“So be thou patient. Surely, the promise of Allah is true; and let not those who have no certainty of faith make light of thee.”
~Al – Rum 30:61
Lest you will be initiated to doubtfulness and uncertainty, if you won’t trust Allah. Allah’s promise never fails, be hopeful when you are making your callings, never get tired and breed doubt in your heart, not to jeopardise the whole favours He has designed for you.
What you need is patience, you can’t earn it all in a single day. Allah bestows you your needs as you need them. He will surely not deprive you of your rights and the fulfilment of His promises in your life. Though best known to Him, but your constant prayer with patience can earn you a lot.
It might be too early for you to loose hope now, to let not those who have no certainty of faith make light(laugh at you, win you from righteousness) of thee. Don’t fall prey to their evil thoughts. You will be initiated, that you will loose God’s trust in no time.
Sometimes pain and affliction are blessings. Though, they are to be detested by man but they are beneficial in one sense to the one feeling the pain. Such one is conferred with the opportunity to remember and supplicate to Allah unlike when he is living in comfort and repose that he forgets the supremacy of Allah.
Pains and suffering you are going through should elevate you in spiritual status. The companions of the Holy Prophet (saw) witness pains in dimensions – hunger, poverty, rejection, abandonment, torture and even death. Yet, they were models in Islam when it comes to purity, nobleness and sacrifice. Despite their sufferings and pains, they still emerged the truth chosen ones and elites of mankind because they never became sick in their prayers. Know that your pains now will earn you a future. May Allah bless us and build us our desired future – aamin.
