How do we know if it's a trial or punishment?
A sign of punishment is when a believer is restless and constantly complains
A sign of test is that when we are grateful for what we have and show patience. Trial is followed by sense of contentment and ease.
I often wondered about the difference between the two so here's a quick summary of what I found. Hope it helps ❤
Great reward comes with great trials
Allah tests whom he loves (Prophet Muhammad PBUH)
Why are we tested?
3 Possible Reasons
- To Elevate Rank
- To Remove Sins
- To Test Faith
Important: Did the trial bring you closer to Allah?
