A question I received was from someone who doesn’t understand Why Allah would allow for certain things to happen, I will quote her: “I got Heart broken by a guy whose getting married next few months, I don’t know how I am going to face it! My life is depressing I don’t want to live anymore, I don’t understand why Allah did this to me, I just want to die”
A broken heart, Sad, isn’t it? I am not feeling sad because she lost the man, but I am sad because she is easily broken. I know it’s hard, I’ve experienced sadness in my life, when our hearts get broken, in fact the term heartbroken doesn’t fit well for when I was feeling sad I was feeling my whole body is broken, my heart was torn apart, my mind and soul waging wars, it’s just a total mess. I think one can never understand what pain really is until he/she lost a dear one, but this understanding comes with a gift, gift of realizing the beauty of happiness and appreciating the things we didn’t lose yet.
I believe in such situations I mean when we are having a broken heart, One needs faith! One of Islam Pillars of Faith is "Belief in Al-Qadar" Muslims believe in Al-Qadar, which is Divine Predestination. The moment one asks: "Why Allah did this?" I am sorry to say it but actually it proves we don't have enough faith in Allah. If we really believed Allah is "The All Wise", we would understand this happened for a wise reason. If we believe Allah is "All Merciful" more merciful than our parents, ourselves...etc we would understand what happened to us is a Mercy for us but we still don't know because we don't know the future!
Allah knows the future, the past and present. If we really believe in Allah’s beautiful names, and act based on the knowledge we have about Allah’s names and attributes we will live the best life we can ever dream to live, we can be the strongest and nothing can hurt us or make us sad. I admit, I can’t count the times when my lips’ taste was of tears but at the same time each time I tasted my lips finding them sour, I appreciate it because after our main course we usually have a dessert. We shouldn’t be crying when the sun is gone, because we know it’s going to rise tomorrow…. Don’t fill your eyes with tears in the night, while it’s true the Sun is gone, you would miss seeing the beautiful moon and the lovely stars
