    The Relief After Hardship (OP)


    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    Some years ago, a certain `Aalim requested me to translate a very beneficial Kitaab of Imaam as-Suyooti, named "al-Araju fil-Faraji" into the English language. The Kitaab itself is in Arabic, and in fact, it is a commentary of a Kitaab written quite a while before by Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa, who had named his Kitaab: "Al-Faraju ba`dash Shiddah" (The Relief After Hardship).

    This Kitaab itself is written as a kind of "Tasliyah" (consolation), you could say. It provides an abundance of Ahaadeeth, Du`aas, even poetry, and the subject is about giving the Mu'min hope; increasing his Tawakkul in Allaah Ta`aalaa; assisting him in having Sabr and Shukr; inspiring him; motivating him; freeing him from depression, anxiety, worries and sorrows, etc.

    The reason this particular `Aalim had suggested I translate the Kitaab is because he said that, in these times, depression and anxiety have become very common, even among the Muslims (which should never be the case), and so he suggested that this Kitaab be translated which can act - In Shaa Allaah - as a kind of comfort for those who read it. That, after reading it, Allaah Ta`aalaa will remove all of their sorrows, grief and worries and replace it with happiness, Aameen. That was the intention of the respected authors, namely, Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa رحمة الله عليه, and later on, Imaam as-Suyooti رحمة الله عليه.

    It was only recently, though, that I decided to start with the translation of this Kitaab, and Allaah Ta`aalaa granted me the Tawfeeq to begin, Alhamdulillaah. The translation is still in process. What I will do in this thread, In Shaa Allaah, is that, every time a new page is translated, I will post it here. The original Arabic Kitaab is only 86 pages.

    May Allaah Ta`aalaa make it a means of benefit to myself first of all and to all those who read it, Aameen.

    For today, I will post what has been translated thus far.

    Another poet said:

    يا غافلاً والمنون يطلبه من نصح الله نفسه نصحا
    ومن تسلى بذكر خالقه عوّضه من همومه فرحا

    "O negligent one while death is seeking him: the one who is sincere to Allaah shall be sincere to his own self, and the one who finds consolation in the Dhikr of his Creator, He (Allaah) shall replace his worries with joy."

    - 133 -

    Abu Di`bil al-Jumahi recited the following poem:

    عسى كربة أمسيت فيها مقيمة يكون لنا منها رجاء ومخرج
    فتكبت أعداء ويجذل وامق له كبد من لوعة البين تلعج

    "Perhaps, for the difficulty you have entered into, there will be a hope for us from it, and a way out, such as will cause the enemies to be suppressed and the friend to rejoice, whose liver burns with the anguish of separation.”

    - 134 -

    Zayd ibn `Umar al-Haarithee recited the following poem:

    إذا مذهب سدت عليك فروجه فإنك لاق لا محالة مذهبا
    فلا تجعلن كرب الخطوب إذا عرت عليك رتاجاً لا يزال مصعبا
    وكن رجلاً جلداً إذا ما تقلّبت به صيرفيات الأمور تقلّبا

    "When one path becomes sealed to you, you shall definitely encounter another path. The hurt of difficulties shall not be placed as a lock upon you, never ceasing to be difficult. Be a man of patience with the changings of circumstances from one to another."

    - 135 -

    Al-Husain ibn Mutair al-Asadi recited the following poem:

    إذا يسر الله الأمور تيسرت ولانت قواها واستقام عسيرها
    فكم طامع في حالة لن ينالها وكم آيس منها أتاه بشيرها
    وكم خائف صار المخوف ومقتر تموّل والأحداث يحلو مريرها
    وقد تغدر الدنيا فيمسي غنيّها فقيراً ويغني بعد بؤس فقيرها
    وكم قد رأينا من تكدّر عيشة وأخرى صفا بعد اكدرار غديرها

    "When Allaah makes matters easy, they become easy; their power weakens and their difficulty is removed.

    How many a person covets a condition which he shall never obtain; yet, it came to many a person who had despaired of attaining it.

    How many a scared person became one who is feared; how many a stingy person beame one who is wealthy. Circumstances change, the bitter things turning sweet.

    The world proves treacherous; the rich man becomes poor, and the poor man - after the hardship of poverty - becomes rich.

    How many a troubled and muddy life we have seen, but many a stream runs pure after the muddiness."

