Dear ummatī, you lost your wife?  

 

Sayyiduna Uthman was married to two daughters of Rasūl'Allāh and they both passed away so he stood and cried. What patience! You lost your husband? Jamila lost Handhala in Uhud and she was only married to him for a day so she never married again! What strength! You lost your mother? Sayyiduna Hasan and Hussain lost their mother whilst they were only 7 and 8 and she was the greatest woman created. What a test! You lost your father? Sayyidah A'ishah lost her father whilst he is the greatest man after the Prophets. You lost your brothers and sisters? Sayyidah Fatimah saw 4 sisters and all her brothers leave this world before her eyes and she wept in their remembrance. What Iman! You lost your friends? Sayyiduna Ali saw the departure of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman whilst they were the leaders of the greatest generation. What faith! You have to leave home? They left Makkah. You lost wealth? They lost their lives. You are hungry? They tied rocks to their stomachs. رضي الله عنهم

 

You lost hope due to all the suffering? The sahaba gave hope to the whole of humanity despite their pain. You forgot how to be content due to the hardship. They were not seen except with thankfulness upon their lips.
