“Think positively!” is the most common phrase. I used to hear this every single day. I was a girl who used to curse fate and life for everything that went wrong. I was depressed, spiritually weak, and distressed; I used to blame myself for my ill-fate and for every mishap. I was always a good student, but soon the turmoil deepened its root, and I started to lose my grades. The good girl turned into a bad irritable girl, but soon found peace within herself.
It sounds so easy to get close to Allah (swt), but actually, it is the most difficult journey. All you have to face is total guilt. I faced myself going back to my past- it seemed like I started living in hell having vicious flash backs. My heart sank, my brain struck with pain. I wanted to get rid of my past, and still, I am trying to get rid of it. But trust me- it’s more peaceful than before. I feel I am half washed and half pure because I am trying.
Maybe my story is not that strong, but all I believe is that trying and getting close to Allah (swt) will not just enlighten your heart, but it will also stabilize your soul.
I am the luckiest person living on earth, and I am sure you will be the next.
Hold on to Allah (swt), this is all we need for success…
“Some found Allah (swt) in the depth of their sin.” This is what I love to relate with myself.
People often get too depressed for what they had been doing in the past, and they lose hope in nurturing their self and soul for better.
I personally advise people to let it off and try to start a new chapter- A pure chapter of your life. Insha’Allah.
