    I feel like I'm being punished.

    Report bad ads?

    I read a text from a friend saying this other friend who I knew has a really good job and drives a nice car. I realised that most of the people i knew are all having better lives than me. They're all either going to university or have jobs. Last yr I was diagnosed with two physical and two mental illnesses. I'm trying my best to be a good muslim. I obviously don't really know these people anymore but a lot of them from what I can remember weren't holy at all. And getting in touch with some of them further solidified my opinion. I just feel like I'm being punished when it comes to careers and having a good future. Whenever I get an interview it either is fake or I don't get it due to racism or I was just invited because of the discrimination act. I really don't know what to do anymore. Last yr I thought things would get better. This yr theres even fewer jobs to apply to. And I'm working on a business idea (but I'm starting to get cold feet, because of everything that's been happening). I thought this yr I'd find a job. I still haven't found anything. I don't know how I'm supposed to cope anymore. I get so upset when I see my acquaintances doing alright and I'm wondering when's my turn?

    Re: I feel like I'm being punished.

    Asslamoalikum sister May you have a good day.
    First thing if they have something but you don’t have it’s okay sister you will get it too when it will be your turn and the turn depends on the right time .. maybe right now it’s not the right time for you or Allah have better plan for you in future life.

    Secondly NEVER EVER COMPARE YOURSELF WITH OTHERS WHO HAVE SOMETHING BETTER THAN YOU COMPARE YOURSELF TO THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE LESS THAN YOU
    Then you will understand that if they are better than you .. then you are better than some others too. As, the more you look down the more you will be thankful for what you have sister.
    May you get what you are praying for.
    May you get it at right time.
    For now be Thankful to Him.

    السلام علیکم ورحمتہ اللہ وبرکاتہ
    Dear sister,
    Everything you mentioned are temporary in this world. For how long will a person drive a nice car? For how long will a person be doing a job? Further, Allah SWT some times test a person's patience who is dearer to Him. Still you will get everything, believe me, but just try to be happy with whatever Allah SWT has decided for you. A few might be looking better to you but remember that more than a million will be more miserable than you. Better are not those who drive a nice car or have a nice job, better are those who have a satisfied and calm life. So try to be happy with whatever you have, you will be always better than others.
    Remember the quote :“He who avoids complaint invites happiness.” Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (RA)

    So always be happy and keep smiling, you will get whatever you want, sooner or later.
    Stay blessed.
