A friend will not literally share your struggles.
And a loved one can not physically take away your pain.
And a close one will not stay up on your behalf in prayer.
So look after yourself. Protect yourself. Nurture yourself and don’t give life’s events more than what they are really worth.
Know for certain that when you’re break, no one will heal you except you, and when you are defeated, no one will give you victory except your determination.
Your ability to stand up again and carry on is your responsibility.
Don’t look for yourself worth in the eyes of the people; look of your worth from within your conscience. If your conscience is that peace, then you will ascend high. And if you truly know yourself, then what is said about you won’t harm you.
Don’t carry the worries of this life because this is for Allah.
And don’t carry the worries of sustenance because it is from Allah.
And don’t carry the anxiety for the future because it is in the hands of Allah.
Carry one thing: How to please Allah. Because if you please Him, He pleases you, fulfills you and enriches you.
Don’t weep from a life that made your heart weep, just say “O Allah compensate me with good in this life and the hereafter”
Sadness departs with sajdah (prostration). Happiness comes with a sincere dua.
Allah does not forget the good you do nor does He forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieve them from, nor he would forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh.
Live your life with this principal.
Be good even if you don’t receive good, not for others’ sake but because Allah loves those who do good.