    Another poet said:

    إلى الله الأمر في الخلق كله وليس إلى المخلوق شيء من الأمر
    إذا أنا لم أقبل من الدهر كل ما تكرّهت منه طال عتبي على الدهر
    ووسّع صدري بالأذى الأنس بالأذى وإن كان أحياناً يضيق له صدري
    وصيّرني يأسي من الناس راجياً لحسن صنيع الله من حيث لا أدري

    "To all belongs all of the affairs of the creation; nothing and no authority in it belongs to them.

    If I do not accept, from time, everything which I dislike from it, my rebuke upon time would be prolonged.

    My chest became vast through the harm (of people) despite (my) cordiality, though at times it may have caused by chest to constrict. My losing hope in people has caused me to have hope (in Allaah Alone), for the wonderful favours of Allaah which comes from whence I do not even know."

    - 137 -

    Another poet said:

    تخطي النفوس مع العيا ن وقد تصيب مع المظنه
    كم من مضيق في الفضا ء ومخرج بين الأسنة

    "People may walk through seeing and viewing, though they may hit the mark through assumption.

    How many may get captured despite the open space, and yet how many may escape despite between the heads of the spears."

    - 138 -

    Another poet said:

    هل الهمّ إلا فرجة تتفرّج لها معقب يجري إليه ويزعج
    ألا ربما ضاق الفضاء بأهله وأكمن من بين الأسنة مخرج

    "What is worry, except something a relief shall disperse; it has something in its trail that catches up to it and vexes it.

    Take note, many a time people may be caught despite the open air, yet escape may be possible despite being between the heads of the spears."

    Another poet said:

    لا يرعك الشر إن ظهرت بتأويل مخائله
    رُبَّ أمر سر آخره بعد ما ساءت أوائله

    "Evil shall not harm you if you overcome it through awaiting the signs (of being saved from it).

    The end part of many a matter may be pleasing, though its beginning had been bad."

    - 140 -

    Another poet said:

    قد يصح المريق من بعد يأس كان منه ويهلك العواد
    ويصاد القطا فينجو سليماً بعد هلك ويهلك الصياد

    "The sick person may become healthy after having given up hope, and those who visit him perish.

    A sand grouse may be hunted yet gets away safely after the certitude of death, and the hunter may perish in his stead.”

    - 141 -

    Another poet said:

    الصبر مفتاح ما يرجّى كل خير به يكون
    فاصبر وإن طالت الليالي فربما ساعد الحرون
    وربما نيل باصطبار ما قيل هيهات لا يكون

    "Patience is the key to whatever is hoped for; with it, every good thing shall come to be. Therefore, be patient though the nights may drag on long; many a time the obstinate one may lend his help. Many a time, through patience one may acquire that of which was said, "Far-fetched be it; never shall it happen!"

    Re: The Relief After Hardship



    What does "patience" mean?
    The Relief After Hardship

    Meaning of Shirk according to The Qur'an
    " Worshipping anyone or anything besides Allah " or " distributing anything exclusive to Allah, to anyone or anything else "

    Meaning of Tawheed according to The Qur'an
    Worshipping none but Allah. Affirming whatever is exclusive to Him, Him alone.

    It is narrated that Hadhrat `Ali ibn Abi Taalib رضي الله عنه said:

    كم نعمة لا أستقل بشكرها لله في جنب المكاره كامنه

    "There is many a favour which I do not deem the gratitude towards as being light; (sometimes) Allaah conceals (goodness) in the side of things which are disliked."

    - 143 -

    Ibn al-Mu`tazz recited this poem:

    خليلي إن الدهر ما تريانه فصبراً وإلا أي شيء سوى الصبر
    عسى الله أن يرتاح لي منه فرجة تجيء بها الأيام من حيث لا أدري

    "My friend, the times are as you see, thus, exercise patience; for, what else is there besides patience?

    Perhaps Allaah will grant me a relief from Him, which shall be brought by the days from whence I do not expect."

    - 144 -

    `Abdullaah ibn al-Hurr al-Ju`fi recited this poem:

    لم يجعل الله قلبي حين ينزل بي همّ يضيقني ضيقاً ولا حرجا
    ما أنزل الله بي همّاً فأحرهه إلا سيجعل لي من بعده فرجا

    "Allaah has not made my heart one which worries at the time of affliction by difficulties, nor one which becomes constricted. Never does any difficulty befall me which I dislike, except that Allaah will grant me a relief after it."

