We all need the reminder that Allah is always there waiting for us to tell Him our problems and ask for His help. But ever so often we turn first, or in some cases solely, to His creations who like us are weak and flawed in so many ways. It is undeniable that the best way of making decisions is to first perform the Istikharah prayer and then to do musyawarah, ie, to consult others for advise. However, these 'others' who we consult really need to be carefully selected for various reasons which i don't feel like specifying.
Be careful who you open up to. Only few are really there to help you. Others are merely curious or in some cases intending to add salt to your wounds.
Allah is never far away.
He's the only One who can guide our every step and show us the way.
The next time you recite 'Ih Dhinas Sirro Ttol Mustakeem' (Guide us to the straight path- apologies for spelling errors in the Arabic transcription) in your prayer, take time to immerse yourself in its meaning and in asking for His guidance.
