if you think about the beauty of the simple words Allah is greater than your worries, Allah is greater than your grief, Allah is greater than your obstacles, Allah is is greater than your ease, Allah is greater than all of those things and the way that we say that every single time not just when we start our prayers, but every motion that we make in prayer. We remind ourselves Allah Akbar God is great.
And we constantly say that throughout the day what that does is instead of the shadow of the concern and the challenge that lies ahead, it minimizes the Shadow and it causes you to focus on the enormity of Allah is all-encompassing greatness.
The obstacle that’s ahead of you while it may be an obstacle doesn’t need to be given a shadow focus on the size of that obstacle. as big as you think the obstacle, is remember Allah llahu Akbar, God is greater than that obstacle. – Shaykh Omar Suleiman
