I used to hear inspiring and cheerful news and stories about my country and the globe around me a few years ago. However, as time progressed, negativity and depression began to spread throughout the planet.
The fact that we are transitioning from optimism to pessimism is not a healthy sign. There will be no dread of hopelessness when we believe in Allah Almighty and His Last Messenger because Islam offers optimism, trust-building, and motivation.
Studying the Holy Scripture, "The Holy Quran," teaches foresightedness and self-awareness. In Chapter 39, Verse 53, Allah says, "My slaves, who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful".
Further in the Holy Quran, Allah mentions the conversation of Jacob with his sons in Chapter 12, Verse 87, “O my sons! Go you and enquire about Yusuf (Joseph) and his brother, and never give up hope of Allah’s Mercy. Certainly no one despairs of Allah’s Mercy, except the people who disbelieve".
Therefore, having faith in Allah and fighting against difficult times is one of the believers' highest qualities.
