In life, we will meet a lot of trial or turbulence. Allah created all of those things to test us, to see how we’re going to react in those circumstances.But some times we feel that all of those tests are weakening us, drop us apart, hitting us so hardly so were feeling numb and so sick/in pain. Be patient, and try to strengthen your patience.
O ye who believe! persevere In patience and constancy; vie In such perseverance; strengthen Each other; and fear Allah. that ye may prosper.(QS. Ali Imran: 200)
Yeah, I also sometimes feel that all of those tests are felt just a little bit too hard for me. But then I remember that prophets are even having a harder condition considered to me.
Prophet Nuh (pbuh) for example, trying to persuade his people to embrace Islam for 900 years, but all his get is only 90 whom willing to accept his exclaim.
Prophet Ibrahim (pbuh), the God beloved (kalilullah), is also had being burn by king Namrud, doesn’t have child until he was old, etc.
Prophet Luth (pbuh), whom his people like to do a disgusting gay practice, even his wife becomes a part of those people.
Prophet Yusuf (pbuh) being throw by his own brother in the middle of the desert, sold as a slave, threaten to be killed/executed, being jailed, etc.
Prophet Ayub (pbuh) who had a hard disease like no others for many years lost his family except his wife, but still only pray like this:
and (remember) Job, when He cried to His Lord, “Truly distress has seized me, but Thou art the Most Merciful of those that are Merciful.” (QS. Al Anbiya: 83)
Prophet Musa (pbuh), whom even try to be killed when he was a baby (a sorcerer telling the Pharaoh about the news that there will be a man whom will overthrowing his thrown, so he command to kill all the male baby), being chase by pharaoh soldier, and etc.
Prophet Yahya (pbuh) who had been killed.
Prophet Isa (pbuh) whom his mother (Maryam) being accused as a disgrace woman, and a lot of people even try to executed (capture) him.
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who is an orphan since child, beat up, being thrown by a rock, spit, and those unpleasant treat by his own people when he try to explain about Islam, try to be killed, and etc etc.
By Allah names whose my soul is in His hand, those people are God representative in this world. If He (God) wants to, he can just make all of those prophets felt happy life in this world, or even instantly killed their enemy/people who doesn’t like them. While God is the most powerful and able to do anything that He wants.
So, if those beloved and the closest person in the world with God are being patient when they have the hardest moment ever, why can we just become a little more patient?
on no soul doth Allah place a burden greater than it can bear. it gets every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns. (Pray:) “Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error; Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which Thou Didst Lay on those before us; Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Blot out Our sins, and grant us Forgiveness. have Mercy on us. Thou art Our Protector; help us against those who stand against faith.” (QS. Al Baqarah: 286)
(Amen/please grant it Oh almighty Allah)
