2 Muharram
Wednesday, November 6, 2013
Assalamualaikum, alhamdulilah masih diberi peluang untuk bernafas pada hari ini 2 Muharram 1435H. Syukur syukur! It has been awhile since my last post. I kinda miss blogging hehe oh yea! PMR is over! alhamdulilah everything went well, I really hope for the best, InsyaAllah :) Allah knows whats best for all of us! I wanna share something with all of you, one thing that I have been thinking lately. It happened to me too, to all of us. Human beings. When we're depressed, we always blame others. Why am I tested? Is Allah angry with me? Why me? It's irrelevant how some people think that there is no way to be happy. Allah is waiting for you to praise Him.

“Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said, 
‘When is the help of Allah?’ Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near.” [Qur’an, 2:214]

But why?

Everything happens for a reason. Tests are a way to purify us. As the Phophet SAW said, 

No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that

Our aim is to earn Allah's pleasure & Jannah (the paradise) and that's why we have to seek for forgiveness regurlary to keep us close to Allah. If we feel that we're far away from Him, the test is usually to bring us closer to Him because humans, like us tend to forget Allah when we're happy. The fact is undeniable. It reminds us that no one will be there for us everytime except for Him.

And for some people, it's to test their resilience. Do we only remember Allah SWT in times of ease and leave the good deeds when we are tested? When Allah is testing you, it means that He loves you and He wants you to repent. He misses your tears of sincerity. Ask for forgiveness not only when we are in hard times, do it regularly. 

The Prophet ﷺ said, “When Allah loves a servant, He tests him,” [Tirmidhi]. 

Do not give up, chin up! May Allah bless us & make us of those who constantly turn to Him, in hardship & ease. Amin.
