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.
