One of my favourite verses in the Quran is ‘verily with hardship comes ease’. There is so much peace and reassurance in its meaning, it’s almost like Allah is telling you that no matter how bad it gets – life gets better. At the end of every storm there is a rainbow. Just because today isn’t great, doesn’t mean tomorrow won’t be. Life is quite funny in that way, to understand the sweet taste of happiness – you need to go through the discomfort and the trials. This is your journey, filled with its unique blend of bends and dead ends – so no matter how difficult it gets, feel reassured in the fact that after every difficulty comes peace.
