Do you know the prayers for motivation? Prayers are how we Muslims draw close to Allah. During times of sadness and grief, Muslims seek comfort and guidance in the words of Allah in the Quran.
Allah tells us to bear trials of life with patience and through prayer. When we genuinely understand the importance of prayer, we easily encounter our daily life problems and difficulties. Dozens of verses tell Muslims to be patient and determined in difficult times of their lives.
There are many prayers for motivation. Allah revealed the Holy Quran to Muhammad (S.A.W) because we recite Quran daily and pray to Allah even for a small thing.
In Holy Quran, Allah mentioned, “Seek Allah’s help with patient perseverance and prayer. It is indeed hard except for those who are humble.” (2:45).
Holy Prophet (S.A.W) said, “Even if your sins were to reach the clouds in the sky, I would forgive you’ (Sunan al-Tirmidhi).
1. Don’t lose hope
Muslims should remain in a positive state of mind, whatever the circumstances are. Many Quranic verses tell us to never be in despair because Allah is the creator of all things, and he has the power to do whatever he wants by saying it to “Be”.
Allah is Helper, guardian, and those who trust him and remain positive will bear any trouble or difficulty. In Holy Quran, Allah said: “So lose not heart, nor fall into despair, for you will be superior if you are true in faith” (Surah Al-Imran 3:139).
When something bad happens, you should be patient by reminding yourself that hardship comes with ease and that Allah gives you relief after a certain point of hardship.
2. When there is hardship, there is the ease
We face countless difficulties during our whole life. There are many Duas for motivation and ease of hardships. In Quran, “For indeed, with hardship (will be) ease.” (94:5).
This verse is consolation and motivation for Muslims and boosts up the morals of believers when they are going through dark times in their lives. Allah declares beautifully that indeed with hardship, there is ease. This is the promise of Allah that enlightens the hearts, so Muslims should avoid negative aspects and be hopeful for better results ahead.
There is always a solution to every problem. Your problems are tiny as compared to Allah’s mercy. The ummah suffering worldwide should remind themselves of Allah’s promise and stick to the right path.
3. Allah is with patient
Allah always listens to patients and waits for Him to solve their matters. The Holy Quran mentioned, “O you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer. Indeed, Allah is with the patient” (2:153).
We face many challenges, difficulties, and sufferings in this world, but we have to be patient because Allah Almighty loves those who have patience in a difficult time.
Patience is as light and linked with hope and trust in Allah.
No doubt, when you try hard but fail, you are trying to understand the reason for failure because you feel hopeless. Difficulties sometimes make it hard for you to continue your struggle but remember that Allah is with the patient. Allah reminds us many times in the Quran that: “There is no faith for a person who doesn’t have patience.”
4. Allah is with You
Allah knows what’s happening in your life, Allah knows your struggles and hardships, so call him, cry in front of him, Allah always listens to you. He is your only hope. In Holy Quran said, “He is with you wherever you are. For Allah is All-Seeing of what you do” (57:4).
This beautiful verse reminds us that Allah is always with us even when alone or in a crowd, isolated or out walking. Allah always watches us, supports us, and listens to our problems.
So if you need anything, ask Allah; if you desire anything, ask Allah because he is the guardian, and he provides you with anything you need.
5. Allah will guide you
Many verses are the antidote to depression. Depressed people feel that nobody could be in a worse situation. We look at people in far worse situations than ourselves when we feel hopeless and depressed. Look at the orphans, and they have no family or loved ones and nobody to care for them.
Besides them, we have families and parents who love us, there is a roof over our heads and various foods on the table, and we still think we’re in a bad situation.
This Verse in Holy Quran gives determination to people not to feel less and have Trust in Allah. “And He found you unaware of the way then He guided you” (93:7).
How prayers Motivate you
Sometimes you feel a void in your heart, which doesn’t feel right. You don’t want to see your friends or family; you want to be alone; those are the times when you lose hope. Going through dark times must be difficult for you; in those times, you should seek help by prayers that motivate you and set you on the right path. Allah is the one who can change your heart and brings you to light.
Life can bring both happiness and sorrow, so we all need motivation from time to time to get ourselves going. It is Allah who created us, and he is the one who knows our nature better than anyone else. Allah provides all the answers to our problems in the Quran and demands us to seek his guidance through Quran, Hadith, and Sunnah, be on the right path and promise that we human beings would never get disappointed by him.
