  1. Assalamualaikum… Alhumdulillah !!
    Enjoyed reading it. Very beautiful compilation. Jazakillahi khayran katheeran..

  2. Alhamdulillah we are Muslims we can find answer to every question solution to every problem in Holy Quran and Sunnah of Holy Prophet (PBUH).
    Jazakallah Hu Khairun.

  3. Such a well-explained and thought-provoking article!

    One question has remained unanswered..’why does Allah impose trials on innocent children and people in poverty-stricken areas?’

    I hope my question will not go unanswered. Your article on this issue some 3/4 weeks’ ago, did not explain the above.

    • Dear sister
      Jazakallah khair for your comments.
      As for your questions,
      Everyone has their own share of trial in this life and similar rewards in the Hereafter for bearing those trials. The greatest trial in this world were faced by the Prophets. As prophet (saw) explained that greater trials come to those who are closer to Allah, who have more faith, so that Allah can grant them bigger rewards.

      The trials on innocent children & poor is not a trial on them, but a trial for us, as to how we behave with them.. how well do we take care of them & give them their rights. If everyone in this world was rich, who would we give charity to and earn good deeds. Who would you hire to construct your building?

      Allah has made a balance in life so that the world goes on smoothly… and everyone gets to play their part to earn rewards in the hereafter,,..which is eternal life!

  4. Great made me wake up to face the challenges of life bravely.thanks for publishing such a comprehensive piece of writing.

  5. Asalamualykum…..
    As a beliver we are supposed to have true faith in the decisions of Allah as He has ordained us of. Regarding the trials they are only for the betterment of the beliver. Allah wants his believers to be granted more than they wish so He befalls upon them the trials which are also the part of their journey towards the eternal life of which He has promised. So as a beliver it is our duty to have patience whenever we are striked by a trial and make bounty of dua’s so that Allah will take us out of these trials and will reward us more more better than we have suffered.
    I am also facing a trial may Allah help me to have patiences and all those who are also in any kind of trial. Ameen

  6. Assalam alaikum wa rehmatullahi wa barkatuhu. Alhamdulillah and jazak Allah khair for the post.
    Today’s I woke up with lots of confusion and disturbances in mind what to do which decision will be better for my child’s further studies but after reading your post I am now relax and left the decision to Allah (swt). May Allah help me to take right and good decision.

  7. Salaams. Your article is very very informative as i am going through a phase of depression from
    a two year relationship break up. Please help me heal as this is the first phase of depression and
    i am in my 50s and lonely.

    • w.salam
      Dear sister.. May allah ease your trial. Kindly focus on point number 2. Try to keep yourself busy with your daily duties and spend the rest of your time focusing on your relationship with Allah (swt) and doing dawah activities.

      I know it must be hard for you, but Allah will give you the strength to come out of it.

      take care!

  8. Assalamu aleikum. JazaakAllah kheir for this excellent post. I just came on to this website after having an anxiety attack episode. I usually have them because of my childhood abandonment wounds which I have spent the last 6.5 years in therapy healing fom.

    What I ususally do when I start feeling scared and hopeless, is to immediately tell myself to:

    1. Calm down & take a deep breath
    2. Feel the fear coursing through me
    3. Let it pass through and out of me.

    Then I give myself self-soothing talks. Usually words of gratitude to Allah for bringing me this far, and also dhikr, and just making du’a or talking to Allah SWT like I would talk to a therapist.

    Hope these tips as well as your brilliant post help others In sha Allah :)

  9. Thank you for this great piece it came at the time I needed it the most may Allah bless and reward your humble efforts please whoever is reading this should make du’a may Allah ease my trial and give me sabran jameela jazakumullah khairan

  10. “Do not underestimate dua.”
    This is very vital for us as believers (Muslims). Dua is our only weapon when it comes to the trials and tribulations of the life of this world. In that, we seek how Rasulullah (PBUH) made duas in times of hardships and happiness.

    Late night dua is like an arrow that never miss it’s target. Alhamdulillah! for all my accepted duas.

  11. As salamu alaykum,
    When I first asked Allah to guide me, I lost everything even my mental stability, and I’m still in this hardship.
    Losing everything indeed but to find Everything, and with the beauty of sabr, is priceless alhamdulillah
    But days that go by with difficulty requires reminders such as this one
    thanks a million for this article, it was so much needed.
    Jazak Allah kheir
