Correspondence of Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahimahullah) with his Daughter – Letter Two

“The distress you are experiencing always plays through my mind, even though it is not something to be distressed about. Illness and hurdles will always remain with a person. In every decision of Allah Ta‘ala there is certainly wisdom, whether we see it or fail to see it. Our duty as a servant is to continue supplicating to Allah Ta‘ala for goodness with patience and gratitude.

Rather than becoming distressed, continue turning to Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa. Its benefits are many. If outwardly we do not see any signs of the du‘aa being accepted, then too we should never ever entertain the thought that the du‘aa has not been accepted, for insha-Allah it has definitely been accepted. Its effect has already taken place in whichever form it may be, even though it remains hidden from our eyes.”
