Getting rid of sadness… Juz-10

The 10th Juz starts with the mention of the battle of Badr in which the Muslims came out with a great victory… despite being far less in number and power… Now this was not a planned event on the part of the believers… rather Allah Himself created a situation that they had to come face to face with the enemy…

Sometimes it happens in our life too that we have to come across situations that seem literally impossible to endure… but Allah makes us go through those tests to show us that He can give us victory over the most difficult obstacles…

So whenever you have to deal with things against your choice then have faith in Allah that this test is for your own good even though it does not appear to have any benefit at the moment… but you never know how much Allah is going to bless you through it… so keep your faith and do your best!!

The key to success lies in the 45th and 46th ayah of surah al-anfaal in which Allah tells us that when you come across some adversity then remain steadfast and remember Allah a lot so you will become successful…

Remembering Allah is so important because this will keep your focus on your true goal… thus you will remain free from pride and other distractions…

The other thing which Allah emphasized for success is to have unity and brotherhood… the love for your fellow beings is something that cannot be bought even if you pay the entire treasures of the earth… still you cannot have it unless Allah gives it to you from his own bounty… So we should take care of this blessing and be very careful not to spoil the love which Allah put in our hearts for one another…

And then we must also remember that the biggest blessing of all is to love Allah above every other thing… in fact it is so important that it is a condition for true faith… so if we want to be counted as true believers then we must ensure that nothing should come above Allah… He must be our top most priority…

This is the kind of love that brings extraordinary strength and determination in the heart of a believer… real courage cannot be achieved without it…

Just imagine how brave and courageous was our beloved Prophet (s.a.w) When He was migrating to Madinah with His companion Abu Bakr (r.a.) they had taken refuge in a cave… and the enemy came so close that Abu Bakr (r.a.) became anxious… at that time the Prophet (s,a,w) assured Him: “ Do not grieve… Allah is with us!”

Who can say it except the one with the utmost conviction in Allah’s support… and this conviction can only be built with love… and trust…

Form this I learned that just as love of Allah strengthens the heart… similarly sadness and despair makes it weak…

So when we get these negative emotions then we should not let ourselves get drowned in our weakness… so keep this dua in front of you, which was prescribed by the Prophet (s.a.w) himself:

O Allah I seek your protection from worries and sadness, and weakness and laziness, and stinginess and cowardliness, and from debts and the oppression of people…

True faith is expressed by optimism and hope… because if you truly believe that Allah is the owner of everything and that He is your provider then how can any worry touch your heart… therefore sadness and anxiety shows that you need to work on your relationship with Allah… the stronger it gets, the happier you will be…

May Allah help us to become strong believers so that we can cross this test of life with enthusiasm and hope… ameen
