Struggle

Just take one step at a time,

No need to rush; everything will be just fine.

I know you’ve been trying,

I can see it behind your smile;

Pearly tears, purifying.

How long have you been crying?

How long have you been fleeing

From Allah, the Supreme Being?

You’ve stop asking from human beings, but you never should have stopped asking Him,

Because He won’t let you down like all the others did.

If Allah helps you, none can overcome you: If He forsakes you, who is there, after that, that can help you? In Allah, then, let believers put their trust. {Surah Ali Imran Verse 160}

Sometimes you look forward and all you can see is a frightening place,

The unforgiving chains of your past slow down your pace,

As you wake up every morning

And struggle to get through these difficult days.

Know that your past does not define you.

The future is not guaranteed.

One thing you can be sure of is that this very moment has been decreed.

You can change your life with a good thought, word or deed.

Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. {Surah Ar-Ra’d Verse 11}

I understand, you’re crumbling under the pressure and stress.

Sometimes you feel your whole life is a mess.

But if we never tasted the bitterness of failure, how could we truly appreciate the sweetness of success?

Verily, with every difficulty there is relief. {Surah Ash-Sharh Verse 6}

Allah didn’t ask us to be perfect,

He wants us to reflect and correct our ways

So that we might enter Paradise and be saved from the Blaze.

Allah wants to accept your repentance… {Surah An-Nisa Verse 27}

And no, Allah does not want to punish us.

He calls Himself the Most Merciful, the Most Forgiving, the One who responds to our prayers.

There is wisdom in His giving, withholding and delays.

If My servants ask you about Me, I am near. I respond to those who call Me, so let them respond to Me, and believe in Me, so that they may be guided. {Surah Al-Baqarah Verse 186}

Live, love, laugh and remember to pray.

When there is faith in your heart, Allah will help you through the rainy days.

When you feel lost, He will show you the way.

And when everyone else leaves, He will be the One who stays.

And rely upon the Ever-Living who does not die… {Surah Al-Furqan Verse 58}
