Never ever ask ‘why?’ What right do you have to ask? Allah never guaranteed that this life would be easy. Rather, He gives bigger tests to those with greater levels of Imaan. Take comfort in this. Allah is giving you an opportunity to turn to Him! What a blessing! That He has given you an opportunity to turn to Him! How fortunate are you! Surely, those who turn to Allah again and again and again, they are of the successful ones!
Allah could have left us stranded and wandering. He could have placed us on this earth, with nothing to guide us, doomed for eternity. But through His infinite Mercy, through His love for us, He has given to us His Holy Book, the Qur’aan. He has given us the perfect example to follow, Nabi (SAW). If only we took heed!
Be patient through your troubles and do not question the decree of The Almighty. Remember, your life has already been written. Everything that has happened, that is happening, and that will happen is part of His plan, even if it is not part of your plan. Take comfort in this.
The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said,”Strange is the affair of the Mu’min (the believer), verily all his affairs are good for him. If something pleasing befalls him he thanks (Allah) and it becomes better for him. And if something harmful befalls him, he is patient and it becomes better for him. And this is only for the Mu’min.” [Muslim]
May Allah (SWT) make us of those who are patient through our troubles. You never know, it may be that He is so pleased with our patience through our struggles, He may enter us into Paradise. Ameen!
