Allah has provided for you in a special way.
Love Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala and be grateful to Him.
He has given you so much, and was kind to you in ways you didn’t even realize. He has given you what you love and what you need, and He has provided for you in a special way.
Imam al-Sa’di says, “And how many a servant has sought to be honored by attaining something of the dunya – leadership, or status or anything that he may love – and Allah removed it from him out of His mercy so that it does not harm him in his deen.
The slave then is persistent in his depression out of his ignorance and lack of awareness of His Rabb.
If he only knew what was kept hidden from him, and that Allah only kept it from him for his own betterment, he would have praised Allah, and thanked Him – For Allah is Kind, Loving, and Gentle to His close servants.”
Be patient when calamity strikes and be thankful whenever things are easy for you. Al-Lateef may put you through things that you may dislike, so be patient when this happens and when He gives you what you love, be thankful for it.
Look to the example of Yusuf (alayhi salaam) who said: qad ahsana bi, He has done good (ihsaan) upon me.
And Allah the Most High Knows best
