quranic ayah

“You’ll never truly understand a verse until something in your life makes you see it and appreciate it in a whole new way.”

I was feeling so down for the past week because of something. Today, i opened the Qur'an to a random page and subhanallah. Of all the surah’s in the Qur'an it could’ve opened to, and it opened to Surah Yusuf. And i found myself crying because of the ayaats i was reading.

Sometimes, things don’t go the way you wanted it to and it hurts. But you just have to find the strength to push the pain aside and remind yourself He is the best of Planners. And He will never leave you empty handed.

What is to come is better than what was.

“So patience is most fitting.”

[Surah Yusuf: 83]

قَالَ رَبِّ اشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي

[Moses] said, “My Lord, expand for me my breast [with assurance]

وَيَسِّرْ لِي أَمْرِي

And ease for me my task

وَاحْلُلْ عُقْدَةً مِّن لِّسَانِي

And untie the knot from my tongue

يَفْقَهُوا قَوْلِي

That they may understand my speech.

وَاجْعَل لِّي وَزِيرًا مِّنْ أَهْلِي

And appoint for me a helper from my family.

— Sūrat Ṭā-Hā (20:25-29)

رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ
—  Our Lord, pour upon us patience and plant firmly our feet and give us victory over the disbelieving people. (2:250)
