Trials are gifts from Allah to the believers by Sheikh Moutasem al-Hameedi.Ultimately, there is so much wisdom and benefit in trials. Unfortunately, most of us are shortsighted not to notice that. The trial has been tailored for you according to your faith. So look at it favourably that Allah has wisdom behind that. If you don't maintain this outlook on trial, the trial will turn out to be a punishment for you and you will miss out on all the advantages from it."I am to my servant as he thinks about Me." - Hadith QudsiMany times Allah sends opportunities our way, and when we see them, we consider them to be trouble, we consider them to be problems, we consider them to be challenges that will wreck and destroy our life. But in reality, these are gifts from Allah.The companions of the Prophet (saws) were tortured and killed in front of his eyes. What was the outcome? The best nation ever brought forth to mankind. History was written with actions of the companions of the Prophet (saws) who went through these very trials.so if Allah wants to transform you. Allah wants to make you a better Muslim. You cannot ascend to a higher level of faith, skill and personal strength. If you settle for complacency and you feel relaxed and you don't want to get out of your comfort zone, Allah sends trials your way so that you transform yourself. So that you become a better person.For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease. Indeed, with hardship [will be] ease.
