How many times
do you need to be told
that God is close to you
before your heart is reassured?

His words,
“Surely I am near”
are preserved for eternity.

So when your heart quivers
with uncertainty
look no further than His Book.

You can read it
a million times
and still find Him telling you
“Surely, I am near.”

I admire those people who go through tests after tests after tests and still have so much tawakkul in Allah. And subhanallah, it just shows that their tests were infact blessings in disguise for them. Because of their patience and gratitude, Allah increased their Imaan. And what better gift is there than Imaan?

قُلْ لَنْ يُصِيبَنَا إِلَّا مَا كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَنَا هُوَ مَوْلَانَا ۚ وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ

“Say: ‘Nothing shall ever happen to us except what Allāh has ordained for us. He is our Maula (Lord, Helper and Protector).’ And in Allāh let the believers put their trust.”

Qur’ān, Sūrah At-Tauba (9:51)

The best lesson you can teach your soul is to be patient when you’re happy - because happiness ends & to be patient when you’re sad - because sadness ends. Nothing is constant. Everything is temporary. Except Allaah, your Creator. As His creation whom He knows best, be patient during all circumstances, all events, all times. Whatever it is you’re going through, He knows you to put you through it - you. Not someone else; you. So look for the lessons in all circumstances, look for the meaning, look for the blessings. & keep this in mind: all lessons are blessings & all blessings are lessons.
