There comes a time when everything seems to be going the wrong way. There is pain in every step, tears in every breath, and confusion in every word. The road that you travelled on so smoothly is now blocked---causing you to stop with no where else to go. Your plan becomes so shattered and you start to question if all that you did was worth it. Some of us question Allah and ask "why me." We do the whole "I have been so good, I prayed every step of the way, I asked for guidance and so on." We plead not with duas but with questions! We plead and we wish our plan stayed as is--that nothing changed. However, for many of us, we have led a pretty easy life---tested for the first time; yet we have the guts to question Allah.
I need you to take a moment and think about the last time you asked Allah if you really deserve all the blessings He (SWT) has bestowed upon you? Did you ask Him if you deserve to have a good sight, good hearing, close family, good friends, good education, food on the table, cloths, roof above your head, and most importantly ISLAM? Do you deserve all those blessings? None of us do, but He (SWT) gives, gives and gives us more than we can EVER be thankful for----but the moment one thing goes wrong...We start to blame Him, to question him, to question His trials. But who are we to do that? Think about your worst situation and compare to all the blessings you have! You will then see that you need not to question but to be thankful for everything.
Maybe thats too hard to do, after all we're all humans and we do not always think about blessings when we're going through a lot of pain. Lets take another approach--everything thats happens to us is a test right? Some are harder than the others and others seem un-bearable. Concerning trails The Prophet (Peace be upon him) once said,
Now open those closed eyes and know that in that blocked road, we have a way out. Through sabr, we can overcome our trials and we shall be rewarded in this world and the hereafter. So, the next time YOUR road becomes blocked, remember Allah's love:)
And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirun (the patient)".
