Sometimes things happen to us that break our hearts. Sometimes these things cause us pain and make us wonder why God is choosing to punish us. Sometimes these things are in a never-ending line of other bad things that have happened to us. Sometimes we think that we will never recover from heartbreak.
But know that Allah is just testing us, to see how we will react and what we will do. Will you lose your faith in God? Or will you be pushed closer to Him as a result?
These tests from Allah are not designed to fail us but to strengthen us. Just because God has put an obstacle in our path or removed something or someone that we love dearly does not mean that He does not care about us or that He hates us. We do not always get what we want. And the things that we want and don’t get were never meant for us to begin with.
As we go through these tests, our faith and our belief in Him should become stronger, not weaker. For we should always maintain the belief that Allah knows best; if He is choosing to take something away or deny us something, there is a reason. We are mere humans and cannot even begin to fathom the plans of Allah.
Recovering from heartbreak might take awhile, and you may think that Allah has abandoned you in this recovery process. But be patient and keep praying. God has heard you and He will reward you for your faith.
