لَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا ٱلْإِنسَٰنَ فِى كَبَدٍ

Laqod kholaqnal insaana fii kabad.
Sesungguhnya Kami telah menciptakan manusia berada dalam kesusahpayahan.
We have certainly created man into hardship (Al-Balad: 4)

Humans are never free from worry. The richest one is worried about their relationship with their family members, and it might not be worrying to you – but it is extremely worrying to them.

The worries in the world are contrasting and scaled in many ways. Some people might be worried that they will be tortured in the next few minutes like many Muslims in the secret prisons, whereas another worries about why their carpet and curtains don’t match.Each person has their own form of enormous struggle in life.

So why not strive for the greatest of good deeds which hold the greatest rewards? Because aren’t you going to struggle – no matter what – anyway? (Mufti Muhammad Shafee’)

Bagaimanapun, tanpa kita minta, ada waktu-waktu di mana kita berada dalam kesulitan dan kesusahpayahan. Tugas kita adalah memastikan bahwa kita bersusah payah  dalam beribadah, beramal shalih, belajar, berkarya, dan berkontribusi dalam kebaikan — bukan dalam keburukan atau kesia-siaan. Kemudian memohon pertolongan padaNya.
