Salam alaykum everyone,
Zeshan won’t be around here for around two months until the end of September. If he didn’t announce it before, he’s currently at basic military training for the air force. You’re welcome to continue sending him messages and what not, just know he won’t be able to answer for a while (his phone is unavailable as well, just btw).
Thanks, & I hope you all have a great day!

Patience isn’t easy.
Patience is tears. Patience is cringing out of anxiety. Patience is wanting to smash your fists into sujud. Patience is crying for a response from God. Patience is feeling alone. Patience is painful. Patience is taxing. Patience is clenched fists and grinding teeth. Patience is swallowing insults. Patience is smiles covering tears. Patience is so hard.
But remember, The Qur’an says:
"And how could we not place our trust in God, seeing that it is He who has shown us the path which we are to follow?’ ‘Hence, we shall certainly bear with patience whatever hurt you may do us: for, all who have trust [in His existence] must place their trust in God [alone]!’" [14:12]
Remember Who gave you the path to your salvation, have trust in your Lord, and remind yourself of what The Prophet said:
"Seek closeness [to God] and be steadfast [patient], and in all that afflicts the believer there is atonement, even a thorn that pricks him, and the hardship he suffers." [Tirmidhi]
These companies will put “halal” in front of anything to increase sales bruh. TELL ME HOW THIS RICE WAS FORBIDDEN BEFORE YOU MADE IT OKAY???
"You shall most certainly be tried in your possessions and in your persons; and indeed you shall hear many hurtful things from those to whom revelation was granted before your time, as well as from those who have come to ascribe divinity to other beings beside God. But if you remain patient in adversity and conscious of Him - this, behold, is something to set one’s heart upon."
- The Holy Qur’an 3:186
