Difficulties are Forgettable


What is the difficulty? Difficulties are forgettable. One friend of Allah is saying, Allah SWT will speak to His Angels, to say ‘bring Me one person who has never experienced any pain at all in this world. Bring Me that one.’ There are. No pain, no toothache, nothing. And Allah says ‘every single time, I give him pleasure, every time I give him every pleasure, not a single second in his life he experienced any pain,’ and He tells the Angels ‘take him and just dip him into jahannam, one split second, and to come out.’ The Angel took him, dipped him in the fires of hell, one split second, bring him out, and Allah is saying now, addressing to the servant, ‘O My servant, what are you thinking now, about your life and about your Ahiret?’ He says ‘what life?’ He said ‘all I experienced is just pain. Split second.

Allah is saying to the Angel ‘bring Me one servant that I gave him nothing but pain, no pleasure. Bring him to Me, put him into Jannat for one split second, and bring him out. I will speak to him.’ The Angel did that, split second, took him out, and this servant, who experienced pain throughout all his life, and Allah asked ‘what did you think about your life? What are you saying, now? Did you have pain?’ He says ‘what pain, ya Rabbi? I experienced nothing wrong, just pleasure.’

So now you are here, everything else doesn’t exist. Look to that, insyaAllah. Pain or pleasure, do it for Allah’s Sake. Those people who have trouble dying, it’s when they don’t want to die. They don’t want to die, they don’t want to give up from this life. But if you are understanding this life through the eyes of our Prophet (AS), then you say ‘it’s about time.’ Because he did not choose to live in this life forever. Allah gave him the choice, He says ‘you can live here forever, or you can meet your Beloved.’ He says ‘I want to meet my Beloved.’ This world is not a Paradise. Alhamdulillah. Selam Aleykum.
