    Thank you for all of your replies and private messages. I was looking there for some relieving and sense of community I have never experienced.

    I am sorry I didn't respond to you earlier but I was in the hospital for almost two weeks and it was toi hard to focus on something but sleeping and watching TV. I had blood tests two weeks ago due to my bad state of being and my GP had noticed something that made her suspicious and she referred me to the hospital. My health problems are much deeper than I had thought and more physical rather than psychological. I am waiting for the result of final tests to come but it is almost certain that new trials are approaching me. In seconds of great despair, I called my sister. I said that all of the mess she has done made me ill and I could die now (the medical authority I was talking with, said that stress is an important factor in developing that kind of illness). She said that she would pay for a consultation with some famous doctor who is quite successful in treating cases like mine. On the other hand, the doctors have offered me free treatment in a public hospital which is known for its successful children treatment.

    But to be honest, it dosen't mind to me if I would die. I have nothing to live for. I can't change my sister. She is lost battle . I have lost my faith. My therapist encourages me to study English and become and teacher but due to my health, I can't apply right now. The treatment will be painful and likely unsuccessful and I haven't got strength even for it. Everything hurts me a lot.

    Reading your comments, I have to say one thing (please forgive me, if I sound harsh). In Islam, we are taught that the burden we carry is never beyond our scope and the bad things in our lives are tests to challenge us and to reward us in paradise. There was the moment when I was searching the Web to find some Islamic solace but I didn't find it. But what if IT IS beyond scope? But what if the burden is too heavy to carry? In the darkest hours, I was thinking that God is somewhat very cruel. Why does He want us to suffer like that? There are people who commit adultery and shirk, who make funny from the prophet ( pbuh ) and they are quite happy and fine. There are even pious people who didn't suffer a lot and they will enter the paradise. And there people like me. To be honest, telling me about tests hurts me even more.

    Thank you for everything you have written to me.

      please read everything

      Sister i understand where your coming from and u may think that u cant burden everything your going through but look you are
      Your still a muslim you still worship Allah you havent left islam and u havent died either
      mentally and emotionally u are being tested but your still handling it.
      do not let shaytaan trick you
      he wants you to be angry with Allah he wants
      you to leave islam he wants you to go to hell he is the one putting these waswas in your head



      Praise be to Allaah.

      This world is the place of striving and the Hereafter is the place of reward or punishment, where the believers will be rewarded with Paradise and the disbelievers will be punished with Hell.

      Paradise is good and none but those who were good will enter it. Allaah is Good and accepts nothing but that which is good. So the way of Allaah with His slaves is to test them with calamities and tribulations, so that the believer may be known from the kaafir and so that the truthful may be distinguished from the liar, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

      “Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: ‘We believe,’ and will not be tested.

      And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allaah will certainly make (it) known (the truth of) those who are true, and will certainly make (it) known (the falsehood of) those who are liars, (although Allaah knows all that before putting them to test)”

        [al-‘Ankaboot 29:2-3]

        Victory and success cannot be achieved except after tests which will bring the good forth from the evil and tell the believer apart from the kaafir, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

        “Allaah will not leave the believers in the state in which you are now, until He distinguishes the wicked from the good. Nor will Allaah disclose to you the secrets of the Ghayb (Unseen)”

        [Aal ‘Imraan 3:179]

        Among the trials with which Allaah tests His slaves in order to distinguish the believers from the disbelievers is that which He mentions in the aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

        “And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Saabiroon (the patient).

        Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: ‘Truly, to Allaah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.’

        They are those on whom are the Salawaat (i.e. who are blessed and will be forgiven) from their Lord, and (they are those who) receive His Mercy, and it is they who are the guided ones”

        [al-Baqarah 2:155-157]

        So Allaah tests His slaves, and He loves those who are patient, and gives them the glad tidings of Paradise.

        Allaah tests His slaves with jihaad, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

        “Do you think that you will enter Paradise before Allaah tests those of you who fought (in His Cause) and (also) tests those who are As-Saabiroon (the patient)?”

