I wanted to post this to remind myself first then you all that with every difficulty there is relief. let's analyze this a bit more along with some examples.
allah (swt) says in the quran in surah a'raf (the heights), ayat 42:
"but those who believe and work righteousness, - no burden do we place on any soul, but that which it can bear, - they will be the companions of the garden, therin to dwell (forever). here, allah (swt) is reassuring you that you will only be tested with which you can bear. so when you encounter difficulty, be patient and try your best to resolve the issue. and don't forget to make dua not only when you are in times of turmoil, but of stability and comfort.
practical examples on the top of my head:
1. when you start weight lifting, it's hard at first but becomes much easier through time and consistency.
2. when you first attend a class, it might seem difficult and scary at first, but through hard work and dedication will it become easier.
3. a death of a close one might impact you greatly for the first couple of days, but through dua and patience will it become easier to bear.
i hope everyone learned something today. if not, then at least a refresher. if i made any mistakes, please let me know in the comments and i'll fix it right away!
may allah test us with trials that we can bear and make us among those who are patient, ameen. 🤲
