View Full Version : For those in times of hardship... this may help inshaAllah

08-03-2008, 05:50 PM

Just a post I made to lift the spirits of those who were down in the past, thought these Words of Allah may help others too inshaAllah :O :

Have trust in Allah, even if it isn't easy.

Have sabr inshaAllah and all will be good ! This may help inshaAllah:

Volume 8, Book 76, Number 432: Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "Allah says, 'I have nothing to give but Paradise as a reward to my believer slave, who, if I cause his dear friend (or relative) to die, remains patient (and hopes for Allah's Reward)."

وَاسْتَعِينُواْ بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلاَةِ وَإِنَّهَا لَكَبِيرَةٌ إِلاَّ عَلَى الْخَاشِعِينَ

And seek help in patience and the prayer and truly it is extremely heavy and hard except for the true, submissive believers.


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اسْتَعِينُواْ بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلاَةِ إِنَّ اللّهَ مَعَ الصَّابِرِينَ

O you who believe! Seek help in patience and the prayer. Truly! Allah is with the patient.

وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُمْ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنَ الْخَوفْ وَالْجُوعِ وَنَقْصٍ مِّنَ الأَمَوَالِ وَالأنفُسِ وَالثَّمَرَاتِ وَبَشِّرِ الصَّابِرِينَ

And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).

And if it is something that you can make better through your own actions, then remember this ayat:

لَهُ مُعَقِّبَاتٌ مِّن بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ يَحْفَظُونَهُ مِنْ أَمْرِ اللّهِ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّى يُغَيِّرُواْ مَا بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ وَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللّهُ بِقَوْمٍ سُوءًا فَلاَ مَرَدَّ لَهُ وَمَا لَهُم مِّن دُونِهِ مِن وَالٍ

For each (person), there are angels in succession, before and behind him. They guard him by the Command of Allah. Verily! Allah will not change the good condition of a people as long as they do not change their state of goodness themselves. But when Allah wills a people's punishment, there can be no turning back of it, and they will find besides Him no protector.

A reminder to me before anyone!

And finally, Allah's help will arive for every incident, since Allah has said:

أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَن تَدْخُلُواْ الْجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا يَأْتِكُم مَّثَلُ الَّذِينَ خَلَوْاْ مِن قَبْلِكُم مَّسَّتْهُمُ الْبَأْسَاء وَالضَّرَّاء وَزُلْزِلُواْ حَتَّى يَقُولَ الرَّسُولُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ مَعَهُ مَتَى نَصْرُ اللّهِ أَلا إِنَّ نَصْرَ اللّهِ قَرِيبٌ

Or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, "When (will come) the help of allah?" Yes! Certainly, the help of allah is near!

Surah 94:
So verily, with the hardship, there is relief,
فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا (٥)

Verily, with the hardship, there is relief
إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا (٦)

So when you have finished (from your occupation), then stand up for Allah's worship (i.e. stand up for prayer).
فَإِذَا فَرَغْتَ فَانصَبْ (٧)

And to your Lord (Alone) turn (all your intentions and hopes and) your invocations.
وَإِلَى رَبِّكَ فَارْغَبْ (٨)

And remember, nothing is too heavy on the soul:

Surah 2, Baqarah:

Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. He gets reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned. "Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error, our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which You did lay on those before us (Jews and Christians); our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us Forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Maula (Patron, Supporter and Protector, etc.) and give us victory over the disbelieving people."
لاَ يُكَلِّفُ اللّهُ نَفْسًا إِلاَّ وُسْعَهَا لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ رَبَّنَا لاَ تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِن نَّسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا رَبَّنَا وَلاَ تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا رَبَّنَا وَلاَ تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لاَ طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا أَنتَ مَوْلاَنَا فَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ (٢٨٦)

If you feel a heavy burden on your soul, then read that ayat in the Quran (last ayat of Surah 2, Baqarah), inshaAllah that dua will help!

Hope that helps.

Aww subhanAllah! JazakAllah khayr for these beautiful reminders!

may Allah grant us the wisdom to realise that the path of thorns we may walk on today or at any point in our lives, can only lead to Jannah and a beautiful aakhirah bi'ithnillah.

May Allah (swt) bestow upon us all a sweet sakeenah and the most beautiful form of patience. Ameen!

Wa iyyaki wa barakallahu feeki to ya all.

Ameen to the duas :').

When the Prophet (Sal-allahu-alaihi-wasallam) was asked which people suffered the greatest affliction, he replied, "The prophets, then those who come next to them, then those who come next to them. A man is afflicted in keeping his religion. If he is firm in his religion his trial is severe, but if there is weakness in his religion it is made light for him, and it continues like that till he walks on the earth having no sin."

Narrated by Hazrat Sa'd(Razi Allah Ta'lah Anhu); Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah and Darimi transmitted it. Hadith No.1562 of Mishkat al-Masabih.

AssalamuAlaykum Warahmatullah

Hadhrat Yaqub (as) said: I only complain of my suffering and sadness to Allah (Surah Yusuf)

Without a doubt, Allah (swt) is Sami3 ash-Shakwa, so let us call upon Him and complain to Him alone to relieve us of any distress insha'Allah
