At times of difficulty we may hasten to give up all hope. We may utter words
that we normally wouldn’t. Or we may simply contemplate the immense situation that we are placed in…
‘Why am I being trailed like this?’
‘What did I do to deserve this?’
As humans we tend to forget.
We forget that our creator and savior informed us of the test that will befall us as Mu’mins, believers.
Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: “We believe,” and will not be tested. And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allah will certainly make it known the truth of those who are true, and will certainly make it known the falsehood of those who are liars. [Surah Al Ankabut 29:2-3]
Ok so most of us know that we will be faced with hardships and tests, but we still have the mentality that we are being faces with something that is far too… unbearable.
Well let’s pause there for a second. Who knows more about your capabilities, you or your Creator, Allah?
Of course you’ll answer Allah.
So why question?
Allah does not burden a soul except [with that within] its capacity. [2:286]
So when such thoughts enter to your mind,
And take heed. For truly there is wisdom behind everything.
“And it may be that you hate a thing though it is good for you, and love a thing though it is bad for you. Allah (Swt) Knows and you know not.” [2:216]
