A little prayer for the strugglers (I’m with you):
The Prophet (sa) would say every morning and evening, “Allah, I seek solace in you from hamm and hazn.”
Hamm means things we’ve experienced in the past that sadden and worry us. Hazin are things in the future that scare us and sadden us. Allah is al-Qadīr and al-Rahīm.
May Allah lift the hamm and hazin from us, relieve our burdens and grant us the faith to soar above dark times. Stay strong and know that there are others going through what you are going through, even Imams and activists. You are not alone!
With faith, worship and community, you can do it - with God’s help, you got this. “Indeed, Allah’s help is (constantly) close.”
Even though I don’t know you, consider my prayers as a crutch with you at every tear and sad feeling. My prayers are not strong - I’m in need of yours more. But everyone holding on to their faith amongst the rocky seas of life, I love you for the sake of Allah and I’m happy to share in the struggle with you. Have a great Sunday!"
