The same thing goes when we apply for "Jannah". Although we’re already Muslim, there’s a point in our lives we become full time workers of Allah and begin to comply with all His rules properly. So when Allah sees that, He tests whether we are genuine or not. He puts us in strange situations to determine our reaction. He pressures us a little to see if we’re going to back out or break through. He twirls us in a few circles and we see things a little confusing, just to determine whether we are genuine and if we deserve it. When we pass those minor tests and small moments, Allah grants us ease.
' Verily, with hardship there is relief ' ( Qur’an 94:6 )
That is the promise of Allah. Often we get caught up in the temporary moments of world, and feel like everything is against us. The key is to remember Allah. Remember that these are just tribulations, and these too shall pass. Just like everything else in life that changes, our situation does too. Allah only intends to purify and cleanse us. He’s preparing us for something better. What we’re living in now are “peanuts” compared to the hereafter. Be God conscious, have faith, and don’t give up ! Success is just around the corner if we have patience. Let’s earn Jannah insyaAllah.
