Why I am Tested With The Hardships?

Perhaps we often hear such question above or maybe we asked ourselves with that question when we faced many hardships in our lives. Yes or No, it’s only you and Your Lord who know yourselves.
I found the answers for that from a book which explained about “Patience and how to face our life better.” All the answers came from Qur’an.

1. Why I’m tested with the hardships, poorness and hunger?
Qur’an said in surah al-Ankabut: 2-3
“Do the people think that they will be left to say, “We believe” and they will not be tried?
But We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars.”

2. Why I failed to get my dreams?
Qur’an answers in surah al-Baqara : 216
“………But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah knows, while you do not know.”

3. It’s too hard for me!!
Qur’an said in surah Al-Baqara : 286
“Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. …………”

4. Hopeless at facing the difficulties.
Qur’an surat Al-Imran : 139
So do not weaken and do not grieve, and you will be superior if you are [true] believers.

5. How to face these hardships?
We can see surah Al-Baqara : 45
“And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah ].”

6. What will I get from these hardships?
Qur’an answers with surah At-Taubah: 111
“Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties [in exchange] for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah , so they kill and are killed. [It is] a true promise [binding] upon Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah ? So rejoice in your transaction which you have contracted. And it is that which is the great attainment.”

7. To whom I should ask the help?
Again in surah At-Taubah: 129, Qur’an has given the solution.
But if they turn away, [O Muhammad], say, “Sufficient for me is Allah ; there is no deity except Him. On Him I have relied, and He is the Lord of the Great Throne.”

8. I can’t solve my problems, I can’t pass it!!!
Qur’an answers in surah Yusuf: 87
“O my sons, go and find out about Joseph and his brother and despair not of relief from Allah . Indeed, no one despairs of relief from Allah except the disbelieving people.”

Actually, there’re so many verses in Qur’an showed about the solutions of life, not only it but everything.

“The reminders for me first before others.”

وتواصوا بالحق وتواصوا بالصبر

،اخوتى في الله

قال الله تعالى في سورة  العصر: والعصر، إن الإنسان لفيي خسر، إلا الذين ءامنوا  وعملوا  الصالحات  وتواصوا  بالحق  وتواصوا  بالصبر

في هذه الأية علمنا أن الإنسان  في خسر الا من يتواصوا  مع  إخوانه بالحق  وبالصبر. تواصوا  بالحق اي  الامر  بالمعروف  والنهى عن المنكر. يقال  قل الحق  ولو كان  مرا. إذا  لا تحف  أن تقول  الحق  إن اردت  الفلاح  والرضى  من  الله 

الأمر  الثانى اتواصى  بالصبر، الصبر  فى  رأيي  سهل بالقول  لكنه صعب  بالعمل، طبعا مهما كان  صعبا لا بد  لنا أن  نصبر  فى  حياتنا، فمن  صبر  ظفر. وفي  أية  أخرى  نجد  هذا  الأمر، قال  تعالى : واستعن بالصبر  والصلاة. إذا  أصابتنا  مصيبة وجب علينا  الصبر والإستعانة  بالله  سبحانه  وتعالى  فقط، ونسأله سبحانه  الصبر.

ربنا  أفرغ  علينا  صبرا  وتوفنا  مسلمين. ألأعراف :126


Translation into English


images (73)My friends in one faith,

Allah has said in surah Al-Ashr 1-3;

“By time [1] Indeed mankind is in loss [2] Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience.”

From the verses above, we have known that we have to advise each other to truth and to patience.

The first, advise each other to truth or we can say, [order to do good deeds and forbid from doing bad deeds]. We also find the other order, “Tell the truth anyhow it’s bitter to say!”  So, don’t feel afraid to tell the truth if you wish Allah’s help and His rewards.

The second order, is advised each other to patience. According to my mind, “patience” is something easier to say but it’s so difficult to do. Indeed. Although it is so difficult to do, yet we have to be patience in our lives as we can. Everything comes to him who waits.

In the other verse, we’ll find the other order. Allah said, [make patience and salat as your helper].

If we receive disaster, we should be patience and ask help to Allah only.

“Our Lord, pour upon us patience and let’s die as Muslims (in submission to You). Al-A’raf 126.
