They kept steadfast, prayed and never gave up. And so will your life aswell, inshaAllah, always have that beautiful light shining although in the middle of darkness you stand. Keep praying, keep believing and have faith in Allah. Always try to do the right thing, avoid haram and praise Allah.
When the believers get struck by hardship, they are to say elhamdulillah, all praise belongs to God, to accept the situation and not grief, rather seek protection and continue to fight. For we should always remember, there is greater hardship and greater pain somewhere else, and I'm not just meaning those who suffer more in this life, wars and the like, they aswell but.. I'm thinking of the Afterlife one gets when not staying steadfast in your Deen (religion).
Sometimes in order not to get the punishments in the grave, we get them now, whilst alive. And by all means, that's way better than suffering in the grave or Afterlife, subhanAllah. For here we know what helps and have the abilities to ask for forgiveness and protection, but there.. There we may have no second chances.
InshaAllah you'll find comfort in our words, mashaAllah great posts by my fellow Muslims. BarakAllahu feekum, everyone.
May Allah subhana we ta'ala always guide my fellow Muslim sisters and brothers and keep you walking in the right path. Amiin. :thumbs_up
