Ups and Downs
Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi ta'ala wabarakaatuhu,
Life is a huge puzzle or as some say it's like a roller coaster. You never know what will happen next, but I think that's the beauty of life. Our complete trust in ALLAH swt that no matter what side of the road we are on, we know this is what ALLAH swt has chosen for us and we have no complains. There will be ups and downs, you may be on cloud seven one day and the next on the floor, but you always have to remember that ALLAH swt is with you. This is what he has written for you, and he is the best of planners. Just like a teacher does not tell you the wisdom behind every one of her decisions, and you have no choice but to accept and obey, everything that happens is for a reason and wisdom, which we are not aware of. After all, this life is a test, it was never for enjoyment. Its just a matter of time before this test will end and the patient will be rewarded with that which no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and that which no mind has imagined. We are the servants of ALLAH swt, our purpose in this life is to please him, worship him, and remember him at all times; in grief and happiness. Always remember that ALLAH swt is with you, hes so close you cant even imagine. If you become his, he shall make everything yours.
"احفظ الله يحفظك، احفظ الله تجده تجاهك"
How beautiful this hadith is. Protect ALLAH swt (protect his orders by obeying them), he shall protect you. Protect ALLAH swt, you shall find him infront of you.
Never think you are alone, every roller coaster has an end, every puzzle can be solves, no situation ever remains the same, time always changes, if one day is like this, the next will be different. Always keep your hopes high and have faith in him. He is with you, he is watching, he cares, he loves you.
If you look at a mother, how many a times does she shower her baby even though he cries and screams...does she stop showering him? Does she let him smell and be covered in dirt?
We too are covered in the filth of sins, we are drowning from head to toe in disobedience..look how merciful our rabb is, he doesnt throw us in the hell fire, he purifies us, cleanses us, and brightens us.
Its just about your prospective. Keep a positive attitude, then you yourself will see the bright side of everything.
