But if you lose Allah, you find no replacement.

"Allah I've lost hope from anyone except from you, and I'm disappointed of everyone except of you, and I'm weakened by my dependence on everyone except on you! So Allah, please do not expel me from your side! If you did, then there are no power and no strength except in you, Allah! Whoever has asked you, and then you have deprived him? (None). Whoever has called you and you discarded him? (None).”

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.