        [Aal ‘Imraan 3:142]

        Wealth and children are a trial by means of which Allaah tests His slaves, to know who will give thanks for them, and who will be distracted from Allaah by them:

        “And know that your possessions and your children are but a trial and that surely, with Allaah is a mighty reward”

        [al-Anfaal 8:28 – interpretation of the meaning]

        Allaah tests us, sometimes with calamities and sometimes with blessings, to show who will be thankful and who will be ungrateful, and who will obey and who will disobey, then He will reward or punish them on the Day of Resurrection:

        “and We shall make a trial of you with evil and with good. And to Us you will be returned”

        [al-Anbiya’ 21:35 – interpretation of the meaning]

        Testing is according to one’s faith; the most severely tested among mankind are the Prophets, then the next best and the next best. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When I fall ill, my pain is equivalent to the pain of two men among you.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5648).

        Allaah tests His slaves with different kinds of trials.

        Sometimes He tests them with calamities and tribulations to distinguish the believer from the disbeliever, the obedient from the disobedient, the grateful from the ungrateful.

        Sometimes Allaah tests His slaves with calamities; when they commit sin, He punishes them with calamities so that they might come back to him, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

        “And whatever of misfortune befalls you, it is because of what your hands have earned. And He pardons much”

        [al-Shoora 42:30]

        “And indeed We seized them with punishment, but they humbled not themselves to their Lord, nor did they invoke (Allaah) with submission to Him” [al-Mu’minoon 23:76]

        Allaah is merciful to His slaves; He sends repeated tribulations upon the ummah so that they may return and repent to Him, and give up that which Allaah has forbidden, and so that Allaah might forgive them. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

        “See they not that they are put in trial once or twice every year (with different kinds of calamities, disease, famine)? Yet, they turn not in repentance, nor do they learn a lesson (from it)”

        [al-Tawbah 9:126]

        It is part of the mercy of Allaah that disasters befall sinners in this world, so that their souls might be purified and they might come back to Allaah before they die:

        “And verily, We will make them taste of the near torment (i.e. the torment in the life of this world, i.e. disasters, calamities) prior to the supreme torment (in the Hereafter), in order that they may (repent and) return (i.e. accept Islam)”

        [al-Sajdah 32:21 – interpretation of the meaning]

        Sometimes Allaah tests His slaves with calamities in order to raise them in status and to expiate for their sins, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “No misfortune or disease befalls a Muslim, no worry or grief or harm or distress – not even a thorn that pricks him – but Allaah will expiate for some of his sins because of that.” (Agreed upon. Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5641)


        now do you understand why a muslim a believer goes through these tests
        it is so his sins are forgiven and so his chance of reaching paradise increases
        Allah tests the real believers just like He tested the prophets the best of mankind
        you being tested but staying strong and true to Allah with patience and gratitude is better than the one not tested your chance of gaining reward is more
        so when you see a muslim who is not being tested dont be sad or jealous
        you being tested is a blessing in disguise
        also you may not see everything they maybe goimg through trials at home or mentally we dont know what trial each person goes through
        while the kuffar and fake muslims who commit shirk and kufr they are relaxing and having fun now but Allah is letting them have some time but later Allah will give them the hellfire
        While the believers will have paradise
        have patience sister say alhamdullilah these troubles your going through your sins are being washed away
        and thank Allah and pray to Allah and make dua to Allah to help you when in hardship
        dont ever give up
        and never stop repenting as Allah will forgive your sins even if it reaches the skies
        Allah is shy not to answer the dua of the believer
        and there is even a hadith that says if there were people that did not sin Allah would replacr them with people that did sin and then repented as Allah loves those people who repent

        sister do not lose faith do you not want paradise

          Sister, where are you from? Someone mentioned Poland? If yes, please contact me, I'm from a neighbouring country and I got an offer for you that may help distract you from the awful problem you got and direct you into focusing more on deen.

