Its a good idea to remember the Muftisays community in our duas in general. We never know what another person may be going through. You never know who's dua may be accepted.

May Allah ease the sister's worries and hardships. Ameen.

“The most in their suffering among the people are the prophets, then the best, then the (next) best. One is afflicted in accordance with his faith. If his faith is firm, his affliction is hard, and if his faith is weak, his affliction is light.

Indeed, one would be so much subjected to adversity until he walks among the people without any sins.” (Ahmad and At-Tirmidhi)

Taken from the "Do not be depressed" telegram channel:

Quote:
Ibn al Qayyim (rahimahullah) said:

“Surely in the heart of every human being, there is a sense of scattering which cannot be brought back together except by turning to Allah. And in the heart of every human being there is a sense of loneliness which cannot be put out except by being close to Allah. And in the heart of every human being there is anxiety and there is a sense of fear and unease which cannot be removed except by fleeing to Allah. And in the heart of every human being there is a sense of guilt and regret which cannot be removed except by being pleased and content with Allah.”

I think in UK it's much better than other places. One example is the injustice happening in other parts of the world for example in UAE it's become a major source of government funding to fine up to 3000 AED for not just not wearing a mask but if you don't wear it properly. Even if you're alone in your car.

Other 3rd world places include beatings but Alhamdulillah we do have a say (sort of) in UK even about lockdown when we're out. In my area you can't feel lockdown. It's more in the media than on the streets where I am. I'm grateful when I am told about other places (by the ones living there and not from what I read).

So for me what's effecting me is the impact on society and what it's doing to others. For me personally it's normal and the lockdown gave me one of the best Ramadhans in 2019 I've had since I was a kid so it's not all bad.

“The amount of reward is in accordance with the amount of suffering. When Allah loves some people, He tries them (with affliction). He who then is content (with Allah’s decree) has achieved the acceptance (of Allah), and he who is dissatisfied (with Allah’s decree) will attain the anger (of Allah).” (At-Tirmidhi)

This is how some have coped with the lockdown. Some got married in small groups, others in larger groups and so many got married online.

Zoom Nikkah :)

I've missed the Nikkah of a few close relatives but managed to be part of it virtually. Not the same but all the best to everyone.

I was more miffed when my name was taken off walima feast invites as they had to cut down on the numbers!

Don't worry I wasn't offended nor cut off family ties as they really had no choice.

I know some relatives postponed weddings until we could get back to normal but it didn't really happen so they thought might as well get it over and done with.
