Many of us might be going through some struggle in life currently. We might feel defeated, hopeless and as if our backs are against the wall.
If we ever find ourselves in such a state, let us remember the opening verses of Sūrah al-Duhā.
There was a time wherein revelation did not come down to the Prophet ﷺ for a considerable amount of time. The disbelievers capitalized on this moment and used it to dishearten the Prophet ﷺ. The insults hurled towards him ﷺ had an effect on him, as he was still a human being at the end of the day. After some time had passed, Allāh ﷻ revealed the opening verses of Sūrah al-Duhā, consoling the Prophet ﷺ.
These verses serve not only as a means of consolation for the Prophet ﷺ, but for any one of us who may be struggling in life; be it financially, mentally, or physically. Know that Allāh ﷻ is well aware of our situation and no matter how dark the night may seem, the sun will inevitably rise and the darkness will dissipate.
