My problem is that when I'm stressed , when I want something(professional goals) , when I have problem , I don't feel very happy , very good, but I'm a good person during that period , I change my bad habits , I pray , I feel very close to God , but in the same time I'm not very happy , and I always promise myself that I will continue that way even when Allah solves the problem . And In the other hand , when Im happy relaxed chill , I don't pray , I forget Allah :( This is why I think I have a lot alot of problems in my life , and Im getting used to it , hopefully I can say that Allah loves me . So , I hope my question is clear and I hope youll help me .

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Allah is Most Kind and Very Merciful, Allah is the Bestower of gifts. You need to remember Allah and thank Him in times of your happiness and exercise patience in times of your hardship. This is key to success in life.

فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُواْ لِي وَلاَ تَكْفُرُونِ

"So remember Me, and I shall remember you; and be grateful unto Me, and deny Me not." (Surah Baqarah 2:152)

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلَاةِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَ الصَّابِرِينَ

"O you who believe, seek help through patience and prayer. Surely, Allah is with those who are patient." (Surah Baqarah 2:153)

May Allah bring you closer to Him. Ameen.

And Allah knows best
