an arabic wisdom;
“تواضع عند النصر، وإبتسم عند الهزيمة”
Be humble when you are victorious, and smile when you are at loss.
“الشفاء قد لا تأتي بسرعة، ولكن سوف يأتي”
Healing may not come quickly, but it will come.
Look at Muhammad ﷺ . He was the the most beloved to Allāh and was and will always be the best of all His Creations yet Allāh made him to struggle, He made him face endeavors, his life was endangered, people plotted to kill him and until now after 1400 years, still there are people who make a mockery out of him yet he was the most loved to Allāh.
We tend to pamper our loved ones with so much love, that when pain comes to them, they are shattered because they didn’t have the chance to build a wall from pain because of too much pampering. Life isn’t always good, nor does it go on with a straight and smooth path.
Along with our love, we should also teach them how to stand up for their rights, by educating and teaching them with what is in reality, that this life is but a deceiving and temporal, that we all need to struggle, because this dunya is our battlefield, it is where we are to be tested.
So instead of asking for lighter burdens, they asked for stronger backs.
