Overwhelmed?

‎إِنَّمَا أَمْرُهُ إِذَا أَرَادَ شَيْئًا أَن يَقُولَ لَهُ كُن فَيَكُونُ

‎His command, when He wants anything, is to say to it: ‘Be,’ and it is.

‎— Surah Ya-Sin 36:82

‎Only He can help you overcome ALL that you’re overwhelmed with. Don’t stop praying and asking Him. He will make a way forward for you.

Inspired Action will Clear your Path

Change doesn’t come over night. It takes time. Don’t wait for things to fall into place in this life, get yourself busy by setting goals that extend far ahead of you into your afterlife.

Soon a mercy from Allah would come to you from where you didn’t expect, in times when you thought that success or an escape was impossible.

Release the need to control everything about your life and start with what you have, right now, wherever you are.

Raise your hands in prayers and ask Allah to give you the strength to continue this journey in life with His Mercy and Help.

Pray with hope and out of earnest faith. Know that He will respond to you. Because He will.

فَاسْتَجَابَ لَهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ أَنِّي لَا أُضِيعُ عَمَلَ عَامِلٍ مِّنكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنثَىٰ ۖ بَعْضُكُم مِّن بَعْضٍ

Their Lord responded to them: Never will I cause to be lost the deeds of any among you, whether male or female; you are of one another.

Surat Ali Imran 3:195

Don’t Suffer in Silence

Being patient does not mean suffering in silence. Being patient means that what ever happens, you do not lose the connection between you and Allah. He is your lifeline at those times when you don’t know who out of the people you can turn to. Allah will make a way out for you and this will be done when the time is right.

“For indeed, with hardship there’s ease. Indeed, with hardship there’s ease.” [al-Sharh: 5-6]

A Fresh Start Before Ramadan

Make Quran your constant companion; the more you sit with it, the more it honours you, gives you its secrets and elevates your status.

This world is designed to distract you and the Quran is designed to remind you.

Ibn al-Qayyim said :
“If your heart is thirsty, then do not quench it except with the Quran, and if your heart feels empty then do not fill it up except with the remembrance of Allah.”

Just remember there’s always barakah when you recite the Quran. Try to make an effort this season to build a connection with the Quran by reciting it whenever you can, even if it’s a line or two, read something everyday. This way, you’ll be able to do more during Ramadan.

كل الأشياء إن تركتها تذبل إلا القرآن إن تركته ذبلت
“Everything you neglect will deteriorate except the Quran: If you neglecting it, it is you who deteriorates.”

Until You Meet Him

Your struggle of perfecting and excelling in recitation of the Quran does not end with the end of your week, halaqah, or end of a course.

It will be your daily project that you work on perfecting, connecting with your Lord using His Speech until the day you meet Him.

Only Allah

When you’re troubled and don’t know how to act, where do you turn? To Allah for comfort.

If you can’t make a difficult decision, whom do you ask? Ask Allah to show you the right path.

When your life is a mess and you need to make changes, how do you start? With Allah’s help.

Who is there for you, in the bad times and the good, from the day you were born till the day you’ll leave this world? Only Allah.

Who knows your strengths and weaknesses and can offer you comfort, solace and counsel when you need support? The word of Allah.

Who will never let you down in the day or the night and raise you in ranks the more you reach out to Him instead of shunning and ignoring you? Only Allah.

Seek His Help, seek His guidance, and strive hard to please the One who will never ever abandon you, tire of you, or forget you.

{وَالَّذِينَ جَاهَدُوا فِينَا لَنَهْدِيَنَّهُمْ سُبُلَنَا ۚ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَمَعَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ}

And those who strive for Us- We will surely guide them to Our ways. And indeed, Allah is with the doers of good. [29:69]
