And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah ]
Who are certain that they will meet their Lord and that they will return to Him. [Surat al-Baqara, 2:24-26]
I love these two verses. Seek help through patience and prayer- but these can be difficult. Actually, we do the opposite sometimes when we are faced with difficulty. We turn away from prayer and patience. Allah tells us it is difficult except for the “khashi’een”- the humbly submissive. And who are they?
Those who are certain that they will meet their Lord and that they will return to him.
When things go wrong, we lose sight of things. We lose sight of where we are journeying to. We lose sight of the fact that this world is a dream, and we are actually going Home. If you want to be of the “khashi’een” then remember – be certain – that you will meet your Lord. You will return to Him. This moment of difficult is a passing moment. Take a few steps back and see that you Allah is bigger than this difficulty. And who can get you through it except al-Kabeer, He is who is greater?
