I hope that I won't have to go through the heartache and pain of divorce again, that this is my final marriage. I pray to be with my husband til the day Allah calls us back to Him. And Allah knows best. For now Im still counting towards it being forever.
Like I said I never saw it coming, caught completely off guard. But I guess that's life. You get knocked down and you have the choice whether to stay down or get back up and brush yourself off and keep moving. I always try to remember what Allah SWT says in the Qur'an
Fa inna ma'al 'usri yusra
Inna ma'al 'usri yusra
Verily, along with every hardship is relief.
Verily, along with every hardship is relief. (Surat Ash-Sharh, v. 5-6)
And also the words of our beloved Prophet (SAW):
“There is nothing (in the form of trouble) that touches the believer, even the pricking of a thorn, except that Allah decrees a good for him or effaces one of his sins because of that.” (Sahih Muslim, V. 4, Hadith # 6241)
If I constantly remember that, I'll be okay. Im getting there.
