Favorite Qur'an verses/hadith
A'salaamu alaikum ya'll. So I'm facing some issues right now (what believer doesn't???) and I do indeed take comfort in the words from the Qur'an. I want to post some of my favorites right now and insha'Allah it can serve as a reminder to us all, in good times AND in bad.
"Verily, after hardship there is ease." Qur'an 94:6
"Bear with patience whatever befalls you" Qur'an 31:17
"And put your trust in ALLAH if you are a believer indeed" Qur'an 5:23
""No calamity befalls on earth or in yourselves but is inscribed in the Book of Decrees – before We bring it into existence." Qur'an 57:22
"Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest." Qur'an 13:28
"Therefore remember Me and I will remember you…" Qur'an 2:152
The Prophet (pbuh) said, "Whoever Allah wishes good for, He inflicts him (with hardship)." [Bukhari]
I've had some issues I've been dealing with and I will admit there are times when I have forgotten to turn in everything to my Creator. I find when I read verses such as these, it serves as a great reminder and helps me to trust in Allah and His grace and providence.
One issue is my transplant. I've been having some pain around my transplant site and they've schedule and ultrasound and clinic appointment tomorrow. My creatnine has crept up again, 1.97 which is almost 2.0 (yeah duh! lol). That is kinda the number where they say, Oh snap, kidney looks like it might be failing.
Just make du'a for me, sisters, that I come through these hardships with stronger iman and even more faith and trust in the qadr of Allah. And while we're at it, please make dua' for a very nice Persian sister I've met the past 2 Ramadhans at my masjid. She's so kind masha'Allah and she asked me to make du'a for her sons, that they become strong in their faith.
It touched a chord in me. I am always humbled by those with strong faith, who turn first to Allah in their hearts when trouble strikes them. And her asking me to pray for her and her sons... it humbled me, sisters. So please, if you can remember. make du'a for this sisters and ask Allah to grant her requests and also remember me to Allah.
Jazakum Allahu khair!
UPDATE: I just heard our brothers and sisters in Libya are liberated! The tyrant Ghadafi is gone! Allahuakbar! Allahuakbar!! Allahuakbar!!! May Allah swt guide their new leaders to institute laws that are just and equitable for all and free all our ummah from persecution, amin!
