Why does Allah shower all the happiness to certain people and some people get only trials and hardships at every step? Isn’t it easier for happy people to believe in Allah as compared to people who get only trials and difficult time?
Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
Thank you for your question.
We pray that Allah relieve you and one and all from their difficulties and adversities.
It must be noted that Allah works in mysterious ways. Some of the greatest trials are faced by the greatest people such as the Prophets (may Allah be pleased with them), pious and righteous. Both pleasant and adverse situations are a trial from Allah. No matter what the circumstance, be amongst those who thank Allah and pray to Him.
Also remember, the more difficult the trial, the greater the blessings and the reward.
We pray for your success, guidance and prosperity.
And Allah knows best.