            Only just spotted this thread. Sister I'm really sorry to hear you're going through such an awful time. People underestimate how much of a difficult trial loneliness is and on top of that struggling to make ends meet as well. I think a very crucial life lesson that most of us tend to overlook is the correct understanding of Qadaa wal Qadr which is part of our aqeedah. This entails an understanding of which aspects of life are out of our control and which are within our ability to influence, to understand that we are not superhuman and cannot achieve everything at once at a pace that is unmanageable. We have our capabilities in terms of how much we can work, how much we can study, how much we can take care of ourselves and how much we can keep ties with others and it seems to me you've overstretched your limits on every single one of these issues to now reaching breaking point.

            Your sister's beliefs are completely outside of your control, that is why I mentioned that. A Muslim's duty is only to remind people of what is right and wrong and ultimately, then it's up to the people whether they accept that reminder or reject it. We don't consider another person's rejection of Islam as our own personal failure just because the outcome wasn't what we hoped for- that was her failure, not yours and not Allah's (swt). The Prophet (saw) had stones thrown at him by children in Taif and yet that didn't deter him or cause him to say "Why me?" and give up on persevering for Allah's (swt) sake. I'm not even suggesting that you try to convince your sister of anything right now, rather I'm saying to keep living for your own sake and find a way of carrying on for yourself regardless of where her life is.

            The key here (rather than lamenting as to why Allah ta'ala put you in this position) is to re-evaluate what is manageable for you and stick with that. I think the first two priorities here are to take care of your physical and mental health, then stick to only working as many hours as are manageable to make ends meet. Is it possible to get a better job with a better salary? If not a better salary then at least a place that is less intense and draining than McDonalds? You're already smart enough to be fluently bilingual (If you're in another country, I assume English is not your first language). What I mean is, you already have a lot of capability and potential there to move yourself towards a better situation than the one you are in now, but first you need to stop overstretching your physical, emotional and psychological limits in trying to achieve everything at once and start addressing these problems in bitesize manageable chunks. I know this will sound very silly and very zen, but take some time (even if it's only 30 minutes) to be somewhere that makes you feel better. It could be a park, or it could be an animal sanctuary or it could just be sitting at home and drawing or doing something relaxing but make time for these sorts of things that help you unwind and recuperate and spend less time looking at screens.

            May Allah make it easy for you, sis. Try to be patient during hardship.
            When it feels too much to bear, make dua asking Allah to increase you in patience and strength to endure hardship.


            Narrated `Abdullah:

            I visited Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) while he was suffering from a high fever. I said, "O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)! You have a high fever." He said, "Yes, I have as much fever as two men of you." I said, "Is it because you will have a double reward?" He said, "Yes, it is so. No Muslim is afflicted with any harm, even if it were the prick of a thorn, but that Allah expiates his sins because of that, as a tree sheds its leaves." (Sahih al Bukhari)



            He has created man from a sperm-drop; and behold this same (man) becomes an open disputer! (16:4)

                  This was a very difficult read indeed.

                  On top of what others have said, know that guidance is not in your hands. You cannot guide whoever you love. Our very own prophet (saw) couldnt get his own uncle, Abu Talib, to proclaim faith before he died, according to a lot of scholars

                  keep in touch with your sister. See if there is anything you can do for her. People can be a means through which people are guided. But Do not feel as if it’s up to you to get her to return. That is not your burden.

                    salaams to all

                    i think the sister needs to keep the company of good muslims.
                    she should go to her local musjid regularly and attend any classes etc that are conducted for sisters.

                    all of us will feel even more depressed if we have problems but have nobody to speak to about it.

                    and PLEASE, no matter what, keep up with your salaah.

                    sometimes we are being tested & sometimes its a punishment for sins committed in the past.

                    whatever, Allah ta'ala does it for our benefit.
                    it may not seem that way but its better to clear our accounts in this world rather than having to face punishment in the aakhirah.
                    make taubah-sincere repentance & do your utmost best to be a good muslim.

                    and Allah ta'ala knows best
