In times of Difficulties when we have tried everything that has been possible within our means to resolve our troubles, and searched every avenue and every route possible for a solution, and we are none the wiser. We should ponder why we are unable to find a solution or any positive answers, and why there are closed doors in every direction we turn to? The answer lies in the following words we are taught;
By performing patience we are allowing our worries to rest with Allah Subhaanuhuwataaala, we search for help in everything and from everyone other then our Creator. It is only our Creator who can make the impossible; possible, and only He can do what He wills, how He wills, and for whomever He wills. As soon as we turn towards Allah Subhaanuhuwataaala with our bag full of worries, concerns, anxieties and troubles, the panic, despondency and frustration begins to disappear.
Our Creator is Al-Wise, Al-Aware; therefore, difficulties are only created with His full Wisdom and Awareness. What can a human resolve who does not know everything, compared to the One who is All-Knowing and knows everything and has the entire universe running under His Control? When we turn to people for help after a few times of helping us they become fed up and despondent with us, unlike our Creator who does not want to help us a few times, but He wants to help us unlimitedly and forever as long as we are alive, just waiting to embrace us with His Compassion and Mercy. The creation maybe the means, but it is the Creator whose hands are at work for us.
A Believer bears difficulties with patience, why?
- Because Allah Subhaanuhuwataaala knows of the difficulties we endure and we endure them for a purpose known only to Him
- To identify the real Believers; are we going to turn to our Creator, or are we going to panic and run to His creation for help?
- Difficulties draw us closer to Allah Subhaanuhuwataaala
- Difficulties wash away our sins and elevate our status in the Hereafter
- Difficulties purify our sins, so we will not suffer the trials and tribulations of the Hereafter, but we will enter directly into Jannah
Our Creator is fully Aware of our worries and anxieties. It is enough that the All-Knowing knows the troubles of our hearts. It is our belief as Muslims that all fate good and bad comes from Allah Subhaanuhuwataaala. How can we stop the clouds from drifting in the skies, how can we stop the noise of thunderbolts and lightening from striking, who is in control the Creator or His creation? We learn our lessons in life the hard way, we lose hope first, then turn to Allah Subhaanuhuwataaala, but we should be turning to Allah Subhaanuhuwataaala first, and not lose hope. Because, worries end where faith begins.
