Dissatisfaction is a trap of the devil (13-5)

The devil prevails in his subjugation of man most often in two areas: dissatisfaction and desire. In these instances he finds his prey to be extremely vulnerable, particularly when displeasure becomes deep-rooted. At this point, he says, he does, and he thinks that which displeases his Lord.
The death of one’s dear is something that might lead to resentment in a person’s heart.
in such a situation regarding which most people are resentful and which causes them to say or do that which is displeasing to their Lord, they must not say anything except that which pleases their Lord.
If one were to keep the following three matters at his fingertips when he is displeased and angry about what has happened to him, then the burden of his calamity will lighten significantly.
They are:
1. To know and to believe in the wisdom of GOD, and in the fact that He knows best what is good and beneficial for His slaves.
2. To be conscious of the great reward and recompense that GOD promised to the slave who becomes afflicted and is then patient.
3. To know and accept that rulings and judgments are with GOD, while submission and obedience are for His slaves.
