We often blame others for our problems and misfortunes. We forget that even a leaf cannot fall down from a tree without the will of Allah.

Allah tests people in various ways and if a person can come to understand this, they would cease from complaining.

Many questions come to our mind when life tests us…

1) WE ALWAYS ASK: Why was I tested?

Allah answers in the Qur’an:

“Do men think that they will be left alone saying, ‘We believe’, and that they will not be tested? We did test those before them, and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false.”  Surah Al-Ankabut [29:2-3]

2) WE ALWAYS ASK: Why don’t I ever get what I wanted?

Allah answers in the Qur’an:

” It is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and that you love a thing, which is bad for you. But Allah knows, while you know not.” Surah Baqarah [2:216]

3) WE ALWAYS ASK: Why was I burdened this way?

Allah answers in the Qur’an:

“Allah does not place a burden to a soul greater than it can bear. It gets every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns.”

Surah Al-Baqarah [2:286]

And,

“So verily, with every difficulty there is relief: (repeated) Verily, with every difficulty there is relief.” Surah Sharh [94:5-6]

4) WE ALWAYS ASK: Why am I losing hope?

Allah answers in the Qur’an:

“So lose not heart, nor fall into despair: For you will be superior if you are true in Faith.”  Surah Al-Imran [3:139]

5) WE ALWAYS ASK: How can I face it?

Allah answers in the Qur’an:

“O you who have believed, persevere and endure and remain stationed and fear Allah that you may be successful.” Surah Al-Imran [3:200]

And,

“And seek (Allah’s) help with patient, perseverance and prayer: It is indeed hard, except to those who bring a humbly submissive (to Allah).”  Surah Baqarah [2:45]

6) WE ALWAYS ASK: What do I get from all these?

Allah answers in the Qur’an:

“Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and properties (in exchange) for that they will have the garden (of Paradise)…”  Surah Tawbah [9:111]

7) WE ALWAYS ASK: On whom could I depend?
Allah answers in the Qur’an:

“(Allah) suffice me: there is no God but He: On Him is my trust- He the Lord of the Throne (of Glory) Supreme.”  Surah Tawbah [9:129]

8) WE ALWAYS ASK: But I can’t take it anymore!

Allah answers in the Qur’an:

“…and never give up hope of Allah’s Soothing Mercy; truly No one despairs of Allah’s Soothing Mercy, except Those who have no faith.” Surah Yusuf [9:87]

And,

“Despairs not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives All sins for He is Often- Forgiving, Most Merciful.”  Sarah Az-Zumar [39:53].
If Allah loves you more than the others, He will test you more than others! Stop asking ‘Why Me?’ Instead praise Him more and more!
