    When facing a test, what path should you take?





    When you are facing prolonged difficulty that has a distressing element to it, how do you decide whether to get yourself out of the situation or whether to remain in the situation and see it through until it's over.

    I'd have thought if there was a clear halal way out, then just take it, without a second thought. However, I've learnt even the most obvious solutions are not always the correct ones concerning Islam.

    Does deciding to leave a difficult situation mean that it could be seen as failing a test?
    "O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [An-Nisa 4:135]

    A test where Allah (swt) is testing you but you find a way out of that test or hardship that is a halal way out.

    What if the test was to remain in it, yet you just took the way out?

    By doing that you would have failed the test. How could you have known that?

    Or when it is said that Allah (swt) is testing me, is it more of a testing time and not a literal test?

    Wa aleiykum salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

    I suppose making istikhara in this situation is the best solution in sha Allah
    In August 2014, the Chief of Protocol for the city of Brussels Jean-Marie Pire tore the niqab off a Qatari princess who had asked him for directions in Brussels.
    O Allah , Lord of the seven heavens, Lord of the Magnificent Throne, be for me a support against [such and such a person] and his helpers from among your creatures, lest any of them abuse me or do me wrong. Mighty is Your patronage and glorious are Your praises. There is none worthy of worship but You.
    Ameen

    Sister if there is a halal way out of your difficulties take it

    It's like if you have a sore tooth but you've got Panadol in the cupboard there is no reason to suffer needlessly and not take the painkillers

    Islam is easy but sometimes we as Muslims (myself included) make it difficult on ourselves

    abandons repentance.
    He remains in the state of repentance until the end of his life."

    If there is a way out, and it is halaal alhamdulillaah - then take it. Like brother Eesa said, there's no point in over-complicating/burdening yourself.

    Why be in a state of stress/tension when you don't have to?
