So, verily, with every hardship, there is An Ease

Allah says in Quran : Surely there is ease after hardship. Aye, surely there is ease after hardship. [94:6-7]
Meaning that there are two ease after one hardship. Thus one hardship can never take over two ease

Allah says He test us like the people before us were tested like the Tribe of Bani Israel, etc
And verily We shall try you till We know those of you who strive hard (for the cause of Allah) and the steadfast, and till We test your record. [Quran 47:31]
"Do the people think that they will be left to say, "We believe" and they will not be tried? But We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars." [29:2-3]
"Do you think that you will enter Paradise without any trials  while you have known the examples of those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with suffering and adversity and were so violently shaken up that even the Messenger and the believers with him cried out:  "When will Allah's help come?"  Then they were comforted with the words,  Be aware! Allah's help is ever close.  [Al-Baqarah - 2:214]

At a time in which the Muslims are beset with trials from every periphery, it is a time when Muslims should continue being Muslims, and a better Muslim.
“Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "If Allah wants to do good to somebody, He afflicts him with trials."  ” [Bukhari Book 70 Patient, Hadith Number 548]

Being sad is not encouraged in Islam
"So do not become weak, nor be sad…" [3:139]
“And grieve not over them, and be not distressed because of what they plot.” [16:127]
Our Prophet Sall Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said:
Sadness prevents one from action instead of compelling one towards it. The heart does not benefit through grief.

Muslim should know that a Test from Allah is even a blessing as it expiates sins
Narrated 'Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) Allah's Apostle said, "No calamity befalls a Muslim but that Allah expiates some of his sins because of it, even though it were the prick he receives from a thorn."  [Bukhari Book 70 Patient 544]

A Muslim should recall event of Prophets and Companions when they were tested
Prophet Ibraheem PBUh did not feel its heat because of the help he received from Allaah. “We (Allaah) said : O’ fire! Be you coolness and safety for Ibraheem.” [21:69]
The sea would not drown Prophet Musa PBUH because he uttered in confident, strong and truthful manner: “Nay verily! With me is my Lord, He will guide me.” [26:62]

Quran recalls about the test of Muslims and hardship they faced during battle of Trench and hypocrites were distinguish because of that and Muslim win the battle. Thus with one hardship there were two ease
"[Remember] when they came at you from above you and from below you, and when eyes shifted [in fear], and hearts reached the throats and you assumed about Allah [various] assumptions.There the believers were tested and shaken with a severe shaking. And [remember] when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is disease said, " Allah and His Messenger did not promise us except delusion, And when a faction of them said, "O people of Yathrib, there is no stability for you [here], so return [home]." And a party of them asked permission of the Prophet, saying, "Indeed, our houses are unprotected," while they were not exposed. They did not intend except to flee." [33:10-13]


Prophet Muhammad SAW said to ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas radiyallahu ‘anhu:
“..Be mindful of Allaah, you will find Him before you. Get to know Allah in prosperity and He will know you in adversity… And know that victory comes with patience, relief with affliction, and ease with hardship.” [Tirmidhi]

"Allah puts no burden on any person beyond what He has given him."
"Verily, with hardship, there is relief Verily, with hardship there is relief.” [94:6-7]
“Perhaps Allah may bring victory or a decision according to His Will.” (5:52)
"Allah will grant after hardship, ease."  Al- Quran [at-Talaaq, 65:7]

Do the people think that they will be left to say, "We believe" and they will not be tried? But We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars. [29:2-3]

Allah has tested those who were before us, including the Prophets and those who were with them. Allah will make it clear about the one who has really sold himself to Allah and about the one who only says by his mouth 'I believe, I believe' and he lies with these words. Just hold your heart and see the tests through which Allah has tested the former people with:

Allah does not put believers in hardship for forever. Remember the story of Prophet Ayyub ('alaihi salam), Quran says:
"Similarly We blessed Job (Ayyub), when he prayed to his Lord saying, "Verily, distress has seized me, and You are the Most Merciful of all those who show mercy." We accepted his prayer and relieved his affliction, and restored not only his family but  also as many more with them as a favour from Us  so that it may serve as a reminder to Our worshippers." [Anbiyaa, 21:83-84]

Hardships strengthens your heart, atone for your sins, and help to suppress an inclination towards pride and haughtiness. When you are facing trials and obstacles in your life, do not be despair. Call out to Him and pray to Him. Constantly put Him in your remembrance. When you remember Allah, clouds of worry and fear are driven away, and the mountains that make up your problems are blown away. Do not grieve, for you have Allah to depend on.

Anas R.A reported from the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), in what he reported from his Lord, the Mighty and Majestic.
He said, “When the salve comes towards Me a hand-span, I go an arms-length towards him. When he comes towards me an arms-length, I go a fathom towards him. When he comes towards Me walking, I go towards him running” (Al-Bukhari).

If Allah afflicts you with a calamity, none can remove it but He; and if He intends to bestow a favour, none can withhold His bounty. He bestows it on whomsoever of His servants He pleases; He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.  [Yunus, 10:107]
If Allah afflicts you with any harm, none can relieve you other than Him; and if He blesses you with happiness, you should know that He has power over everything.  [An'aam, 6:17]
Narrated 'Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) Allah's Apostle said, "No calamity befalls a Muslim but that Allah expiates some of his sins because of it, even though it were the prick he receives from a thorn."  [Bukhari Book 70 Patient 544]
