a little longer. And the ultimate goal of all the difficulties that you are facing now is to teach you to be Sabr, so you could have patience.
We think that we deserve to get everything in this dunya after facing so much difficulties. We think that we deserve a job, a life partner, a good family, and lots of money. But Allah's real intention for all those difficulties is for you to learn about patience.
Everything in this life is a gift, a gift from Allah.
And be patient, [O Muhammad], and your patience is not but through Allah. (16:127)
Yes, it’s true that we are weak. We want to cry, we want to give up. Because we are simply humans. But then, we can always ask of Allah to give us strength because He is Al-Qowiy, We can always ask Allah to help us be patient with a beautiful patience because He is Al-Soburr. As we are able to be patient, we deserve to be commended by Allah.
If we ever give up, make a lot of istighfar and He always ready to forgive us because He is Al-Ghaffur Ar-Rahim. Remember that Allah always love you and He will never abandon you.
