The most silliest thing happened for me to realise that Allah is there for me. It was in the middle of year 10, on a Friday. I did all my IT work and saved it on my USB stick. That night I thought I’d do some extra work on it since I had nothing else to do, and I couldn’t find my USB stick. I looked everywhere, in my bag, folders books everything and started panicking. I then realised this is all because I didn’t used to pray, I’d always listen to music or something. I felt sick of myself and went to do Wudhu and prayed Fajr Zuhr Asr and Maghrib as Qada and prayed Isha Salaah as well. I cried at the end and begged Allah to forgive me, I wanted to go into school the next day (it’s open on Saturdays) and look for it in the IT room. I was begging Allah to help me with it. It had ALL my work on it. Science coursework, Media Studies coursework – worth over a year’s worth of work, history coursework. Everything, nothing was backed up. I felt so stupid. I couldn’t go to school the next day because of family stuff so I felt so so so depressed, but kept up with prayers. Then, on Monday morning I went 30 minutes early and ran up to the IT department. I remember I didn’t even bother knocking before going in Miss’s office lmao. I told her how I lost it and stuff and she took me the classroom, and she had it on her desk. I was so grateful that she found it and kept it safe Alhamdulillah. I hugged her and from then, I just had a strange feeling, I felt it in my chest. That knowledge that Allah REALLY exists was there, I could feel it. I knew He would never give up on me, and that was the day I came into Islam. I’d say, from when I was a child until year 10, I wasn’t really a believer. I didn’t have faith. I just did things because everyone else was doing it. But, that was the day I found my Allah, and I promised myself I’m never going to let go. That year during Ramadan, I started watching lectures and I couldn’t help but cry. That’s when I left music and everything else behind me and moved on. So yeah, that’s my story.
Please keep me in your du’as in sha Allah, and please keep the rest of our Ummah in your du’as too! From what I shared with you, I hope you learnt that ONE du’a can change everything.
