We become hopeless and impatient we become when we go through difficulties in life. We put our trust in Allah but if something goes wrong and our plans do not work out, we get angry and lose faith in Allah. We say things like “oh why does it have to be me, why am I the one to suffer?”
Life is queer with its twists and turns, as everyone of us sometimes learns, and many a failure turns about, we should not give up though the race seems slow, we may succeed with another blow, success is failure turned inside out, the silver tint of the clouds of doubt, and be near when it seems so far, so stick to the fight when we’re at our hardest hit, it’s when things seem worse that we must not quit.
Remember that no matter how hard life gets, no matter what we go through, no matter what happens, Allah is with us, Allah knows what we feel, the realization is so beautiful and just so comforting.
There is no greater comfort than knowing that Allah knows and understands how we feel, the struggles, the heartaches, the constrictions, the troubles, the obstacles we are facing. He is aware, He sees and hears everything. All prayers, thoughts and requests are heard, but He provides what’s best for us, and His timing is perfect. Not ours.
And Allah giving us the chance to actually realize our mistakes and gives us the opportunity to repent shows how much He loves us. Allah only challenges and tests those whom He loves the most. He tests us to make us stronger!
Allah uses problems:
1) To direct us
2) To inspect us
3) To Protect us
4) To correct us
5) To Perfect us
Allah is at work in our life, even when we do not recognize it or understand it. But it is much easier and profitable when we cooperate with Allah. We should bow down to Him and say: “Allahu Akbar.”
