And seek help through Patience & Prayer!

Imagine walking through a really thick dark fog. You’re struggling to see, your hands spread out in front of you, you’re desperately trying to find your way forward. Your sense of fear, confusion, anguish & stress is heightened. Lost in this thick fog you can’t focus on anything but this dark & scary mist! You don’t know what to do, or where to go for help!

And then imagine you find a bright torch in your pocket. You switch it on & start walking; your path is clear again, you can see exactly where you need to go & what you need to do. It’s not so scary anymore – it’s difficult but it’s not overwhelming.

The fog is trails/tribulations & the torch is your faith; Islam. We will always have ‘thick fog’s in our lives but without being armed with your Deen (faith) you will become overwhelmed, lost, confused & may wander off the track completely. 

It is imperative that when we are tested that we do not lose focus, we don’t become overwhelmed with fear/anguish or stress. And to do that we use the ‘tools’ taught by Islam to help us to cope with these trials/tribulations. 

Allah (God) says in the Quran; & seek help with patience and prayer. 

So for all those walking through their ‘thick fog’s – use His advice to get through it. Turn to Him submissively & consistently in prayer & be patient.

He’s only using this to call you back to Him; accept the invitation! 

HasbunAllahu wa ni’mal wakeel 🌸

  1. Imran Ali says:

    Al-‘Abbās, the uncle of the Prophet , came to the Prophet and said,
    “Ya Rasūlullāh, teach me a du’ā’.” .
    The Prophet said:
    “O my uncle, say:

    Allāhumma inni asaluka al-‘āfiyah
    (O Allāh, I ask you for ‘āfiyah).”

    What is ‘āfiyah?
    ‘Āfiyah means “to save me from any afflictions.
    To be healthy, you are in ‘āfiyah.
    To have enough money
    To live, you are in ‘āfiyah.
    To have your children protected,
    you are in ‘āfiyah.
    And if you are forgiven and not punished, you are in ‘āfiyah.
    ‘Āfiyah means
    “O Allāh, protect me from any pain and suffering.”
    This includes dunya and ākhirah.

    Al-‘Abbās thought about this for a while, and then he came back after a few days and said (paraphrased):
    “Ya Rasūlullāh, this du’ā’ seems a little short. I want something big.”
    The Prophet said, “My dear uncle, ask Allāh for ‘āfiyah for wallāhi, you cannot be given anything better than ‘āfiyah.”
    It is a simple du’ā’.
    Sincerely mean what you say.
    “O Allāh, I ask You to be saved from any distress, grief, hardship, harm. Don’t test me.”
    All of this is included in
    “Allāhumma inni asaluka al-‘āfiyah”

    Sunan At-Tirmidhi
