"The reward of every deed is known, except for the reward of patience, which will be like heavy rain."
The Prophet (saw) was once asked what faith was, to which he replied, ‘Patience.’
[Ibid. no. 47]
"And unto everyone who is conscious of God, He always grants a way out, and provides for them from an unexpected source; and for everyone who places his trust in God, He alone is enough. Verily, God always attains to His purpose: and indeed, unto everything has God appointed its term and measure."
"If you take a child and you throw the child up, there’s a point where they go into this state of complete panic. And then when they come back to your arms they’re laughing. That is Dunya. I guarantee you. That moment, that is your life. You came from God and you’re going back to God. And there’s just a moment where you’re in a complete state of panic. But just relax - you’re in good hands."
— Hamza Yusuf (via hera7
Do not doubt God when you pray to Him, God has no limits.
If you can place a limitation on God, then He is no longer God; if God is beyond limits, then nothing is beyond His reach.
The limitation lies within us.
Would we hurt others if our (particular) prayer was answered? Aren’t our trials a means towards appreciating our joys? But, most importantly, do we ever stop to think: “can I handle the responsibility of what I’m praying for?”
He knows what is in every heart.
Surat Al-Mulk 67:13
To have faith in God is to have faith in His timing. It is to have faith in His decree, to have faith in His wisdom, to have faith in the justice of His court.
"Forgive People. Gulp down your Anger. Break down in front of Allah."
