Never forget this moment. This is the moment that you realized your faith is a gift. Alhamdulillah, forever.
And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed – all of them entirely. Then, [O Muhammad], would you compel the people in order that they become believers? And it is not for a soul to believe except by permission of Allah, and He will place defilement upon those who will not use reason. Say, “Observe what is in the heavens and earth.” But of no avail will be signs or warners to a people who do not believe [Yunus, 99-101]

I feel helpless. I cannot do anything for anyone. Allah alone is al-Nāfi‘ and al-Wahhāb
“I hold not for myself [the power of] benefit or harm, except what Allah has willed.” (7.188)
