We shall never be deprived of good by a Lord Who laughs.

Allah has blessed us with the beautiful life and above that—people who are born Muslims are more blessed. Islam is a great blessing of Allah and enchancess the human life with peace, prosperity and tranquility of the soul.

Humans are ashraful maqlooqat (most honourable of the creations) and with that we have a beautiful deen to follow. So how blessed indeed Muslims are.

But in life with blessings comes the trials and tribulations. Muslims also face the trials in life.

As Allah said in the Qur’an, “And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient”. (Surah Al Baqarah verse 155)

Sadly some of us often fail in trials and start getting emotional or loose hope and sometimes even dispair of the Mercy of Allah and loose patience. 

But if we keep patience and take the trials in a positive way we end up increasing our faith and in returning to Him and making supplications (dua) we rise our hopes and become fearless of the calamity thus hoping great rewards from Allah. 

Allah is the Most Merciful and Most Forbearing. He doesn’t rest his slave more than he can bear. 

As Allah said in the Qur’an 
Say: “O ‘Ibadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surah Az Zumar, verse 53)

Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. (Surah Baqarah, verse 286)

Narrated by Waki bin Hudus that his paternal uncle Abu Razin said: “The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: ‘Allah laughs at the despair of His slaves although He soon changes it.’ I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, does the Lord laugh?’ He said: ‘Yes.’ I said: ‘We shall never be deprived of good by a Lord Who laughs.’” Sunan Ibn Mājah 181 – Graded Hassan.

Subhan Allah! 

“Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people.”
