Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:
The trials and tribulations that one undergoes in life have been predestined and will occur at their appointed time. When one undergoes any difficulty, then for one to experience grief is natural. However, at the time of difficulty, when one turns to Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa, engages in zikr, remains firm on deen and does not leave out the tilaawat of the Qur’aan Majeed, then due to remaining punctual on righteous deeds and being committed to Deen despite the hardship, the rewards of one’s actions will be extremely weighty in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala (and this is the solution for one to gain Allah Ta‘ala’s mercy). In reality, these are valuable moments of acceptance. Hence, one should take advantage of these moments and try to achieve the love of Allah Ta‘ala and the rewards of the Hereafter.
