I would like to share this Hadith with you:
Don’t let trials blow you down; instead let them lift you up! A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor. Every hardship and suffering is an opportunity because it is more than what you see. A moment of hardship is an opportunity to earn higher ranks, it is an opportunity to be patient and earn Allah’s mercy and blessing and Allah’s regard for you. The more the suffering and your patience, the more the blessing. Sometimes Allah tests His slaves with calamities in order to raise t hem in status and to expiate for their sins, as the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “No misfortune or disease befalls a Muslim, no worry or grief or harm or distress – not even a thorn that pricks him – but Allah will expiate for some of his sins because of that.” (Hadith Bukhari)
Therefore, we should endure trials and be patient. Remember Allah Ta’ala sometimes grants the toughest battles to the strongest soldiers and very often violent storms paint the loveliest of rainbows!
