“O you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer.
Indeed, Allah is with the patient.” (Qur’an, 2:153)
Thinking deeply of this verse, I think the solution that is put for those who are suffering is so hard. Allah is telling them to seek help through 1. patience and 2. prayer!
Allah in the same chapter says:
“And we surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient,” (Qur’an, 2:155)
Who are the patient? how did Allah the Almighty descibe them? He says, they are the patient,
“Who, when disaster strikes them, say, “Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return.” (Qur’an, 2:156)
When you feel depressed, just recite, “There is no deity excepy You; exalted are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.” as the man of the fish (Prophet Yunus- peace be upon him) said while he was in the belly of the whale!
When you feel that you are conned by people around you, recite, “I entrust my affar to Allah. Indeed, Allah is Seeing of [His] servants.”
When you are afraid of something, recite, “Sufficient for us is Allah, and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs.”
Ya allah make us among those who have beauiful paitence. Amen.
