“Life is unbearable!”

by Umm Muawiyah

Assalamu Alaikum.

Other variations include:

“I can’t take it any more!”

“The pain is unbearable”

And on and on we go…..

These are very common statements.

And these are also very dangerous statements.

Why? Because they contradict the words of Allah.

Allah says:

“Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope.” [Surah Al-Baqarah (2) : 286]

“Allah puts no burden on any person beyond what He has given him. Allah will grant after hardship, ease.” [Surah At-Talaq (65) : 7]

What does this mean?

Simply put, it means that your life will NEVER be unbearable, and you will not be tested beyond what you can actually handle.

So, don’t ever say: “Life is unbearable!”

Rather say: “Life is bearable, alhamdulillah!”

    Assalamu alaikum. When i opened my inbox, i read “life if beautiful”, so i am reading the post and at the end i realized that i didn’t read properly the subject which made me laugh how silly i am, but at the same time it made me laugh how positive i am. Life is definitely bearable and beautiful, alhamdulillah.

      Wa Alaikum Assalam.

      When I first read your comment, I thought “Oh no! I mistyped the blog title!”. Then I read the rest, alhamdulillah….

      And yes, alhamdulillah, life is bearable and beautiful.
