Seek help from Allah

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.

“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 words of desperation, words that reflect how lost Prophet Musa ( AS) feeling, 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 does he have with him? What can he ask for? He arrives in a completely new place amongst unknown people and has 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.
