How to deal with trials and tribulations of life.

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said: “How remarkable is the case of the believer! There is good for him in everything, but this is not the case for anyone except for the believer. When the believer receives any good, he is thankful to Allah, and gets a reward. And when some misfortune befalls him, he endures it patiently, for which he is (also)rewarded.”
The trials in our life are a means to test our faith and obedience to Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) and earn rewards in this life and the next. Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) also says:
    “And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient.” [Qur’an: Chapter 2, Verse 155]
