You feel reassured because Allah Almighty is with you. You constantly say:

{Say, “Nothing will ever befall us except that which Allah has decreed for us; He is our Protector.” And in Allah alone let the believers put their trust.}

[Surat at - Tawbah: 51]

[Surat al - Qasas: 5]

If your Lord grants you His protection, then you are under great care and enjoying a grand blessing; you err and He punishes you; you act extravagantly and He withholds things from you; and you behave arrogantly and He disciplines you. This is only because He is your protector, and what an excellent Protector and an excellent Helper!

You know with certain knowledge that this is a punishment from a loving Lord, not a punishment, for Allah does not punish His  beloved servants.

{The Jews and Christians say, “We are Allah’s children and His beloved ones. ” Say, “Why then does He punish you for your sins? Rather, you are humans just like anyone else He created...}

[Surat al - Mā’idah: 18]

{The Jews and Christians say, “We are Allah’s children and His beloved ones.” Say, “Why then does He punish you for your sins? Rather, you are humans just like anyone else He created...}

[Surat al - Mā’idah: 18]

My Lord, You are worthy of showing benevolence, and to You belong great grace and abundant bounty.

So pardon me, for I am at Your door, broken and humiliated.

O Allah, we implore You by Your name “Al-Mawla” to confer Your favor upon us and admit us into Paradise and to make us among Your pious servants and allies, in public and in secret.
