Being pleased with Allah Ta’ala in whichever condition one may be

Q: I have it incredibly difficult. I do not know where my future will bring me. I have now waited about 7 months to get into the university. In January, there was a new class that started. but I still did not get admission to medical school. I have sent them emails and they have said that when some students quit they will be releasing new offers but only for some students (they have the list of them). I want this more than anything else. I want to do this for my parents I want them to be proud of me. But I feel that everything seems impossible and very difficult now. When I was in high school I had very good grades but at the end of the school year my grades went down. I do not know how, we complained but the school didn’t help me. All my other friends got admission some in Norway and in other countries, they are studying and they are happy. They have a future. I have not told anyone this, not even my parents. I am a loser, I am not studying something. I have worked hard for this for so many years. School ends in June and I must wait two years. I can not waste so many years. Please how can my hajat get fulfilled? Any wazifa or dua I can do?


A: A mu’min in whichever condition he may be should be pleased with Allah Ta’ala. If you do not find yourself progressive in a certain field, then move on to something else. Place your trust and reliance in Allah Ta’ala and seek His assistance. 

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
