“My Lord, indeed I am, for any good that you bestow on me, very needy.” (Surah Al Qasas, 28:24)
The words of this dua are of desperation, words that reflect how lost Prophet Musa (AS) felt, so much so that he can’t even bring himself to ask for something specific, but he still asks and begs for *any* good that Allah SWT can send down upon him.
Imagine his situation; scared, remorseful, fugitive, alone. What did he have with him? What could he ask for? He arrived in a completely new place amongst unknown people with no direction to pursue. And that’s when Allah SWT inspires him with these beautiful words.
Problems afflict every one of us. It’s our choice whether we want to be defined by those problems or be defined by our goals. As a Muslim, our motto is إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ [You (Allah) alone we worship and You (Allah) alone we seek help with], this is what should define us and drive us throughout our lives.
Let this be a chance to reflect that every difficulty is an opportunity to be grateful to Almighty God for the blessings.
May Allah make things easy for us, relieve our worry and distress, and make us steadfast in adhering to the straight path. And Allah knows best.
