Allah's Assurance

Recommended Posts

Allah also says in the Qur’an:

 

Chapter 2 Surah Al Baqarah

 

 

 

On No Soul Does Allah Place A Burden

Greater Than It Can Bear

[Verse:286]

 

Keeping this assurance of Allah in mind, one finds the courage to face any difficulty and tribulation. This was the practice of the Prophets and all those who followed the truth. We have the story of Yaqub (AS) who saw his own sons inflicting injustice over their brother who was chosen to be a prophet, yet instead of avenging his son he chose to be patient.

 

Chapter 12 Surah Yusuf

 

 

 

Jacob said: "Nay, but ye have yourselves contrived a story (good enough) for you. So patience is most fitting (for me). Maybe Allah will bring them (back) all to me (in the end). For He is indeed full of knowledge and wisdom." [Verse:83]

 

 

It is during the time of trials that a believer realizes the love of Allah for him; that Allah chose to cleanse him in this life rather than punish him for his misdeeds in the hereafter.

 

It Is Shaytan Who Makes Our Hearts Constraint

And Exaggerates The Situation

Making It Harder For Us To Handle It...

The More We Entertain The Thoughts

Given To Us By Shaytan,

The More The Trials Seem Longer And More Difficult!

 

It is like a joyful night versus a depressed night; when one is happy and enjoying, the night seems to go fast whereas when one is sad, the night seems never ending. This is how a believer’s life is; It is like a joyful night when he is happily awaiting the sunrise which is jannah.

 

True Beautiful Patience Is Reflected

In A Person’s Voice And Face...

A Believer Has A Content, Happy Face Even When Suffering,

And His Voice Does Not Betray The Sad Emotions

He Is Dealing With!

We Will Meet Allah In The Same State

That We Died In

And None Of Us Know The Time Of Death!

 

If we die complaining and lamenting over our situation, what face will we stand in front of Allah with? How will we justify our complaint over our misfortune while at the same time we were drowned in immense gifts of Allah?

 

Our happiness and grief is really in our own hands. We can either choose to accept what Allah has chosen for us (Qadr-fate) or keep complaining about it. In either case we can’t change the situation.

 

This Acceptance Of Fate Is What Brings

Joy And Beauty To The Face

And Keeps A Person Young And Healthy...

Whereas...

Complaints And Resistance To Fate

Brings Misery, Ugliness, And Old Age Upon Us!

 

In other words, remembrance of hereafter keeps us young and beautiful and dunya makes us old. The choice is fairly simple and it is in your own hands: Surrender to the will of Allah and be happy in this life and the hereafter; or be miserable without being able to change what has been ordained for you.
