Article: Testing, Afflictions and Calamities

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

If one looks around these days, one will see lots of sad faces.

Apparently, everyone has a problem.

And you know what? It’s true. Everyone does have a problem.

Why is that? Well, it’s because this world is a place of tests, and the next world is the reward based on the results of these tests.

Those who pass get Paradise and those who fail get the Hellfire.

Too often, we forget these simple facts, which is why we need to keep reminding ourselves of the reality of these trials.

So, here’s another article to remind ourselves to be patient at these times. It’s really nice stuff – very simple but very heartwarming.
