Dont Be Sad: Verily, with hardship, there is relief

{Verily, with hardship, there is relief} (Qur’an 94: 6)

Eating follows hunger, drinking follows thirst, sleep comes after restlessness, and health takes the place of sickness. The lost will find their way, the one in difficulty will find relief, and the day will follow the night.

{Perhaps Allah may bring a victory or a decision according to His
Will.} (Qur’an 5: 52)

Inform the night of a coming morning, the light of which will permeate the mountains and valleys. Give to the afflicted tidings of a sudden relief that will reach them with the speed of light or with the blinking of an eye.

If you see that the desert extends for miles and miles, then know that beyond that distance are green meadows with plentiful shade. If you see the rope tighten and tighten, know that it will snap.

Tears are followed by a smile, fear is replaced by comfort, and anxiety is overthrown by serenity. When the fire was set for him, Prophet Ibraheem (Abraham) (may peace be upon him) did not feel its heat because of the help he received from his Lord.

{We [Allah] said: ‘O’ fire! Be you coolness and safety for
Ibraheem!.} (Qur’an 21: 69)

The sea would not drown Prophet Moses (may peace be upon him), because he uttered in a confident, strong, and truthful manner:

{‘Nay, verily! With me is my Lord, He will guide me.}
(Qur’an 26: 62)

The Prophet Muhammad (bpuh) told Abu Bakr in the cave that Allah was with them — then peace and tranquility descended upon them.

Those that are slaves of the moment see only misery and wretchedness. This is because they look only at the wall and door of the room, whereas they should look beyond such barriers as are set before them.

Therefore do not be in despair: it is impossible for things to remain the same. The days and years rotate, the future is unseen, and every day Allah has matters to bring forth. You know it not, but it may be that Allah will afterwards bring some new thing to pass. And verily, with hardship there is relief.
