It feels like we’re deliberately being held in a permanent state of agitation, as if to cause us utter despair. Somehow we need to find a way to counteract this morass with hopefulness. Perhaps we can seek that contentment the people of old had, despite real hardship and afflictions.

O you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer. Indeed, God is with the patient.

Quran 2:153

“And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?”

From Quran 15:56
