wait for the relief

{So verily, with the hardship, there is relief}
~Surah Ash-Sharh, 94:5

Shaikh Ibn al-‘Uthaymeen:

“This statement is news from who? From Allaah عز وجل. And His news is the truest news and His Promise is never broken. So every time things become difficult for you, wait for the relief. Every time things become difficult for you, wait for the relief.”

Shaykh ‘Abd ur-Rahmaan as-Sa’dee (rahimahullaah) comments:

“{We gave him (back) his family}: it is said that Allaah, ta’aala, brought them (back) to life for him, {and along with them the like thereof } in this world, and Allaah gave him great wealth; {as a mercy from Us} on Our slave Ayyoob since he was patient, so We rewarded him out of Our Mercy (both) in this world and in the Hereafter; {and a reminder for those who understand}: meaning, so those of intellect will remember the condition of Ayyoob and take it as a lesson, and know that whoever is patient upon adversity, then Allaah, ta’aala, will reward him in this world and in the Hereafter, and respond to his supplication when he calls upon Him.”

“Allaah will grant, after hardship, ease”
~ Surat ut-Talaaq, 65:7

Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) comments:

“Will this straitened (circumstance) remain? No. {Allaah will grant, after hardship, ease}. Just wait for the relief and be truthful with Allaah, and {Allaah will grant, after hardship, ease} and {Indeed with every hardship will be ease, indeed with every hardship will be ease}. This promise is only for the one who waits for the relief from Allaah and trusts in Allaah’s promise. But the person for whom Allaah makes (something) difficult, and he despairs of His Mercy and thinks that relief is unlikely – refuge is sought in Allaah – then the situation will not be made easy for this person.”

the second step: sabr and ihtisaab

“How does a Muslim deal with trials?”

Shaykh Muhammad Sa’eed Raslaan (hafidhahullaah) comments:

“The second step is: sabr (patience) and ihtisaab (hoping for the reward of Allaah).

This patience will place the slave in the ma’eeyah of Allaah, subhaanah (i.e., Allaah will be with him), as confirmed by Allaah’s, jallat qudratuh, statement: {Allaah is with those who are patient}. This is a special ma’eeyah, one of support, help, and it is more special than the general ma’eeyah: {He is with you wherever you are}. This is the general ma’eeyah, as for the special ma’eeyah, it is: {Allaah is with those who are patient}. Likewise, along with this (special) ma’eeyah, Allaah, tabaarak wa ta’aala, has made (the patient one) from those whom He loves: {Allaah loves those who are patient}.

And a person should be certain that with hardship comes ease and that with hardship comes relief, and that Allaah, subhaanahu wa ta’aala, is the One who removes his adversity and distress – {if Allaah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him} – and (a person should be certain) that Allaah’s, tabaarak wa ta’aala, Mercy will encompass him as He, subhaanah, is {the One who sends down the rain after they had despaired and spreads His Mercy}. And He, subhaanah, said: {Allaah will bring ease after hardship}. And He, jallat qudratuh, said: {Indeed with hardship comes ease. Indeed with hardship comes ease}. So the One who brings ease after hardship, removes the hardship, and lifts the distress, it is Allaah, subhaanahu wa ta’aala.

And from His, subhaanah, Absolute Mercy is that He expiates the previous sins from the one who is afflicted with this trial. So a person should know that this trial is only for expiating his sins. And he should know that the reward of the one who is patient is the attainment of Allaah’s Pleasure and Paradise: {Indeed, I have rewarded them this Day for their patience – that they are the ones who are successful}. So Allaah, tabaarak wa ta’aala, has made the reward for patience to be the attainment of Paradise and eternal life in everlasting delight.”
