The Power of Prayers

Assalam’Alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته) 

Today I would like to share a story with you, that I have gone through myself. 

During that time, now looking back, I realize I was a muslimah just by name. I wasn’t practicing the religion astagfirullah (Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) forgive me) and I wanted a situation to work out.

I prayed for the situation to workout, but in Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى)’s way, He had His Own plan and my plan didn’t work. At that time, I was so devestated and frustrated. Everything seemed close for me. 

I was thinking how come my prayers didn’t work? It says in Qur’an, Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) will fulfill our duas, I used to wonder and cry over. I felt cheated and hurt. 

Indeed in Qur’an it does say, Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) is Most Beneficial and Most Merciful. He will fulfill our duas indeed, but on His time and when He plans. 

After 10 years later, I realized how Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) have saved me from disastrous outcome. He knew  and knows the future! He didn’t ignore me, but took care of me, even though I had felt He betrayed me, but in reality He never left me, it was me, who was far away from Him. Too far to understand His Wisdom. 

I know we all go through ups and downs in life, but never lose hope/faith in Him. That rope that you hold onto for His sake, it will bring rewards In Sha’Allah ( إن شاء الله). 

Please remember me in your duas. May Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى) fulfill our duas and give us hidaya and sabr to be on His Path. Aameen.

    As salamu alai kum sister. These are exactly my thoughts since a long time. Indeed these are time of hardships . There was a time when I was in despair and as a revert there is nobody to tell you about Allah’s mercy but Allah Himself. This is where we put our trust on Allah subhana wa ta’aala. Tawakkul. I know, In Shaa Allah, He alone is managing my affairs and I know He shall provide me with better In Shaa Allah. I am waiting for years to pass and to look back at this day to feel His mercy and realise His plan for me. In Shaa Allah. Sabr and prayer. Beautiful reminder to all those who are in despair. For all those, whose lives did not turn out as planned. It’s okay. It is more of a time to count our blessings 🙂
