* A soul seeking wisdom as a treasure of life *
December 17 2016
Every single person in this world is facing some sort of trial or test. There may be some facing trials in education, others in their jobs, still others in their businesses, and still more facing problems with family or friends. But Allah (swt) says:
Oh you who believe! Seek help with patient perseverance and prayer, for God is with those who patiently persevere.
As from the Holy Quran, specific verses have been found to address this, namely:
"Oh U who believe, seek help with Patience, Perseverance & Prayer. For Allah is with those who patiently persevere".
Dealing with Crises
So many times in our lives something happens to us and we feel that this is the worst thing that can happen to us. But then after the trial we realize that this is the best thing that could have happened to us. So we have to be patient and know that Allah (swt) is sufficient for us and is the best disposer of all our affairs. He will guide us to that which is good.
With Every Trial, a Solution
So whatever trials we are going through, we should know that we have already been told about this by Allah (swt) in the Quran. But we are not left alone with all the trials and difficulties. Allah (swt) gives us the way out.
All Tests from Allah
Everything that we have in this world is a test from Allah (swt). A person is going to continue to be tested throughout his lifetime only to wash off his sins so that on the day of resurrection Allah (swt) puts him in jannah.
Whatever test we are going through in this world, we should remember that it is from Allah (swt) and that these test bring us closer and closer to Jannah, provided we deal with them with patience and perseverance.
The Reward of Patience
There is a beautiful story about patience in the Holy Quran of Prophet Yusuf A.S.
His brothers threw him into the well, but he was patient and so Allah (swt) raised him out of that well. He ended up in the house of one of the most powerful people of Egypt.
The most beautiful quality for the test of life is indeed,, Patience :)
