At the most difficult of times and in the most testing of circumstances, while the Muslims were being besieged by the Confederates (al-Ahzab), the Prophet ﷺ gave his Companions the good news that Syria and Yemen would be opened to Islam.
Allah’s saying: “Indeed with hardship comes ease” was thus manifested in his noble state.
Similarly, the believer finds deep certainty within himself at times of crisis, and his inner state proclaims:
‘If tribulations increase in severity, they will then depart and the coming of dawn is close.’
—Habib Ali al-Jifri (may Allah preserve him and benefit us by him)
