Shaytaan's Greatest weapon

Despair is one of Shaytan’s greatest weapons. If we are in debt, Shaytan tries to get us to despair of getting out of debt. If we’re ill, he tries to convince us to despair of getting well. If we have committed sins, he whispers to us to despair of ALLAAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA'ALA)’s mercy and the possibility of forgiveness. He tries to make us despair of our futures, despair of our salvation, and fail to see the beauty in our lives.

ALLAAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA'ALA), on the other hand, offers us forgiveness and true blessings. ALLAAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA'ALA) offers us hope. Hope is not wishing on a star, or daydreaming. Hope is a real thing, because it’s a part of trusting ALLAAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA'ALA). After all, prayer is all about hope.

The Qur'aan tells us that with every difficulty comes ease. Hope is an acknowledgment of that reality, that things will get better, and a time of ease will come.
When life becomes hard, we need to see through eyes of hope, not eyes of despair.

"Say: “My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of ALLAAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA'ALA). Truly ALLAAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA'ALA) forgives all wrong actions. HE is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.”
[Qur'aan 39:53]
