DAY 21 : HAVE FAITH
وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُم بِشَيْءٍ مِّنَ الْخَوْفِ وَالْجُوعِ وَنَقْصٍ مِّنَ الْأَمْوَالِ وَالْأَنفُسِ وَالثَّمَرَاتِ ۗ وَبَشِّرِ الصَّابِرِينَ * الَّذِينَ إِذَا أَصَابَتْهُم مُّصِيبَةٌ قَالُوا إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ*
“And we will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and life and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient. Those who when disaster strikes them, say, “Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return.”
It is really easy to lose heart whenever something bad happens with us. It could be the loss of a loved one or financial crisis or familial trouble that bothers us nearly until we lose our mind. Stressing out wouldn’t bring us any solution nor would it ease the situation. Rather it would only worsen our health and perhaps even cost us a lot of more. It has been revealed to us that we’d all be facing trials and there’s no escape from it. In such times, believers find their strength by being patient and praying sincerely to Allah ﷻ. Such tests are rewards in disguise that are temporary and will save us from the torment of the hell fire. Therefore we mustn’t lose hope and have faith in Allah ﷻ that no matter how bad a circumstance seems like, there will always be a way out. May Allahﷻ make us from among those who fear him alone and are always moving forward in life with complete faith in His plan, اللهم آمين.
