patience in islam

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?

My dear seeking sister, you will meet a lot of men in your life. Please don’t settle. Wait. Wait for the one you would want your sons to be like. Find him, and then wait for him if you have to.
Wait for the one that treats you like a queen. The one you can depend on to protect and take care of you.
Wait. Wait if you have to.
