Remember Abraham was thrown in the fire.
Zakariya had his skin peeled with a metal comb
Ayuub (job) faced years and years of illness
Yaqub (jacob) was separated from his most loved son.
Yousuf was separated from his father, thrown in to a well, imprisoned
Moses was persecuted by the Phaoroh
Jesus was persecuted
Peace be Upon them All
Our Beloved Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wasalam was forced from His beloved Mekkah, children died in infancy, His beloved Uncle Hamza Radhiallahu Anho was martyred, his friends and companions were martyred, His daughters were divorced..
Aasiya Alahis salam was tortured by Phaoroh,
Sumiyyah Radhiallahu Anha was martyred with a spear, she was of old age,
Hajira was left abandoned in the barren land.
So you see we are not alone in facing hardship. Its the practice of Allah that the more beloved you are the more severe the trial. These trials are to elevate us in rank in the eyes of Allah and so we can attain more pease and Allah’s pleasue in the Akhirah.
So never lose heart, keep hope in the mercy of Allah. Allah (God) loves you!
Verily Allah is with the Sabireen.
“With every hardship comes ease.”
If anyones out there worrying their minds off, distressed and sad. Remember every hardship comes with ease.
Think of it in terms of labour pains, etc. The pain is at its strongest just before delivert and then….. its all over, relaxation. The pain is then followed by joy and happiness. Then another test begins t grows up .. but not to worry, hopefully gets married and leaves. So you see every hardship comes and is followed by ease. And those who bare it patiently collect the most fruits.
” Sabr ka Phal Meetha Hai”.
When children are born, they are born born beautiful, pious, stainless and sinless.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we as parents could keep them sinless, Innocent forever?
We should look at the world and realise what things corrupted our souls,
maybe it was our parents, the TV, Our friends, The teachers…
We should then make a firm resolution to protect ourselves and our families,
Allah loves beauty, Allah Loves the pious, Allah loves the Truthful, Allah loves the patient and forbearing, Allah Loves those who forgive and do good unto others. Allah Loves those who remember him constantly. Allah loves those who keep themselves away from sins of the body an heart.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful when gathered on the day of judgement before Allah, If we and our families are the favorites of Allah?
Allah Subhanahu-ta’ala says; “O people of Iman! Save yourself And your families from the fire.” [Surah Tahrim]
Just have to be patient for the new shoots to break through. It’s Allahs Word.
19. إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ خُلِقَ هَلُوعاً – Indeed, mankind was created anxious – Inna al insana khuliqa halooAAa 20. إِذَا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ جَزُوعاً – When evil touches him, impatient – Itha massahu ashsharrujazooAAa 21. وَإِذَا مَسَّهُ الْخَيْرُ مَنُوعاً– And when good touches him, withholding [of it] – Wa-itha massahu alkhayru manooAAa
As wr wb… just read this ayah and a blog on ummyathmeens site its so true what Allah says, when things go wrong for us we cry and mope and like act liek the worlds come crashing down on us (which it may have) calamities do happen and when things go right for us we get carried away with it..
but defo we r impatient, its like we cant waot for our problems to get solved we cant wait for things to fall black in place we cant wait for our headaches and stresses to go. May Allah make us of the patient belivers.
May Allah make us content and like i guess we have things to be always thankful for in life eg Eman Alhumdulillah such a blessing from Allah. A person who has even an iota of Eman will one day be taken out of the hell fire and be put in to Heaven subhanallah – And his heaven will be ten times bigger than the size of this world. A place of peace and tranquility where pople have no headaches or here vain talks and angels will be everywhere wishing them peace. Subhanallah. May Allah through his Grace grant us Jannatul Firdaus.
And May Allah grant us freedom from anxieties and troubles in the sme way he helped the Prophet Ayuub alayhis salams.
Sabr or Shukr – The Worry Stops Here!
Aasiyah, the wife of Fir’own (Pharoah). Her Eeman in Allah thrived under the shadow of someone that said, “I am your Lord, Most High!” When news reached Fir’own of his wife’s Eeman he beat her and commanded his guards to beat her. They took her out in the scalding noon heat, tied her hands and feet and beat her perpetually. Who did she turn to? She turned to Allah! She prayed, “My lord, build for me a home with you in Paradise and save me from Fir’own and his deeds and save me from the transgressing people.”
It was narrated that when she said this, the sky opened for her and she saw her home in Paradise. She smiled. The guards watched astonished, she’s being tortured and she smiles? Frustrated, Fir’own commanded a boulder to be brought and dropped on Aasiyah, to crush her to death. But Allah took her soul before the boulder was brought and she became an example for all the believing men and women till the end of time:
And Allah has set forth an example for those who believe: the wife of Fir’own – when she said, “My Lord, Build for me a home with You in Paradise, and save me from Fir’own and his deeds, and save me from the transgressing disbelieving people.” [Qur’an 66:11]
..because whatever Allah decrees fo us even if we don’t like it and we feel troubled, maybe we lost a beloved, or wealth, a child, maybe its illness or we lose our eyesight. Whatever the trouble may be..if we remind ourselves whatever Allah does is good and if we remember that the reward of patience is Jannah and troubles causes the forgiveness of our sins, Basically theres good in everything that happen to a believer inshallah our anxieties will turn to joy our despondency will turn to joy, Our Hearts will become fuller with the Love of Allah
Allah is Beautiful and his decrees are also beautiful..its just that Allah knows and we don’t know.
All praise is to Allah in all conditions.
