  • Impatient at the first strike of trial

    Assalaamu alaikum,

    Just wanted to ask this question - can you still get rewards if you act impatiently at the first strike of trial? Like you despair and then see the problem in that - and then try to become more patient?

    Cos I have read in some hadiths that patience in the first strike of trial is rewarded with Jannah
    وَاقْصِدْ فِي مَشْيِكَ وَاغْضُضْ مِن صَوْتِكَ ۚ إِنَّ أَنكَرَ الْأَصْوَاتِ لَصَوْتُ الْحَمِيرِ - 31:19

    And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys."


    أَلَمْ تَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُ ظَاهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ - 31:20

    Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him].

    The initial reaction might get the best of you but then you have to train yourself to think it through and know that nothing happens except with the Will of Allah and then you have to submit to His Decree and have patience in bearing it. Very few are blessed with initial contentment and indifference to a trial. And Allah Knows Best.
