    Imam Ibn Qayyim said, "For as long as the servant breathes, he requires Allāh's assistance, inwardly & outwardly. He is in complete poverty before Him."

      I am always shocked to discover how many people believe that hardships are a punishment from ALLAH!

      When people face tests or see others facing tests, they assume Allah must be angry with them.
      SubhannAllah!

      Remember which people were tested the most: The Prophets! And they were the closest to Allah.


      Every hardship is good for you—if it brings you closer to Him!” — Yasmin Mogahed
      I see it as, hardships can be purely tests that result through no fault of your own but Allah gives as an opportunity, or they are both a punishment AND a test.

            Umar bin Khattab (radiyAllaahu 'anhu) said,

            "We were a people who lived in humiliation before, and Allah gave us honor through Islam. So if we seek honor through anything else other than what Allah has honored us with, then Allah will humiliate us".

            [Mustadrak Al Hakim 207, Sahih by Ad Dhahabi in Talkhees and Sahih by Albani in Silsilah Sahiha 51]

                What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked Allah for yesterday?

                    "When a person commits a sin, this is accompanied by darkness. Indeed, disobedience is like a fire, and darkness is its smoke. It is like someone kindling a fire in a room for seventy-years. Do you not think that the roof of that room will be blackened? In the same way the heart is blackened by disobedience. And nothing wipes it clean except repentance to God. Humiliation, darkness, and being veiled from God are thus natural accompaniments of disobedience. But when you repent to God, the effects of these sins disappear.” - Ibn Ata’illah

                            “The Heart, in its journey to Allah (swt) is like that of a bird:
                            Love is its head, and fear and hope are its two wings. When the
                            head and two wings are sound the bird flies gracefully; if the
                            head is severed, the bird dies; if the bird loses one of its wings, it
                            then becomes a target for every hunter or predator.” - Ibn Al-Qayyim
