For You

I pray you find comfort in every situation. That God guides your difficulties and brings you ease in your hardships. I pray that fear, anxiety and doubt  are eliminated from your heart; that God guides you towards righteousness; that He blesses you with great people in your life who will remind you of Him and bring you closer to Him. I pray that He gives you success from means you would have never expected, and that He grants you ultimate happiness. The type of happiness that keeps you up at night from excitement. And I pray that this happiness extends to the akhira.

To everyone reading this, this is for you. Please share it, spread the love, and make this duaa for others.
