In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

I have to admit now, the Quran is my compass. I was looking for a little bit of healing from it. I just randomly scrolled through the Quran index on my phone and I landed on one of the chapters. Then I scrolled through the chapter and landed on the verse, “We gave these to another people to inherit”.

Somehow I feel comforted. I think it solidifies my reconciliation with the fact that what I want is intended for others instead. So I have to let go of my desire.

Out of curiosity, I read the verses before and after the one that jumped to me. The section was actually talking about the people of Israel who were suppressed by Pharoah. They had to leave their home behind, including their personal effects and cross the Red Sea to escape his tyranny.

We all have to make sacrifices in order to attain something better whether we see it immediately or not.

So I guess I’m not meant to feel love in the form I desire but others are. So I just gotta take one for the team.

And Allah knows best. – MM
