‘Thoughts on Pain’
Many want to hate and complain when they feel their pain
Those that do are not so few who see no sunshine only rain
Swallowing pride and forbearing pain most are not used to but
Without pain could we ever really know when we are happy? Without pain could we ever be grateful to our Lord?
Pain is so special cuz it makes you stronger else we remain weak without knowing it.
Pain is important cuz it teaches us what not to do to others and how to be there for our loved ones when they hurt.
Pain is not lonely as it is felt by everyone who has ever loved anyone or anything because loved ones always leave us and loved things never last.
The only time you don’t feel pain is when you love Allah and are attached to Him. We can never lose Him and He will never leave us.
Pain makes us blameworthy if we complain and turn to evil vices to cope because we will not accept our qadr.
Pain makes us praiseworthy if we are patient and welcome our fate knowing Allah is in full control and is testing those He loves most to bring us closer to Him through the test.
With the tests of pain Allah promises in the Qur’an, Fa inna ma’al usri yusra, inna ma’al usri yusra.
Verily, after hardship comes ease, verily after hardship comes ease.
I pray we all pass these tests of pain and that the pain brings us closer to Allah and not take us further. Ameen.
