How People React When Trial Comes

You Can Do It

💠 When it comes to facing trials, people behave in the following ways, and all of these are bad manners with Allaah:

1️⃣. Blaming Allaah for the calamities: Even though the calamities we face are because of our sins, yet we like to transfer the blame on others to feel better.

إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لِرَبِّهِ لَكَنُودٌ

{Verily! Man is ungrateful to his Lord} 📚 [Surah al-`Aadiyaat (100): 6]

Al-Hasan al-Basree رحمه الله said: “al-Kanood”, meaning: ❝The one who is ungrateful. He who counts the calamities (that befall him), and he forgets Allaah’s favors (upon him).❞ 📚 [Tafseer Ibn Katheer, Tafseer Ibn Abee Haatim]

Man has a habit of complaining: “O Allaah! Why does this happen to me?”, “O Allaah! When will I find relief?”, “Why is it always me?”.

2️⃣. We complain to the creation about the Creator: Instead of raising the hands towards Allaah and beseeching Him for our needs, and for relief from our hardships, we complain to the creation that we have been suffering for so long. The whole night we can chat with our friends to get some solacement, but we cannot stand for an hour in the night.

Every night Allaah descends to the lower Heaven and asks: {Is there anyone to invoke Me that I may respond to his invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone asking My forgiveness so that I may forgive him?} 📚 [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree and Saheeh Muslim]

Yet we stay awake the whole night and sleep just before Fajr!

3️⃣. We stop supplicating altogether: The Hadeeth in this regard is well known: Allaah’s Messenger ﷺ said: ❝The invocation of anyone of you is granted (by Allaah) if he does not show impatience by saying: “I invoked Allaah, but my request was not granted.”❞ 📚 [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree and Saheeh Muslim]

In the narration of Saheeh Muslim it is reported that the Prophet said: ❝The supplication of the servant is granted in case he does not supplicate for sin or for severing the ties of blood, or he does not become impatient.❞ It was said: Allaah’s Messenger! what does: “If he does not grow impatient” imply? He ﷺ said: ❝That he should say like this: “I supplicated and I supplicated but I did not find it being responded”, and thus he becomes frustrated and abandons supplication.❞
📚[Saheeh Muslim (6595)]

We are impatient and get frustrated very easily, and when we see there is a delay in the response to our supplications, we get disheartened and abandon supplicating altogether. Except those amongst us whom Allaah تعالى has protected.

We beseech Allaah that He تعالى guides us to always have good thoughts about him.

The Prophet ﷺ said: ❝Let none of you die except thinking positively of Allaah.❞ 📚 [Saheeh Muslim (6875)]

May Allaah accept it from you and us. Aameen

Allaahu Musta’aan
