God will test us where it hurts the most

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. 

You woke up one morning
Feeling overwhelmed with the bright sunshine
You planned to go out for awhile
And embraced the clear sky.
You got yourself prepared
You wore cheerful clothes
You sang and danced and smiled
Thinking how lovely the day would be.
As you opened the door to walk out
You saw the big black clouds
You heard the scream of thunder
In just seconds, heavy rains started to pour down.
Your hope to celebrate the day was crushed
You are left empty inside.
You built a beautiful house
Near a peaceful beach
The view of the white sand
The sound of the waves and sea
Your heart felt calm
Your mind was at ease
You sang and danced and smiled
Within, you felt grateful and serene.
As you were sleeping one night in the home of your dream
You heard violent storms were coming
You could feel the wilderness of the wind
You felt shaken by the waves that are raving.
In seconds, all of them rushed and crashed into the house
Wiping out and demolishing your territory.
Every part of your home collapsed,
living nothing else behind.
Every part of you seemed lost,
the only thing left was your blank mind.
You lived the life of joy
Always feeling innocently safe
You trusted everything that you see
You believed in everything you heard
You sang and danced and smiled
Thinking that life won’t be that hard
Holding that life won’t injure terribly.
As you were breathing comfortably with such state of mind
Came a shocking tragedy that bashed everything,
simply everything to the ground.
It smashed your past, present and future.
It struck your reality and your dreams.
Till you are stuck in silence and cries.
Till you are numb and not breathing.
You then realized there is nothing, nothing left to be said
Nothing in this world can change the damage done
Nothing can cure the permanently bleeding pain inside.
Nothing can turn back time.
And yes, it is true..
God will test us where it hurts the most
God tests us where it hurts the most
God has tested us where it hurts the most
…where it hurts the most…
