Salaam and Hello readers :-)

- 4 things Allah wants you to remember when life gets hard.
We’ve all had days (and maybe even years) when life just doesn’t seem to be going our way!In the grand scheme of things, a stressful morning doesn’t impact life or eternity all that much, but in those longer seasons of joblessness, sickness, financial stress, marriage strain and other ongoing life events, the stress and frustration can seem overwhelming. Here are a few things I’ve learned to remember in those challenging seasons of life that have helped me and I pray they help you as well!
1. Remember that your Character should always be stronger than your Circumstances.
We can’t always control what happens to us, but we can always control how we choose to respond. In those moments when I choose to stop complaining and instead give thanks to Allah for the good in my life, the parts that seem bad start to seem much less significant. Choose to keep a positive attitude and thankful heart regardless of what you’re going through.
2. Remember that your Struggles always lead to Strength.
Every difficulty in your life, whether big or small, is something Allah will use to produce more strength, faith and perseverance in you if you let Him! All your pain has a purpose.
Allah says: '' (Every) fruit (enjoyment) will be there for them; they shall have whatever they call for; '' (Quran 36: 57)
3. Remember that Allah’s timing is always perfect.
Allah’s plans are almost always different from our plans, but His plans are always perfect! Have the patience to wait on His timing instead of forcing your own.
4. Remember that Allah will never leave your side.
