A little breeze of mercy, in this Month of miracles. 

I came across this today & had to smile, because it is only ever so significant in the midst of my duaas these past few weeks. 

 
Hope it makes you smile too. 🙂 

I’ve never asked God to give me a specific person.

“Please let me marry so and so.”

No matter how much I’ve wanted to at times.
No. I’ve always prayed that God grant me someone who I love only for His sake, and someone who loves me only for His sake. It’s hard. It’s really really hard biting back the name of the person youthink is right for you. Somebody may seem so, so, perfect on the outside, but only God knows what is in a person’s heart.

He knows you best, and He will give you somebody better than you could have picked out for yourself. Keep making du’a about being blessed with someone who is the BEST for you, and see what He does. He knows what we want, but He also knows what we need. Our sight may be limited, but His is infinite.

Investing in God will never leave you poor. In fact, it’s when a human being gives up control and realizes that NOTHING is in his hands, that the true spirit comes out. God has already chosen the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with. Nothing you do, or don’t do, will change that. Instead, God has created barriers and obstacles in the path of meeting that person that are there to test how we react. Are we patient, or do we start to fret and worry when something doesn’t go our way?

I know it’s hard. It’s hard seeing others getting married and being in “love” (Things may not always be so perfect as they seem on the outside.) Especially if you’re of marrying age, and you’re waiting to find the right spouse. But be patient. Patience and prayer. They always work. Always. Prayer develops patience. And patience is the one vital thing most humans lack. (This one at least.)

God will give you a love story better than any of the ones you’ve ever read about or the ones you pay $10.50 to go and watch. Never ever let your trust in Him decrease. Grow as a person. Learn to love yourself first and wholeheartedly before you have to love someone else. Remember, you are the only person you need to make yourself whole. Marriage is only for someone to give you support, love, and friendship to make YOU a better YOU. You are you, and you are enough. But there’s someone out there who can help make you a better you. And God willing, you will find them.

I pray that we all can have patience when it comes to waiting for the right one. And that God blesses us with people who are righteous and who will help us attain the ultimate goal: Pleasing Him and being granted Jannah.

This is only a test.
