  1. Salam, I don't have any Ayahs or Hadiths to give you but I can say a bit of my experience, in hopes it might help you in some way. Without getting too personal, and without trying to sound arrogant but I used to be very religious when I was younger. After a few life events happened that I struggled to accept ... I began to have anxiety and ptsd. All of which made my immune system weaker and I developed chronic fatigue syndrome and other autoimmune issues. I even reached a stage where I didn't want to live anymore. I kept asking Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to take my life away. I started to go away from religion. Don't get me wrong, I would still pray and fast, but I would just do the wajib. And that's it. But then SubhanAllah, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) made my health get worse. I wasn't able to work like I used to anymore. My friends didn't like me anymore. My family kept talking bad about me. Nobody understood me. I felt so alone. And the only person that understood me was dead. Slowly, I started to realise that the only One I had was Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I started talking to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) as a friend and SubhanAllah, He (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) allowed me to get these feelings that made me understand why I went through all of this. It was all so I could return back to Him (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Because even though I'm not fully healed yet, I'm at peace with where I am. The point of what I'm trying to say, is that maybe you should reflect on your life. Be honest with yourself and try to break down the events of your life. See why this is happening. I'm not saying it's easy, healing my past is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. (And I’m still on this journey) And that's how I interpret the Ayah 2:286. This life is all a test, but that doesn't mean it's going to be an easy test. You just have to figure out what the tests are in your life and try to work through them with Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). And trust me, if you truly try to connect with Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), He will respond to you in feelings. (It's hard to explain how but you will understand when it happens) May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) help you on your life journey and make you content with any test that comes your way, InshaAllah Ya Rab.
  2. Salam, I hope everyone is doing well, InshaAllah. What are some small things you do during the day that bring you closer to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and that make a big difference to your day? For example, saying Bismillah before getting up or starting things.
