    Re: Use the du'a of Nabi Adam (as) when you feel like a loser

    رَبَّنَا ظَلَمْنَا أَنفُسَنَا وَإِن لَّمْ تَغْفِرْ لَنَا وَتَرْحَمْنَا لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ
    Rabbana thalamna anfusana wain lam taghfir lana watarhamna lanakoonanna mina alkhasireena

    "Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If You forgive us not, and bestow not upon us Your Mercy, we shall certainly be of the losers."

    Surah Al-Araf ayah 23 [7:23]


    There are times when we feel like failures, losers, hasbeens, etc... We didn't past the test, get that job, marry that person, or make it to the store in time to buy some ice cream that was on sale at a really low price...Such is life. And this feeling is completely normal and very human.

    But how we react when we fail is what shapes you as a person. Do you give up? Or do you stop, reflect, and try to move on in the best of ways? A great story in the Quran about someone who failed their test, but still came through on top is the story of our father Nabi Adam (as).

    We all know of the story, so I won't get into that, but I what Nabi Adam (as) did after he failed should be an inspiration for all of us. Did Nabi Adam (as) give up? Nope. Did he pull a shaytan and try to blame Allah for what happened? Astaghfirullah No. He acknowledged that he was wrong and sought forgiveness. He understood that the only way to be a loser is to be away from Allah and not have His Mercy.

    As long as we're alive and breathing, this is the mentality that we should have. Failure is a part of life, but don't let the failures define you or make you stray from Allah
    جزاك اللهُ خيراً‎

    Also I inspired this post? Wow. Well I'm sure whatever thread I made was useless but at least something good came out of it.

      Not your recent ones, but there was one you made many moons back that was good.

      Also, you dropped a du'a and didn't expand on it. Please do akhi.

          I'll hold you to that inshaaAllah and since I'm nice, I'll even provide you with a rare Pippin certified rep once you're done.

          ..I feel like this thread is just a bunch of rambling posts by me, so please share your thoughts on the ayah/du'a and another one that you like. Plus, I shared my thoughts on it in post 30 so seeing a different perspective would be great.

              Alhamdulilah this is an excellent point sister. I hope that I can implement this when I'm feeling down, in sha Allah.
              Abu Malik at-Ash'ari reported:

              The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Cleanliness is half of faith

              and al-Hamdu Lillah (all praise and gratitude is for Allah alone) fills the scale, and Subhan Allah (Glory be to Allah)

              and al-Hamdu Lillah fill up what is between the heavens and the earth, and prayer is a light,

              and charity is proof (of one's faith)

              and endurance is a brightness and the Holy Qur'an is a proof on your behalf or against you.

              All men go out early in the morning and sell themselves, thereby setting themselves free or destroying themselves.

              أَلَمْ تَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُ ظَاهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ - 31:20

              Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him].
