Tests are a Must |
We’re living in really challenging times; the whole world is in turmoil and people are facing tests of varying degrees in their lives at the moment. Allah has promised us that, just as the coming of rainfall is necessary to revive the land, He will send us challenges to strengthen and revive our faith:
‘Do the people think that they will be left to say, ‘We believe’ and they will not be tried?’ (Quran 29:2)
A Burden you can Bear
‘Allah does not charge a soul except (with that within) its capacity.’ (Quran 2: 286) If you realise that Allah never tests you with anything more than you can cope with, you know from the start that no matter how big the challenge, you have the ability to handle it, somehow. Your only task then is to work out how. It may not be easy but in the end you know that if you face it, believing in this verse, you will come out stronger.
First Things ‘....When you ask for anything then ask Allah only, if you need help then seek it from Allah, and know that if all the people gathered and intended to harm you then they cannot do so except that which Allah has destined for you.’ (Ahmed) The first one you should turn to for help in any challenge that you face should be Allah, as He is the one who ultimately directs all matters. After you have turned to Him then one can try different means to solve the challenge.
