fae'ayna™: 05/09/17

Before you flip tables.

Yesterday was the perfect example of a bad day for me. It was one of those days where nothing just seems to work, you forget everything, you lose stuff, everything goes out of hand, and just as you thought the day couldn’t possibly get worse, something else comes up. Let’s not go into details, suffice it to say the day was just horrendous.
I did, however try my best to stay positive. Told my friend Aisyah who was with me that day everything that happened since morning. After hearing me rant about my miserable Sunday, she suddenly lit up- which definitely was a strange reflex. Uhm, hello, why are you happy over my suffering? Her answer was life-changing. She answered, “because your suffering means better things are coming!!!”
That positivity was so admirable MashaAllah. Her words instantly made me feel better. It was somewhat magical because I could have sworn I felt like trash two seconds before. The amount of faith she has for God is so profound. Another lesson I learnt that day was, sometimes we focus too much on the problem, we become somewhat blind towards the blessings existing concurrently. Allah says in the Quran, with hardship comes ease. WITH and not AFTER. SubhanAllah, Aisyah was definitely a blessing. She was simply heaven-sent. I’m so fortunate to have such optimistic friends who knows just the right things to say when I’m at my lowest.
When He removes something in your possession it is only in order to empty your hands for an even greater gift. - Ibn Qayyim
So if you’re having one of those days, remember, BETTER THINGS ARE COMING!

Love, light and laughter,

“اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي”
Oh Allah, You are the One who pardons, You love to pardon, so pardon me.
Do not let grief overburden you. This life is full of tests. And you will make mistakes. You will fall. You will feel empty. You will question everything. You will question yourself. But He lets you experience all these things, so that you perhaps you will reflect. Perhaps you might stop hurting yourself. Perhaps you will come back to His path. Because you belong to Him.
It is when we are hungry that we seek food. It is when we are thirsty that we seek water. It is when we are in the heat that we seek the shade. It is when we are in the cold that we seek warmth. It is when we are darkness that we are drawn to the light. So come back. Come back dear soul. Do not be sad. Allah is always near.
