“Many people feel lonely because they think they haven’t found that perfect ‘companion’ in their lives yet. But know this: sometimes Allah sends everyone else away so that you can find your realest and deepest companionship in Him, in His words, in His messenger. Never despair!”—
“When a servant repents, Allah Ta’ala causes the recording angels to forget. The limbs with which those sins were committed are also made to forget. The signs of the sin on the earth are also eradicated to the extent to the extent that such an individual will meet Allah Ta’ala on the day of judgement in a state wherein he has no sins against his name.”—Ashraf Ali Thanvi narrates a hadith; Jamius Sagheer Vol. 1, pg 21
Do you mock the supplication and belittle it?
While you do not know what it has the power to do!
The arrows of the night (du’a) do not miss target
But they have a set limit, which shall come to end
So if my Lord wishes, He holds it back
And if the decree is to be fulfilled, He sets it forth.’
- Never Underestimate the Power of a Dua - This is the weapon of a Believer -
“The lives of the true believers are balanced between the extremes of human behavior. They neither become so happy with life’s successes that they forget Allah, nor do they become so depressed with life’s difficulties and failures that they lose hope in Allah.”— Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips
“A man asked Imam al-Shafi‘i, “What is better for man: to be afflicted or to have power?”
Imam al-Shafi‘i replied, “He will not be given power until he has been afflicted; Allah afflicted Nuh, Ibrahim, Musa, Isa, and Muhammad (peace be upon them all) and when they were patient, Allah bestowed power upon them. No one should think that he can avoid pain forever.”—
“People of Taqwa! You were not created to perish, but to be transferred from one stage to another. You were transferred from [your father’s] loins to wombs, then from wombs to this life, then from this life to graves, then from graves to the Stand [Great Gathering on the Day of Resurrection] and then from the Stand to eternal dwelling, either in Paradise or the Fire”—Bilal b. Sa’d [Allah be pleased with him]
“The ibtilaa’ (test) of the believer is like medicine for him. It extracts from him the illnesses. Had the illness remained, it would destroy him or diminish his reward and level (in the hereafter). The tests and the trials extract these illnesses from him and prepare him for the perfect reward and the highest of degrees (in the life to come).”—
