To the brokenhearted, you are not alone in the inevitable ocean of life. That’s why the difficulties in the life of great people explain why you shouldn’t be brokenhearted.
It Has Happened In The Past
You should have heard it several times ‘Everything that’s happening currently has happened before.
And that’s true.
Living under the seven heavens and below the seven earths is a great blessing.
However, it doesn’t matter how much belief you have in Allah, nor the amount of time you spend worshipping Him. You are still a victim in the court of difficulties.
Let face it, we all face uncertain time. When overthinking and sadness is all our heartbeat.
We all have difficult moments we face.

And Allah knows best.
