WITH EVERY TRIAL, A SOLUTION:
So whatever trials we are going through, we should know that we have already been told about this by Allah (swt) in the Quran. But we are not left alone with all the trials and difficulties. Allah (swt) gives us the way out.
“Patiently, then, persevere – for the Promise of Allah is true, and ask forgiveness for your faults, and celebrate the praises of your Lord in the evening and in the morning.” ~Chapter 40, Verse 55
No one will be granted such goodness except those who exercise patience and self-restraint, none but persons of the greatest good fortune.
~ Chapter 41, Verse 35
We should always remember that our wealth— our family, our children, our wives and our status— is a test from Allah (swt). Allah (swt) says
Your wealth and your children are only a trial (fitnah). And Allah – With Him is a great reward (Paradise). ~ Chapter 64, Verse 15
ALL TESTS FROM ALLAH:
Everything that we have in this world is a test from Allah (swt). A person is going to continue to be tested throughout his lifetime only to wash off his sins so that on the day of resurrection Allah (swt) puts him in jannah.
Whatever test we are going through in this world, we should remember that it is from Allah (swt) and that these test bring us closer and closer to Jannah, provided we deal with them with patience and perseverance.
THE REWARD OF PATIENCE:
There is a beautiful story about patience in the Holy Quran of Prophet Yusuf A.S.
His brothers threw him into the well, but he was patient and so Allah (swt) raised him out of that well. He ended up in the house of one of the most powerful people of Egypt, but then Allah (swt) tested him again.
The wife of Al Aziz, the finance minister, tried to tempt him, but he was patient. Then Allah (swt) tested him again and threw him into prison. But he was patient for the sake of Allah (swt). And in the end Allah (swt) raised him to a lofty station and he became one of the most powerful people in Egypt. This is the reward of patience.
May Allah (swt) provide each one of us with this beautiful quality— PATIENCE.
