With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura Fussilat (41)
When trouble touches man
41:49. man does not weary of asking for good (things), but if ill touches him, He gives up all hope (and) is lost In despair.
41:50. when We give Him a taste of some Mercy from Ourselves, after some adversity has touched him, He is sure to say, “This is due to my (merit): I think not that the Hour (of judgment) will (ever) be established; but if I am brought back to My Lord, I have (much) good (stored) In His sight!” but we will Show the unbelievers the truth of all that They did, and we shall give them the taste of a severe penalty.
This is typical of one who is ungrateful to God. When he experiences challenges in life, he becomes full of despair instead of persevering and maintaining his trust in Allah(2:153). When he becomes successful, he becomes arrogant and attributes his success to himself, forgetting that all success is from Allah. Such people prefer indulging in the life of this world without any moral constraints, hence they doubt the reality of the Akhirah. Let us bear in mind not to loose hope in Allah’s mercy or to become arrogant when bestowed with material success.
Salaam / Peace.
