Saw the below on my friend Facebook, thought to share it:
“When you are hurt by the people who share blood relations with you , recall Yousuf عليه الصلاة والسلام who was also betrayed by his brothers.
When you find your parents opposing you (in deen) recall Ibrahim عليه الصلاة والسلام who was opposed by his own father.
When you are mocked and abused by your own relatives just because you adopted deen over dunya recall Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم who faced the same.
When you are stuck in some problem and find no way out recall Yunus عليه الصلاة والسلام who was stuck in the fish’s stomach.
When you fall ill and your whole body cries with pain recall Ayub عليه الصلاة والسلام who was more ill than you can ever be.
When you see some physical fault in yourself recall Moosa عليه الصلاة والسلام who couldn’t speak properly.
When you feel lonely recall how Adam عليه الصلاة والسلام would have felt when he was sent to this earth alone.
When you can’t see any logic in what’s going on and your heart asks why is this happening recall Nooh عليه الصلاة والسلام who made the biggest ship without questioning.سبحان ﷲ
Allah put all those great personalities in trials so that some day someone like you and me, if faced by any calamity, wouldn’t question “WHY ME?”
May ﷲ Bless all with the correct understanding of His Deen and make us steadfast upon it… Aameen
