As salaam Aleakum Warahmotulahi Wabarkaatuhu,
REVIVE YOUR FAITH
During hardships and calamities, it is natural to get swept away by the affliction of the moment. During such trials of faith, unless we are careful, Satan can inject fear and plant doubts in our hearts and minds. Our beliefs in such vulnerable states may become overpowered by feelings of the moment resulting in the dwindling of our faith
Even when all doors appear to have been closed, as true believers we should never let feelings of helplessness succumb us. One of the best remedies for tough times is to be patient. A state of patience requires that we not resort to complaining, and remember Allah often. We take this lesson from the story of Prophet Yusuf (A.S.) who went through various ordeals in life only to be rewarded with a large kingdom in his later years (Q12: 90).
“Say: ‘Nothing shall ever happen to us except what Allah has ordained for us. He is our (Lord, Helper and Protector).’ And in Allah let the believers put their trust” (Q9: 51).
I ask Allah (SWT) help us all to be successful and ease all our affairs.
