The Prophet (peace be upon him)said: "No fatigue, illness, anxiety, sorrow, harm or sadness afflicts any Muslim, even to the extent of a thorn pricking him, without Allah wiping out his sins by it." [Sahîh al-Bukhârî and Sahîh Muslim]
In another narration, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
“No Muslim is afflicted by harm, whether it is but the prick of a thorn or something worse, without Allah expiating his evil deeds on account of it and his sins falling away from him like leaves off a tree.'" [Sahîh al-Bukhârî]
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
"When Allah desires good for someone, He tries him with hardships." [Sahîh al-Bukhârî]
Surely Allah is wanting good upon you by testing you and this shows he wants you to be closest to him. What a privelage!
All he wants is for you to be patient through these trials and hardships and accept them as the decree of Allah and repent to him every opportunity you get because one does not realise how special it is when the slave of Allah repents to him.
Let us be patient for Allah is with those who are patient and the reward of patience is Jannah and those who's children have passed away will be waiting to hold the hands of those mothers who were patient and accepted it has the decree of Allah. What an amazing gift yet we think it is a bad thing? No it is a good thing if only we realise!
