Notice the Pause

Notice the pause.
Notice where the verse ends.

“Whoever is mindful of Allah ﷻ, He will make a way out for them.”

(Al-Talaq 65:3)

We’re always told to have hope in God. Trust in God. Be conscious of God. Hold onto God in the moments most difficult to you. God will provide a way.

And just like that, in a verse and surah which discusses divorce – the most difficult of personal circumstances – Allah ﷻ commands us to act honourably, promising He will find a better way for us.

Then it ends. Full stop. The verse ends. That chapter of pain is now closed.

“…and provide for them from sources they could never imagine. And whoever puts their trust in Allah, then He ˹alone˺ is sufficient for them.”

(Al-Talaq 65:4)

A new breath. A new beginning. The blessings comes.

Things you could have never even have imagined in that moment of difficulty begin to open up for you in the space of a single breath. They surround you from every angle, in ways you could never have imagined.

Yet, you had to wait that moment for it to come. You had to close that chapter of pain in the most beautiful of ways; trust in God and take the high road. Demonstrate your patience in Allah’s ﷻ affairs in the most difficult of moments. You had to change the lenses you see things with to observe His ﷻ new blessings for you which you could not see before. The verse is now complete. That chapter in your life is now closed. Closure has come. Now Allah’s ﷻ blessings can flood in.

Notice the pause.
A single pause between two verses carries an ocean of meaning.
