Often times we forget to express empathy to others when they go through difficulties.
We feel as though giving advice quoting Qur'an and Ahadith should be helpful enough.
No doubt it is helpful. However, it should be done with a lot of heart.

It really helps when the person in distress truly feels heard.
It helps when they feel you understand what they are going through.
It's actually emotionally supportive when they are listened to for long duration with a non-judgmental ear of empathy.

Especially as the perceived "religious" individuals, we need to sometimes step back from giving too much advice to others.
It takes time for people to heal. We need to embrace them and uplift them with a lot of compassion.

Wallaahu a'lam.
