Ease with Hardship

The Quran says: “With every hardship, there is ease.” (94:5) This verse was revealed at a time when Muslims had to go through many difficulties in Makkah. At that time, the believers had developed complaints, as they were being afflicted with hardship. This is why the above verse was revealed. Here God is saying that He has made the world in such a way that it is not possible that a difficulty would be present without ease. Ease is always present along with a difficulty. Therefore one should keep patience and try to resolve the matter. The Prophet said that a believer relies on patience. This means that in difficult situations, we should keep patience. When we face a problem, we should not try to eliminate the problem itself, rather we should patiently try to resolve the issue.
