You Are Stronger Than You Think

Surah Al-Baqarah

لَا يُكَلِّفُ ٱللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا ٱكْتَسَبَتْ ۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَآ إِن نَّسِينَآ أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَآ إِصْرًۭا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُۥ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِۦ ۖ وَٱعْفُ عَنَّا وَٱغْفِرْ لَنَا وَٱرْحَمْنَآ ۚ أَنتَ مَوْلَىٰنَا فَٱنصُرْنَا عَلَى ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلْكَـٰفِرِينَ

God does not burden any soul with more than it can bear: each gains whatever good it has done, and suffers its bad- ‘ Lord, do not take us to task if we forget or make mistakes. Lord, do not burden us as You burdened those before us. Lord, do not burden us with more than we have strength to bear. Pardon us, forgive us, and have mercy on us. You are our Protector, so help us against the disbelievers.’ [2:286]

God does not burden any soul with more than it can bear

This one sentence alone should put ease in your heart. Allah tests us and puts us through only the trials He knows we can get through. We will all go through tests in our lives, some small, and easy to deal with but some will be big and seemingly impossible and we can become burnt out from trying to get through what we are struggling with. But know that by putting your trust in Allah, you will get through it.

I remember going through something a couple of years back and only Allah knows how hard I tried to fight it but I was becoming so tired, so weak of dealing with it. I cried and cried until I reminded myself of this promise from Allah. This ayat. And SubhanAllah, I felt at ease knowing that I will be okay. I will get through it and I did. Alhamdulillah.

I'm sharing this as an example that you can do it. You are strong. You are capable of overcoming your biggest tests in life. I believe in you and so does Allah (SWT).
