Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Everyone who suffers poverty, distress, and a broken heart.

Everyone who is in heavy debt and, therefore, lives in loss and confusion and finds life to be narrow  and tough.

Everyone who goes through severe pains, and doctors cannot find a cure for him , and there is no way.

Everyone who is in grief and distress and upon whom life has turned its back, and he is surrounded with hardships.

Everyone whose son, loved one, or friend has traveled or been away for a long while, and so he agonizes, his heart shivers in sadness, and he sees the beautiful life around him as hard and gloomy.

Remember the verse that says:

{...Indeed, your Lord is All - Kind and Most Merciful.} .

[Surat an - Nahl: 7]

And repeat that verse that reads:

{...And Allah is All - Kind to [His] serv ants}

[Surat al - Baqarah: 207]

 Call out and say: My All-Kind Lord, show kindness to me, strengthen me, and remove my distress and the harm I am suffering.

Ibn al-Qayyim said: “Allah Almighty afflicts His servants to hear their complaints and earnest imploring and supplication to Him.”

{He said: “I only complain of my suffering and my grief to Allah...”}

[Surat Yūsuf: 86]

And then expect relief from your Lord, Who says:

{Is He [not best] Who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is there a deity with Allah? Little do you remember}

[Surat an-Naml: 62]

He is the All-Kind, the Most Merciful, the Magnificent, the Most High. How close and kind He is to His servants!

When you find a hardship getting tough, know that it will soon ease; when the night getting dark, rejoice, for the morning is approaching soon.

Do not be impatient or lose hope in the All-Kind and Most Merciful Lord. Indeed, things must necessarily change. The best act of worship is to wait for relief from Allah. Days bring change and fluctuations, and the future is pregnant with many possibilities, yet they are now unseen to us. Allah Almighty says:

{...Every day He is upon some affair}

[Surat ar - Rahmān: 29]

He also says:

{...Perhaps Allah wi ll bring about after that a [different] matter}

[Surat at - Talāq: 1]

And He says:

{Verily, with every hardship comes ease,Verily, with every hardship comes ease.}

[Surat ash - Sharh: 5 - 6]
