Friends, whatever situation we find ourselves in right now, take comfort that we are exactly where Allah wants us to be right now. If you are in an extremely difficult situation, our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said “know that what does not afflict you could never have afflicted you; and what afflicts you would never have missed you. And realize that victory is with patience, relief is with stress, and indeed with difficulty comes ease.” [Nawawi’s 40 Hadith]

There is always a bigger picture, a larger context that we are unable to perceive with our short-sightedness. Allah Most High is fully aware of how things unfold in the long run, and we must place our trust in Him, fully realizing that there is wisdom in His decisions.

"Ya Allah, may You make it easy for all of us to trust in Your Qadr, Amin."
