❝Sometimes, we go through struggles and battles in our lives or within ourselves for so long that we begin to wonder why things aren’t getting better. We increase in good deeds, we pray, we try to change everything about ourselves, so that we can maybe, just maybe, be “worthy” of freedom from that struggle. Sometimes, however, it’s not only about making a change within ourselves. That’s just the beginning. Sometimes, we need to experience something, and the struggle is protecting us from something worse or is preparing us for what’s to come. So, when you struggle with something, try your best to overcome it through strength, patience, and betterment, but ALWAYS remember that your solution will come when the time is right for you. You don’t know what it means for something to be right for you, but Allah does, so hold tight, be patient, and never give up. Allah always fulfills His Promise.❞
