Do tawba What to do if you fall in this category?
Your heart moves closer to Allah at the time of happiness and trial, if your response is right
What is the right response? It maybe that you dislike something though it is good for you. And it may be that you love something though it is bad for you. And Allah knows and you don’t know. QURAN 2:216
Three reasons for thanking Allah even at the time of trouble 1.The misfortune could have been worse. 2.It was in worldly matters and not in spiritual ones. 3.It came in this world and not in the hereafter.

His guardian grandfather then died
We have our parents to give us extra love and support
He lived to see all his children buried, except Fatima (ra)
Seeing your child die
He saw his people turn against him in anger and brutality
How many people do you know who have turned their backs on you ?
We feel crushed when people say mean things to us.
Has anyone ever given you this kind of physical pain?

Our friends are breathing and bouncing around us
His beloved wife, who was his greatest support, died
Abu Talib, his only protective shield, also died
He was penniless most of the time
The Prophet(saw) was the target of several assassination attempts
Snatching of a mobile
How many of us have faced so much ???
This is just not fair !!!
Allah has decreed evil in this world as a test for us
So should we feel happy even when bad things happen to us?
Allah has created a world wherein such things exist
Remember every trial could have been worse
And it came in this world
One day a physician amputates the arm of a patient
We either complain about it We just don’t get it!
