But how can I console me when I am under difficulty, stress? Is it because of my sins or is Allah examining me?
At the end of the day, only Allah knows the answer to this question.
But as has been mentioned above we are only given burdens we can bear so if we find ourselves in the midst of real tribulation we should take consolation in the fact that we have been given the capacity to carry such a trial.
Indeed, if we remain patient throughout, and are not driven to anger and transgression, there are huge blessings to be obtained.“The greatest reward comes with the greatest trial.
When Allah loves a people He tests them.
Whoever accepts that wins His pleasure but whoever is discontent with that earns His wrath.”
On the Day of Resurrection, when people who had suffered affliction are given their reward, those who
were healthy will wish their skins had been cut to pieces with scissors when they were in the world.
May Allah make it easy for all those who are suffering adversity and may He grant them much ease after their hardship.
