While reading this message i came across this ayah from the Quran which i was aware of but couldn't cite it as i lacked the knowledge of the source..
Surah 23 Al Muminun, ayah 62:
'On no soul do we place a burden greater than it can bear: before us is a record which clearly speaks the truth. They will never be wronged.'
After pondering on this one tends to notice that the reality of this ayah and the part it plays in our everyday life, we tend to get depressed, feel sad but its never more than we can handle. If we start thinking out of the box we realize there is a reason for everything, and anything done with good intention ends up good.
Often when we are experiencing pain or distress we get depressed and start losing hope and the feeling of helplessness starts to settle in.
A quote from the message:
This ayah provides great reassurance in that Allah SWT in His wisdom knows that whoever the person is who is suffering, they can cope, because after all Allah is the one who created us, He knows what we can bear and what will break us. An example of this is the sheer number of people who have suffered in this world from mental and physical torture and abuse to the extent that many of us feel that personally we would not have been able to live if we ourselves experienced the trauma that these people have lived through. Miraculously so many of these people bounce back, despite being heavily affected by their difficult pasts they are able to progress and learn from their experiences.
May Allah give us the strength, patience and knowledge to conduct ourselves in the best possible way when we experience any hardship, and the wisdom to keep turning to Him for His forgiveness and guidance. Ameen.
