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

  1. To Elevate Rank
  2. To Remove Sins
  3. To Test Faith

Important: Did the trial bring you closer to Allah?
