Allah Doesn’t Burden A Soul Beyond That It Can Bear – Trials and tribulations are a part of existence. We do now not like them; we do no longer want to undergo them; but sooner or later we take delivery of them. Even if we pray, speedy, pay our zakat and do all exclusive types of ibadat we nevertheless get tested. Sadness once in a while fills our hearts.
We could be the satisfactory of training Muslims, but negative and unable to place meals on our desk. We can be rich but lonely, or young but bad. It is in these times that shaytan starts off evolved toying with our head. We take a look at what others have, mainly the non-Muslims, and our middle gets rattled.
The shaytan ignites a fire that gets our blood boiling, hopelessness and frustration set in, and we ask “Oh Allah, why me?! Why am I being punished?”

Psychologists inform us that humans undergo five ranges of emotion while struck with a calamity. Understanding the extraordinary stages of grief minimizes the first 4 stages (that are denial, anger, bargaining and melancholy) and receives us to the very last stage – which is recognition. I went thru those degrees on many exceptional events, as I am sure you have got.
I am now not a psychologist nor am I seeking to refute the works of psychology, however I would however want to provide a exceptional view, a Qur’anic view, on the way to address lifestyles’s trials.
Though we do now not have a say in whilst we’re born nor in when we die, existence has a clear starting and a clear quit. What is occasionally doubtful is the adventure among the 2 factors. For Muslims, but, the journey couldn’t be any clearer. Allah says in Surat Adh-Dhariyat:
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
“And I (Allah) created no longer the jinn and mankind except that they have to worship Me (Alone)” (Qur’an, fifty one:56).

Now suppose lower back to the first paragraph of this text. You might think to your self, “I pray 5 instances an afternoon, I rapid throughout Ramadan and pay my zakat, yet I have an sick child, or still can’t find a task, or this stressor or that.” You begin to wonder why you’re going through this and why you’re being “punished.” Before you understand it, shaytan takes the helm and you are on a slippery slope of anger and denial.
Before falling down that slope, one must take a deep breath and ponder the following question: is it punishment or is it a manifestation of what Allah has informed us in Surat Al-Ankabut:
“Do people think that they may be left alone due to the fact they are saying: “We consider,” and could not be tested?” (Qur’an, 29:2)
Allah tells us that through this adventure we call existence we can be examined. In Surat Al-Baqarah, He says:
“And sincerely, We shall check you with some thing of worry, starvation, lack of wealth, lives and end result…” (Qur’an, 2:a hundred and fifty five)
Tribulations are a part of life but that doesn’t cause them to clean. We nonetheless grieve — however how may want to we not? We are, in spite of everything, a totally emotional creation. So how does one cope with adversity? There are many ayat within the Qur’an that talk about distinctive mechanisms of coping which include persistence, religion, prayer and acceptance. But what I discover the maximum profound and the maximum comforting is what Allah says in Surat Al-Baqarah:
لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا
“Allah does not burden a soul past that it is able to bear…” (Qur’an, 2:286).
Allah Doesn’t Burden A Soul Beyond That It Can Bear – If you stand lower back and take a look at the entire photograph, you will understand that what you have whilst faced by means of a tragedy is a choice. Will you go through the stages of grief, denying Allah’s destiny and the wisdom of His plan for you?
Or will you realize that what you’re going via is something you understand you may take care of? Whatever trial comes your way is some thing that Allah has planned and which He has guaranteed you can deal with.
This ayah is reassuring because I, as a loyal mu’min who believes in Allah and His wisdom, realize deep in my coronary heart that despite the fact that the disappointment is bulky it’ll no longer be overwhelming; that despite the fact that the times is probably tough, I am more difficult; and that something comes my way will go away; and that sooner or later I will face my Lord whom, I desire, can be thrilled with me as I am pleased with Him.
So while you go through a hard state of affairs, be it the inevitable dying of a cherished one or the lack of a job or just a flat tire at the side of the motorway, take a deep breath and say:
“Say: ‘Nothing shall ever manifest to us except what Allâh has ordained for us…’” (nine:fifty one).
