Excerpted from Shaykh Hamza Yusuf's Lecture


1. You realize the power of Lordship over you


2. You realize your abject servanthood and your complete state of resignation and brokenness before the Will & Power of Allah


3. Sincerity to Allah because you have no place of return in putting off or defending against the calamities except to Him


4. You return to Allah and are suddenly fervent in your desire of your Lord


5. It leads to a humbled state before Allah and more prayers through which you’re calling on Allah


6. You’re forbearing towards the one who has afflicted you (you gain the ability to show forbearance)


7. You get to forgive someone (“and Allah loves those who pardon othersâ€). It is the greatest forgiveness when you forgive people who have caused you great calamities


8. You are patient during the tribulation (“and Allah is with the patient onesâ€)


9. You can become happy about what’s happening because you’re thinking about all these benefits


10. You can be grateful for the tribulation because of the rewards gained from it


11. The purification that these calamities have from your wrongs and your sins (ex: a believer is rewarded for any pain he experiences, even the prick of a thorn)


12. The compassion that Allah enables you to show to others in tribulation and the ability to help them


13. They give you the Blessing of having the true knowledge of the extent of well-being and what it is


14. Allah has prepared Rewards for the calamities dependent on how you dealt with them


15. What is hidden inside the Blessings of the folds of these calamities (ex: Allah may love a thing you hate and may hate a thing you love)


16. They prevent you from arrogance, evil, pride, and tyranny


17. Contentment
