There's something I really want and I know that it's like near impossible for me to get it. I've done all that I can to be "accepted" in it, but I know that I should be making more dua. The problem is that a part of me just feels like "There's no way my dua will be accepted. It's just too hard". I don't know what to do about that. It's like whenever I try to put my faith and trust in Allah, shaitaan distracts me. I'm finding it hard to do so now and I feel soooooo lost sometimes. Please advise me.
And there is nothing in the Heavens and nor in the Earth that can render Allâh incapable ” (Faatir 35:44).”
And your Lord says, ‘Call upon Me; I will respond to you.’ Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell [rendered] contemptible,”(Qur’an, 40:60).
"When my servants ask you concerning me, (tell them) I am indeed close (to them). I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calls on me." [2:186]
Nuh prayed, "Lord, help me; I am defeated". (10) We opened the gates of the sky and water started to pour down. (11) We caused the earth to burst forth with springs so that the waters could come together for a predestined purpose. (12)We carried him, (Nuh), on a vessel built with boards fixed together with nails, (13) which floated on the water before Our very eyes. [Sura 54: Al Qamar]
And [mention] Zakariya, when he called to his Lord, ‘My Lord, do not leave me alone [with no heir], while you are the Best of Inheritors.’ So We responded to him, and We gave to him Yahya, and amended for him his wife. Indeed, they used to hasten to good deeds and supplicate Us in hope and fear, and they were to Us humbly submissive.” (Qur’an, 21:89-90)
“And (remember) Ayub, when he cried to his Lord, “Truly distress has seized me, but You are the Most Merciful of those that are merciful.” (Qur’an, 21:83)
Allah responded in the most amazing way: He granted him a new family (double the size of the family he'd had) and also cured him.
“Then We heard his prayer and removed that adversity from which he suffered, and We gave him his household (that he had lost) and the like thereof along with them, a mercy from near Us, and a remembrance for the worshipers.” (Qur’an, 21:84)
“Or who listens to the soul distressed when it calls on Him, and who relieves its suffering” (NAML, 62)
