Difficulty in all honesty is something that we all face at some point in life. It can leave you feeling hopeless, with no direction. As if you know where you want to go, but you can’t quite see how to get there, and you find yourself feeling lost. When you genuinely don’t know what to do, and you know you just need the picture clearing.
At that point in your life, there are things we need to remember. That Allah has a plan, you can try your best and you can work hard and pray, then after that, leave it in the hands of Allah. However difficult that may be, just trust him. It might take strength and tears to do so, but put your trust in him and he will Insha’Allah bring you toward whats right for you with happiness. Secondly, that whatever happens, in the end, to Allah we shall return. So maybe things don’t go the way we wanted in this life, but remember Allah is always with you, and the struggles of this world (however difficult they may be) are only temporary. Thirdly, the efforts you put in aren’t worthless. You tried, and maybe things didn’t go the way you had hoped, but you still developed in the process of trying. You would have learnt something from it, and trying your best is the most you could do, just trust Allah and his plan.
It is difficult picking yourself up and carrying on when you have nowhere to go, or you don’t have much direction, but know that Allah is with you, he’s close to you, and he won’t leave you in difficulty. Just remember him and he will remember you. Maybe its a test for you, and maybe he holds something better for you, just trust him. And when you’re finding it hard to do so, talk to him through prayer. Open up to your creator, and insha’Allah he will make you stronger. The picture may not be clear right now, but hold on to the rope of Allah, and he will suffice you Insha’Allah. Allah loves you, he won’t leave you alone. Dua is your biggest weapon, and sometimes that one extra dua you make can make all the difference, so never underestimate the power of dua. You’re talking to the one who has the power to change whats ahead of you. So speak to him, and confide in him, and trust him and his plans, because nobody knows you better than the one who created you.
May Allah guide us and grant us Jannah. May he forgive us for all the wrong we may have done. May he help us be successful in this life and the hereafter. May he save us from the fire and protect us from all evil. May he bring us closer to those we love, and strengthen our faith. Ameen.
