Any difficulty that Allah bestows upon us is injected with a lot of compassion and mercy from Allah. Allah’s name is Al Latif, the Gentle, the Compassionate.
We know the story of Ibrahim (AS) when his people threw him into a fire. Ibrahim is in a big difficulty at this time but Allah is gentle with him. Allah commands the fire to be cool and peaceful. Why did Allah be gentle with him?
When Ibrahim (AS) was thrown into the fire he said: “HasbunAllahu wa ni’mal Wakeel — Allah (alone) is sufficient for us, and, He is the best Disposer of affairs.” The first thing on his mind was Allah so he deserved the ultimate protection.
We all wish for Allah’s companionship but we will only get that when we say this dua when we are faced with difficulty.
