Who were the ones who were tested the most? The Prophets were tested the most and they were the best of people. The best people get tested the most. That is the price for gaining the highest ranks of Paradise.
In the Hereafter once we see the magnificent rewards for those who were tested the most then we would wish we were tested more:
Narrated Jabir Ibn Abdullah (Ra) Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, "On the Day of Resurrection, when people who have suffered affliction are given their reward, those who are healthy will wish their skins had been cut to pieces with scissors when they were in the world." (Al-Tirmidhi #1570)
2) My brother we must never have that attitude towards Dua for that is what shaythan wants us to think so that we may stop asking of Allah.
Allah the most compassionate says in the Holy Quran, "Call on Me. I will answer your prayer, but those who are too arrogant to serve me will surely find themselves humiliated in Hell" (40:60).
Almighty Allah says: "And your Lord says: Pray unto me: and I will hear your prayer" (Quran 40:60)
"Call upon your Lord Humbly and in secret" (Quran 7:55),
"When My servants question thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calleth on Me" (Quran 2:186),
"Is not He (best) who listens to the (soul) distressed when it calls on Him, and who relieves its suffering." (Quran 27:62)
Dua’s are never wasted
Aisha (Ra) said, "No believer makes Dua and it is wasted. Either it is granted here in this world or deposited for him in the Hereafter as long as he does not get frustrated."
Allah’s anger at those who don’t make Dua
In fact, it is even wrong to never make Dua, "Whosoever does not supplicate to Allah, He will be angry with Him." (Saheeh Jaami`as-Sagheer #2414)
So we must NEVER think that a Dua is wasted. In fact we should do far more Dua's than we currently do. We may tire from asking of Allah but he never tires of giving to us and his slaves.
3. Everyone has their own worries and agenda's than to get drawn into friction, conflict and war that will only cost them dearly. Remember that all power in this world and in the universe and everything it contains only belongs to Allah and whatever is happening is only happening because it has been allowed to happen in accordance with the will of Allah. So we should never fear anyone but Allah and we must realise that man may be planning and plotting but the best of all planners is Allah!
And Allah knows best in all matters
