Have you ever felt like giving up when things just don’t fall into places?
Put our trust in Allah, indeed He is always near and always listens to each and every prayer we make. The power of a du’aa is never to be underestimated. Don’t give up just yet, just don’t give up hope.
Surah Maryam, Chapter 19, Verse 4.
"He (Zakaria a.s) said, "My Lord, indeed my bones have weakened, and my head has filled with white, and never have I been in my supplication to You, my Lord, unhappy."
"Dia (Zakaria) merayu dengan berkata: Wahai Tuhanku! Sesungguhnya telah lemahlah tulang -tulangku, dan telah putih melepaklah uban kepalaku; dan aku - wahai Tuhanku - tidak pernah merasa hampa dengan doa permohonanku kepadaMu."
Yes, we do just dramatize a lot. But it’s all humorous I promise! At least most of the time. You won’t be able to understand the love/hate relationship with architecture and how we express it until you become an architecture student yourself. Don’t get us wrong, we love what we do, it’s just really hard work and sometimes architecture just kicks us in the ass.
So whenever you see these statements like,
“kill me now architecture!”
“no longer have a social life”
“what is sleep?”
“the struggle is real”
It’s just us expressing our frustration and passion for architecture.
Normally when you are making Dawah to your friends or relatives, to pray five times daily or to start practicing Hijab etc etc…most of them will respond by saying,”pray that Allah guides us” or “I’ll do it whenever Allah guides me”!!
They mean after hearing the proofs and the truth…most of all after having the Quran as our guide….they still wait for guidance..without even trying to get it???
In various verses of the Quran a phrase "yahdee man yashaa" or "yahdee man yureedu" 22:16) appears which is commonly translated as "He (Allah) guides those whom He Wills"
This is misunderstood by many muslims that if guidance depends upon Allah’s Will, then there is nothing one can do about it. There is no use of making any effort to attain guidance- When Allah shall Will, we will be guided. If Allah shall not Will, we cannot attain guidance no matter how much we strive for it.
Although the phrase"yahdee man yashaa"is usually translated as"He guides those whom He Wills", it is perfectly correct, according to the Arabic Grammar, to translate this phrase as ”He guides those who will (to be guided)”. But this does not remove the basic confusion i.e. Does Allah guide all those who will to be guided? Or there is something that we “must do” in order to attain guidance? In other words, are there any rules or laws or criteria according to which the guidance is attained or Does Allah just select some people randomly to guide?? Auzu Billah
People who say sadness doesn’t hurt physically apparently never experienced feeling so sad. I’ve felt it in my legs, my jaw, my head, my quivering lips, aching eyes, and my aching chest. It hurts my chest the most because it literally feels like your heart is in pain.
