Pearl of Wisdom

'The attribute of a man of intellect is that he is clement towards one who behaves rashly with him, overlooks the fault of one who wrongs him, is humble even towards one who is lower than him in rank, tries to get ahead of those above him in his quest for good. Whenever he wishes to speak, he contemplates: if what he wants to say is good, he says it and benefits as a result, and if it is bad, then he keeps quiet and remains safe as a result. When a temptation arises before him, he holds fast to Allah and guards his hand and his tongue: if he sees virtue in it, he seizes it, neither losing his modesty thereat nor displaying any greed. These are ten qualities by which a man of intellect may be known.'

Prophet Muhammad al-Mustafa [sawa]
Tuhaf al-'Uqul, p. 28

Answer: Alaykum Salaam Sister,

Inshallah this find you in good health.

Allah (swt) in the Holy Quran mentions "...No soul shall have a burden laid on it greater than it can bear..." [2:233] and "Allah does not impose upon any soul a duty but to the extent of its ability..." [2:286].

These two ayah's demonstrate Allah's awareness of the hardship we may face in our lives, and He has assured us that we can bear them, otherwise it would be unjust on His servants.

Also mentioned in the Holy Quran, "He created death and life that He may try you - which of you is best in deeds, and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving" [67:02].

This ayah demonstrates all the hardships we face is but a test from Allah (swt). Complimented with this ayah "Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently perserve" [2:155].

This last ayah proves that there is light in the end of the tunnel, if we preserve patience and are thankful to Him.
