Assalaamu Alaykum,

It’s easier to give up than to keep trying and struggling. It’s easier to just give in to depression and quit trying. But the reality is nothing worth doing comes easy. And from the Islamic perspective the greater the trial, the greater the reward. And in the end our success or failure in this life has no meaning. What’s meaningful is our success in the next life.

Also deeds are based on intentions.

Even if you fail to do the action, you’ll still be rewarded for the intention! So it’s win win. If you succeed, and your efforts pay off then you’ll complete your project and find success in this life, and the next. If you failed in this life then you’ll still find success in the next.

Subhana Allah!

And this success is much greater and better than anything you can imagine.

Anas bin Malik RA reported that the Prophet PBUH said:  And then that person from amongst the persons of the world be brought who had led the most miserable life (in the world) from amongst the inmates of Paradise. and he would be made to dip once in Paradise and it would be said to him. 0, son of Adam, did you face, any hardship? Or had any distress fallen to your lot? And he would say: By Allah, no, Oh my Lord, never did I face any hardship or experience any distress.

So why give up?

Let us strive, struggle, fall and rise again. Over and over and over, until we attain the reward of Allah SWT.

وصلى الله وسلم على نبينا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين
