What should my first response be when hit with an affliction?

00:00:07--> 00:00:47

Our first response should be to do what Allah subhanaw taala has told us to do, which is to say, in Nan de la he was in LA he Raji aroon, that it is indeed to Allah that we belong, and it is indeed to him that we shall return. So we respond to affliction by reinforcing our faith in Allah by reminding ourselves of who our Lord is, that if our Lord, the creator of this universe, has sent this difficulty my way, then it's got to be good for me. Then it is going to work out. So we respond to affliction with hope and trust in Allah.
