As salaam alaikum,
Long day! I'll keep it short and sweet...
"Do you think that you could enter paradise unless God takes cognizance of your having striven hard [in His cause], and takes cognizance of your having been patient in adversity?" (3:142)
Am I truly striving as hard as I can? Am I patient in my own personal adversity? Good questions...I don't know. Insha'Allah, but I think those are two important points. There are various ways to strive in the way of God, but patience in adversity is something that we all as humans universally struggle with... What could I do to be better?
