Live in a world filled with exams.
God in fimannya in the Quran and many hadith of the Prophet Muhammad warns people that live in a world filled with exams and lies of the devil.
As well as school children or students, if they want to go up a class or pass the exam must first take the exam. Likewise, humans if they want to pass the exam and get into heaven certainly must first face the trials and tribulations.
The most severe test is unfortunate, both ill, suffering poverty, earthquakes, bereaved family members, friends left, menggadapi brothers hunks aka stingy, face difficult child was told to pray, wear the hijab, always rude and against the orders of old, slandered neighbors, and other calamities, if all the disaster we face patiently, then we will be increased degree of God and our sins will be forgiven and obtain merit without limits.
Sometimes when we are sick constantly, we can not wait for sickness so we felt desperate and want to die soon, but we are forbidden to ask for death and told to be patient over this tragedy.
Exam is not only unfortunate, but also the enjoyment (Wealth), if we are grateful to be added instead of God. But most of us sometimes do not grateful for the pleasure of Allah like wealth. At the time we diligently pray Duha poor, tahajud, fasting, but when tested with riches, we even forget for providing sustenance to God, the arrogant, leaving Ramadan fasting, prayer lazy, it was driven from the obligation pilgrimage, he even often excursion to the country infidels (vice) not to Mecca and Medina, so sometimes may bekum had repented he died with only a shroud, abundant wealth could not help him in the reckoning (of Judgment).
In order for us to pass the exam, of course we need the key to open the door of heaven. Key to heaven it is a sentence saying Laillahaillaulah Muhammadarasulullah Tawheed (There is no god who shall disenbah, except Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah's Apostle).
Then lock it must have serrations, so you can easily open the door of heaven. Serrations that, of course, praying five times just in time, fasting in the month Ranadhan, pay Zakat, Hajj if able, as well as other practices such as prayer-sunnah prayers, many berinfak, and many other practices in accordance with instructions of the Prophet Muhammad, not the practice of never done the Prophet Muhammad, many remembrance, prayer and beristighfar.
Exams and Disaster Signs God of Love
This is what should be understood every member of the faithful. That trials can sometimes exalts a Muslim on the side of God and a sign that God loves him more. And the higher the quality of his faith, the more severe the test anyway. But the toughest test of this will be rewarded with a greater reward. So that our duty is to be patient. Patience is a sign of faith and perfection atauhidi.
From Anas bin Malik, the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said,
إذا أراد الله بعبده الخير عجل له العقوبة فى الدنيا وإذا أراد الله بعبده الشر أمسك عنه بذنبه حتى يوفى به يوم القيامة
"If God wants the good of the slave, He will segerakan sentence in the world. If God wills evil to him, he would end a reply for a sin he did to be fulfilled on the Day of Resurrection will be. "(HR. Tirmidhi, no. 2396, hasan saheeh said Sheikh Al Albani).
Also from the hadeeth of Anas bin Malik, he sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said,
إن عظم الجزاء مع عظم البلاء وإن الله إذا أحب قوما ابتلاهم فمن رضى فله الرضا ومن سخط فله السخط
"Truly a great reward for a reply to a severe test. Indeed, if Allah loves a people, then He will bring for their exams. Whoever blessing, then he will reach the blessings of God. Whoever who does not love, then God would be angry. "(HR. Ibn Majah no. 4031, Shaykh Al-Albani said hasan).
Avail of the two above hadith:
1- severe accident (in terms of quality and quantity) will receive a great reward reply.
2- Signs God of love, God will test His servants. And Allah knows best the state of his servant. -a Sholih- Lukman said to his son,
يا بني الذهب والفضة يختبران بالنار والمؤمن يختبر بالبلاء
"O my son, know that gold and silver are tested efficacy with fire while the believer is tested with inflicted disaster."
3- Who is pleased with the ordinance of God, he will reach the blessings of God to receive a great reward.
4- Who does not like the ordinance of God, he will have a painful punishment.
5- The trials and calamities considered as a test for the faithful guardians of God.
6- If God wants the good of the slave, He will segerakan punishment in the world to be given the disaster that he did not like that he was out of the world in a clean state of sin.
7- If God wills evil to him, he would end a reply for a sin he did to be fulfilled on the day later. Ath Thibiy said, "Servant of undesirable good, then his future will be rewarded in the afterlife until he came full of sin so that he would be tortured by it." (See Faidhul Qadir, 2: 583, Mirqotul Mafatih, 5: 287, Tuhfatul Ahwadzi, 7: 65)
8- In Ahwadzi Tuhfatul stated, "The above hadith is the urge to be patient in the face of disaster after the case and is not intended to request the disaster came as no prohibition ask this kind."
If you already know the benefits-benefits above, then why should grieve? Patient and continue to be patient, it's the solution.
May God give us taufik in patience when facing disaster. Wallahul muwaffiq.
