Know that Allah sees your struggles. Know that Allah elevates those with sincerity even with the smallest deed, Know that Allah’s door is never closed and so long as you continue to knock and crawl towards it. Most importantly, remember, Allah loves those deeds that are small and consistent. Often it is those types of deeds and habits that have deeper roots and produce the most benefit in the long run. Allah tells us:“And whatever good you do, Allah knows it.” (Al-Baqarah: 197)So don’t undermine yourself, and don’t underestimate the value of even the smallest efforts. As the great scholar Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah said: “It may happen that you are asleep and the rewards of good deeds are accumulating for you. Whether it be from a poor man you aided, a hungry person you fed, a sad person you made happy, or a distressed person whom you helped. Never belittle the amount of benefit any good deed can have even if it seems small.”Talk to Allah and express your struggles to him.
“And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me.” (2:186)
