YOU AND I - JUST A PART OF THE SCHEME OF THINGS
Everyone suffers some form of pain in this world. But the greatest pains are the emotional pains which affect a person from head to toe and for longer periods, days, weeks, months, even years...so take a deep breath for you are not alone. If you are a single person (either male or female), just be patient and remember that all that glitters is not gold. People can be very attractive on the exterior but they could be very bad human beings on the other hand. There is so much suffering in today's world so be thankful to God for the countless blessings we take for granted.
This life and this world is only temporary. Do enjoy it within limits but don't attach all your hopes with it. Prepare yourself for an everlasting afterlife and the next world where you will live forever and forever. That's what you need to focus on. Don't stop living, don't just exist in this world but try to live this life in submission to the commandments of ALLAH (swt) and His Prophet (pbuh) so that you pass the test you are given by the Almighty. Everyone of us have been assigned a unique test. We should find out what it is as a form of self-discovery. And we should keep consulting the different experts in the field of Islam for scholars of Islam are like the stars in the night. Along with it, we need to read Qur'an with translation and authentic hadith literature (sayings of the Prophet pbuh).
So let's start our journey on a spiritual path which might not be easy in this world but our Lord can make it easy for us if we really try hard. The real rewards may lie in afterlife, not in this world, never forget that.
ALLAH be with all of us and may He forgive us for our transgressions - Aameen.
