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.
