Trials & Tribulations? Nope, they are blessings 🙂
Each one of us is given different trials by Allah
Some are tested with lack of properties, while others are tested with the very properties they have. Some are tested with hardship in achieving their dreams, while others are tested with the very living of their dreams.
No matter who you are, remember that this life is a test. A real test, and the hardest. It will decide your place in the Hereafter, FOREVER. Scary, huh?
Yet, how lucky we are to have Allah, the most Merciful and Forgiving. With every test He gives, there are blessings in it. You just need to take a deep breath, and believe in Him. Since every test comes from Him, every solution should come from Him too. And know that trials are signs of His love, including trials He gave to all His prophets.
If you’re stuck with a problem of which there seems to be no way out, remember that Yunus a.s got stuck in the belly of a whale.
If you’re betrayed by someone you love, remember that Yussuf a.s was betrayed by his own brothers.
If you’re ill and the pain feels too much to bear, remember Ayyub a.s was ill for a very long time of his life.
If you’re slandered for things you didn’t do, Muhammad s.a.w himself was and is still being slandered as a liar.
Trials will drive you to or away from Allah. The choice is yours.
Take a lesson of patience and perseverance from them. Look at how they took all the trials as blessings. For in the end, there’s no one you should please except Allah, as He is the One and Only judge worth pleasing and submitted to.