    - 145 -

    Another poet said:

    إن يكن يومي تولى سعده وتداعي لي بنحس ونكد
    فلعل الله يقضي فرجا في غد من عنده أو بعد غد

    "If the fortune of my day should change to one of misfortune and misery, (I shall not worry); perhaps Allaah shall decree a relief soon after - tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow."

    - 146 -

    Al-Mu`arree recited this poem:

    لا تشك فالأيام حبلى ربما جاءتك من أعجوبة بجنين
    وكذا تصاريف الزمان مشقة في راحة وخشونة في لين
    ما ضاع يونس بالعراء مجرداً في ظلّ نابتة من اليقطين

    "Do not complain, for indeed the days are pregnant; at times they may come to you with the marvel of a foetus. Similarly, is the changing of the times; difficulty within rest, roughness within easiness.

    Yunus (عليه السلام) was not left exposed on the shore; he was covered by the shade of a plant of gourd."

    Read and reflect Inshallah


    Add: Patience and gratitude go hand in hand so while you may seem to have the capabilities for one you can never truly reach the highest levels without the other, evaluate yourself to see what you are deficient in

    Ibn Nubaatah as-Sa`dee recited this poem:

    تربّص بومك ما في غد فإن العواقب قد تعقب
    لعل غداً من أخيه حمى يلمّ لك الصدع أو يرأب

    "Await today what lies within tomorrow; perhaps (different) outcomes shall follow up these ones.

    Perhaps the one whose brother is angry (at him), tomorrow he may reconcile with you."

    - 148 -

    At-Tughraa'i recited this poem:

    رويدك فالهموم لها رتاج وعن قرب يكون لها انفراج
    ألم تر أن طول الليل لمّا تناهى كان للصبح انبلاج

    "Wait patiently, for worries have a lock, and soon they shall be dispersed. Have you not seen the brightness of dawn after the lengthy night has passed?"

    - 149 -

    Abu Firaas ibn Hamdaan recited this poem:

    خفّض عليك ولا تكن قلق الحشى مما يكون وعلّه وعساه
    فالدهر أقصر مدة مما ترى وعساك أن تكفى الذي تخشاه

    "Reduce (your worrying) and do not be ill at ease from 'perhaps' and 'maybe'; the time will last much shorter than what you see, and perhaps you shall be sufficed against what you are worried about."

    - 150 -

    Another poet said:

    أبى لي إغضاء الجفون على القذى يقيني أن لا ضيق إلا سيفرج
    ألا ربما ضاق الفضاء بأهله وأمكن من بين الأسنة مخرج

    "For me is to shut my eyelids over the difficulty; my conviction is that there is no hardship except that it shall be removed.

    Many a times people are caught despite the open, and many a times escape is possible despite being between the heads of the spears."

    - 151 -

    Another poet said:

    كن عن همومك معرضا وكل الأمور إلى القضا
    وابشر بخير عاجل تنسى به ما قد مضى
    فلرُبَّ أمر مسخط لك في عواقبه رضا

    "Turn away fro your worries and entrust your affairs to the Divine Decree (of Allaah). Have glad-tidings for a goodness soon to come, which shall cause you to forget all of the difficulty that has passed. Many a matter unpleasing to you shall be followed up by one which shall please you."

    Qaadhi Abu-l Hasan `Ali ibn Muhammad ibn an-Nadhr, well-known by the name of al-Areeb, recited this poem at a time when he was afflicted by a calamity:

    يا مستجيب دعاء المستجير به ويا مفرج ليل الكربة الداجي
    قد أرتجت دوننا الأبواب وانغلقت وجلّ بابك عن منع وإرتاج
    نخاف عدلك أن يمضي القضاء به ونرتجيك فكن للخائف الراجي

    "O Answerer of the Du`aa of the one who seeks protection with Him, and Who disperses the dark night of hardships. The doors have been closed and locked unto us, but Your door is greater than to be blocked or locked.

    We fear Your Justice, that the Divine Decree should pass according to it; we place our hopes in You, so (O Allaah) be help the who fears and hopes in You."

    - 153 -

    In one of the Tafaaseer it is is mentioned that a man visited one of the Khulafaa and found him to be filled with worries, so he said to him:

    الهمّ فصل والقضا غالب وكائن ما خطّ في اللوح
    فانتظر الرَوح وأسبابه أيس ما كنت من الرَوح

    "Worry shall pass and the Divine Decree shall overpower, and whatever has been written in the Lowh (Protected Tablet) shall come to pass.

