May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)


By Mufti Muhammad Shafî Saheb RA


According to some narrations, it appears that the hardships of this world are a mercy of Allâh, full of virtues. It is narrated in the Hadîth that the most difficult hardships come upon the Ambiya, alayhi salâm, thereafter upon the Awliya Rahimahumullah, etc. according to their stages.

Apparently contradictory to this, it appears in many âyat and ahâdith that the hardships of this world are due to our sins. According to some Ahadith, it is a sign of Allâh’s wrath.

Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani Rahimahullah has given a beautiful explanation of it as narrated by Allamah Ibnul Jauzi Rahimahullah:

"He says that there are three aspects of difficulties and hardships. In some cases it is a punishment and the wrath of Allâh, in some cases it is a compensation for sins and in some cases it raises the status. The condition of each difficulty can be determined as follows:

If the recipient gets angry on the Taqdîr [predestination] of Allâh and complains about it, then it is a sign of the wrath of Allâh and His punishment. However, if the recipient practises restraint [Sabr], then it is a sign of compensation of his sins. And if with patience, the recipient is also happy and experiences contentment, then it is a sign of his status being raised."

From the above, it is related that the difficulties of the Ambiya and the Awliya RA is of the third type.

May Allâh Ta'ala save every Muslim from this first type. Aameen
