Today I’m going to be sharing with you seven tips to overcome any trial in your life.
Tip one control your tongue, true patience is at the first strike of calamity, and this is where the golden reward lies.
When the son of the prophet sallallahu alaihi sallam passed away. He said the eyes shed tears and the heart grieves but we do not say anything except what is pleasing to allah.
Tip 2 turn to allah.
إِنَّا لِلَّٰهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
To allah we belong and to him we shall return or alhamdulillah alaa kulli haal.
All praise is for allah in all circumstances.
The more you fill your heart with allah over everything else, the easier allah will make it for you to get through the trial.
Tip 3 trust in allah’s decree.
Remember that allah has decreed this trial for you and his decree is always perfect. Allah is the all-knowing and all-wise, so he has the full picture. Whereas we only see a tiny pixel, even though you might not feel or see the good in it trust that your trial is the best thing in the world for you at that time.
Tip 4 use this trial to get closer to allah.
Don’t waste this opportunity to take your relationship with allah to another level. Through the mercy of allah this trial could be a means for your sins to be forgiven and might be your ticket to jannah.
Tip 5 be grateful.
You might be thinking be grateful for what?
Remember no matter how tough your situation is there are always people who are worse off than you and even your trial could have been worse. Thank allah for the blessings that you do have.
Tip 6 take action.
There is usually some physical action you can take to make the situation better. Focus on what’s in your control and be proactive. If you can’t think of any specific action do more good deeds like helping others or reading the quran.
Tip 7 make dua to allah
Remember that allah knows the pain you’re going through and he is with you. It’s vital to seek advice from righteous friends who will remind you of allah but rely on allah as your ultimate source of strength and comfort.
May allah give me and you the tawfiq to implement these tips.
