No suffering touches a person until it is decreed in heaven. Although the Prophets also experience suffering, but in their case, this is in the form of love. There is a hidden lesson to be learned in the conduct and behaviour of this holy community known as the Prophets, peace be upon them. Certain people, however, are struck by grief, but this is the result of their own doing. Allah the Exalted states:
وَمَنۡ یَّعۡمَلۡ مِثۡقَالَ ذَرَّۃٍ شَرًّا یَّرَہٗ
“Then whoso does an atom’s weight of evil will see it”.
In short, it is incumbent for one to remain engaged in seeking repentance and forgiveness from God. One should always remain watchful, lest one’s sins exceed all bounds and invite the wrath of God Almighty.
(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, Malfuzat, Vol. 2, p. 18)
