10 Comforting Verses From The Quran That Feels Like A Hug

10 Comforting Verses From The Quran That Feels Like A Hug

As human beings, we are bound to encounter tests, distress and uncertainty. These challenges serve as a means for Allah SWT to express His love and guide us back to Him. However, in times of trials it is natural for us to yearn for reassurance and for someone to say, “Hey, everything’s going to be okay.” But isn't that what Allah SWT has always said to us in the Quran? 

When you are unsure of which way to go, seek comfort in the words of Allah SWT. 

Remember that not all tests that come our way are bad; in fact, most of these trials are necessary for our growth—but only if you see it in a positive perspective. Trust that Allah SWT is always near, even closer than our jugular veins, and that He will always provide a way. 

Whatever you’re going through at the moment, I pray that Allah SWT makes it easy for you. Here are 10 verses from the Quran that serve as a beacon of light and optimism through challenging times.
