Why does Allah put us into such difficulties?
This is the wisdom of Allah subhana wa Tada who is Al Hakim that we need to understand.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah tests those whom He loves and whomever he loves, he puts them into difficulty. This is a part of our understanding that needs to be firm with us, especially when we see what's going on in the world. And you might have horrible tests going on in your own life. I want you to think about something for a moment. I want you to think about the fact that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has seen your entire life, he seen everything you will ever do unto the day you die. And I know many of you have been making dua for Allah to take you to Jannah I know people around the world are making dua to Allah, all Muslims make dua to Allah, for Allah to take
them to Jannah. And maybe, maybe on the Day of Judgment, it will be that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will remind you that he saw your entire life, he saw everything that you would ever do. And he knew, in his infinite wisdom, that you would not do enough good deeds to make it to paradise. You wouldn't do enough good deeds to tip your scale the men on the side of good heavy for you. And what did he do in response? He wanted to answer your DUA, he wanted to answer the DUA that you had to give you, Jana. So he puts you into difficulties. He puts you into test, he put you into trials, he put you into tribulations, because those trials and tests and tribulations or punishments for our
sins, either do one of two things, they either lighten the load and the burden on the side of bad of our scale. Or they add to the heaviness of the side of the good of the scale. So what if Allah shows you your life and says, Without these difficulties, you wouldn't have made it. So I put you into difficulty I tested you, I punished you. So therefore your scale of good deeds is heavy today, and you can enter into paradise. Would you regret any of it? No, we wouldn't. We wouldn't regret a single bit of it. We would actually wish that we could come back and do more and go through more difficulties and go through more hardships. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when
those who were not tested, see those who were tested and the reward that Allah has prepared for them on the Day of Judgment, they will wish that they could come back to this earth and have their skin torn into pieces for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, so know that if you are being tested, if you are being put through difficulties, if you see our brothers and sisters being put through difficulties, it is because Allah loves them and wants to answer the door of Jannah. The path to Paradise is not an easy one. It is not an easy one. It is surrounded by hardships, it is surrounded by difficulty it is surrounded by trials and tests. So if you're going through those, know that
you're on a path to paradise in sha Allah, and be patient with Allah and thank Him for it and have gratitude for everything the good and the bad. Allah knows his wisdom is above all things.
