Hardships: Blessings in Disguise? (Inspiration)

How often have you been through hardships and wondered why?

In this new episode from the series Inspiration, Muhammad Zeyara goes through a number of difficult situations in a row, and he starts wondering if Allah hates him.

The story starts as he is getting ready to attend a wedding.

On his way, he goes through several difficult situations, as he first tries to stop a fight, and his suit gets messed up.

He then passes by someone with a flat tire, and stops to help, but his clothes get in a worse situation.

He then finds an obstacle on the road, which he stops to move away, and his trousers are torn.

Finally, when things could not get any worse, his car engine breaks down, and he is forced to hike his way back.

However, at the very end, after all these hardships, something positive happens…

Reflections

As commented by Sheikh Omar Suleiman in the last part of the video:

“It might be that you hate something, and it ends up being the best thing that’s ever happened to you.”

Allah (SWT) says in the Qur’an:

“… But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” (2:216)

Now here, Zeyara meets his future father-in-law.

And it might not always end up that amazing, but at the end of the day how amazing is the affair of a believer.

The Prophet, peace be upon him, said because anything that happens to him, he’s always good.

It’s such a liberating feeling to submit yourself to the decree of Allah (SWT), realizing that some things are not going to go the way you plan, and that’s better for you.

And so the Prophet, peace be upon him, told us never to say if; “if this would’ve happened” or “if I would’ve done that.” …