    Await for relief (from Allaah) and its means, at the time when you are most despairing of relief."

    - 154 -

    Al-Hasan Buraik recited this poem:

    قابل البلوى إذا حل ت بصبر ومسرّه
    فلعل الله أن يو ليك بعد العسر يسره
    كم عهدنا نكبة ح لّت فولت بعد فتره

    "When affliction strikes, meet it with patience and happiness; perhaps Allaah will grant you ease after the hardship. How many a difficulty we have seen leaving after a short while."

    Another poet said:

    علام يسعى الحريص في طلب ال رزق بطول الرواح الدلج
    يا دافع الباب رُبّ مجتهد قد أدمن القرع ثم لم يلج
    ورُبّ مستفتح على مهل لم يشق في قرعه ولم يهج
    فاطو على الهم كشح مصطبر فآخر الهم أوّل الفرج

    "For what does the greedy one engross himself, throughout the days and into the darkest hours of the night, in search of provision?

    O person shoving against the door! Many a hard-worker had knocked persistently on the door, yet was not allowed entry; and many a person who asked (permission) to enter with calmness and ease, was not disappointed in (the result) of his knocking and was not agitated.

    Therefore, fold up your worries and adopt patience, for indeed the last part of worry is the first part of the relief."

    - 156 -

    As-Salaah as-Safadi recited this poem:

    بالله لا تأس على فائت مضى ولا تيأس من اللطف
    فقد يجيء الدهر مع قوة فيه بيوم لين العطف

    "By Allaah, do not despair over anything which passed you by, and do not despair of (receiving) kindness (from Allaah); for indeed, time - with the power in it - may come forth with a day that is easy."

    - 157 -

    He also recited the following poem:

    لزمت بيتي مثل ما قيل لي ولم أعاند حادث الدهر
    علماً بأن اليأس رهن الرجا وغاية العسر إلى اليسر
    وليس لي درع ترد الردى أستغفر الله سوى الصبر
    فقد يسل السيف من غمده ويخرج الدر من البحر
    وتبرز الصهباء من دنّها ويرجع النور إلى البدر

    "I attached myself to my house as was said to me, and did not oppose the affliction of the time, knowing that despondency is set aside for hope, and that the end of hardship is ease.

    I had no shield capable of defending against death - I seek forgiveness from Allaah - except to exercise patience. For indeed, the sword has been drawn from its sheath, and the pearl has emerged from the sea. The wine has emerged from its cask, and the light returns to the full moon."

    - 158 -

    Ash-Shihaab al-Baa`ooni recited the following poem:

    سلّم إلى الله ما قضاه لا بدّ أن ينفذ القضاء
    سيجعل الله بعد عسر يسراً به يذهب العناء
    يدبر الأمر منه جمعاً ويفعل الله ما يشاء

    "Submit to Allaah in that which He has decreed; whatever has been decreed shall most certainly occur. Allaah shall grant, after hardship, such ease as shall do away with the pains.

    All affairs are managed by Him, and Allaah does whatever He wishes."

    Re: The Relief After Hardship

    - 159 -

    Abu Nasr Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn al-Husain al-Farwaji, the writer, wrote the following poem:

    إذا المرء ضاق به ذرعه وعزّت عليه وجوه الطلب
    وعزّ المساعد في دهره فلا ذو إخاء ولا ذو حسب
    وأصبح من فرج مؤيساً ولم يبق غير حلول العطب
    أتاه القضاء بلطف الإله ففرّج من حيث لا يحتسب

    "When man is placed into difficulty, and the means of seeking become rare to him, and the helpers become few in his time (of difficulty), and he has no brethren (to help him out) and he has no standing (in society), and he becomes despondent of receiving any relief, and nothing remains except destruction and ruin: the Divine Decree, bringing a kindness from the Ilaah comes to him, and he is granted relief from whence he had not even imagined.”

    - 160 -

    On the back of one Kitaab, I found the following two verses of poetry inscribed, and underneath were the following words:

    "It is said that no person will recite these two verses during a time of difficulty except that Allaah will grant him relief from it and will remove his Ghamm (sadness and grief), and in place of the Ghamm, Allaah will grant him joy, and will remove from him all worries, anxiety, hardships and despondency and broken-heartedness."

