Salam alikum, im a student in a school where all my classmates are christians and they have nothing in common with me.i have been raised up in an islamic country and have totally different ideas and im different from them. When i sit with them they usually talk about sex , boys, church and stuffs that I'm not interested in because that is not my culture and religion , and even they are avoiding me. I have alot problems in school because im always alone and i suffer this lonliness so much that i now after 5 months have been depressed. I am in a very bad situation so i tought i should change school in order to maybe find some girls who are like myself but unfortantly the books wich we study and the school system does not match with other schools and that will create alot of other problems. I will have to study alot at home to reach the level they have in other schools. I really need help and i always pray for almighty Allah to help me but i dont know why my prayers doesn't get accepted.plz give me advice my dear brothers and sisters. what i should do ?im in a very bad situation i have lost myself and its distroying me inside .

Salamu-Alaikum.

'My prayer don't get accepted.'

You can't expect Allah to answer your prayer when you're saying things like that. You are being Hasty. Allah expects patience and belief and trust in him. You have to look at this from Allah's point of view, which not possible, let's face it, but what I'm trying to say is: Allah knows EVERYTHING. He knows the good from the bad and the bad from the good and the dead from the living and the living from the dead. Allah has all power. Things we don't know. Maybe, he's not answering your prayer because it's not best for you. Don't lose hope, because Allah says in Surah Ghafar.

"And your lord has stated: Make du'a to me, I will (of a surety) respond to you." -Surah Ghafar

But Look at what this Hadith says too. It is narrated by Al-Tirmidhi:

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said: "The du'a of any worshipper will not continue to be responded to, as long as he does not ask for a sin or breaking ties of kinship, and as long as he is not hasty."

It was asked, "O Messenger of Allah? And what does it mean to be hasty?"

He (صلى الله عليه و سلم) responded: "A worshipper says. 'I have prayed and prayed, and I don't see that it will be accepted', so he gives up hope of being answered, and leaved du'a".

In Islam, I don't believe that prayers are not accepted. Allah listens to All of us, and does the best for all of us. Sometimes, what we ask for is not the best.

I completely understand that what you're going through is a hard time. But here's a way to look at things. You're on the right path, and they are not. They can go to church, and talk about boys and sex as much as they like, but Allah has promised the believers Paradise, so a life time of patience is way better to get Paradise than trying to make friends with people you clearly can't trust.

And You are not alone. I feel alone So many times, just like you, because sometimes I don't fit in with the ways of my family. I wear a hijab, like the full, head to toe clothing, but no one else in my family does. My little sister wears a scarf, but still. She'll wear jeans and tops. And my older sister does neither. Sometimes, I've felt lonely, because they do things I refuse to do. But the one thing that keeps me going is that in this world, if there is no one pleased with me and there is no one standing with me. Allah will never leave me alone. He's the only ONE that will never go anywhere. This whole world could go upside down, but Allah will still be there, forever.

It takes a little patience and hope in Allah to get him to love you, and listen to you.

"Allah says, I am just as My slave thinks I am, (i.e. I am Able to do for him what he thinks I can do for him) and I am with him if he remembers Me. If he remembers Me in himself, I too, remember him in Myself; and if he remembers Me in a group of people, I remember him in a group that is better than them; and if he comes one span nearer to Me, I go one cubit nearer to him; and if he comes one cubit nearer to Me, I go a distance of two outstretched arms nearer to him; and if he comes to Me walking, I go to him running." (Sahih Al-Bukhâri, Vol.9, Hadîth No.502).

So don't let loneliness upset you. I know, easier said than done. But really. Allah will listen to you. I am completely sure that he will answer your prayer, just have hope that he will, and don't lose it by saying 'my prayers don't get accepted'.
