“Your Lord did not abandon you, nor did He forget”

More often than not, when adversity barges through the door of our hearts and sadness overtakes our emotions, we start to question why Allah would do this to us. We come up with conclusions like, ‘Allah doesn’t love me’, ‘Allah has abandoned me’, or, ‘Allah has forgotten about me’. Allah (SWT) addresses this issue in the Quraan by stating the fact that He hasn’t abandoned us, nor has He forgotten about us, and the hardships we’re facing. He is assuring us that Oh My Slave, I’m still here, I haven’t gone anywhere, and I haven’t forgotten about you either. For a Lord that loves His slaves more than a mother loves her child, would it be befitting of Him to abandon and forget you when He’s already promised that He hasn’t? For a Lord that runs towards you while you’re walking towards Him, would it be befitting of Him to abandon and forget about you when He’s already promised that He hasn’t? Of course not! During a test, the teacher usually makes their presence known, but doesn’t give the answers to the test. Similarly, in life, we go through trials and tribulations that can sometimes completely crush our faith in Allah, and the greater good. It is during these times especially when we’re supposed to notice the presence of our Lord; for He hasn’t abandoned us, nor has He forgotten. When the tests of the dunya bring us to our knees, we’re in the perfect position to pray to Him, to call upon Him for strength and to stand up one more time. To ask for help in fighting the demons in our heads, and the evils of life which surround us. Most importantly, we should know with full conviction that He hasn’t abandoned us, nor has He forgotten, simply because He said so. And it is not befitting of my Lord to utter anything but the truth. Indeed, He is The Greatest manager of all affairs. ☝
