The answers will come.
MasyaAllah. And just a week ago, I stumbled upon this book in the library and lo & behold, the words I read in there were as if it was written for me. Its from the book Knowledge & Wisdom by Imam al-Haddad. Here goes:
“Anything carrying a risk should be avoided and not chased. So be content with safety, for it is one of the two gains. You may hear, for instance, of the recompense that reach those who patiently endure trials and illnesses. You may desire it and hope to win the goodness of such things, only then to be tested and find yourself unable to endure patiently. The Messenger of God, may blessings and peace be upon him and his family, often encouraged and prompted people to pray for well-being. It suffices you to have the intention and sincere determination that, should God test you, you would be patient and endure in expectation [of God’s grace]. Meanwhile, pray for well-being and use it as a support in obeying God and seeking His good pleasure.”
SubhanAllah. Indeed, the answers will come. And I hope that anyone who’s also thinking the same thing (which is, “why am i not being tested? does Allah not love me?”), STOP IT. Don’t think like that. Allah loves us all. Be grateful at all times and never, ever have a bad opinion of Allah. If you should have a bad opinion, point it inwards.
Thank You Allah for giving me the answers whenever I have any doubts. Never forget me so that I may never forget You. May Allah accept our taubah and let us be steadfast in His Deen in good times and in bad times. Make us grateful servants Ya Rabbi.
Have a good Jumaah you all! :)
