in Islam

Tests for a Believer are a Medicine for him

From the Hadith:

When Allaah wills good for His slave, He hastens the punishment for him in this world, and when Allaah wills ill for His slave, he withholds the punishment for his sins from him until he comes with all his sins on the Day of Resurrection. Tirmidhi (2396) Saheeh

Imam ibn Al Qayyim~(Rahimullah) said…

“The Ibtilaa’ [Testing] of the Believer is like Medicine for him!

It cures him from Illness.

Had the illness remained  it would destroy him or diminish his Reward and Level in the Hereafter.

The Tests and the Trials extract these illnesses from him and prepare him for the Perfect reward and the Highest of degrees {in the life to come} !”

Calamities, Trials and Tests are signs of LOVE  FROM  ALLAAH for the Believers. They are comparable to a Cure although it may be Bitter. You accept it because it is from the one whom you Love !

And to ALLAAH  belongs the Best Example.

Allah knows best.
