Week Two: Patience During Hardships - Allah Loves You
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "Whenever Allah wills good for a person, He subjects him to adversity."

If you're going through tough times in your life, you might overthink it and feel as though you are not loved. You feel as though you are being put through trial after trial after trial as a punishment. We've all been there. We have all felt this way. Don't let Shaytaan drag you down this depressive state.
Stay steadfast. Stay positive. And most importantly, stay consistent in your prayers and your duas. Allah loves you. And He loves you, even more, when you're being tested by Him.
Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "The amount of reward is in accordance with the amount of suffering. When Allah loves some people, He tries them with affliction. He who then is content (with Allah's decree) has achieved the acceptance (of Allah), and he who is dissatisfied (with Allah's decree) will attain the anger (of Allah)."
