This place is designed to break your heart
You have to realise that everything that is happening is from Allah and that you don’t get depressed. If you forget about Allah, you end up getting depressed and begin thinking that things are black and gloomy. No – we believe in happy endings. No matter how bleak it looks out there, it’s dunya. Dunya means the lowest place; we’re on the bottom and there’s only up from here. This place is designed to break your heart. It was designed that way. So if you’re looking to be happy, in the dunya, you’re in the wrong place.
— Shaykh Hamza Yusuf
