When you’re hurt by people who share the same blood as you, then just
remember Yusuf (AS), who was betrayed by his own brothers.
If you find your parents opposing you, remember Ibrahim (AS), whose
father led him to the fire.
If you’re stuck with a problem where there’s no way out, remember
Yunus (AS), stuck in the belly of a whale.
If you’re ill & your body cries with pain, remember Ayoob (AS) who was
more ill than you.
When someone slanders you, remember Ai’sha (RA) who was slandered
throughout the city.
When you’re lonely, recall Aadam (AS) who was created alone.
When you can’t see any logic around you, think of Nuh (AS) who built
an ark without questioning.
If you are mocked by your own relatives then think of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
Allah (SWT) put these Prophets to trial, so that later generations may
learn a lesson of patience & perseverance.
May Allah SWT give us perspective & understanding. Aameen
