When you are hurt by the people who share blood relations with you, recall Yusuf (alayhi salaam) who was also betrayed by his brothers! When you find your parents opposing you (in deen) recall Ibrahim (alayhi salaam) who was made to jump into a blazing fire by his father! When you are mocked and abused by your own relatives just because you adopted deen over duniya, recall Rasul Allah (sallalhu al…aihi wa sallam) who faced the same! When you are stuck in some problem and find no way out, recall Yunus (alayhi salaam) who was stuck inside the belly of a whale! When you fall ill and your whole body cries with pain, recall Ayoob (alayhi salaam) who was more ill than you! When you see some physical fault in yourself, recall Musa (alayhi salaam) who could not speak properly! When someone slanders you, recall A’isha (radiallahu anha) who was also slandered throughout the city! When you feel lonely recall how Adam (alayhi salaam) felt when he was created alone at first! When you can’t see any logic in what’s going on and your heart asks why this is happening, recall Nooh (alayhi salaam) who built the biggest ship without questioning! SubhanAllah!
