Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining!

Problems, difficulties and hardships are the part and parcel of a man’s life. They come into life to teach a man to be strong and overcome his frailty. Also, without hardships, life would become plain, without any ups and downs, analogous to the heartbeat of a dead man. Therefore, difficulties make life lively and energetic.

However, man does not understand this fact and tends to get disappointed and hopeless when storms hit the shores of his life. Take any aspect–education, career, business, relationships or any other–man is ready to give up when faced with a failure, ignoring the laws of nature and the divine promise of Allah. He becomes ready to forsake, quit and give up and succumbs to the circumstances, thereby goes into the abyss of hopelessness. He forgets the beautiful verse of the Holy Quran that says: “Indeed, with every hardship, comes ease.”

He forgets that bright morning supplants night and that beneath every cloud, there is a silver lining. All the struggles and hardships of life can be replaced with glory and success if hope remains alive. Hope serves as the clutches for a man who is injured by the hardships. That is why it is said that where there is hope, there is life.

Therefore, the light of hope must always be kindled in the human heart and must not be extinguished, however difficult the circumstances might become. Historical evidence suggests the same fact and the great names like Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Wright brothers and many others printed their names on history only because they did not give up on their dream. Therefore, keeping all these in mind, a man should give his best in every endeavour he undertakes with unwavering hope that his struggles will bear fruit–sooner or later.

And this is the thing about pain that it demands to be felt, so feel it, cry it out but make sure to hold the rope of hope as tightly as possible.

We have read that “life is not a bed of roses”.
It is clear that life is not only a word it’s a journey from ALLAH to ALLAH with many problems and beautiful moments but here the point is how we will overcome all the stress and live a happy life.

Very beautifully expressed. Just like good days never stay forever, bad days won’t last long. Hardships are only to make us stronger and prepare us for the worst. Think of them as tests by Almighty Allah. No matter how difficult the situation is , never loose hope.
Just a small constructive criticism. You have used the wrong transition word (however) in the line “however difficult the circumstances”. It could be “no matter how …”.
Other than that Really liked the article :clap::blush:
