How To Deal With Difficult Situations : Here are 7 practical steps to help you face any difficult situation :
1. Salah (Namaz-Prayer):
Make sure you stick to praying on time – 5 times a day. Never miss a Salah and do your best to pray each Salah with sincerity as if it’s your last #Salah in this world. (#How To Deal With Difficult Situations)
Salah is a protection from sins. By abandoning the salah, you have put down the special armor given to you by ALLAH.
2. Read Quran:
This Quran is so beautiful that no matter what difficulties you face you’ll find solace in it.
Read the Quran again and again and forget about what’s bothering you. Allaah’s words has the ability to give you peace of mind.
3. Make Dua (how to deal with difficult situations) :
Especially the #dua for removing anxiety.
“O Allaah, I take refuge in You from anxiety and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, the burden of debts and from being over powered by men.”
Allahumma inni ‘a’udhubika minal hammi walhuzni, Wal’ajzi walkasali, walbukhli waljubni, Wa dal’id-daiyni wa ghalabatir-rajal
[Sahih al-Bukhari, 7/158]
Don’t stop making any dua thinking its impossible, nothing is impossible for Allaah. Never give up on yourself! Even when things seem difficult, be patient, make dua, work hard, and rely on Allaah.
4. Give Sadaqah (how to deal with difficult situations) :
Give lots of charity, as much as you can, because it helps push away hardship. And if you can’t give money, even kind words or physical #sadaqah can do (i.e. helping people physically or emotionally).
Continue to give sadaqah/charity. Verily it extinguishes your sins, brings happiness to your heart, relieves you from sadness and regret and increases your Rizq from Allaah.
5. Set Goals and Have Vision:
Don’t let shaytaan play with you and keep replaying the video of your hardship in your mind over and over again, move on! Set new goals, new projects, and remember you’re with Allaah, nothing should stop you!
6. Wake up Early:
Wake up before #fajr and offer Tahajjud prayer, ❝The Dua made at tahajjud is like an arrow that does not miss its target.❞ — Imaam Ash Shafi (radhi allahu anhu) and work on your ideas and projects, or simply read Qur’an. Getting busy before day break is a definite way to move away from your hardship and overcome challenges. Get most of your ideas/work done in these early hours, these are blessed hours.
7. Hardship is Not Lost:
Remember, Allaah will never forget the injustice/hardship you faced, so don’t worry about seeking revenge or trying to get justice.
“…Allah is not ever unjust to [His] servants.”
[Al-Quran :- 22:10]
In the end, I pray that Allaah (Subhanahu Wa’Tala) removes all your ordeals and hardships, and blesses you all with a good life and helps you remember Him day and night, for “Verily, with remembrance of Allaah, do hearts find rest”.
(Al-Quran: Surah Ar-Ra’d , Verse 28)
