If Allah answered the prayer of Satan even after the latter disobeyed His direct command to bow to Adam....then what about you.
You who feel guilty after indulging in what you know you should stop doing. You who pray in parking lots and random, tucked away corners. You who cry because of your weakness, but continue to wake up, put on a brave face and say Bismillah every single day just because you know you have to. You who cut yourself and then try your hardest again to stop. You who strive to avert your gaze. You who are embarrassed when it looks like you are taking a shower in the sink at work. You who put your phone away with a heavy heart after you have finally broken off what you should have done some time ago.
If Allah could answer the prayer of the most cursed being, then how could you even doubt for a moment that He would not answer the call of His struggling believer?
He loves and appreciates your struggle, even when you border on hating yourself. Don’t underestimate the vastness of His Mercy or the depth of His understanding of your most intimate internal battles. Raise your hands and call to Him and if you’re feeling too broken to say them with your words, whisper them in your heart. Know that He will undoubtedly respond, even if sometimes at first, you don’t quite understand the answer.
Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) taught, “Verily, your Lord is Generous and Shy. If His servant raises his hands to Him, He becomes shy to return them empty.”
