Life Is A Test And There Will Be No Rest, But…

Happiness : It’s a brand new day ahead!

Hardship : No it’s not. It is the same old day, over and over again…

Happiness : I believe it’s going to be sunny and bright.

Hardship : It will end up raining… It is already cloudy up there.

Happiness : I’m going to start off the day with a big warm smile on my face.

Hardship : I’m off with a frown.

Happiness : Okay, I had enough of you hardship, you really need to learn how to control yourself.

Hardship : I hate myself, I don’t care if I lose myself.

Happiness : No! Do you know how important you are?! Without you, hardship, there will be no challenge and people will just live a boring life. Allah created you hardship in order to test mankind. To test how strong they are and how loyal will they still be to Him even when the harder you hit them, hardship. Hence, have control of yourself for your existance do benefit mankind .

Our Prophet (pbuh) said : “Verily, if Allah loves a people, He makes them go through trials. Whoever is satisfied, for him is contentment, and whoever is angry upon him is wrath.” (Tirmidhi)

Everytime when hardship greet us, we should call upon Allah.

Allah, my heart feels heavy, as if someone is loading weight on it . Allah, my heart is hurting as if someone is stabbing it repeatedly.

Allah, I can feel as if my heart is bleeding. It aches really badly, Ya Latif. Help me, Ya Rahman. I think it’s going to break into pieces. How many times I experienced hardships and I ended up turning to you. How many times had agony chew me and in the end I ended up running to you.

Oh Allah, The God of this non-lasting universe, I pray for strength. I come to realize this worldly life is a dimension where mankind are tested in so many ways. I pray for a strong heart, oh Allah.

This cruel world, this world which is full of hatred might pull me down someday but I do believe as long as I tie this rope of trust to you I will always get through it.

Allah, hold it tighter for me to grasp on it. Allah, thank you for always being there eventhough for thousands of time I turned away from You, but You were always there waiting for me to come back, You always know that I will come back.

There is no love that brings peace except for Your eternal love. Nothing can give me peace except being close to You. The realization of Your existance grows hope within my heart. Indeed, there is a place where I can confess my worries. Thank you Allah for ALWAYS being there.

When God wants you to experience the mistake you made twice or more than that, it means He wants you to really learn from it and to master the skills of going through the same storm over and over again.

However, most of you keep questioning and asking for what is fated, now you are asking why, why? Why must we fall into the same hole for like a thousand times? (just being exaggerative)

My dear, Allah wants to strengthen your heart firmly to its root, without it being shaken. God wants you to truly believe that in every situation that He has puts you in there will surely be a way out, but only if you rely on Him.

He wants you to call His name out. He misses your prayer, you rarely call upon Him, so He placed you in a hardship that will bring you back to Him.

Believe me, when we had finally reached our weakest point, the only thing that we can hold onto is faith. If you believe that you can turn every hardship into a blessing, then there is no doubt you are strong enough to face all the upcoming challenges.

Because my dear, life is a test and there will be no rest. The hereafter will be a rewarding place for those whom strive in this world. InshaAllah, there will be no regrets afterwards in that eternal life where happiness is all there is for the true believers.

So, have faith. Always do have faith. Have faith in Allah, don’t give up on His Mercy as His Mercy prevails His wrath.

“… Bear with patience whatever befalls you….” (Surah Luqman 31:17) and “Be not sad, surely Allah is with us.” (Surah at-Taubah 9:40)

There is no worthy of worship except Allah, the Ever Forbearing, the Most Great. There is none worthy of worship except Allah, the Lord of the Tremendous Throne.

There is none worthy of worship One who sustains and protects all that exists, there is none worthy of worship except You, and by Your Mercy do we seek Your aid.

“So be patient, with a good patience…” (Surah al-Ma’arij 70:5)

Get up after every fall. This world is never meant to be paradise. Embrace your flaws and love who you are. Grow from your mistakes. History is the greatest teacher.


Allah menangguhkan sesuatu untuk sesuatu yang lebih baik, apa yang kau harus lakukan hanyalah bersabar dan bersabar. Benar, ianya payah, hati menjadi parah dan mungkin boleh menjadi barah.

Namun, ketahuilah bahawasanya kesabaran memberi kekuatan, kesabaran memberi keyakinan. Allah tidak akan sekali-kali menganiaya hambanya. Hanya kita yang tidak percaya. Kita yang tidak mahu beriman kepada ketentuan, takdir dan kekuasaanNya.

Terselit hikmah yang indah, kita semua tidak ketahui. Allah sayang, kerana itu dia memberi penangguhan. Mungkin sesuatu itu kamu suka tetapi ianya mungkin memudaratkan kamu dan mungkin juga sesuatu itu sangat kamu benci namun ianya baik untuk kamu.

Berdoalah. Jangan sombong. Rendahkan hati apabila di depan Ilahi. Percayalah, Allah tidak mahu apa-apa melainkan kebaikan untuk kamu. Allahuakhbar.

Aku melihat kau sedang mencari bahagia,
bahagia yang membawa ketenangan.

Tiada erti bahagia tanpa tenang.
Hati ingin bahagia,
tenang juga ingin dirasa.

Bahagia yang kau cari bukan sementara,
tetapi yang kekal selamanya.
Kau tidak mahu yang sementara,
kau mahu yang kekal.

Tuhan sifatnya Baqa’,
kau tidak mahu mencarinya ?