    I have tried it out and found it to be as has been said. These two verses are:

    يا رب ما زال لطف منك يشملني وقد تجدد لي ما أنت تعلمه
    فاصرف عني كما عودتي كرماً فمن سواك لهذا العبد يرحمه

    "O my Rabb, Your Kindness has never ceased to encompass me, and has revived for me that which You know; therefore, avert from me (this difficulty) as You always do, out of Your Generosity, for who is there to have mercy upon this slave besides You?"

    - 161 -

    Ibn Habeeb recited the following poem:

    ولرب نازلة يضيق لها الفضا ذرعاً وعند الله منها المخرج
    عظمت فلما استحكمت حلقاتها فرجت وكان يظنها لا تفرج
    لا تيأسن فكل عسر بعده يسر يسر به الفؤاد المحرج
    واصبر فإن الصبر في الدنيا إلى نيل المنى والقصد نعم المنهج

    "Many a difficulty causes the open space to become constricted (upon the sufferer), yet with Allaah lies the way out. The difficulty became big, and when the last of its links had become established, relief was granted, and he had been thinking that the difficulty would never be removed.

    Do not despair, for indeed every hardship shall be followed up by ease; an ease that shall happiness to the suffering heart.

    Have patience, for indeed having patience in this world for attaining one's desires and goals is a most excellent way of life."

    Imaam Abu Daawud, Imaam an-Nasaa’i, Imaam ibn Maajah and Imaam ibn Abi-d Dunyaa narrate from Hadhrat `Abdullaah ibn `Abbaas رضي الله عنهما that he said, “Whosoever makes Istighfaar (seeks forgiveness from Allaah Ta`aalaa) in abundance, Allaah will grant him relief from every single worry, anxiety and distress, will make a way out for him from every difficulty, and will grant him Rizq (sustenance) from whence he had never even imagined.”

    --------

    عسى الكرب الذي أمسيت فيه يكون وراءه فرجٌ قريبُ
    فيأمن خائفٌ ويفكّ عانٍ ويأتيَ أهلَه النائي الغريبُ

    "Soon the difficulty which you find yourself in, there will be after it a relief near at hand. Thus, the fearful one will attain security and the one undergoing hardship will be freed, and the distant stranger will return to his family.

    -------

    "O Muhammad ibn Himyar, always do good (to others), because it saves one from an evil death, and (know that) even if (the good you have done) is lost to the one to whom it was done, it is not lost to Allaah `Azza wa Jall."

    ------

    لا تجزعنّ إذا ما الأمر ضقت به ذرعاً ونم وتوسد فارغ البال
    وما اهتمامك والمجدي عليك وقد جرى القضاء بأرزاق وآجال

    "Do not fall into anxiety when circumstances become difficult; take rest, sleep with peace of mind.

    Of what benefit to you is your anxiety and worrying, when the Divine Decree (of Allaah) has already passed the provisions and lifespans?"

    Re: The Relief After Hardship



    Mankind comes across many afflictions and trials, sometimes in overwhelming sequences. Removing the darkness of these worries, distresses, depression and grief is a very important matter to which Islām gives serious attention...

    No amount of guilt can change the past, and no amount of worrying can change the future. Go easy on yourself, for the outcome of all affairs is determined by Allāh’s decree.

    Abdullah ibn 'Abbas رضي الله عنه related one day he was riding behind Allah's Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم who said: Distresses, depression and grief is a very important affair

    "Young man, if you are mindful of Allāh (of His commands and prohibitions), He will be mindful of you, and if you are mindful of Allah you will find Him before you. When you ask for anything ask it from Allah, and if you seek help, seek help from Allāh. Know that if the people were to unite to do you some benefit they could benefit you only with what Allāh had decreed for you, and that if they were to unite to do you some injury they could injure you only with what Allāh had recorded for you. The pens have been lifted and the pages are dry."

    Ahmad, Tirmidhi - An-Nawawi's Forty Hadith

    So with this knowledge that no harm or good can touch a servant of Allāh except with the permission of the All-Knower and All-Wise, the hearts find tranquillity and contentment. This therefore encourages the Muslim to patientiently persevere during an affliction and motivates him to praise Allāh when He bestows some portion of good upon him. Whatever his situation, if the Muslim acts accordingly he has only rewards to gain and nothing to lose...

    I will be using this In Sha Allaah - to encourage those who are going through trials. I am in touch with Muslims in various Prisons, and sometimes they are disheartened of their situation, this will surely uplift them.

    May Allaah azza wa jal reward you.
