These days the only thing I am waiting for is the ease to accompany hardships in my and my loved ones’ lives because Allah’s word can never be wrong. If we are going through hard times, there are meant to come better days. But being impatient, and characterized by human flaws, we keep on wondering WHEN? But reflecting on life today made me understand that ease has its many forms and kinds, not always the same end to every problem.
“Surely, with every hardship there is ease” Al Quran 94:5
“In the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest” Al Quran 13:28
I believe these two verses have a cause and effect relationship. Even if the problems of our lives are not solved (which we may take as the only ease), we can get patience and courage to deal with what life throws at us (which is also a misunderstood form of ease), if we remember Allah as the foremost entity. For me, it is our relationship with God that determines what intensity of ease would be coming our way.
May Allah help all those in need, heal the ill, provide for the poor and help us spread love and kindness among all. Ameen.
