For a long time you waited for one door to open, only to find out that another had closed.
You were locked out.
Things became difficult
And you were trapped.
There was no way to reach the places you wanted to explore, the paths you wanted to walk on, the people you wanted to meet and the memories you wanted to create.
Hopeless, tired and afraid- you tried to make it through.
Years later, you realised that closed doors were a blessing.
For every path that you couldn’t walk on, you were guided to a new place. For every opportunity that you missed, you were given several others. For every person that you lost along the way, you were blessed with ones who were meant to stay. For every dream that was shattered, you were given a better reality.
Earlier you did not know, but He knew.
And even today, you might not know. But He knows. He knows what is best for you. And He will help you make it through.
But it may well be that you hate a thing the while it is good for you, and it may well be that you love a thing the while it is bad for you: and God knows, whereas you do not know.” (Quran 2:216)
May Allaah accept it from you and us. Aameen
