Through your life your faith will go from points of being so high that you’re constantly praying, to points of being so low that you sometimes forget to pray. Its normal for your levels of faith to fluctuate because it can be difficult to stay strong in faith, especially when we live in a world where there are many distractions diverting us from the right path. We’re questioned by science and social media constantly on why we believe in a god we’ve never seen, or why we believe in a religion spread by an illiterate man in the middle of a dessert. But even though the prophet (pbuh) couldn’t read or write, he could deliver an entire religion and he could talk in front of hundreds of people because Allah gave him strength and faith to do so. And there came a time when the prophet didn’t receive a revelation for some time, and naturally, he became worried. Then Allah said ‘your lord has not forsaken you’.
Subhanallah. So Allah tells us, he has not left us. Sometimes you may feel your faith isn’t as high as the faith of the famous scholars,or as high as you would like it to be, but it doesn’t mean you can’t be close to Allah. Of course we should all strive to be the closest to him that we can be, but know that its normal for your faith to fluctuate, and you shouldn’t become discouraged by it. Allah tells us he is closer to us than our jugular vein, so don’t lose hope because you might be at a low point. Things happen in life that will make you and break you, and thats okay, but through it all keep your salah and prayers in tact, and keep yourself remembering Allah and Insha’Allah you won’t feel dissatisfied. Remember Allah is with you wherever you are, you just need to find him.
May Allah guide us and grant us Jannah. May he forgive us and help us in all we do. May he send his mercy upon us because we were made weak. May he guide us and protect us along the straight path and grant us patience. May he bring ease to any hardship we may be facing, and may he keep the muslim ummah strong. Ameen.
