      I used to think that way to, like I shouldn’t complain because there are some people out there who have it way worse and my problems are so insignificant and I just seem like a brat for complaining. But that is so wrong. Holding it in makes everything worse. You can’t help that you feel sad so why should you feel bad about it? I don’t care if That seems selfish, you are entitled to feel the way you do. Allah is the most merciful and he will help everyone struggling one way or another whether it’s in this life or the after life. Allah wants you to ask him for help so don’t ever feel bad about how you feel when you are in trouble and don’t feel guilty about taking the time to pray for yourself and your own struggles.

      just something I have thought about a lot in recent years
      I'm just seeing the pattern of people who already have it bad getting it worse and it makes a person depressed, the mind asks WHY even though islamically we aren't supposed to think this. I struggle in accepting that some people only know peace when they're dead. I know that we aren't supposed to let this world be everything but to see some people whose lot is to suffer with little respite...I dunno what to do with that info. Then I get scared that this awaits me, as it's always in the back of my mind but I try not to dwell. My mother suffered. My grandmother suffered. I am suffering. It didn't get better for them so it's hard to believe with any confidence that it'll get better for me.

      Just writing this out and getting it out of my head is helping a bit. I can at least see as I type WHY that Allah will have His reasons. Sometimes your heart has gone out to someone, you just really wanna hear some good news, not that they are in a worse situation! Does Allah get upset with us because we're supposed to be happy with his decree? This makes me feel guilty, yet if I was to just say 'it's Allah's decree' and move along (like I've seen ppl do) I'd also feel guilty. People can say 'it's Allah's decree' without even caring, or thinking it means they can stop caring.

      • Sorry if the above made anyone feel more sad. I just heard about those two ladies situations getting worse and it set me off.

          • Seeing a man from Gaza say that his wife was killed by an Israeli air strike and he was just laughing and happy because he said she was a shaheed so he knew she would intercede for him and the members of her family. May Allah (swt) ease all of our pains and especially the families of the shuhda
            Don't depend too much on anyone in this world because even your own shadow leaves you when you are in the darkness

              Just a couple days ago on this thread I wrote the exact same thing about not feeling peace until death.

              I think that its ok to feel upset. This world is a test and it's not meant to be easy. Even the best of people, as in the prophets felt upset by the trials of this world. Prophet Yaqub AS comes to mind. Its good to have patience and acceptance of the way things are but I don't think that means that you aren't supposed to feel upset about it.

              Sometimes I think about qadr and how some peoples lives go from bad to worse and they will never get it good in this life. Im in the same boat honestly. I've been trying to manage my expectations recently. I have a habit of fixating on one goal and if I don't achieve it I am completely devastated which makes me always feel like my dua's mean nothing and I never get what I want. But im trying to have faith in Allah. Maybe what I want isn't very good for me and I just need to trust him more. And maybe that means that I or anyone else in a bad situation will never get what I want we want in this life which is a bit depressing but I have hope. Its hard to have patience and not complain all the time. I admittedly don't always practice what I preach but I know that Allah doesn't burden people with more then they can handle and because of that I feel like even when I am in the depths of despair I will get through it one way or another.

              • So basically..

                https://muslimskeptic.com/2021/06/14...-hajj-tourism/

                "Saudi Arabia announced Saturday this year’s hajj pilgrimage will be limited to no more than 60,000 people, all of them from within the kingdom, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic."

                Don't like it but I get it for safety.

                "Saudi tourism and entertainment seasons are set to return in the fourth quarter of 2021 with more excitement and larger-scale events, Visit Saudi by Tourism Authority announced on Sunday."

                Ugh.
                Per aspera ad astra.

                  Good to see you back here posting, how you doing sis?
                  And with Him are the keys of the Ghayb (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in the land and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but He knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record�
                  [al-An�aam 6:59]
