بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
When things are going bad, it’s hard to remember the good that we have been given. This is especially true for du’as. Sometimes Allah gives us tremendous things responding to what we asked for. And it feels amazing and exhilarating. But time passes, and we forget. So when a response to a dua is delayed, we feel disheartened, not remembering that Allah has responded to us numerous times before.
So my resolution is to write down a list of the times Allah has responded to me. I can refer back to this list to feel grateful; to feel motivated; and simply, to remember.
