So here is the thing: life always throws out twists and turns. No one has the perfect life because all life is a test.
Sometimes the test is hardship and sometimes the test is ease.
Sometimes the test is HARD. Sometimes life just seems overwhelming and you feel like you cannot cope. Cannot breathe under the weight of it all.
Every day is like any punch to the kidneys.
Every moment you pray for patience, you know you just have to make it to the other side.
After all, Allah has promised that after hardship comes ease.
But in those moments, when the test feels overwhelming and life is a series of moments that test you.... it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
When you have chronic health issues, anxiety, depression, these moments can be quite frequent and quite dark.
When your own body keeps failing you, when it should be functioning but isn't, when it cannot be relied upon, this meat prison for your soul - there is no where to turn but to Allah.
When the loss of a loved one far away wrenches your heart because of the loss and the distance, there is nowhere to turn to but Allah.
When your anxiety and stress from work manifest themselves in critical physical symptoms and doctors warnings ring in your ears, and there seems to be no one who cares or listens because it is work and you just have to do it, there is no one to turn to but Allah.
He tests you with only what He knows you can bear. So you CAN bear this.
One breath at a time.
When Allah creates such beauty to appease your soul and remind you of His Majesty - turn to Allah.
Because at the end of the day, we are His.
انا لله وانا اليه راجعون .
