The Real Reasons Behind Problems in Our Life

By Editorial Staff

What are the real reasons behind problems in our life? Why do believers suffer?

Sometimes you see someone who is living in sins and transgressions to the bone, yet they have good health, high position, and high income, and acting all high and mighty.

To the extent that you foresee he will certainly experience difficulties.

Sometimes man fancies that if Allah, the Almighty, gives someone money, it will mean that He loves them.

This is not necessarily true.

Allah Almighty says:

“So when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, we opened to them the doors of every [good] thing until, when they rejoiced in that which they were given, we seized them suddenly, and they were (then) in despair.” (Al-An`am 6:44)

It means when Allah has mercy on someone, He will protect them and relieves their suffering.

On the other hand, the unbeliever may be allowed to rise to the top before falling from up high.

So, which is better, to be treated daily? To come out of difficulties one by one?

Every time you err? Every time you are ignorant? Every time you regret what you have done?

Or, otherwise, all these punishments be brought to you with an awful doom?

If you see –feel- Allah watching over you, making reckoning with you for every word, every shortening, every mocking smile, and every sharp comment

If you see Allah the Almighty watching over you, believe that He loves you.

and I swear this is a great news for the believer.

Allah says: And whoever believes in Allah – He will guide his heart. And Allah is Knowing of all things.

He guides his heart to the cause of the calamity. So, if calamity befalls someone, he may ask “O Allah, what did I do?” Where is the wrongdoing?” “What is my shortcoming?” “For what sin?”

Allah the Almighty guides your heart, O believer, when he brings you some adversity, reminds you of some of your mistakes

There is no slip, no beads of sweat, no scratch but for what your hands have put forth. And Allah forgives more.
