This made me smile because often when we are in trouble we feel our problems are overwhelming. On a scale we feel they are greater than what we can handle. But indeed Allah helps us double or triple or whatever we may need in the end.
I know even myself I find it sometimes hard during dark times to let go and hand my problems over to Allah. But I am often reminded when I do so that in the end things will always work out for the best. For indeed we can plan but Allah is the best of planners. And he does know what is best for us. So even if we don't understand why something is happening right now at this moment in times to follow a greater plan will Inshallah be revealed.
So as Ramadan approaches remember this. Like any other time of the year you will have troubles during Ramadan. Life doesn't just stop because we are fasting especially for us who live in Western societies that don't treat the month of Ramadan differently than any other month when it comes to things like our jobs and schools. But keep faith strong, keep your head up and stay even more focused on the fact that even when you are weak Allah is always strong and strong for you.
