Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My brothers and sisters. This is another verse from the Quranic reflection series and it is from Surah Al Baqarah.

Indeed, I will try you with some fear, hunger and loss of possessions, life and fruit. So give glad tidings to those who are patient, those who when they're struck by calamity say to Allah we belong and to Him, we will return.
These verses address the trials of life. This is verse 155. The first point of reflection is that Allah has created human beings in the life of tests

The law says I've created human beings in strife and struggle and trials, from one level to the other throughout our lives from the time we come into this world to the time we leave it, that's the reality. The second point of reflection, is that the only way to deal with the trials of life is by patients.
And this Patience is a learn characteristic. We should not say, oh, some people are patient and some people are impatient. I'm amongst the impatient people. I just can't be patient. No, we can be the Prophet SAW Selim told us. Well, my ether sambar. You Sabir hula, you pretend to be patient.
eventually it will become a natural characteristic with time.
So it's something we all can learn. The third point of reflection, is that the dua of patience is in the time of trial. And not specifically, only to be said at the time of death. It's for any calamity. Of course, what's going to happen of course, when you say it, you know, when you
drop something, you say in la la una la Roger who gives a who died. That's the natural reaction, because people are used to this use of this dua, only at the time of death, but it is a reminder, we belong to Allah, whatever happens, whatever situation develops,

So, this is advice for us to deal with our trials with patients and at the same time,
not only to be patient, but to remember
that everything is by the will of Allah.
