If you don’t have peace within yourself, marriage isn’t going to make you happy, a new job isn’t going to make you happy…even less problems won’t make you happy. life’s occurrences is not the issue-the issue is you finding peace from Allah, s.w.t.
Friends come and go, couples break up, and family sever their ties…but Allah is always with the believer. That is one relationship that will never let you down, and always give you the peace that you are looking for:)
“And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.”
-Qur’an, 2:186. Surat al-Baqara (the Heifer). Sahih International Translation.
No misfortune can happen on earth or in your souls but is recorded in a decree before We bring it into existence: That is truly easy for Allah:
In order that ye may not despair over matters that pass you by, nor exult over favours bestowed upon you. For Allah loveth not any vainglorious boaster,-
Such persons as are covetous and commend covetousness to men. And if any turn back (from Allah’s Way), verily Allah is Free of all Needs, Worthy of all Praise.
-Surat al-Hadid (the Iron). Qur’an, 57:22-24. Yusuf Ali translation
“there is no guidance except through the Qur’an…if they would only use their reason.
there is no guidance except through submission to God, O you who are thirsty for spiritual fulfillment.”

best madeeh ever, my fav; 🙂
~whenever you feel overwhelmed with distress or despair, or wonder where Allah is in the midst of your torment, remember this verse; “Or do ye think that ye shall enter the Garden (of bliss) without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? they encountered suffering and adversity, and were so shaken in spirit that even the Messenger and those of faith who were with him cried: “When will the help of Allah come?” Ah! Verily, the help of Allah is (always) near!” (Qur’an, 2:214).
