But if you lose Allah, you find no replacement.
I think this supplication does not need further explanation. The way Allah has created this universe, a human is bound to get disappointed from anyone except Allah. Husband disappoints wife. Son disappoints mom. Boss disappoints worker. My laptop disappoints me because it does not perform as I expect. You will find disappointment everywhere, in everything, except Allah.
Disappointment is not the end of the world, since we know we have a source of hope and a dignified purpose of life. The source of eternal hope is Allah and the dignified purpose of life is worshiping none but Allah alone. If today I lose my computer, Allah can replace me with another. If today, I lose anything, Allah can replace me with something better.BUT IF YOU LOSE ALLAH, YOU WILL FIND NO REPLACEMENT.
