Now that when the Going gets Toughest, Allah’s Help is Near.
أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَنْ تَدْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا يَأْتِكُمْ مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ خَلَوْا مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ ۖ مَسَّتْهُمُ الْبَأْسَاءُ وَالضَّرَّاءُ وَزُلْزِلُوا حَتَّىٰ يَقُولَ الرَّسُولُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَعَهُ مَتَىٰ نَصْرُ اللَّهِ ۗ أَلَا إِنَّ نَصْرَ اللَّهِ قَرِيبٌ
Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said,”When is the help of Allah ?” Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near. (Surah 2 Al Baqarah:214)
Waki’ bin Hudus narrated that his paternal uncle Abu Razin natrated that yhe Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, ‘Allah delights at the despair of His slaves which (is exactly when) He soon changes it (their despair to relief).’
I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, does the Lord laugh?’
He said: ‘Yes.’
I said: ‘We shall never be deprived of good (when we have) a Lord Who laughs.”
[Sunan ibn Majah, Vol. 1, Book 1, Hadith 181]
May Allah pour patience on us and make firm our feets, and protect us from giving up and turning away from the mercy of Allah.
