when we meet poverty in life. we tend to realize and see things that we could not see in life and the value of things and feelings of others who suffer. everyone gets a chance to see the real bitterness in every aspect in life and the cure for it.
JazakAllah khair for sharing your thoughts!
After my ex partner split from me, my whole world crashed. I lost my job, home, health and family. Within three months I was homeless and heart broke without a penny to my name.
I managed to get a room in shared accommodation, there was no electric or gas. The house was previously infested with mice and smelt very bad. The winter was very cold about -10 c , and the property was just as cold.
I went day after day without food, the longest was 8 days without a meal.
I was starving, alone and heartbroken with no family or friends to help.
It was through these times I turned to God. I asked Him to help. Over time things slowly improved and I was able to secure some work.
I like to think back to those times and reflect how Merciful God was to me. And also to appreciate the difficult times we humans face everyday.
ANSWER: Salaam, I apologize for the late reply. Indeed, it is during hard times that our hearts feel fragile the most and it is during those times that we tend to turn to God wholeheartedly. Alhamdulillah, praise to God that He brought you closer to Him. Every single thing that happened to each of us, no matter how good or bad, happened for a good reason. I believe that He has made you a better person today. Thank you for sharing your experience and thoughts with us. Stay blessed!
