As Salamu Alaykum,

I feel like Allah is testing me, and I feel like there are so many tests at once. I've been rejected from my top 2 school choices and had to settle for a school I didn't want to go to, I wasn't allowed to get any cords/sashes or didn't receive any awards to wear along with my graduation day, and I mustered up all my courage today to see if there was anything I could do but I couldn't. I prayed so much and so hard and for so long and fasted to get into my dream school and I did everything I could do get in but in the end, even with how much I prayed and how many times I asked Allah for me to be accepted into the university, I was still rejected. Every time I feel a bit happy recently I just slip back into a state of anger and sadness, and I can't get rid of this feeling. I don't want to ask Allah why but it really hurts. I don't want to question Allah, nor will I, but it still hurts. I've tried to move on but it's extremely difficult. I feel like I really disappointed Allah somehow and He is not happy with me. Even as I am typing this I am crying so hard. What happened to my prayers/duas?

How do I get rid of this feeling and keep getting closer to Allah? I don't want this feeling of regret and sorrow to take over my life and keep me away from Islam.

Wa alaykum Asalaam .First I'd like to say I am sorry that your having such a hard time. And I know that it is not easy . The truth is Allah Subhana Wa ta'ala knows what is best. Have you thought that maybe it is a good thing that all this is happening ? Really that something good will come out of all of this. Trust Allah Subhana WA ta'ala , and keep praying . Be thankful for all you have. I know that there are people out there that do not get that chance to even go to school. Plus who do you think is wanting you to be angry and sad and most of all Not grateful for the favors bestowed on you .... Shayton of course! Keep your head up and Insha Allah things will get better. but only if Allah wants it for you will it happen and that is something you should be okay with :) I hope this helps you Insha Allah . May Allah subhana wa ta'ala guide us and keep us on the straight path:)

ALLAH SUBHNA WAT'ALA KNOWS WHAT THE BEST FOR MAN IS.maybe your choice of university is not good for you that is why GOD DOESNT WANTS YOU TO GAIN ADMISSION TO IT.IT MAY BE THE DAY YOU WILL GAIN ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY THAT YOU WILL DIE OR ENCOUNTER ANY AILMEMT AND MAY BE ALLAH SUBHANA WAT'ALA DOES WANTS YOU TO DIE NOW OR DOESNT WANT ANY SICKNESS FOR YOU SO THAT YOU CAN LIVE LONG AND SERVE HIM. It may be.just go to any institution you get admission to.OR MAYBE ALLAH SUBHANA WAT'ALA WANTS TO TEST YOU THAT IS WHY HE MADE IT LIKE THAT. ALLAH SUBHANA WAT'ALA KNOWS BEST.
