I always feel sad when someone I know gets engaged/married. Happy for them of course, but sad that I'm still our there unmarried and may be forever. What do you guys do to cheer yourselves up when frustrated/tired/sad about this whole marriage thing??
Yes I know exactly what you mean. It is shaythan who tries to put us down and tries to make us think that we will never find the one and that we will be alone forever whilst everyone else is happy.
If we have tawakkul and full hope and reliance on Allah with respect to EVERY aspect of our lives then how can sadness and depression ever overcome us?
How can sadness overcome us when Allah has chosen us out of Billions and given us the most special gift of imaan that which he does not give to everyone but he chose us and gave this gift to us. We will NEVER realise how luck we truly are!
How can sadness ever overcome us when Allah is there for us and is sustaining us when there are MILLIONS of people that are so unfortunate in this world and we could have easily be in their position but look at what Allah has given us! He has not only created us Muslims but given us luxurious lifestyles compared to what most people have in this world.
We should always look at those who have less and that will make us realise what we have got and how much Allah has blessed us. Even though these people may have so little they are still content and happy. Contentment and happiness ONLY comes from Allah and we can ONLY gain it from being obedient to the commandments of Allah and remembering and glorifying him as much as we can.
Let us not be ungrateful but let us be appreciative for Allah gives more to those who are thankful to him and grateful to him of what he’s given us.
Let us also have full trust, hope and reliance on him because he will give us what is best for us not what we think is best for us.
Let us build our hereafter because we are only on this earth for a few seconds in comparison to the hereafter so every second we waste being sad and depressed for no reason we are wasting when we could build our place in Jannah where we will inshallah reside in FOREVER.
We have to have our ultimate purpose and goal always in mind and always busy ourselves in trying our best in achieving this goal.Our aim is to gain Jannah and to do that we need to fulfil the commandments of Allah to the best of our ability and we have to remember that Jannah will be forever and that will be our eternal home inshallah so this in mind how can we ever be sad? This world is only very short so do we really have time to be sad or depressed? NO!
So with this in mind let us not be sad and depressed but be happy for what Allah has given us and be happy because we have FULL hope, trust and reliance in him for he is the one that will give us what is best for us so let us make him the happiest so that he may make us the happiest and give us contentment because contentment is ONLY with him not in anything else!
